Hi I'm Chelsea Lawson

I am a Carpenter, a Dancer, a Baker I love to learn and I am a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in an rough environment, moved out at 17, and went to college. I went through a lot a trials but it has strengthened my faith and relationship with God. I am a dancer at heart, but I love to do many things like: build furniture, remodel homes, Lathe turning, ride horses, hike, bike ride, long board, play piano and guitar, water paint, and charcoal work to name a few. I am really a jack of all trades but the master of none. I love making cakes! I am a cake builder and decorator for birthdays, weddings, and special events. I honestly love my life and my religion I would not be who I am today without all the trials I went through. You have to prune a tree to see it bloom, and I went through a lot of pruning but, am so grateful. I am now serving a mission in Everett Washington and loving the people and experiences God has given me to work with. I have never been happier and I am so blessed with amazing Brothers and Sisters and Parents who are encouraging and supportive in all that I do.

Why I am a Mormon

At the beginning of my life I was unsure why being a member was necessary. As I studied in the Bible and the Book of Mormon I have found many answers to life wrenching questions. I have found comfort in prayer, and a perfect knowledge of the truth by asking my Heavenly Father which church was true and was I doing the right thing. My life without the proper authority of God (priesthood) would be ultimately the opposite of what it is now. I am a Mormon because God told me so.

How I live my faith

I have had several callings over the years and I have found that visiting teaching is ESSENTIAL! women and men a like need to know how much God cares for them and visiting teaching and Home teaching are truly brilliantly created just for that. I am now serving as a Full Time Missionary in Washington State Everett Mission. I have gained a strong desire to offer an opportunity for others to come closer to Christ by helping them receive the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, and by so doing I am become closer to Christ myself.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Imagine your body perfected no health: bone, mental, or physical issues. You learn perfectly teach perfectly hear and speak perfectly. This is God. Also think of your ability to move and to touch and feel and love, God has those too. God Loves us perfectly, God can also touch and feel things which means he has a physical body just like ours.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Chelsea Lawson
In Ezekiel 33 the Savior teaches us an important lesson. (I have numbered the watchmen #1 and #2 although they are the same watchmen, just to show the two different scenarios.) He said open quote, "take a man of their coasts, and set him for their a watchman(#1) ." (his job will be) "when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people" (and if they that hear choose not to listen) "Then... if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul." "But if the watchman(#2) see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned (so they did not know it was coming); if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand." end quote. We are all called as watchmen and we proselyte (or blow our horn) because it is our responsibility to make it known that the Savior (or the sword) is coming and we need to prepare to be ready for him. That being said people still have the ability to chose to listen just as the people in this Scripture. Show more Show less
