Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon (LDS) because I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. However I did not go every week and was not very active until one days I started going back to church. I later thought of serving a Full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I served a Mission in the Carribean. I love The Gospel. I know God Loves me and knows ME by name. I know that Jesus Christ Lives. I know He died for me. I know that The Atonement was for everyone. I Know He rose again and that He will come again. I have felt the infulence of the Holy Ghost in my life and teaching me of truth. I know that Joseph Smith was a 14 year old boy who prayed and asked God What church was true. I know that they appeared to Him and Later called him to be a Prophet just like Abraham, Noah, Moses, and many other past prophets. I know that God has Called Thomas S. Monson as the Prophet today. I am grateful that God has called a Prophet to guide us in these days. I know that the Gospel of Christ in this Church brings us peace. I am so happy to know that we have the blessings of Temples. So that Families can be together forever. Marriage is not just until death do we part but for all time and eternity. I know that as you pray and ask God if the Church of Jesus Christ is His church you will know, but you must ask with a sincere Heart!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by accepting a calling to serve. In church I serve others as a Home teacher, helping some families by helping them and serving them. I help others learn how to do Geneology and family history. I help others by inviting them to learn about Christ by introducing them to the missionaries or by being and example to them. I also help by teaching a sunday school class. I love to help in community projects in our community.
