Hi I'm Chris Schleier

I'm a brother, a son, a best friend, and a poet. I'm 6'10" and I love to play team sports. My name is Chris, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being in nature and spending time with friends and family. I am one of four siblings. My hobbies are playing basketball, football, and other team sports, hiking, writing in my journal, writing poetry, and singing. I am currently preparing to become licensed to sell insurance in the state of Georgia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church, having only been a member since July, 2007. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ, and following the doctrine of the Church has brought me unmatched peace and a fullness of joy. I have a testimony that I know that this gospel is life changing. It has transformed my life. I testify to everyone reading this that the Church and its doctrine is true: That we are, in fact, led by a living prophet in these latter days. The fullness of the everlasting gospel has been properly restored by Joseph Smith. I know, as the Holy Spirit has bore truth of the matter unto me, that Joseph Smith saw our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ in a vision. The Church is true, and everyone that will abide with the gospel of Jesus Christ will experience the same fullness of joy and unmatched peace that I have felt, and continue to feel day by day. In my testimony, I stand shoulder to shoulder with the testimony of the Three and Eight special witnesses to the Book of Mormon (which can be found in the front of every official copy of the Book of Mormon) when they made this statement.... "We know of a surety that the work is true.....and we give our names unto the world, to witness unto the world." I testify, with vigor and zeal, that the Book of Mormon is true. I know and share with you that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus Christ's Church on the earth today, the only church that contains the fullness of His everlasting Gospel. He is the Lord and Savior of every mortal who walks the face of the earth. I speak with absolute certainty. This church is led by divine priesthood authority, even the authority of the Lord, Jesus Christ, which also has been restored. And I willingly give my own name unto the world, to witness unto the world that which I verily know to be true. As stated by the special witnesses to the Book of Mormon I referenced earlier, I know with no doubt that, with them, "[I] lie not.......God bearing witness of it."

How I live my faith

From January 2011-January 2012 I served a church service mission in the Lithia Springs ward in the Powder Springs, Georgia Stake. I did service work in church buildings and in the Atlanta Temple during the day Monday-Friday, and week nights and all day on weekends I spent time doing missionary work. I have a passion for missionary and serving others. I also find it important to keep the covenants which I made when I was baptized into the church, "To mourn with those that mourn, yea, to comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as [a witness] of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in." (Mosiah 18:9) Simply put, my life is a mission. That mission is to share with others the full measure of joy that comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which has been restored in its fullness in these, the Latter-days.
