Hi I'm Chelsea

I love the sun, smiling, and being happy! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the middle child of two amazing parents. I grew up mostly in Florida, but have lived in a lot of other places. I am in my early years of college. I am studying Art and Science, my two favorite subjects. I have been called to serve a mission. In my free time, I love to do gymnastics and to power tumble. I have been doing gymnastics for 15 years and power tumbling for 2 years. I love to cook, read, draw, take road trips with my family, and talk to people. I am an energetic person and love to laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It brings me great happiness and peace in my life. Being a member of this church has increased my knowledge, testimony, and love for Jesus Christ. When I was 8, I made the decision of being baptized and it was the best decision I have ever made. The gospel has brought happiness in my life because I know that Jesus Christ is our Redeemer, and our Savior. Jesus Christ gave His life for us, so we could live again and return to our Heavenly Father one day. Heavenly Father has a unique and special plan for each of us. It will require trials in this life, but He will only give us trials that He knows we can handle. Heavenly Father will push us to do our best. When we fall short at times, we can use the power of repentance to be forgiven and try again. He loves us with all His might. I know through the power of pray we can talk with Him and share our thoughts with Him. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith has restored His gospel to this Earth with the help of the Lord. I love this gospel. I know that this is the only true church of Jesus Christ on this Earth. I am a member because I know what this church teaches is true in every way. I follow His gospel because I have pondered the teachings of the Book of Mormon, prayed for the guidance to know if this is the true church. In time, I have felt and came to know that this is the true Church and gospel that is being taught today. I live it and I love it.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is important to me. I try to live and share my faith through my actions. The most important things are the small and simple things. By being kind and loving to all those around you will help others see the light of Christ in your daily life. To find the light of Christ you can do many things, such as, reading the Book of Mormon, going to church, praying sincerely, being considerate and kind to others, giving service, and so much more. I enjoy doing all these things. I like to smile and say 'hi' to those I walk by because it is the first step of making someone smile. The smallest actions that you give others will impact theirs in a huge way. Living my faith is a great opportunity for me to share the true gospel and I love doing just that.
