Hi I'm Sophie

I'm a student. I'm a writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love sharing this message!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but I am a Mormon by choice. By obeying the principles that I've learned about since childhood, I have come to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. It wasn't something that I've always known. I questioned the gospel and spent a long time wondering if it was true, but I kept doing the things that the church taught were right because I wanted to believe. I wanted the church to be true because I loved it. Then little by little, I received a powerful testimony of it's truthfulness. It didn't come all at once, and I had to have patience. But it did come, and I know that I am very blessed to have been born in a home where I was able to learn about the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and partaking of the Sacrament. I have taught a class of the women in my college ward and felt the Spirit of the Lord guiding me to be able to say the things the women needed to learn. I have fulfilled my calling to visit certain women that have been assigned for me to visit. I have felt the Lord's presence in my life become more prominent each time I do this. I go to the temple to perform ordinances for the dead. I feel the peace of being in the Lord's house in the temple. I feel the love God has for me, and the Spirit testifies to me that families are forever. I read my scriptures and pray. This has lead me to an understanding of the world around me that I could not receive anywhere else. When I am living my faith, I feel love toward those around me and love for myself. I feel like life is clearer and better.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Sophie
The scripture help me to feel peace. I feel better when I read them, and my life feels like it is in order. I can receive so much light just from reading and studying the words of God. I feel like it is the most important part of my day. It is the one sure thing that I know will help me have a good day. Show more Show less
