Hi I'm Dan Larkin

I grew up as a Mormon, but became converted by putting it to a spiritual test.

About Me

I was born into this wonderful church and into a family that practiced its belief's. I had parents who loved our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. They showed this by teaching all of their children the importance of living their teachings in all aspects of our lives. But just like every member I had to gain the testimony from God that it was true or correct. Just like everyone else it only came after I paid the price to know. That was to obey the commandments and to ask with a sincere heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it makes my life so easy. I gives me the road map that I need to have happiness during this life and in the after. I give me the answers I need to know where I came from, why am I here and were am I going. I want to be able to have the important answers and be able to have faith in the things I can't see.

How I live my faith

I believe my faith is developed by my actions. In order to be a true follower of Jesus Christ I must have my life demonstrate His teachings. I want others to see His teachings through my actions.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Dan Larkin
This is a good question. One of the most important parts of our believes is that each member gain their own testimony of the truthfulness of it. We don't want to rely on the strength of our parents, spouse or children. We want to know on our own. So how to we do this? It is very simple. We simply begin to read the Book of Mormon and each time we read it we humble knee on our knees and ask Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus Christ if what we are reading is true or from Him. Of course we have to ask in faith and patiently wait for the reply. If we do this with genuine faith He we answer our ernest desires. It might happen quickly or only after we have shown true faith. But it will come. It will come differently for each person. We have to wait for that feeling of warm or peace that can only come from a loving parent. He wants each of His children to know what they are doing is from Him. He wants all of His children to have a testimony founded on correct principles. The answer will only be as strong are our faith to recieve it. Show more Show less
