Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church in June, 14 2009 I was introduced to the church in San Diego. I had just moved their after collage. I had no friends didn’t know where to go to meet people my age I remember calling my grandma she said there is a singles ward down the street from my house. I said what's a singles ward she explained it is a group of young single adults in a church. I said that sounds cool, I went the following Sunday. I walked up to the door and the sister missionaries said hi to me and asked if they could share a message with you about the church I said ok. I walked in and everyone was nice to me they all asked how I was doing were I was from. I remember thinking why is everyone so nice. What is it about this place? So after that awesome day in church I meet the sister's on Thursday. We had a good lesson however I didn’t want to join the church So I called them later and said I don’t want to waste your time. I’m not sure if this is something I want to do. Sister Hansen was on the phone she said. Ok call me if you change your mind. I did continue to go to church I liked the people. I was going for about a month now this guy said hey do you want to have a cook out. I was like sure it was six others and the sisters. After an awesome dinner the sisters were going around the room asking how the gospel changed their life. Everyone had very good stories but when they got around to me I didn’t know what to say. I said I'm never happy I fill I’m searching for something that’s not there. The sisters replied with a very sincere testimony. They said we know what you need to be happy we know how to fill that hole in your hart. They asked me will you follow the example and be Baptized I said ok I was Baptized a week later. It changed my life. And with many testomanys later. I wanted to serve a mission to give back. What the sisters and the lord sacrificed for me. 

How I live my faith

I life my faith by leading by example. When I joined the church I just didnt go to church. I lived it every day. I read the book of mormon and I prayed about every chapter ask if it is true. I was honest in my job and with the people around me. I came out a mission to show my faimy this is something Im willing to do do for the lord. I will show every one around me buy living the gosple. You will have peace and joy in this life.
