Hi I'm Chanel Smith

I am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love the outdoors and my family and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a sister missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am serving in the Santa Rosa California mission. I grew up in a small town in Idaho with my wonderful family. I have three siblings, two older brothers and an older sister. I absolutely love my family! They are the most amazing people. I love to be outdoors, hiking, camping, you name it. And I did clogging all while I was growing up and I absolutely loved it. One of my most favorite things to do is to share the gospel with all those around me so that they may find the happiness that it brings.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, so i have been a member all my life. But i have a testimony that this gospel is true, and that it is the only true church on this earth. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the greatest blessing a person could have. It gives us guidance and direction through this life. And helps us become as the Savior Jesus Christ and to live as He did. So that one day we will make it back to him.

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a n LDS mission where I get to share this amazing gospel and my beliefs with all the people I can. To me there is no greater happiness than doing that. I love to see the joy that The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings to people life's. Before I came out on my mission is was a primary teacher in the church. I taught ten and eleven years olds the things pertaining to the gospel.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Chanel Smith
A testimony is a spiritual witness given to an individual by the Holy Ghost. The foundation of a Mormon’s testimony is the knowledge that Heavenly Father lives and loves us; that Jesus Christ lives, that He is the Son of God, and that He carried out the infinite Atonement; that Joseph Smith is a prophet, which God called to restore Jesus Christ’s church to the earth; that we are led today by a living prophet; and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Savior’s Church restored on the earth today.
