Hi I'm Chandler Simkins

I am 20 years old. I love sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I am 20 years old. I love to play sports, go hunting, fishing, and do anything that involves the outdoors. I also love to draw and sculpt things in ceramics, even though I'm not very good. When I get home from my mission I look forward to going to school. My goal is to be a kicker in college. I hope to play at least one game for the BYU cougars. I love being able to help people out and serve them. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the way it can bless all of our lives. But most of all right next to the Gospel of Jesus Christ I love my family. I love to spend time with them and just chill.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was raised a member of the church but that's not why I am a member. I too like everyone else had to read and pray about the Book of Mormon to really know if it is true or not. It took me a while to get my answers. I didn't get just one answer that let me know for sure. I had to really work at it and continue to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it all the time. Finally one night I really realized all the little and small answers that our Heavenly Father was giving me the whole time. I know that prayer really does work and that we can in fact talk to our Heavenly Father and receive answers from him, if we put forth our effort and really work at it. I know that this church is the one and only true church because God answers prayers, and I am very grateful for that.

How I live my faith

The way that I live my faith can vary I guess. It really depends on what I am doing. Obviously I do my best to strive to live like the Savior Jesus Christ and do as He would have me do. Whatever it is I am doing I always try to think of what the Savior would do and then I try to do it. I am not perfect but I definatley try to be by doing my best. I love to help people whenever I can. When you are serving others you can really feel the spirit of the Lord.
