Hi I'm Chantal

I am a Mormon. I am a new widow since Feb of this year.

About Me

I am a new widow since Feb 20214. I have two special needs adult daughters( hard of hearing and legally blind). that live with me. I am French and Native American. I am the descendant granddaughter to Chief Tecumseh and Chief SItting Bull. I love animals. My neighbors has nicknamed my property here in the country as Noah's Ark.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was dating my late husband he gave me his dog tags (which I know wear) and the religion stated LDS. I asked my mother what that meant. She said, "Oh my God, he's Mormon. Latter Day Saint. I had never heard of that before. The next day I went to the library and read up about the religion. Thhe next night on the date I asked him how many wives he had. He laughed so hard then gave me an introduction about Mormons. We were married a few months later. When he took me to church, when I walked through the chapel doors I felt the Spirit so strong. Never felt that being Catholic. I fell in love with the Ward and LDS religion. I was baptized by his Uncle Will one month later. I have been a member since 1971. Never regretted it for one moment. It blends well with me being a Shaman. I was trained by my Native American Grandfather. Now on both sides everyone is gone, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts. I have a couple half sisters left and we are not close. I was devistated when Ben died. But I am a survivor. I have my daughters and animals, and my faith in Heavenly Father that I know takes care of me. If he called Ben home it was for a good reason. I can not imagine being anything other than a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am new to my ward. So I am trying to get to know the new members. They have been helping me around the 2 acres here. I had the Aerobic septic tank stop working, and then the hot water tank go. I am learning so much from this wonderful ward esp spiritually. Just wonderful members. I am truely blessed! For the next few months I am going to paint the outside of my house. I am painting the base color white , shutters red, trim navy blue with white stars. After it all is dry I am going to buy some glow in the dark paint and paint a sign of the cross on the front of the house.

What is being a Mormon like?

It is the greatest spiritual feeling you ever can imagine. It is like being wrapped in God's loving arms knowing he is always there and will protect you. I was converted from Catholic. I have had many spiritual visitations since I have joined. Many since my husbands passing Feb 2014. I can not imagine, nor do I ever want to leave God's church of The Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We were all born for a purpose. Through my membership in the LDS church I have learned what those purposes were. Show more Show less
