Hi I'm Chanley Harward

i'm a square enix gamer, but i love being outside too. Friends and family are everything to me. i love laughing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving in the arkansas little rock mission, its awesome. Being a missionary is the best! i am originally from utah, but the south is cool too :) My family and friends mean more to me than any of my earthly possessions. I love my savior jesus christ. Im a gamer, usually rpgs like kingdom hearts. I love books, they are better than t.v. and i like cool movies. I have one sister, she is awesome. I love my parents :) they are so amazing and have taught me so much. I love being outside too. I like hiking, camping, swimming, and just being with the people i love. Spending time with others is the only way time should be spent. everything is better when i am with my people. :) I love sharing the gospel of jesus christ with others, its my foundation, and it helps me through any trial. With christ, i am happy. I am definitely not perfect, and i am always striving to improve. This church is true!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i have questioned it. I grew up in the church, to loving parents that taught me the way, but i didnt gain my testimony until i was about 17. I had seen everyone else with a testimony of this church and it frustrated me, because i wanted people to know i believed, but i didnt know if i really even did. The answer came through a friend. I was having a really rough day, and a friend came up to me and shared a scripture with me. Alma 32:27. The seed was planted, All i had to do was make it grow. At that point I started really trying to gain my testimony. there was no more half heartedly attending church meetings and seminary. I read my scriptures like crazy, and prayed so much, and the answer came. not all at once, but piece by piece. I now know without a shadow of a doubt that gods kingdom is on the earth again, it was restored through the prophet joseph smith, and the book of mormon was translated by that prophet. The priesthood is restored to the earth and miracles are here again. I have been so blessed to be a missionary and see miracles take place in peoples lives and help them, through christ, to find the happiness that i have found. Families and friendships can be forever, we just have to do our part. I know no matter how lost we feel, or how far into darkness we may have fallen, that light of christ is always shining, even if its dull. Find it and feed it, it will be the greatest experience of your life, and eternity. Read the book of mormon sincerely, god will answer your prayers, and you will be happier than you have ever been. Live it and love it, It means everything. I say these things in the name of jesus christ, amen!

How I live my faith

I just returned from a mission in the Arkansas little Rock Mission. I strove daily to share the gospel with those who have yet to receive it. Rejection came often. It was not easy, but it was so worth it!I it went so fast, but i plan on continuing to share this message with all of my heart now that i am home. i want to participate in the ward wherever i am to the best of my ability, and to keep being a missionary. I want to assist the elders in any way i can. It will be different without a name tag, but I will try my hardest to help the kingdom spread forth. I also try to be patient with others, which is something i am not perfect at, and to be kind. We are all brothers and sisters, god is our heavenly father, and we need to treat each other as brothers and sisters. I try to read the scriptures daily, and to say my prayers. The savior is our ultimate example, i love him and try to serve him always. I am so thankful for the atonement, it helps us overcome our weaknesses and our trials and be better people. The church is true! :)

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will Share a beautiful message about the love of god. They will help you to understand where our church came from, what we believe, and how you can draw closer to your savior jesus christ. through reading the bible, the book of mormon, and attending church meetings, you will find that your relationship with your father in heaven is increasing, and you will be happy. Missionaries are courteous and kind and will not force anyone to do anything they do not want to do, they simply invite people to hear their message, because it has blessed them and made them happy, and they want that happiness for others that they meet.
