Hi I'm Chanda

I converted when I was 19, I can trace all the greatest moments of my life back to the choice I made to be baptized. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother. I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughters and my friends. I love to cook and bake. I love to put my own twist on recipes. I love sports...anything to do with sports...I love sports, to watch, play and go! I enjoy DIY projects at home and in the yard, I know I think I can do more than I can, but I will try anything. As a family we like to do a little bit of everything, go to the library, ride bikes, scooter, play in the tent in the back yard, jump on the trampoline. Our home has a life and voice of its own, I love the noises of a full and happy home. We are in that transition from having young children to our youngest turning 9; I am getting used to the older children sounds. It is such a fun time watching my girls, all 3 of them! One of my daughters is really starting to like to help me cook, I enjoy that time! My husband and I enjoy a good "Tail Gate" at home. We love to make "Game Food" and watch our favorite sports and teams play football, baseball, hockey, the Olympics, it doesn't really matter what, we eat, cheer and enjoy the game. It is our favorite date night (or afternoon)!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was given the right to choose. I am proud to be Mormon. I am a Mormon because I have the constant guidance of the scriptures, Holy Ghost and teachings of our past and present Church leaders. It is so much easier to make each day's decisions (large and small) when you know you are not alone; of course I have my children, husband, his family and friends but knowing something larger with a bigger purpose is standing with me makes all the difference in the world. When I have been faced with some of my biggest decisions, challenges or heartaches, I turn to my Father in Heaven; just as I could never turn my back on one of my children, I know neither would He. Our Father in Heaven loves us so very much, a love that we cannnot fully understand right now, knowing we cannot understand in our mortal state his love and desires for us to continue progressing after our death, he gave us the Plan of Salvation.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith everyday in small ways. I align myself with things that are true, honest, just, chaste and benevolent. I ask respectfully for the right to make the choices that are best for myself and my family and promise I will give others that same right to choose. My faith is not important to me one day a week, it is important every minute of every day, it is a lifestyle and deliberate choice. I have been asked to serve in the Primary Presidency (our children's Sunday School Program) and get to see the sweet faces of all the children aged 3-11 every Sunday for 2 hours; I thought I was called to help teach the children, but I have learned in the last 7 months that I am the one learning. I pray daily on my own, with my husband and with our children. We read scriptures daily. One of my favorite activities is serving those I worship with. I am constantly amazed by the circumstances that present themselves giving me the opportunity to serve (those I go to Church with and those that are not members).
