Hi I'm Chari Lundeen

I'm a student, daughter, sister, friend, and missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My story isn't unlike many others. I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Utah that I love. Iv been blessed with a wonderful family who support me in all I do. I'm a regular girl who loves to be with my friends and family. I love to play tennis and music and meet new people. Along with school, work, and other activities, life gets crazy. It's always good to know that something is always steady an sure. The gospel is a huge part of my life. And among all the loud and crazy things of this world, it's good to know that this one, simple girl from a small town is known individually by a Heavenly Father who loves her. I have been called to share this message to the people in the Washington Everett mission. These past few months as a missionary have been some of the hardest and most rewarding of my life. I have watched the light of this Gospel enter into peoples lives, change minds, soften hearts, and bring a peace that can only come through the message that I get to share every day. That our Savior lives. And because of Him, we can live again with our families for all of eternity. I'm am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a missionary, and no matter what life throws at me, I'm a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony of this church. It only got stronger when I got into high school and realized that it's not whether you are a member of this church or not, but how you show that you are a child of our heavenly father. I know so many people that have lost their way and its sad to think that they once knew the truth but for one reason or another gave it up. As children of our Heavenly Father, we need to stick together and lift each other up. We are all in this together and this amazing church is here to help us on our way. And it does just that. I'm so grateful for my family and friends who lift me when I'm down myself. I have been so blessed in my life and I hope I can help others see that even through trials, they are just as blessed. I know I'm where I'm meant to be. Now as I serve the Lord as a full time missionary in the Washington Everett mission, I have a front row seat to see how the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can touch lives and heal broken hearts and homes. I truly do stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers us all.

How I live my faith

Trying to live the gospel With so many crazy things in this world can get really hard. But with good friends, family, and leaders that all love you, we can all make it easier for each other. So that's been one of my new goals. To help those who are struggling, because we all know this world can be far from a peaceful haven. So through helping others through that, I can become stronger myself.
