Hi I'm Chad

I grew up in Salem Utah, I'm a farm boy, an athlete, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Chad, I live in a small town and am a high school student. I love to play sports, especially football, basketball and track. I play quarterback for my football team and am a sprinter on my track team. I live on a farm and enjoy raising cows and riding horses. I love to study history in school. I enjoy coaching youth sports programs and serving throughout my community. I enjoy serving in the gospel of Jesus Christ and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the knowledge that it gives me of where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. It gives me a purpose throughout my daily lifestyle and gives me an outline for the choices that are placed before me. Being a Mormon gives me comfort and peace about my life. My favorite principle of this found in the scriptures is in 2 Timothy Chapter 1 verse 7 in the New Testament of the Bible. It reads, "For God has not given the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of a sound mind." Being a Mormon gives me a knowledge that God does love me, that he is all powerful and he will help me and guide me in my life to be able to return back to him someday. It gives me knowledge that there is a possibility of returning to live with Heavenly Father again, through the atonement and love of the Savior Jesus Christ. Through his love and sacrifice we can be perfected through him and return to God someday. This knowledge is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking to serve others. In my community there are many people who are elderly and not as capable of providing basic needs for themselves. I enjoy serving these people by mowing their lawns, weeding and tilling their gardens, cleaning up their yards, pruning their trees and bushes, and up-keeping their houses. Recently in my church group, we organized a metal drive for an elderly man to pay part of his medical expenses from his recent stroke. We also used the money to re-roof his house and stop his roof from leaking. We didn't keep one cent for ourselves and it was the best feeling to be able to see the effect the money and service had on him.
