Why I am a Mormon

I read and studied to Book of Mormon from the time when I was eight years old. I listened to the teachers in Sunday School and Primary and remembered the Book of Mormon and Bible stories I was taught. I was a good reader and read those stories about Book of Mormon and the Bible Characters. Before my lessons I read through them before the year was out. I sang in church and felt the Lord's Spirit. When it was Fast Sunday came I gave my testimony of Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father and the restoration of the gospel through Joseph Smith the Prophet and the latter-day work

How I live my faith

I work with my family and try to create an friendly environment.
