Hi I'm Chelsea

I'm a traveler. I am a culinary graduate. I'm a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am Chelsea and I am 22 years old. I went to culinary school and plan to own my own bakery someday. I love singing and I have participated in competitions and voice lessons for many years. I love to travel and I have been to several different countries! I love to do outdoor activities such as camping, backpacking, hiking, and running. I also love yoga and practice it every chance I get. I am close with my family and love spending time with them. I also like meeting new people and making new friends. I am currently serving a mission in Pocatello Idaho! I know there are people who need my help and I'm excited to have a chance to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and I was always encouraged to make good decisions and to go to church. I always had a really strong knowledge of what was right and what was wrong. When I was younger I always went to church because I knew I should, not because I wanted to. As I got older I started to go through some harder things in my life and I had to rely on the Lord and prayer and the scriptures to get through them. I am so thankful for the chance that all of us have to make mistakes and learn from them and grow. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins and for that I am so grateful. I know that this is the true Church. It has the power to give all of us so much joy. I now have a strong testimony of the power of prayer. Without it we wouldn't be able to talk to our Heavenly Father and recieve His wonderful blessings. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves us. I know that families can be together forever. I know that this Gospel is true and I am so blessed to have it in my life. I choose to follow His Gospel becuase it is filled with love and because of it I know what I am doing here and where I'm going. I love my Heavenly Father and love the Church with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively trying to set a good example to those around me. Kindness is very important to me and I believe in including everyone. I am enjoy helping others and try to do so as often as I can. I was a visiting teaching coordinator in my ward which included calling the girls that were assigned to me to make sure everyone in our ward was getting visited and included in every activity. I was also an Especially for Youth camp counselor. I loved working with kids and helping their testimonies of the Gospel grow. I am so happy to be on a mission and to have the chance to help others' testimonies grow as well!

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement is what Jesus Christ did for us so that we can repent for the mistakes we make here on earth. Jesus suffered in the garden of Gethsemane for each and every one of our sins, causing Him to bleed from every pore. Later He was sacrificed on the cross for our sins so that we may live with Him again if we are willing to work at it and repent. Jesus Christ made it possible for us to make mistakes and learn from them. He not only suffered for our sins but also for our sorrows, pains, loneliness, and heartache. He is the only person that knows exactly how we feel when we are hurting. We need to always go to Him to repent.If we are always striving to live as He did and trying our best, we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever. Show more Show less
