Hi I'm Chandler Halvorsen

I from Washington, I love life and my family (and India), and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I come from a family of six and one dog. I have three older brothers who are all great examples to me, and also my parents. My dog's name is LE because she has a slight lazy eye. I like to do anything as long as I'm with my family and/or friends. I like to make people happy because everybody needs to be happy. I play any sport, even though I am terrible at most. My most favorite thing to do is ride street bikes with my Dad, or really to do anything with my Dad. Also I have the best Mom in the world, so sorry other moms, you got beat.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and baptized when I was eight. Even though I went to church and tried to do what I was asked, I never really knew why I was a Mormon, it's just some thing that I did. But after a lot of prayer, scripture study, and learning from my experiences, I came to know that this church is true. The gospel of Jesus Christ restored in it's fullness blesses those who follow it, and it has blessed my life. Jesus Christ told on the Sermon on the Mount that by their fruits ye shall know them. I know this church is true, I have too much fruit I don't know what to do with, except share it.

How I live my faith

Before coming on a mission I thought that living your faith was to just go to church, read scriptures, and pray. But since I have been out, my perspective on that has changed. Now I live my faith by constantly trying to improve myself and those around me. I live my faith by following Christ instead of just talking about doing it. I live my faith by showing the Lord what I am capable of doing, and pray that he will make up for what I lack. The Lord will only help us after we show him the evidence that we are working in Faith.
