Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, Because, I was born into the church. But just like Every Member, I had to find out if this church was True. In High School, I did a lot of things that I wasn't supposed to. And then one day, someone said something to me that hit really deep. They Said "If your going to go the rest of your life and be in this church, you have to First, read the Book of Mormon and Second, do as Moroni Directs(Moroni 10:3-5) and Kneel in Prayer and ask God if the Book is True!" and that hit me. I had been in the Church for years and never thought about reading the Book of Mormon cover to cover and then asking God if its true. I just always floated off what my parents said. It took me a little while to read through the whole book and when I got to that Last Chapter in Moroni, it Hit Me. I got on my knees and I prayed and I asked God the Eternal Father if the book is true. and then that Night I got my answer. I got a DEFINITE Yes Feeling inside my Heart and in my Mind, and Ive gotten many answers to Prayers since then. I know that I can trust in the Power of Prayer and I KNOW that God will answer me. That is Why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Every Morning, I get up, and for about 10 minutes a day and often during lunch or even before I get in bed, I sit down and I read the Scriptures, and I study them, I Love the plain and simple truths that are found inside these Books. I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON. And often, I use the Gospel Principles Manual or Preach My Gospel to help me understand certain things that I'm reading or studying. As a Missionary it was pretty easy to "Live the Faith" because I was constantly Immersed in the Scriptures and in talking to people about Jesus Christ. Also, I try to be an example to those around me, by providing service and showing people that I love them just by talking to them. Oh Yeah, and I'm Humble!
