Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being Catholic and attending catholic school through the Adoption Agency Catholic Community services and I am grateful them for their services as a child. later in my youth I turned to a more protestant and Evangelical up bringing, Billy Graham was a big part in me hearing the message of Jesus Christ, and later a book by Josh McDowell a leading Christian Apologist, called Evidence That Demands A Verdict played a big role in my spiritual development. I was moved by the concept of the book and its title, that yes, these matters of God DO demand a verdict from each of us individually. These matters are just that important. Thinking of things in terms of demanding a verdict, I thought that the story of Joseph Smith story and the first vision he had of God the father and His Son Jesus Christ was also a story that was so serious that it to demanded a personal Verdict. So I thought about it deeply and brought it to Jesus and told him what I was feeling, that I thought it was true and asked him to please guide me in this because I did not want to be wrong, but was relying fully upon him to lead me and if it was wrong to get me out of it and to wherever he wanted me to do. That was 19 years ago now, and I call that prayer I made when I first joined the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints my “insurance prayer” I wanted the assurance, that he will not lead me astray, and I knew I could trust that personal relationship I had with him at the time and he has. Christ has kept me in the safest harbors thought out life’s biggest storm’s. I am where he has lead me, I am where he is using me and my past experiences good and bad to help others and to serve as his hands in the lives of others, with empathy and love. If that is called being a Mormon, then that is me. Simply put, Christ first loved me and knocked many times, I turned to him and he has never let up on guiding me, and loving me, and I love him.

How I live my faith

Simply put, My faith effects every part of my life. From my relationship with my wife, and my kids. My work that I do, clients I take. Its effects all of my daily actions, if I will give it a place in my life each day. I go to church each Sunday out of faith, I support my church leaders out of faith, I go out with the missionaries and meet and talk to random people about my church out of faith in things I have no yet seen. The most important way I am learning to live my faith is in my own home, morning prayers with my wife, evenings prayers, and prayers with my kids. With my wife its not just prayers together, but counseling together and listening to her concerns and plans and getting our marriage on the same page on an ongoing basis, keeping us going in the same direction towards something neither one of us have seen, but something we have placed all of our hope in, Jesus Christ.
