Hi I'm Chantel

I was born in Utah. I hope to become a writer of novels. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a English major, hoping to become a novelist. I love reading and writing, and I'm also a huge movie buff. I love movies! In the summer I love going boating and wake boarding with my family. I love being with my family and laughing with them about all the hilarious things we've done. I love to travel, and I've been to Argentina, Mexico, France, Switzerland, and Italy. I love listening to music, and my taste is extremely varied (but also extremely awesome).

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but that doesn't mean I didn't have the choice of choosing to live it for myself. It took a while (until I was 21) for me to finally come to realize that this church truly is the only true and living church on the Earth. When I was younger, I knew deep down that it was true, but it didn't really mean anything to me. Throughout my life, I've had amazing examples from my wonderful parents, who taught me principles of faith in Christ, hard work and high standards, as well as exceedingly good friends in college, who helped me become a better person, and a better member of the church. It wasn't until I received revelation from the Lord that I needed to serve an LDS mission to Argentina that it hit me hard that the Mormon church is true, and it hit me deep down in my heart. It is what I need and want. I need it to know my family can be together forever after death, that Jesus is the Christ, the actual Son of God, and that today on Earth, we have a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, who is Christ's servant to help us all find our way back to our Heavenly Father, who is anxiously awaiting our return to Him. I found out for myself that this church is true, because I've received a testimony by living its principles, and service helps me feel love for everyone, especially for those who are hard to love. Christ is perfect, and He has perfect love for each of us, and he died for us, we who are imperfect. We as Mormons are striving our hardest to become like Him. When Christ lived on the Earth, He served, He taught, He loved, He shared His gospel. Christ is merciful, caring, and desperately wants us to return home to him.And I know I want to return there to Him one day, along with all my family and friends. I know the Mormon church is true. I know we cannot live on this Earth without help from God, and He gives it to us through personal revelation, friends and family, and of course, a living Prophet to declare His words. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher for Sunday school in my ward. I teach young single adults, ages from 18 and up, and I'm also the activity coordinator in a group called Family Home evening, where an organized group of people get together to have a lesson about Christ and the gospel, and then we do fun a fun activity. I served an LDS mission to Argentina for a year and a half, where I had to learn Spanish and teach people from a very different culture about Jesus Christ and His plan for us here on Earth.
