Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a writer. I love writing, and often express my feelings through it. I grew up without ever knowing any of my grandparents, but have been blessed with so many family members. I've seen the death of loved ones and hard trials in my family and friends. I'll be heading off to college in the fall, and going off into the world. I'm nervous to be on my own, but I know that through my faith I can be comforted.
I was have been born and raised in the church. When I was young, I lost someone very dear to me and could never understand why God would take them away from me. I was old enough to understand that God was able to make miracles happen, but the fact that he didn't grant me my miracle made me confused and angry. It wasn't until I was older that I came to terms with those feelings and asked him that ultimate never-ending question 'why?' And I received my answer, as I had never before received. It was as if everything I had ever known came flooding into my mind. I knew that, even though it wasn't what I had wanted, it was was needed to happen. I came to terms with my feelings and have since strived to live the gospel to its fullest.
There are so many blessings that have come to me through my faith in Jesus Christ. The most important blessing I think I have received is the knowledge that has come to me through faith. The knowledge of eternal families, and the knowledge that I am never alone; that Jesus Christ died for me and redeemed me of all my sins. This knowledge is the greatest blessing I could ever be given.
I'm only so young, but already I have experienced many things in my life. I have had the privilege of looking over young women and watching as they develop and grow in the gospel. I have also experienced these things with them such as school and friends. But in both instances, I have strived to keep the teachings of the gospel present in my everyday life. I love learning in school, and I love hanging out with my friends but I always remind myself of the standards and teachings I've been taught and apply them daily.
