Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert, I grew up in the Roman Catholic church until I was 13, by age 14 my whole family started attending Anglican church, I was very much involved in Youth groups, was a cross bearer, was a Counsellor at a Summer camp with the church at age 16. I met a friend who introduced me to the LDS church when I was 19. I was intrigued, mostly from his life style. he was a returned missionary and I was impressed, he was kind, pure, respectful, and most of all, he carried the light of Christ, this young man taught me about the latter day Saints, I later decided to call the missionaries on my own so they can teach me more... I was baptized in March of 1999, I have been a member of this church ever since, and I can sincerely say, the gospel has been a blessing in my life, I am a better person because of it. I am the only member of the church in my family, i know my family loves me and they see the difference the church has made in my life. I have a testimony of the gospel, I know this is the true church on this earth, it is complete. and what I love the most is that we are given our agency because the Lord would not want us to be force to follow his path, he wanted us to choose for ourselves to follow him. He loves us so much, everything he tells us is for our benefit. I am blessed because I keep the law of chastity and the Law of Titihng. I am strong & healthy because I keep the word of wisdom.

How I live my faith

I volunteer with other women in the church to prepare activities for nights of enrichment, i have had many callings through out my membership and I know I have grown, learned and have become a richer person because of it, I have received many blessings, not only in getting to know other members who share my belief but being part of this church I feel like I am at home, I feel the love, I feel the unity and the welcoming attitudes, the acceptance, the belonging. The church is a place where I feel the unity more so then anywhere I have ever been to or worked in. I know one thing, because we are learning and we come from difference backgrounds, I learned that we humans are not perfect, the church is perfect, and that we are here to improve, to learn, grow and one day become like our Heavenly Father.
