Why I am a Mormon

My mother had many unanswered questions. I remember once when I was about 8 or 9yrs old, sitting on back porch, looking up at sky and wondering where I came from. My mom was influenced by example of people she worked with in Phoenix, Arizona who were able to answer her questions. I remember being taught by two lady Stake missionarys the Missionary discussions and knowing that what they were teaching was true from Heavenly Father's spirit letting me know. My Mom began reading the Book of Mormon and became excited, to finally know where the ancestors to Indians came from. She felt the spirit radiating from the Book of Mormon, gaining testimony that the Book of Mormon was scripture, words of the Prophets testifying of Jesus Christ, hes birth ,life, teachings, Resurrection. I'm grateful for the Missionarys who taught me the Gospel of Jesus Christ and know that it is true. I have felt many blessings come into my life, Peace and Happiness. I Feel closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. . I know we have a Living Prophet on the Earth, Pres. Monson.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each week, through church attendence, reading scriptures, following counsel of Living prophets and Apostles, being kind, considerate to others, keeping Heavenly Fathers commandments. I have had church callings, like visit teaching, which you visit other members of church each month, to see how they are doing. I have also enjoyed teaching children in Primary on Sunday. I have served Full-Time church mission-sharing Gospel with others..

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

There's a scripture in 1 Corinthians 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? -Paul the Apostle was speaking to early church members in New testament-Bible There are many people who did not have opportunity in this life to be taught gospel of Jesus Christ. In spirit World, after departing this life, they are given that opportunity. We perform Baptisms for the Dead by proxy. They have choice to accept or not accept that Baptism in their behalf.
