Hi I'm Checotah

I grew up in Nevada with my six brothers. I attended BYU Idaho. I am serving a full-time mission in Virginia. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Utah but I have lived in Nevada my entire life. I have five brothers who I love so much and would do anything for. I am attending Brigham Young University in hopes of receiving a degree in Health Sciences.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that God is our loving Heavenly Father and he wants what is best for us so he gave his son Jesus Christ to teach us the gospel and give us a perfect example to follow. And then God allowed his son to suffer for our sins so we could repent and return to live with him someday and then he died on the cross and on the third day he rose from the dead and received a perfected body so that he could unlock the gates of death for us to follow. I believe that the gospel and the priesthood, which is the power to act in God's name was lost for a period of time but it was restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. He also translated the Book of Mormon which is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and I know that through that book we learn the fullness of the gospel so we can follow it so that one day we can return to live with Heavenly Father again. That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission to help bring more people to the knowledge of Jesus Christ's Atonement. I spend all day, every day sharing the gospel with others, doing service and learning more about Christ's sacrifice for me. I love it!! It is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done! It is amazing to watch others as they grow and progress and I get to see the Light of Christ grow brighter in their lives. I live my faith by not only helping those people but letting those people help me as well!
