Hi I'm Chase

I am from a family of 11. I grew up on a farm in Washington state and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Chase, having a verb for a first name made life interesting growing up, but because of those experiences I have learned more about myself. I love my friends and especially my family. I enjoy popping and crunching popcorn. I love playing music, singing and acting. I am easy to get along with and I love making new friends! I love animals, especially dogs and horses. My dream home is as close to nature as i can get, I love the outdoors and everything in it. I love to laugh, it's my favorite hobby, but I also like being a friend for those in need and understand that there are times when you need a shoulder to lean on. I try my best to be the friend I would like to have. I have learned from my mistakes in life and I struggle daily to change and become a better person. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been a huge blessing in my life, it has taught me that i am of worth and that all things are possible as long as I turn to Christ for help along the way. I know that I am a child of God, and that means a lot to me. I try to help others whenever I can however I can because I know that they are children of God as well. I come from a big family, I have 7 brothers and only one sister. I have tons of aunts and uncles and cousins. I also have several neices and nephiews that I love very much. I come from a small farming community, growing up on a farm has taught me a lot about many things, one thing especially is that I like to work with my hands and that I love being in Nautre.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ever since I was born, however I was still responsible to decide for myself what the LDS church ment to me. I am a Mormon today because of the things that I was taught while in my youth and also the things that I have picked up along the way. i use to feel that the Church's standards were hard to follow and in some cases unfair, but I've learned to understand the importance of these standards and how they can benifit me and my life if i abide by them. There are somethings in the world that a lot of people have problems with, such as smoking, drinking, swearing, moral standards, and premarital relationships; the standards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are developed in such a way as to help keep members and others from falling into these same problems. The "Word of Wisdom" teaches that smoking and drinking are bad for the body, as do doctors and other health leaders. The Church also believes that marriage in extremely important, and that marriage is to be between a man and a woman, and that sexual relations should be saved for after marriage with your spouse. These thigns allow me to have a firm foundation in life as well as giving me guidance and insight as to how i want to live my life, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. i try to be a good friend, brother, son, etc. I try to be the best perosn that i can be, by serving others and helping them in anyway that I can. I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois bringing joy to people through music and other forms of entertainment as well as bringing them the joys of the gospel of Jesus Christ into there lives. From 2012 to 2014 i will be serving another mission for the LDS church in the Nevada Reno Mission as a missionary sharing the gospel with those who searching for the gospel to influence their lives.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

If you or someone you know truely wants to know if Mormonism is true the best person that you can ask is your Heavenly Father, after all He is the source of all knowledge and truth. The best way to talk to God or to ask Him for help or guidance is through prayer. Prayer works just like any modern day communication system, all you have to do is use it or put effort into it. The way that we pray to our Heavenly Father is by addressing Himim (such as in a letter: Dear Heavenly Father, or Father in Heaven, etc) and addressing to Him our thanks and gratitude for our blessing or other things in our lives and also ask him for help or guidance in our lives (such as: Is Mormonism true? How can i know Mormonism is true? etc), then, as in a letter, we close or end our prayer, by saying "In the name of Jesus Christ, amen." In continuation to prayer, we must also study out in our minds and ponder in our hearts any questions we have about anything we may be learning. He will answer you through feelings in your heart giving to you by the Holy Ghost, who will whisper truth to your spirit and mind. After pondering and praying about what you are learning, the Lord asks that you act upon that which you have learned, after recieving an answer to your questions or thoughts you must take to heart God's teachings and use them activly in your daily lives in order to recieve a more full understanding of God's teachings.
