Hi I'm Chenel

I was born in Washington, but have lived in Colorado most of my life. I'm a wife, mother and a small business owner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of 3 children. I went to school at Ricks College, where I met my husband. We were married in the San Diego LDS Temple and have lived in Colorado for most of our married lived. My family keeps me fairly busy, but when I'm not taking care of my husband and children, I own a small business that allows me to unleash my creative side and get paid at the same time, so it's a win-win! I love to build/create things. I have a passion for music and play a few different instruments. I also LOVE the theater in all of its forms.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Ever since I can remember, my parents tried to teach me the fundamental principles of the gospel. They taught me the importance of being honest, true, chaste, virtuous, kind and the importance of serving God and others. I have always felt a great connection to my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that I am a literal daughter of God and that he gave me this gospel so that I can understand my purpose on this earth. I have always felt His great love for me and that I can lean on Him for the guidance and support that I need in my life. I have a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith. That God still speaks to us today is of such great value to me! I have a testimony of the power of prayer in my life. On countless occasions, I have received answers to prayers as I've counseled with my Heavenly Father for guidance. I have felt blessings come into my life as I have tried to keep the commandments and live in a way that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

For me, living my faith means that I work every day to make myself better and improve my relationship with God and my Savior. I strive to live my faith every day, not just on Sundays! From a very young age, I was taught that when we serve others, we forget about ourselves. I strive to teach my children this same principle. If everyone were to focus more on others and less on themselves, the world would be a lot better place!
