Hi I'm Joe Chapman

I Love music. I enjoy helping people. I am a peacemaker. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 20 and serving my mission in Boise, Idaho. Some of my favorite hobbies include dirt biking, basketball, volleyball, football, playing guitar, building things, working on vehicles, building fires, and swimming! I love my family and my Father in heaven who blesses us every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I seek to follow Jesus Christ with full purpose of heart. And I have come to know for myself, through sincere prayer to our Heavenly Father, that this is his restored church on the earth today. I grew up with 2 alcoholic parents, no belief in god, and not much direction in life. At age 12, I lost my mother due to her addiction. Me and my Father moved to Arkansas when I was 13, and there we joined my grandparents in attending the LDS church. Over the course of a few years and countless miracles later, I one day realized I was really, truly, happy. The source of that happiness for me was learning I could be with my family forever. I found great peace knowing that life doesn't end at death. I've come to realize that God really loves us and has a plan for each of us. He wants us to be happy, He always wants to help us, and He never gives up on us. Since joining the church I have seen many great blessings in my life and I finally have direction and hope in my life. This church and this knowledge has changed my life forever. It's blessed me with the tools and the guidance I need to become a better friend, future father and husband, and a more steadfast disciple of Jesus Christ. For that I am so very grateful. And now as a missionary, I share this happiness every day with everyone I meet! That's why I'm a Mormon! :)

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission and I spend my days sharing the gospel with everyone I meet. I share experiences that have changed my life and show my faith by example. I strive to follow the example of our savior, Jesus Christ, every day. And every day I invite others to do the same.
