Hi I'm Chelsea

I am a mom, a wife, I'm silly, I love to sing and I love to be in nature!! And....I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am your average, run of the mill mom, and I love being that! My days are full from dusk until dawn caring for my four children, ages 11 to 1. Making lunches first thing, and getting my kids out the door to school is the first order of the day. Then I balance my time out with taking care of me (exercising, reading a book, writing in my journal, etc.) and taking care of my house (laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc.). In the evenings, after the kids go to be, my husband and I take some time to be together. One of our favorite things to do to wind down is watch old movies. A favorite we watched recently is "Roman Holiday." My favorite things to do, when I have time, are to sing and play the piano. When the weather is nice, I love to be outside under a tree. I love trees (and clouds and breezes). I'm also kind of a silly person. I am afraid my kids have learned to be silly and nutty from me! From making up our own words, to dancing silly--it's what we do around here to keep things fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I suppose I am a Mormon, because at first, I was born into a Mormon family and learned the gospel at church and at home. But from the time I can remember it was about more than just being born mormon--I wanted to live it myself--the best that I could. I always wanted to try my hardest to obey God and learn of Him. So I started when I was a kid--reading my scriptures and trying to obey and I felt blessed for doing those things. I've been trying ever since to obey God and to know Him and His Son. Little by little I feel that I do know them. I know they love me and are always there to help me and direct me. I know Father in Heaven answers my prayers. I may have been born mormon, but it is who I am. I am Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that Heavenly Father is real and loves me. I know that They appeared to Joseph Smith and restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth through Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and by trying to do as He did. I try the best I can to make my Savior the center of my life. I read His words in the scriptures daily, pray often and try to act with patience and kindness. I do these things because it makes me feel so much joy and peace. I have had many experiences in my life that have led me to feel sure that Heavenly Father does hear and answer my prayers and that my Savior Jesus Christ is real and that He loves me. Because I know They are really there, it is important for me to stay close to them each day. That is why I strive to live my faith, because it makes a difference in my life and in who I am and in who I can become.
