Why I am a Mormon
Almost three years ago while vacationing in San Diego I met a young man on an airplane ride who would later change my entire life. On the plane ride we talked for 2 1/2 hours about God and our purpose in life. I noticed that he had so much more to add on to everything I said and he just glowed. When he told me he was Mormon I had no idea what that was but I knew I wanted to learn more. At the end of the plane ride we exchanged contact information and the following week I began to meet with the Mormon Missionaries. I began reading The Book of Mormon, which brought a new light and understanding to my life. I knew that it was true. They taught me many things all of which have blessed my life and helped me grow. My life has been changed since that day on the plane. Two months after that plane ride, the young man I met, Daniel, baptized me into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. .
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
My knowledge and understanding of the Plan of Happiness have changed my life. Just a few years ago I had no idea what my purpose was or why I was here. I truly needed guidance and direction. When I began meeting with the misssionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and they told me that I was a daughter of God and that He wanted me to return to live with Him I was completely shocked. It was as if I were waiting for someone to tell me those exact words. I know now that this life is for me to do my best to follow my Savior Jesus Christ so that I can live with my Father in Heaven again. It was amazing to learn that He cares about everything we do and that He loves us. Knowing that someone cares and loves you has the ability to change everything about you. It has for me at least. I am so thankful for His plan which give us direction and comfort. I know that it is only by this plan that we can receive all the blessings our Father in Heaven has in store for us.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by simply trying my very best to live all the principles of the Gospel that we learn every Sunday at church and everyday from the scriptures. It's not always easy but the blessings of it are tremendous. I live my faith by always trying to be uplifting and an example to others around me. There are many different groups in the church based on age group and interest. I try to participate in speaking to the youth or in congregations when asked. I know that everyone comes from different walks of life and all of our testimonies are needed to help one another. After I was baptized I served a mission and was able to do service everyday and also help others learn about Jesus Christ and His true Gospel, or in other words His teachings. It was phenomenal. When you live what you believe others see it. I know because I saw it with my friend Daniel on the plane and hope to be the same example for others that he was and has been to me.
