Hi I'm Chase Hanson

I am from Shelley Idaho and I love Potatoes! I'm a missionary! I'm a sports fan, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am from a small town Shelley Idaho! I am currently serving a mission in Orlando Florida and loving every minute of it! I am the youngest in a family of 5 boys, but our family has now expanded! I have two sisters-in-law, two nephews, and one niece! They are wonderful! I grew up playing sports, particularly Football and Basketball. I am a BYU Cougars fanatic and I love the Minnesota Vikings! Naturally, being from Idaho I love Potatoes!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed with a deep heritage of members in my family! Although my family is all members of the Church, I know for myself that the doctrines taught in the church, are the true doctrines from our Heavenly Father. I know that he sent his son Jesus Christ to come to this earth to atone for our sins. I know that there is true power that comes from his Atonement. It allows us to be clean again, and to feel peace in our life. I also know of the strengthening power that comes from the Grace of Jesus Christ. He is the Savior of the world, but i know he has felt all of my pains and sorrows! I love him eternally for that! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way that our Heavenly Father has set up for us to all return to him again someday. I have seen the way that it has changed my life. I know he lives, and I know that he loves me, and know one can tell me otherwise. It brings so much joy and happiness to my life, and to the lives of all my family members. I have seen it in the lives of those who i have been privileged to teach on my mission. It will continue to bring joy and happiness to my life as am obedient to our Heavenly Fathers commandments and as i strive to live the Gospel!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I live! As i begin to understand more about the Gospel, I am able to change my life and see the ways that the Lord blesses me. I am currently serving a mission in Orlando Florida. I have the wonderful privilege of being able to help others change their lives and feel the Joy of the Gospel. There is no greater joy than seeing the gospel change peoples lives. The gospel has helped me understand who I am, and who I can become! Growing up in the church I was also able to serve in our youth groups, and between the two i have been able to experience a little piece of our Heavenly Fathers love for all of his children!
