Hi I'm Chani

I'm a ballroom dancer, an avid librarian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah, the youngest of five kids. I was going to College, majoring in English with a triple minor in Japanese, Ballroom and Editing. I'm serving my mission right now, Spanish speaking, so I think my Japanese minor will probably change to a Spanish Major. I love dancing, whether it be Ballroom or any other type, and playing Ultimate Frisbee. In short, I just like to be active. I'm a librarian by trade, and I love to read, mostly fantasy! In short, I'm just trying to live the best I can, which is always better with the Lord's help!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but like many rebellious teens I decided to go my own way for a while. At that point, everything in my life went downhill. I didn't want anything to do with God, and everything reflected it. I was always fighting with my family, had rotten luck with boyfriends, friends, and everything else. I was suffering from severe depression, and without hope. It seemed I had hit rock bottom, and I didn't know where to turn. Everything changed after one aweful Christmas fighting with my family. They were asking me questions I didn't want to, or know how to answer. When the missionaries were at my apartment teaching my roommate, I decided to listen. She had some questions that I tried to answer, but more than that we decided to read together. We read the Book of Mormon, and I started to really pray for help. At that point, everything in my life changed. As I started to have a true testimony of the restored gospel, I found peace, forgiveness, and real, lasting happiness. My life turned around, and I will never look back! In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I found my eternal home. The hope of an eternal, happy family. No matter what problems come, I know the best solution is living the gospel of Jesus Christ. He'll never lead us astray, and He knows who we are individually. I know this is the true church, and I'm grateful for a loving father who brought me home again!

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm serving a full-time mission for the Lord, and sharing my testimony of the atonement and restored gospel! There's no greater joy than giving back the gift of freedom and happiness I've recieved! In reality, the gospel has changed my life so completely, and I love sharing that with people! Sharing how the gospel blesses our lives every day, and inviting people to find out for themselves. I live by sharing the joy of the restored gospel, of dedicating my life to the Lord. I love seeing people gain their own testimony, and really taking part in this gospel. How I live my faith is by giving back a small part of what I have been given... which is everything!
