Hi I'm Chaz

I love new experiences, adventures and ideas. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am an outdoors kind of guy! I love the mountains, rivers and lakes; some of my favorite things to do are river rafting, hiking, camping, biking, snow skiing, wake boarding, long boarding, hunting, soccer, football, tennis and just chillin' with my friends. I come from a large family, so ever since I can remember my Mom and Dad have been encouraging me to "go outside and play", so as I grew up I really learned how to have some fun. I also love hanging out with my family, I can't tell you how many different kinds of games and activities I have played with my family, I love anything and everything that makes me laugh and enjoy my company with my brothers and sisters. Some of the things I like to do indoors is to read adventure novels, play make believe with my little sisters and giving them glorified versions of piggy back rides which in my family I call "Airplane Rides" my little sisters love them, but my Mom usually asks me to slow down, I guess she just doesn't agree with my piloting skills. That's me! I am currently a Full-time Missionary in Tallahassee, Florida. I love my life, my family and my religion.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have read and prayed about The Book of Mormon. It's that simple. God has again Restored His church on the Earth again and has given us evidence of this Restoration through new found scripture(The Book of Mormon), Modern day Prophets(Joseph Smith-Thomas S. Monson) and through the rapid growth and building of Modern day Temples. I have full faith in the LDS Church because I Believe that Jesus Christ is the founder, the Master and the Leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I believe Jesus loves me, I believe that when I repent He can Redeem me, and I know that I have been blessed to feel His love in my life. I am a Mormon, because I have read, pondered and knelt down in prayer to know if The Book of Mormon is real scripture.

How I live my faith

I try my best to not over complicate things that are simple. I live my faith by being myself with the spirit(keeping the commandments). I try to serve others, so that they can have a better day! I don't feel it's my responsibility to do everything for everyone, everywhere; but I do try to do something for someone, somewhere. I also read the scriptures daily and pray daily. I feel more confident about my day when I do and think about these things.

What is faith?

Faith, simply put is. . .Trust. For example: (I trust) that when it rains, if I am prepared with an umbrella, I will be protected from the weather. In a more Spiritual sense: (I trust) that Jesus Christ is able to clean me from sin, if I stop my sinful behavior, ask for forgiveness and promise to keep his commandments. I Simply change the word(s), (I trust), for (I have faith). Try making up your own if,than statements, It has helped me a lot! Show more Show less
