Hi I'm Chanelle

I'm a Kiwi, I'm serving a full-time mission in France, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from the beautiful land of New Zealand. I love the outdoors! I'm from a family off fish (we love the ocean), but also a proud Kiwi. I have a really soft spot for animals, but not such a soft spot for spiders. I love the arts (music, film, theater, painting, you name it), I'm fascinated with science, and I adore nature. I've been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life, and I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love it! Because of this gospel, I have been able to know for myself, who I am, where I came from, and have gained knowledge that I have the ability to be perfected, and become a better person through Atonement of Jesus Christ. The gospel has given me strength and helped me stay on the right path through my entire life. Like everyone, I have been through trials, but I know that Christ can lift our burdens, comfort us and help us push through life, and come closer to Him if we allow Him to help us. The gospel has provided me with peace, and a surety that God lives, and He loves each and every one of us unconditionally.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying a little harder every day to be a little better. I make the effort to read my scriptures and pray everyday, not just because I know I will learn and grow from it but because I know I will be blessed with strength and courage to be able to stand up for myself, to be strengthened spiritually, and in time come to know and become closer to my Saviour. The more we come to know our Saviour the closer we are to becoming like Him, if we let Him help us. I love to go to church every Sunday, and will soon be serving a full-time mission, one of the best decisions I have made!
