Why I am a Mormon

I'm the first member of my parents family born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents and two older brothers were baptized a few years before I was born. I remember reading all The Book of Mormon the first time near the age of ten. As a companion volume and validating witness to the Holy Bible it is one of my most prized possessions. I not only read the BofM for myself but studied it, and prayed for confirmation from God that it is His word and that God called the Prophet Joseph Smith to translate The Book of Mormon for the benefit of the world today and restore Jesus Christ's Church. I know that God lives and knows me by name and sent his Son Jesus Christ to save me my family and all who will follow Him. Just as Christ ministered to the inhabitants of the old world as recorded in the Holy Bible he also ministered to the inhabitants of the Americas. The Book of Mormon is a translation of God's dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Joseph Smith a modern prophet translated The Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God and it is a fruit of the divine calling of Joseph Smith. The Book of Mormon teaches me and my family in clear, simple and powerful ways how to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ I know for myself this book is true and a key to my understanding that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth. I hope you will read and enjoy this witness of Jesus Christ - leading you to learn more of Him and His plan for you today. mormon.org/free-book-of-mormon I am a Mormom because I know Jesus Christ personally directs His Church through living prophets today - successors to Joseph Smith who hold authority and power to teach pure doctrine and provide and direct administration throughout the world of the required ordinances like Baptism and the Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost to enable me and my family to return home to heaven together forever.

How I live my faith

I love to serve and help in any way I am asked or I can find to uplift, inspire, and lighten the burdens of my family, church groups, friends, neighbors, and community. I love to share the faith, love, and hope my Heavenly Father has blessed me with. One favorite opportunity was to teach high school age students in a Bible study class covering both the Old and New Testaments for two years early in the morning before the school day began. I utilize the power of prayer not only to seek blessings but first to thank God. As a living Apostle of Jesus Christ declared recently "God the Father gave His Son, and Jesus Christ gave us the Atonement, the greatest of all gifts and all giving. Giving thanks in prayer can allow us to see the magnitude of these blessings and all of our other blessings." As a witness of Jesus Christ I always look for opportunities to share the Book of Mormon with those I meet. I often include a personalized message : As a friend I want to share with you this copy of The Book of Mormon for you to read, study, and pray for confirmation from God that it is His word. This sacred record witnesses of God’s Son Jesus Christ and was preserved for the world in our lifetime. As a companion volume and validating witness to the Holy Bible it is one of my most prized possessions. Just as Christ ministered to the inhabitants of the old world as recorded in the Holy Bible he also ministered to the inhabitants of the Americas. The Book of Mormon is a translation of God's dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Joseph Smith a modern prophet translated The Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God and is a fruit of the divine calling of Joseph Smith. I know for myself this book is true and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth.
