Hi I'm Chelsea

I’m a wife to a medical student and mama to two toddlers. I love to eat and share pregnancy tips. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’m a wife to a medical student and mama to two toddlers. I write a blog about pregnancy and the ups and downs of motherhood. I have a weakness for delicious food, and love anything pumpkin. I have no doubt that our Savior loves us and knows exactly how we’re feeling at all times, good and bad.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me, and each of his children. He knows us all by name and he knows our strengths and weaknesses. I believe that the Book of Mormon was written by prophets in the Americas, is another testament of the divinity of Jesus Christ, and that Joseph Smith translated it. I also believe that the Bible was written by prophets and contains commandments and teachings that can help us live righteously. I believe that we have prophets and apostles on the earth today. They tell us what our Heavenly Father wants us to know. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. I believe that Joseph Smith was also a prophet of God. He was visited by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and through them, he restored the true church on the earth. It is the same church that was organized when Christ was on the earth. I believe in eternal families. Through sacred Priesthood ordinances, we can receive blessings in the holy temples and we can be sealed to our spouses and our children for time and all eternity. I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, that He came down to earth and sacrificed his life for us. He atoned for the sins and pains and afflictions of every single person who has ever lived and ever will live on this earth. I believe that because of this, He knows exactly what we are going through at all times, and He knows exactly how to comfort us and lift us up. If we repent, we can be forgiven of all of our sins. I believe that the Priesthood is the power and authority God gives to man to act act in all things for the salvation of man. I believe in following the Word of Wisdom by abstaining from drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and coffee, and keeping myself healthy by eating right and taking care of my body. I believe my body is a gift from Heavenly Father and I want to show him that I am grateful for it. I believe in the importance of families, in the sanctity of marriage, and in staying sexually pure before marriage.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. I try my best to live the way our Savior taught. Our Heavenly Father gave us commandments so we can be happy, and I know that if we follow the commandments and serve those around us with the talents we've been given, we can find true happiness. In my ward I love getting the chance to serve in Primary. Teaching the little children about their Father in Heaven and brother Jesus Christ is something I look forward to every week. I also share faith-related posts on the website sheteachesfearlessly.com.
