Hi I'm Chandler

I grew up in Houston, TX. I'm currently a university student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sport, anything and everything from ultimate frisbee to basketball to rugby (still learning the game) to soccer. I have always loved a good game that just makes you sweat! I also love music: I took piano lessons for 7 years and I was part of the marching band in high school. Music is the window to my soul. Currently I'm studying electrical engineering at university.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so I was "born into" the Church if you will. I have always believed in the values and doctrines of the Church, but there came a time when I wanted to really know if what I was believing and following was the right way. So I took the time to take what I call "the Book of Mormon Challenge". I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed to ask my Heavenly Father if the book really did come from him. As I prayed, I felt a warm feeling that I knew was the Holy Ghost teaching me that the book truly did come from God. As a result, I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's church here on the earth, and so I continue to follow its teachings as best as I can. Plus, I just feel happier when I do the things that God wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I just try to be good. I put aside time each day to read the scriptures (words from God) and ponder on ways that I can be a better person. I try to be a friend to everyone that I meet and to live by the golden rule (treat others how you want to be treated).

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

Missionaries will talk about Jesus Christ and how He has given us His Church. As you come to know that Jesus Christ's Church is on the earth again, the missionaries share with you the things that you can do to follow Jesus Christ and receive true happiness forever. Show more Show less
