Hi I'm Chase Spendlove

Born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. Preparing to serve, Pennsylvania Philadelphia mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Eighteen, and preparing to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS household. Being raised in the church wasn't always easy as I often had conflicting feelings about the church. My dad has had cancer for nine years, and this has always been my main struggle. I could never understand why God would put this burden on my family? But after years of prayer and study and trying to understand, I gave up and just tried to feel the spirit. And that was when I was truly converted. That was when I realized that this was all for the betterment of my family, my Father's illness is what turned me towards the gospel and towards the promises made to me in the scriptures. Life was never meant to be easy, we knew that from the beginning. But life was always meant to be worth it, and I have found that worth in this gospel. So I continue to strive to live the teachings of the scriptures and the teachings of the Lord's apostles. I often stumble and/or fall, but the Lord has provided a way for us all to regain our balance and begin walking the straight and narrow again. I love my religion, and I can never forsake it. Just as Christ will never forsake me. This is my testimony in His name, Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a ward missionary, and as an Ordinance Worker in the Las Vegas LDS Temple. My religion is a very serious part of my life.
