Hi I'm Chelsie

I am a student studying to become an elementary school teacher. I love music! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently, I am a college student studying to become an elementary school teacher. I am the second oldest of seven children. I enjoy: singing, playing the piano, making arts and crafts, drawing, playing basketball, serving others, and socializing and interacting with friends and family. I love music! It has always been a big part of my life. I have performed at various events with my family in the past, and I enjoy blessing the lives of others through music. One of my favorite traditions involves dressing in caroling attire, going out into the cold, and singing to various friends in my home town. I also enjoy sitting at the piano in my spare time, and playing for fun. Along with music, I love laughing and smiling! Hugh Sidey said, "Carry laughter with you wherever you go." Many who know me are well aware that I am full of smiles and laughs literally wherever I go!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I know that it is Christ's Church on the earth today. Being a Mormon brings me so much happiness and joy! I have read the Book of Mormon and followed the counsel in Moroni 10:3-5, and I know that it's true. As I read from the Book of Mormon I feel peace and comfort. As I live my life in a manner that's in accordance to the teachings of Jesus Christ, I find peace, joy, and happiness! Being a Mormon has blessed my life in so many ways!

How I live my faith

There are many ways that I live my faith. One way that I live my faith is through service in my church. I am currently serving in my church by organizing activities on Monday evenings for some of the other students in my ward at college. This has been a wonderful opportunity to get to know other students and develop friendships with them. Additionally, each month I have the opportunity to visit two other girls in my ward. During this time, I am able to form friendships with these girls and reach out to them as Jesus Christ would. Christ taught in Matthew 25:40, "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." As I reach out to others in love and service, I am able to bless their lives. As stated by Helen Keller, “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” Even though I may only bless the lives of a few individuals that I come in contact with, I still have made a difference in each of their lives, and that is enough!
