Hi I'm Chelsey

I love swimming and boating. I work from home. I'm a wife, a mother of 2 and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving water, whether swimming or spending a day on the lake boating. I've played a lot of softball and wish I could play more tennis! I met my husband on a blind date in college and we both graduated in finance. I'm a mom of 2 adorable kids. I work part-time from home. I am always looking for a crafty project to give something that's old new life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because of the happiness, peace and hope that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints brings me. This church gives me direction for where I'm from and where I'm going. I love Jesus Christ, my Savior, and I believe that by living His gospel, families can be together forever. I have received an unmistakable witness (feeling inside) that this church is part of God's plan and where I'm supposed to be.

How I live my faith

My most important role is being a mother. I strive each day to keep my focus on teaching my children by example how to live a Christ-like life. Our family attends church meetings every Sunday to worship and learn more about our Savior, Jesus Christ. I serve as the secretary for the women's organization in our church. I have served in our children's primary as well as in teaching the youth. I try to serve in our community in any way I can.

Are Mormons Christians?

100% yes! We believe that Jesus Christ is the most central figure in all of history and that He is the head of our Church. We pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. We study His life and His gospel. We aim to be like Him and follow his example. Show more Show less

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

We believe our temples are literally the House of the Lord and are sacred places for learning and worship. Individuals must be adequately prepared to qualify for a temple recommend that allows access inside the temple. Inside the temple, we learn more about the creation of our earth and other eternal truths. We receive ordinances that bind our families together for eternity. We perform these same ordinances for our ancestors that died without the opportunity to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
