Hi I'm Chase Simonsen

I currently live in Virginia, I am a senior in high school, I enjoy sports and being outside. I love my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 9 children. I love being in the sun and wouldn't mind if it was never cloudy. I enjoy reading and learning new things. I enjoy playing many sports and have played high school football and tennis. I will be going to BYU-Idaho after I return from my mission. I plan to transfer to the Provo campus and major in either Accounting or Business Administration. I was recently called to serve in the Utah Provo Mission and will be teaching in the Spanish language. I report to the Mexico Missionary Training Center on July 9th.

Why I am a Mormon

Gaining a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon has transformed my life in every aspect. My decision to regularly attend The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-Day Saints and the conversion that followed now affects every decision that I make. I have received joy and peace through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and I am grateful that I am able to draw nearer to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ as I read the Book of Mormon. I know that there truly is a prophet of God on the Earth today. I know that we all can receive peace from our sufferings as we decide to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and repent of our sins. I know that I am child of God and i hope to share this knowledge with many.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is the most important aspect of my life. I make it a priority to pray to my Heavenly Father and to read the scriptures each day. I attend early morning seminary (Scripture study) each day to gain a further understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I receive joy in participating in church meetings and activities. I assist the Bishop in organizing and teaching the young men of ages 16-18.
