Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church. Being taught by good parents about God and Jesus Christ. My parents are converts. My family isn't perfect. But, I've always believed that there is a God. That there is a Plan for us. A purpose for life. That without God death is the end. "..To be carnally-minded is death, and to be spiritually minded is life eternal." 2 Nephi 939 Above all, I've found true happiness in following the Teachings of the Savior Jesus Christ, who is central to all of this. Especially the Book of Mormon. But to believe all of this, one must truely ask himself. Is this all for real? Just because I was raised in the church, doesn't mean I know it's true. Or I believe it. So, yes there was a time where I had to find out for myself. At the darkest time of my life, about 14 years old, I felt like everything seemed hopeless. My parents didn't have much money for us. For food, for Rent. Anything. I wasn't doing too well at school. No one was getting along with each other at home. I was alone. I had nothing. One day I was cleaning up my room, and found a copy of the Book of Mormon laying around. I picked it up, and decided to read it. For no reason. I read from the very first page I flipped open to, and the first thing I read was this "..How is it that ye can attain unto Faith, save ye shall have HOPE? ..And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal.." Moroni 740,41 As I read, I felt something amazing, but more than that. It was as if that book was speaking to my soul! That book gave me greater hope for the furture. A hope that things will get better now and later. That the end will be glorious. Hope in Christ. Even more I asked God. He answered me with many other witnessess that the book is true. That it's of God. That the boy Joseph, did in reality see God the Father, and His Son. Because of this book, I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

One of the ways I live my Faith is simply by giving service to others. I start at home.Try to help my family by doing chors around house or simply helping my little brothers with school or anything. I even help out my neighbour with her garden. Just little kind, acts of service to help out others. Friends, love ones, co-workers, everyone. To show and share my love and Joy with them, as God has done for me. Jesus Christ always gave service to everyone. So I too do what He would do, if He were here. "..When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God." -Mosiah 217
