Hi I'm Chelsey

I'm a wife. I'm a nursing student. I'm a giggler. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Chelsey. I love to spend time with my husband. I danced for 15 years and loved every second of it. Now I am busy with nursing school. I hope to become a BSN and I want to work in labor and delivery. That might change, though. I love to spend time with my family. I also love laughing and making others smile.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents started to take me to church when I was five. I was baptized when I was eight. Into my teen years I really started to appreciate all that the church has to offer. I was better able to apply the teaching to my life. I gained more of an understand of what it means to be a Mormon. It means I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It means I have decided to live my life as Christ did. It means I do my best to follow His teachings and counsel. We are fortunate to have a modern day prophet who leads and guides us through these times. I am a Mormon because the gospel helps me make sense of my life and teaches me about where I am headed.

How I live my faith

My husband and I are assigned to teach the 9-year-olds Sunday School. We enjoy their sweet spirits and always learn just as much from them as we are teaching. We also regularly pray and read the scriptures together. This gives us an opportunity to grow and learn from each other's insights. It is important to us that we look for opportunities where we can serve and willingly offer our helping hand.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

A husband and wife are capable of being together forever. We believe in being married for time and eternity. Latter-day Saint couples must be married in the temple in order to receive the blessings of eternal life with each other and their family members. Show more Show less
