Hi I'm Chloe

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I love to play soccer, badminton, and lacrosse. I have been called as a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the fifth child out of six in my family, and my little brother is my best friend. I recently finished my first year of college where I had the opportunity to play on the women's soccer and lacrosse teams. I also had the pleasure of experiencing my first snow storm! (Being from Arizona, we don't see much snow) My college experience had many ups and downs and I struggled a lot. But it was through the love of my Heavenly Father, that I made it through; stronger than I was before. These tough experiences that I gained a full understanding of why I am here on this earth, and right now, that entails serving an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into this wonderful gospel and even luckier to be part of a family that loves to live the commandments of God. But that is not the reason why I am a member of this church. I have chosen to follow this gospel because it makes me extremely happy and it is a source of hope. I rarely have doubt, I do not fear life, and I have a completely understanding of who I am, where I came from, and what my purpose is. I know that I am a literal daughter of a heavenly being, and I have faith that I these parents in heaven love me without end. I would not be who I am today if I didn't have the continual blessings of the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

Growing up, I was part of a very small youth program. So small in fact, that I had the chance to serve as the beehive, mia maid, and laurel president. Although, at times, it was hard being only one of four young women in my ward, I had the chance to be a very active participant in planning mutual activities and other events. I was able to put these skills to use when I was called as the Relief Society second counselor and an FHE coordinator in my student ward at college.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important event in history. His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross allowed Christ to atone for our sins. These actions make it possible for every single person to become like him someday; perfect. The Atonement does not only has the power to take away our sins, but any unwanted feelings that we may have, because Christ suffered for any pain, sickness, or sadness we have ever felt or will ever feel. It was necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life, because without him we could not return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever. It is through Christ and by Christ that we are able to achieve happiness. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have received a modern revelation from our prophets called, The Family; A Proclamation to the World. In this document, our beliefs in the family system are laid out. Fathers are presumed to hold the responsibility to watch over and teach their families in love and righteousness. They are also to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. While mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these responsibilities, fathers and mothers are to work together as equal partners. Men and women are seen as complete equals. Although our responsibilities in the church are different, each individual holds a power that comes from God. The men hold the power of the priesthood while the women hold the sacred power of being able to bring children into this world. Show more Show less
