Hi I'm Chelsie

I like to run but I LOVE to eat! I'm a girlfriend to my husband and a mommy to my 3 wonderful littles and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First, I am a wife and mother. I do my best to teach my children to become well-rounded and loving individuals. I am an organization freak. I love to organize my cupboards, closets, papers, you name it. I enjoy running and love to cook and eat!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as an inactive member of the church. I never knew what the gospel actually was. I didn't know about temples, or the ability my family would have to be together forever if we lived righteously. When I returned to the Church when I turned 18, I came to realize those blessings and committed myself to my Heavenly Father and decided that I would live my live in such a way that I can return to live with Him. I know that if I live faithfully, I can progress eternally and will truly be able to live with my Father in Heaven again, along with my family.

How I live my faith

I attempt to show love for those around me. I am a flawed person, and obviously I make mistakes. But when I catch myself doing something that isn't good (judging someone or losing my temper), I try to keep it in check and ask myself if that's something the Savior would have done. It's a struggle to always try to be a better person than you were the day before, but that is why we are all here!

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

It is taught in both the Bible and Book of Mormon that to return to God, we must be baptized. The Book of Mormon clarifies how and when a person ought to receive the ordinance of baptism. New members of the Church are baptized in order to covenant with Heavenly Father and show their willingness to follow our Savior, Jesus Christ. We become clean through baptism and our sins are forgiven. After baptism, we can remain clean by following Christ in all that we do and repenting when we do wrong. Show more Show less
