Hi I'm Cheyenne

I'm from Canada. I love art. I'm preparing for a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Canadian girl who loves art, cats, movies, music and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My dream is to become an animator and work at either Pixar, Dreamworks, or Disney but, I want to work at Pixar the most. I'm currently working two jobs trying to save up money to go on a Mission. I also really love cats of all kinds. Big cats, small cats, wild cats, any cats. My favourite two movies are Spirited Away and Big Hero 6. I listen to a wide variety of music but enjoy listening to film scores, dub step, 70's and 80's music as well as a variety of other things. My favourite band of all time is Coldplay. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is pretty awesome as well. I was born and raised in the Church and have read the Book of Mormon through fully one time. I am currently working on the second.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. My Dad was born into the Church as well but my Mom was a convert from Catholicism. I tried to attend Church every Sunday with my Mom and Dad. I didn't really understand everything about the Gospel when I was younger but when I was around 12, I entered into this program called Young Women's, and that's where I began building my testimony. I loved the lessons and tried to apply everything I learned into my life to try and live a more Christ-like life. I felt the Spirit in my heart and knew God was there. When I was 14 I began Seminary (sunday-school before academic schooling) and began to learn more and more and build my testimony more and more. Everything was great in my life and I was happy. Then my parents divorced when I was 16. I was so angry and hurt and felt like I had nowhere to turn and that there was no one who could understand my pain and lift it from me. I looked to Seminary and reading my scriptures for support and I found it, I felt God's love for me and was able to continue on in my life and not turn to drinking or drugs for relief from my misery. At age 17 I decided I wanted to go on a Mission and share the happiness and relief the Gospel had given me. At age 19 I decided that I wanted to know for sure if the Church was true and through numerous trials, doubts, and tribulations of all kinds I finally learned the Church is true, Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that he did translate the Book of Mormon and that it is true. I am still building my testimony everyday. The Gospel brought me and still brings me happiness and relief. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Visiting Teaching Supervisor in my Young Single Adult Ward. Basically I am responsible for informing the women in my district (a select grouping of women in my ward) who they should be visiting with for Visiting Teaching in that month and who their Companion should be (a companion is another woman who accompanies another woman for visiting teaching). The main goal of visiting teaching is for other women to interact with one another, support and help one another, get to know each other and to also share their experiences in the Gospel and teach one another about it. Friendship and service are a huge part of the Church. I am also responsible for encouraging the women in my district to complete their Visiting Teaching and to help in any way so that they may all get their Visiting Teaching done for that month. It is a very interesting calling and it has let me get to know the women in my ward a lot better than I did before.
