Hi I'm Chelsea Buck

I work with struggling addicts and troubled youth. I love goldfish crackers. I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

I am currently a Senior PR Major and am hoping one day to plan events for big corporations across the United States. I love anything to do with the sun and have been an avid wakeboarder since I was 8. I am currently married to the love of my life who makes me laugh. Right now I work with struggling addicts and suicidal teens as a mentor. I crave goldfish crackers, spaghetti, and Diet Coke. I enjoy a good adventure and feel that every day should be filled with something spontaneous and fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed and have found it was true. I grew up in a strong LDS family. My father a leader in the church pushed us to go to church and to understand the principles associated with it. Although I could recite the doctrine and knew the stories I still relied on my parents faith to keep me going each Sunday. When I was around 16 years old I decided that I was done relying on my parents faith. Either I was going to believe or I was going to go another way. As a youth the women were able to go camping up in the mountains for a couple of days time. I decided that was the moment when I was going to find out if I had a testimony. I went by myself and as Joseph Smith did prayed to my father in heaven. It took me a few moments but as I sat there I had the overwhelming feeling that the Earth surrounding me was not just a coincidence but that He was there watching over me. I felt love that is indescribable wash over me. This is why I am a Mormon. To understand and to feel that love every day of my life. Not because of my parents but because I know this is the correct gospel.

How I live my faith

The best thing I feel about the LDS community is how each and every person is valued. Each member does their part in the ward by serving in different aspects. I love how each Sunday us as members of the church are the people that speak at the podium instead of it continually being a specific clergymen or preacher. Right now my spouse and I are serving to help the ward with their families history. We are able to others search deep into their families past to find loved ones that have past on. The women of the Church are amazing in the fact that they really are a society that works together to help those in need. I know that I have received countless acts of service from these sisters. That is what binds our church. The random acts of christ-like love it possesses
