Hi I'm Chanelle

I love music. I love being happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love almost anything that has to do with music. I love things that challenge me, and help me know that I am stronger than I think I am. My family is very important to me, and I spend as much time as I possibly can with them. I love being around people, and helping others find their talents. I'm currently taking a break from college to serve a full time mission for the Lord. I am so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I had the opportunity to grow up in this amazing church. I am so grateful for wonderful parents that raised me in this incredible gospel. I know with all of my heart that this is the true church of Christ. I am happier than I would have ever been without it. I continue to go to church every week, and live the teachings of Christ because they bring me so much joy. I know that when I am doing the right thing, I am being blessed with joy and peace. I love this gospel, and I know that through it I am never alone. I always have Christ by my side. I know that Jesus Christ and God appeared to Joseph Smith. I know that through him they restored the true church of Christ to the earth. I know how powerful the priesthood is. I have seen this incredible power work time and time again. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have read it, and the spirit has testified to me that it is true. I love my savior and my Heavenly Father with all of my heart. I know that I am a daughter of God, and that he loves me so much. I know that he really does hear his children when they pray. He may not answer our prayers in the way we want him to answer, or the way we think he will, but he always answers them. He wants the best for us, and wants us to return to live with him again. I know the atonement is real. I know it is the only way we can return to our Heavenly Fathers presence. He will forgive us if we repent and will help change our hearts. I know this gospel is true. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I was called to be a Family Home Evening leader in my ward. This calling has been such a blessing in my life. This allows me to interact with many single adults, and be able to come up with creative and fun activities to help them interact with each other and make new friends. I am also a visiting teacher. I have the opportunity once a month to visit a few of the women from my ward and help them in any way that I can. This calling gives me a chance to serve, and make new friends.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Pray and talk to him. Follow his counsel and keep his commandments. Doing this will bring you closer to him. Show more Show less
