Hi I'm Chad

I love the AZ heat. I am a singer and penguin enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a music lover. Whether it's singing or playing guitar or even trying to play the piano, I'm interested in it. I have taken one semester of college, and I plan on becoming a high school choir teacher. There's something about music that's always uplifted me and made me feel like I know who I am. If I had to pick any other hobby, I'd probably pick spending time with family. Most of the time we kick it and watch movies, or play Wii sports together. That's essentially who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

Since both of my parents are members, I was born into the church. From a young age I was expected, and expected myself, to always be active in the church. When I got older, I began to realize that there were so many different sets of beliefs, and I felt like I didn't know for sure what was right or what was wrong. For awhile my faith wavered. I continued to attend church but wasn't very invested in acting on what I learned. There came a time in my life where I felt so lost - so unsure of the way to go. It was finally time to ask the source of all love and truth, our Heavenly Father. I knelt down and offered a prayer, asking if everything I had learned was true. Was Joseph Smith really a prophet? Did he see God the Father and Jesus Christ? Is the Book of Mormon true? And the answer came. It comes different for everyone, but I know what I felt, and I am sure that it came from my Father in Heaven. That feeling that He has given me has motivated me to act on what I have been learning my whole life.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live my faith in how I treat others. I have been given an assignment in my ward to home teach 6 other members, so I am privileged to visit them once a month and help out in any way I can. Because I have felt so much happiness and peace from the gospel, it would be ridiculous to not share it with others. I look forward to those opportunities when gospel conversations come up and I can invite others to learn more. I attend an institute choir once a week, which gives me great opportunities to be part of the church, but also part of the community. We have sung the national anthem for two ASU basketball games, including a number of other community events. The bottom line is, I can't be a true follower of Jesus Christ if I don't do my best to treat others as He treated them. He is my example.
