Why I am a Mormon

Nine years ago, my husband decided he wanted a divorce. I became the single mother to my, then, 18 month old daughter. I prayed to God and asked him to show me what happiness is so that I could teach it to my daughter. I became caught up in a tornado of opposing ideas about religion, and became Anti-Mormon. I spent months trying to "save" my loved ones from the church, which I believed to be headed by Satan. I began reading The Book of Mormon with the intent of proving it wrong. I never thought the people were bad, just terribly misled. I became so overwhelmed, I could relate to how Joseph Smith felt when he was looking for the true church. I would have daily anxiety attacks when I thought about religion. I prayed to God to tell me the church isn't true. During this time I began talking to several people who were LDS. They shared their testimonies, quotes & scriptures with me. One day, I decided to pray and ask God IF IT IS TRUE. I promised that if it is, I would live it for the rest of my life. The answer came slowly, starting with my first Priesthood blessing, during which I had a vision of the Savior and the Father. I attended church one day. It was very different from the Nondenom. church I was accustomed to. Very quiet and still, there was a feeling there I couldn't identify. On the way home I was asked, "What did you think?" To which my response was, "I don't know. But I know I'll never go back to my old church again." And I didn't. I was baptized several months later.

How I live my faith

The greatest commandment is to love one another. I believe we are here to serve our brothers and sisters and that we are all one family. I do my best to look for opportunities, big or small, to help out where I can. I accept and serve church callings. I work hard to raise my children to be service minded, compassionate people. I think that's the greatest thing I can do with my life, just love.
