Hi I'm Chase Sayer
I'm proud american, an Eagle Scout, a music addict and I'm a Mormon.
My name is Chase Sayer. My father is in the United States Air Force, and as such I grew up as a military child. I was born at Hill AFB Utah, lived in England for 2 years shortly after my birth. I spent roughly 13 years of my live in various locations in California. I went to high school in Las Vegas while living at Nellis AFB. I am now currently serving a mission in Portland Oregon. My hobbies consist of sports (favorite being basketball), music, video games, and camping.
Why I am a Mormon
In my life my parents raised me with the correct and everlasting gospel principles, but that doesn't go to say that I always believed them or followed them. As I entered my teenager years I began to rebel. I didn't believe the "foolish beliefs" of my childhood. I lost faith in the church, gradually I even lost my faith in God and Jesus Christ. I began making "classic teenager mistakes". What I thought was fun turned to leave me alone with nowhere to turn. I was in a pit of bitterness when I decided to challenge God to see if he "really existed" I prayed asking if he was really there and if he really cared and if he would really help me, I got the impression to read my scriptures. I came across a scripture in the Book of Mormon In Ether 4:15. It was from that scripture that I realized I had crossed that "veil of unbelief" if spoke of and i was in fact in an awful state so I prayed to God again with that "broken heart and contrite spirit" and through that experience I gained a testimony of Jesus Christ. If the Book of Mormon wasn't true then god wouldn't have used it to help me gain a testimony of my savior. For God doesn't not use impure tools. My family and I took a challenge given by the prophet Gordan B. Hinckley to read the Book of Mormon as a family within a year, in turn he promised unseen tensions would dissipate and we would be closer and happier as a family. We took the challenge and saw the "fruit"Mathew Ch7 it was exactly what the prophet had promised. So in a nut shell I'm a Mormon because it brings me joy, and I've seen the joy in others as well. And we are all in that pursuit of greater happiness and peace are we not? I'm a Mormon because it helps me understand know and love my savior on a more personal level. Don't we all want that relationship? I'm a Mormon because of the doctrine of the plan of happiness god has for us. Isn't it great to know god has a specific plan for you that if followed will bring you everlasting happiness, i think so!
How I live my faith
I am currently serving a full time mission, In which I dedicate a full 2 years of my life to the lord to help serve his children in any and all ways possible. However I wont always be a full time missionary, and from that point I hope to live my faith by showing how much I love it and by doing my best to live the doctrine. By trying to emulate Christ's example to my best ability to be a friend someone can count on and a husband that my wife can rely on and a father my children can depend on.
