Hi I'm Chase Webb

I grew up in Kaysville Utah, I am a future author, husband, and father. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old, and I am still finding my way in a world that doesn't seem to have a specific direction. I'm in somewhat of a void between what I want and what I need. I currently go to school at a technical college, where I am enrolled in a culinary arts course. I love it there, even though it's a lot of work. For the past two years I've had the amazing experience to work at an assistant living center, where I have gained new faith, and friends. I love the elderly, and working with them has been an amazing learning tool that I would never give up. It will be rough for me to leave them in a few months when I go off to college, but I happily accept the opportunity to meet new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints because I don't want to be without it again. I spent five years of my life living in spiritual darkness and misery. I was alone in the world, I didn't even think Christ was there for me. It wasn't until I participated in a youth Trek (a tribute to the pioneers that crossed the plains by walking miles upon miles in the desert, pushing a handcart the way they did, to simulate what they went through) that I had a life changing event. After a few days, and many miles, I was at a breaking point, as were a lot of other people, but we still had one more day to go, but I didn't know if I could make it. Little did I know that I was about to read a letter from my brother, who was away for a while in Europe. In the letter he gave me such personal advice and motivation that I couldn't help but cry. I cried for nearly an hour as all things good and bad in my life rushed in, and an overwhelming feeling of love from the Savior flowed into my heart. I was sad, but had such a feeling of reassurance that I couldn't help but also be happy. After I got home I spent a long time searching my soul for what I really wanted out of this life, and I came to the conclusion that I wanted happiness. I wanted to be happy-- really, truly happy. And that wasn't going to happen without Christ. That is why I am Mormon. To be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day to day, like most. I don't think there should ever be one moment, or day, where I plan to be spiritual. Every day is another day that I have the opportunity to listen and follow the promptings of my God. I live my faith openly, and look for opportunities to help others, finding ways to make life easier for someone else. I go to church and youth activities as often as I can, and I try to participate in them as much as I can. My faith isn't something that is ready to be used if needed. It is a part of me, and therefore, a secure part of my life.
