Hi I'm Chea

I'm a Mormon. I'm a photographer. I am passionate about light, the kind of light so beautiful you know its a gift from God.

About Me

I am a photographer. I love beautiful light and color. One of my favorite times of day is when the sun streams through a stand of trees and wraps its beauty around you and the surroundings making everything look better. I often feel Gods love when I see the beauty of his Creations. I love good design. Whether it be awesome architecture or a well decorated room. I love the beach and all that comes with it. I love gourmet food. Yes I cook with real butter. I have a dry wit and appreciate a hint of sarcasm. As passionate as I am about my work I am even more passionate about my husband of 20 years and our beautiful family. He has given me 4 amazing daughters. My family is my true passion. I love the times we are all together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace it brings me. Because of my faith I know who I am and where I am going. I am a child of God. I am trying to live more like my Savior and return to live with him. With that knowledge I try to live my life so I can be in harmony with Jesus Christs teachings. It makes daily and life decisions so much easier. As with anything if you know the plan, you know what direction to go in. Isnt that half the battle? With this knowledge of being a child of God I know that I can rely on him to guide me in my daily affairs and desires. When things get difficult,(in real life they do) I try to remember one of my favorite scriptures in the Book of Mormon, Ether 12:27 "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." I am weak in many things. This gives me the faith and strength I need to keep trying when I fail. Each time I get up knowing I am stronger because he is with me making my weakness my strength.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying daily. This gives me strength and helps me remember to have gratitude for all that I am blessed with. Sundays we attend church. I love the sacrament meeting. It helps me remember the Savior and all that he has done for me and you. When I take the sacrament recommit every Sunday to do better than the week before. I make mistakes all week long and it is a time to do inventory and remember what the lord expects of me and do better. I repent and commit to better. Change a little at a time. In our ward I teach the 12 year old girls on Sunday and participate in activities with them on Tuesdays evenings. More often than not the lessons I teach , teach me. With the study I do to prepare it often brings me insight into my parenting and more importantly how I can improve myself. I love working with the young girls. I love to see their enthusiasm for life and all the possibilities. I love to nurture them and teach them what I know. They too are a daughter of God. Divine Royalty
