Why I am a Mormon
well i grew up with my parents mormon so its just shorta in the family. but i did stray from the church in my teen years and i thought i didnt need the church in my life. well i soon found out the hard way that i did need this church and the support that comes from it. the blessings from bein in this church are amazin there is no other place to get them. ive lived life without the church and gospel but it was hard and not worth it. life is alot better with the help of the savior. i am a mormon because i know what im doin is what God wants me to be doin. this church is Gods church. i love it. im also a mormon because i know it will bless my futer family. im proud to be a mormon
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
well i have just recently lost a really good friend. i love him to death and i will forever miss him untill im with him again. but becase of the plan of happiness i know that i will see him again its not just a good thought or idea but i really know that i wil see those who i love and have passed away. ive lost close friends and family to death but i know that its just temporal. its so great knowin that ill see them again.
Can you think of a specific challenge in your family that Gospel Principles helped overcome?
the gosple has helped me over come addictions and it has also givin me the knowladge that i will be able to see the ones i love again. ive lost some close friends and family but i know that i will be with them when i go on. that gives me great strenth i think thats the biggest thing that keeps me goin is knowin that those i love who have passed are just simply waitin they aint really gone forever i will be with them again.
