Hi I'm Chloe

I grew up in Pennsylvania. I studied Geography. I love my family and genealogy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to the most wonderful man alive, Ryan Coles. He is dashingly handsome and the kindest man I know. I love him dearly. I hail from the beautiful eastern coast of the United States in lovely Pennsylvania. I am graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Geospatial Intelligence. I am currently working for an NGO called Zaytoon International. I will be spending my summers in Jordan teaching the wonderful people there about social entrepreneurship and basic business principles. My husband is starting his Master's and then getting a PhD in Business. Life is wonderful together and it is all thanks to our faith and this Gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it is the only true and complete way to return to our Father in Heaven and be with Jesus Christ. I have come to know the Savior and His love through this Gospel and the experiences I have had cannot be denied. I know this because I lived for so long without knowing the power of His Atonement. Thought I was born a member of the Church, I did not grow up active. I know the emptiness that one can feel when they do not have the Holy Ghost with them. I know the sadness that is a broken heart and one that is anxiously seeking for relief. I know the burden that sin and heartache can be on your shoulders. But, I also know with all my being the relief and joy that can and is felt by one who accepts the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and gains a testimony of His true church. It is overwhelming and enveloping. I do not know where I would be today if it were not for the patience of those around me who brought me back into the Church and into the loving arms of my Savior. I know Jesus Christ lives today and that He loves us. I know He restored His living Gospel to the Prophet Joseph Smith and that He continues to lead and guide His church today through living prophets and apostles. I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I have prayed about it and have felt the overwhelming confirmation of the Holy Ghost that has led me to choose the path of discipleship in this, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the commandments of God every day. I keep myself clean and worthy to have the Holy Ghost with me at all times to lead me to those around me in need. I stay clean by keeping the Word of Wisdom and abstaining from alcohol and drugs. I pay my tithing to the church which helps those in my community who are in need. It helps build temples, send missionaries around the world and give humanitarian aid to those in need. I live my faith by committing myself to complete my family history and then seal my family together in the Holy Temple into an eternal family. I live my faith by sharing the Gospel with those around me at church, school and work. I try and do this both by word and deed by being a good example of a member of Christ's church and by exemplifying what we are asked to do. I live my faith by reading and earnestly praying to my Heavenly Father daily both with my husband and personally. I attend my church meetings and the temple and live worthily to participate in all the ordinances therein. But most of all, I live my faith by every day making the decision to pray for a missionary experience, to find another line in my family tree, and to help those who are praying for a miracle themselves. That is what living my faith is all about.
