While our backgrounds and experiences are diverse, we share a deep commitment to Jesus Christ, to each other, and our neighbors. Watch these stories of faith in the everyday lives of Mormons. You can also meet Mormons here.
Our faith influences nearly every aspect of our lives. Beyond simply believing in Jesus Christ, we try to bring His teachings to life at home, at work and in our communities. Here are a few of the cultural priorities embraced by members of the Church around the world.
We are all spiritual children of a loving
Heavenly Father who sent us to this earth to learn and grow in a mortal state. As Mormons,
we are followers of Jesus Christ. We live our lives
to serve Him and teach of His eternal plan for each of us.
The Book of Mormon is a sacred record like the Bible. Christ's church existed in Ancient America as well as in Ancient Israel, and it generated hundreds of years' worth of its own miracles, revelations, and inspiring events. A prophet named Mormon abridged the records of the Ancient American church, and the resulting book was therefore called the Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon is an account written by the Nephites that lived in the American continent. The Nephites were named after the prophet Nephi who left Jerusalem in 600 B.C. with his family into the wilderness. By the hand of God they were guided to the land of America and established a new civilization. The book was named after one of the last prophets Mormon. His son finished writing in the book of mormon and some of his last words contained a promise. This promise entailed that ANYONE who would ask God with one simple question would receive an answer. This question is as follows: Is "the Book of Mormon," the word of God? Those who have embarked on this journey and diligently sought out an answer have found out the truth. I am one of those. As a student I really think and ponder about certain topics. I sometimes have a hard time with distinguishing between tradition and true desire. I sometimes wonder if my testimony is still built upon the testimony of my parent's however, I know that anything that encourages a person to come closer to God, must be from God. I don't believe that God tries to hide his line of communication from us but I think he wants it to be known. As a child of God I feel the influence of the Lord every time I read it and i know that anyone who reads it will feel the influence of the Lord.

The only way you can know Mormonism is true is to find out for yourself. You have to consistently and sincerely pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him if it's true. We are told this in the Bible in James 1:5-6 and in the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10:4-5. You also have to strive to learn all you can about Mormonism by reading the Book of Mormon consistently, attending church, and listening to the missionaries. You don't have to start off by doing all of this at once, but if you really want to know if this church is true then you will need to learn as much as you can. Study and give thoughtful consideration to all the things you learn from lessons and the scriptures. Another important element of knowing the truth is to listen with your heart; the Holy Ghost gives us inspiration and whispers the truth to us through feelings and thoughts. Along with this, it is important to follow God's commandments so you can feel the Holy Ghost; you cannot feel promptings unless you are living worthily of that influence. It can be hard to tell when the Holy Ghost is speaking to you at first, but if you just remember that the whisperings come as thoughts and feelings of peace, hope, comfort, and/or happiness then it will be easier to recognize. If you have felt any of these things as you have read this then you have already experienced the Holy Ghost telling you of the truth of these words.
