Hi I'm Chandler Ryan Bradley

I was born in Metropolitan Salt Lake and was raised in the foothills of the Salt Lake Valley. I grew up as a skier. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm nineteen years old and have completed a year of college in the state of Virginia. I love to travel and have always grown up doing so. I'm looking forward to travelling around the world with my wife and family and completing my goal of visiting every continent on the earth - I'm currently at four! I like to surf, although I've grown up in Salt Lake City, where the nearest ocean is miles and miles away. Consequently, I've had to learn to surf when I've been able to visit California or Hawaii on family trips. Growing up in Utah also calls for one to become a skier - and I had done just that. Our family was constantly up in the mountains, skiing most every weekend in the winter months. I really enjoy history and english and have always had a knack for becomming aquainted with things that align with that sort of realm. I'm often the more relaxed type person, preffering sometimes to curl up with a good book or movie, or just plain sleep, but oftentimes I have surges of energy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, not only because I was born into this faith, but because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and have felt his love and sacrafice for myself. I firmly believe that if I were not initally a member of this church, I would cling to it instantly upon hearing of it. I know the pain of not knowing why I am here and how I can feel better about myself and the things I've done. The world can be very mundane and not provide you with supplication in terms of answering the larger, more spiritually aggravating questions, but this church has given my life a greater purpose and has helped me to become a better person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by surrounding myself with good friends and examples in order to help me maintain my strength. I have really found that by doing so, you can all be happy and have so much fun in the security of your collective values. I have been lucky enough, through trial and error, to find a best friend and other associates who hold me up and help me to enhance my dedication and growth spiritually as well as pertaining to general character. I enjoy all the callings that I've had to opporitunity to hold, among these being hometeacher, deacon and teachers quorum president, and soon to be missionary. My family has alwaays been strong members and have never ceased to strengthen my own personal testimony.
