Hi I'm Chantal

I grew up in Colorado. I am a certified Chef. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am very concerned with living a healthy lifestyle, but still being able to enjoy wonderful things like comfort food. My two favorite hobbies are exercising and cooking, because you can't fully enjoy one without the other! I graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts, so experimenting with and trying new foods is ideal to me. I love to be outside. Running, hiking, camping, biking, rock climbing... you name it, I'm there! I am a newly wed with no children yet, but I am very excited to experience the joy and trials of motherhood.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I chose to be one. I was raised in the Church, but did not have a solid foundation and testimony until I was 23 years old. I am strongly aware that after I realized the truth that my life became infinitely more happy and joyful. I still remember the moments in which I chose to return to being an active member of the LDS church. My spirit leaped for joy, and everything around me seemed to change. Members that I had known for years commented on the "light" in my eyes, and how much more happy I seemed. I am so very grateful for the power of the Holy Ghost, who, even when we aren't inviting it, prompts our thoughts and feelings to show love and commitment to our Savior and Heavenly Father. I did not need physical proof that the Church is true. I received undeniable proof from my Heavenly Father. The best decision of my life was to fully convert myself to the Lord, and eventually get married in the temple.

How I live my faith

I have served in several different callings at church, but am currently a teacher for 4-5 year old children. It is a delight to teach them simple gospel principles, especially when it becomes apparent that they are learning and remembering. Being around such a young group of people can be very humbling at times, like when their prayers contain phrases such as: "Thank thee for the beautiful flowers." Little children are so aware of their surroundings and ways that we are blessed that adults do not always consider. By teaching them I am learning to appreciate all of the small things.
