Hi I'm Chenoa

I am from a family of six. I grew up in Utah, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to high school in a small town, I love animals and taking care of them. I am a proud member of the LDS church. I'm currently serving a mission in St. Louis Missouri.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church. When I was younger I didn't like going to church. I realized when I wasn't following the gospel I was sad and felt empty. I when I decided to come back to the church the empty spot was filled and I was was happy again. When I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing I'm happy. When I'm doing things I shouldn't I may be happy for a little bit but the emptiness returns. I love the gospel I know it's true I know my Heavenly Father loves me and I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and he did see the Father and the Son. The Gospel mean everything to me and I'm so thankful that I have it in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an eighteen month mission in St. Louis Missouri, I get to share the gospel of Jesus Christ for that short period of time! My time serving the Lord is so short, But I am lucky enough to get to come out here and serve. I love my religion and I'm lucky enough that the Lord has blessed me with the health, strength, and finances to serve him to the fullest! I will continue to feel this way even after my mission for years to come.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Why it is important to take care of our bodies is because, We are made up of two parts. A physical body for when we're here on the earth and an immortal spirit. When we defile out physical body we are defiling our spirit as well. If we take care of our physical bodies we feel better and we can live longer. Also what ever we do to our physical body can effect our spirit. The reason why is because our spirit and our physical bodies are one. The reason why we call our bodies temples is because I heard it explained this way. There is a beautiful white building and there is a man painting a beautiful picture it's the most beautiful painting you've ever seen, but it doesn't belong there. For me that goes to show that sure its beautiful but it really doesn't belong on the residence of our eternal spirit. Show more Show less
