Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I originally became aware of the Gospel while living on the streets an alleys of a small city in Arizona. I worked at a theater, which was one of the few places that an under-aged citizen was allowed to work in those days. Most of the young people I worked with in those days also shared the kind of home life, or as in my case no home life, that allowed kids to work until 1:00 AM on week days. However one day a young woman named Susan came to work behind the glass. Behind the glass was the job of taking money and giving tickets to the customers. This was a job usually held held by an attractive young lady, of somewhat better dress and living standards, than those of us that dealt with the somewhat more gritty job of dealing with the unruly masses, that often chose to imbibe, partake of other restricted substances, then party, and often fight, inside the confines of that establishment, during those rough and tumble times. This young woman and her family, had an inner light and presence about them, that made them stand out, in the kind of crowd I usually hung with. As I studied this family, I recieved my first view of what a family, guided by the principles of the gospel could be. It was many years, and many sad experiances latter, that I finally got a firm hold on the gospel. But it was that amazing family, working to guide their lives by the principles of the gospel, given to us by our Savior Jesus Christ, that was my first view of the principles that lead to true joy.

How I live my faith

My life is now very full and busy, attempting to live the life of a follower of our Savior and his principles. Mostly this involves getting to know others, discovering the awesome and wonderful parts of thier lives, and sharing when I can, in their sorrows and needs. Life has taught me that none of us are perfect, but most of us strive to be better than we are, that we all have gifts and talents, and that sometimes the smallest sharing of those gifts and talents can be an overwhelming, sometimes even a life saving event, in anothers life. Many times my life has been touched and significanly changed, and my life even saved, by the kindness of others. But the greatest gift of them all, has been the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, what I think of as the universal rules for happiness. I try to share that same glow of happines that I first saw shining in a beautiful Latter Day Saint (Mormon) family, many years ago in my youth.
