Hi I'm Chandra

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from college with a degree in Anatomy and Physiology, and am working on a second degree in Medical Laboratory Science. I love drawing, baking, sewing, and watching baseball and college football. I love spending time with my family and preparing myself to have a family of my own one day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. Growing up, it was understood that we would be attending our three church meetings on Sundays. At first, I enjoyed going to church because it meant I got to color during sacrament meeting and see my friends. As the years passed I came to enjoy going to church for the truths that I learned there. I grew closer to my Savior and developed a testimony of my own. I love going to church on Sundays to show my love and devotion to my Heavenly Father and Savior. I find a peace and strength at church on Sundays that allow me to handle the challenges that present themselves during the week. Most importantly, I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I know that if I live the gospel to the best of my ability I will be able to live with my Heavenly Father again for the eternities.

How I live my faith

In my ward my current calling, or duty, is the Relief Society President. The Relief Society is the womens' organization of the church. The Relief Society, as its name implies, was established to offer aid to its members and the community. This aid is not only physical or temporal, we strive to uplift and support one another spiritually and emotionally as well. I love serving with my fellow sisters as we grow together in the gospel! In addition to being the Relief Society President, I am also a Visiting Teacher. As a Visiting Teacher I am given a companion and we are assigned women in our ward to visit every month. We share a message with them from our church magazine, the Ensign, and offer friendship and support to one another. The Visiting Teaching program is a wonderful way to fulfill my duty as a disciple of the Lord, Jesus Christ. My love for Him, and my sisters grow as I fulfill my calling as a Visiting Teacher.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No, young men are encouraged to serve missions as part of their responsibilities as a priesthood holder. If young women would like to serve missions they are welcome to as well. Also, married couples are able to serve missions when their children are grown. Show more Show less
