Hi I'm Chase

I am from Kaysville Utah, served a mission in the East coast of Canada, I am a triathlete, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old and am currently attending school to obtain my exercise science degree; I plan on being a physical therapist. I love to be active. I swim, bike and run! I compete in triathlons, and train for races whenever i can find the time. I love to spend time outside and see this beautiful earth! I am a brother to 4 older sisters and one brother, and I am an uncle to 10 wonderful nieces and nephews. I love to laugh, help others, and I love my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

This church is something that has changed my life for the better. I grew up living the standards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and was always blessed, happy, and excited to serve like my Savior would. I soon realized that my testimony of the truthfulness of this church had to be my own, and I was the one that needed to strengthen it. This was done primarily by prayer and obedience to God's commandments. Through prayer i was able to learn for myself that the church was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that there was a need for the priesthood keys to be restored to the earth; this was done through Joseph Smith. This means that the authority to perform saving ordinances to help us to return to to live with our Father in heaven is back on the earth! How wonderful! I know that the Lord revealed an ancient record from the Americas to be translated by the prophet Joseph Smith as another testament of Jesus Christ to partner with the New and Old Testaments to teach us about our Savior Jesus Christ; this record is known as the Book of Mormon. Through prayer i know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. Because i know this, I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet as he translated this record into English through the power of God. The keys are still on the earth today! With a living prophet of God named Thomas S. Monson. There are also Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ on the earth today. I know that this church is true as it is a church of continuing revelation. The Lord still guides us, and loves us today, and everyday! I know this church is true because when i keep the commandments i am blessed and can feel the spirit in my life. The Lord always gives me his promised blessings and more as i keep his commandments and follow the Savior's example of serving others. I love my Savior, and am so happy that He is always here for me! Because he suffered and died for me i can be happy and return to live with my Heavenly Father one day.

How I live my faith

I am a strong believer in actions speaking louder than words. I love to strive to be an instrument in the Lord's hands and help my brothers and sisters around me whenever I can; it is so refreshing to see others smile and know that you have made a difference in someone else's life. I attend church each Sunday, which consists of priesthood, Sunday school, and sacrament meeting which is the most important. I currently serve on the activities committee in my congregation helping to organize events to get people together more often. I attend institute, or religion classes during the week to enhance my testimony of my Savior and the Atonement.
