Hi I'm Chase Gschwend

I grew up in Texas, I played football throughout high school, I am a mormon.

About Me

I live in Frisco, Texas and have worked in the aquatics portion of a fitness center for the past three and a half years. I've always enjoyed playing sports, but I also like to read books and watch movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been raised a Mormon, born and raised. But I don't continue going to church because of my parents. I don't continue to go to church because it's what I've always done since I was a child. I go because I truly know what I'm being taught is true. What I learn and what I feel at church and in the Temple are the reasons I am going to serve a full-time mission. I want everyone to feel that peace and comfort knowing there is a life after death, and knowing there is a reason for all the bad that happens. I know Joseph Smith restored the true church on the Earth today and that the Book of Mormon is the most true book on this Earth today and that without those I would not be where I am now.

How I live my faith

I have had the calling of teaching six year old kids in Primary for the past year and it has been the greatest calling and blessing that I've had yet. To be able to teach young children the core principles and beliefs of being a Latter-Day Saint is humbling. To know that it is essentially the same information being taught to converts and non-members throughout the world is astonishing.
