Hi I'm Chad Southwick

I have a big family that I love. I am a missionary in Tempe, Arizona. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a fun outgoing family person that lives in Utah. My family means the world to me. I love to spend time with all of my family members. I enjoy playing and talking about sports. My favorite sports are football, basketball, and track & field. I also love music. I like to play the guitar and sing. Music is a great way for me to express how I feel. I love most types of music that are appropriate and have good, clean lyrics. All in all, I am an easy going person that loves to talk about anything!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family of mormons. I went to church at a young age. I'm not just a Mormon because of my family though. I learned for myself. Throughout my life my testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been strengthened through personal scripture study and personal prayer. I have read The Book of Mormon more than once. The feeling that I get when I read it is amazing. I have prayed about the truthfulness of the book and I know that it is true. I am a mormon and I am proud of it :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and partaking of the sacrament. I live it by reading my scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father. I do my best to keep the commandments that Heavenly Father has given to us. I know that if I do make a mistake in this life, that I can be forgiven through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that Heavenly Father sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to come to this world and die for mankind. I know that through his atoning sacrifice that all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel. I have been raised in the church by a great family, and I know that they help me stay strong in the gospel. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on the face of the earth. I have learned for myself. I am not a perfect person and I never will be; however, I know that if I try my best to keep the commandments I will be blessed. That is how I live my faith.
