Personal Stories

How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?

I absolutely love the Book of Mormon. As I read and ponder on it each day I receive new insights from God as to what I need to do that day and how I can lead a better, more Christ-like life. I am peaceful and happy as I read the Book of Mormon.

How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?

I know why I am here because of the Book of Mormon. As I read it my purpose becomes clear. I know what kind of life I should lead and what I need to do to prepare myself to one day meet God. I have a clear direction, even when things seem really bad. I know that God has a plan for us and we can know what that plan is to us personally through the Book of Mormon!

How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?

We can develop greater harmony in our homes as we love each other and follow the commandments. If we pray together each day as a family, read from the holy scriptures together each day as a family, and attend church together each week as a family our family lives will improve. We will want to serve each other more, forgive each other more easily, and spend more time together. Families are the most important group we will ever be associated with and Heavenly Father has given us the church and gospel to make our families more unified and happy!

Why do Mormons go on missions?

We go on missions because we love the Lord and want to share His restored gospel. The Gospel is something that has brought so much peace and joy into my life and I think that everyone deserves the opportunity to at least hear about it.

Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?

Prayer is huge in my life! When I kneel down and sincerely talk with God I know that He hears my pleadings and He wants to bless me and my family. I have a very comforting, peaceful feeling as I pray. My mind is at ease as I realize that God knows who I am and what I am going through and will help me. I have gained a personal relationship with our Father in Heaven through prayer.

Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?

I share the gospel with my friends because it makes me happy. Everyone deserves a chance to have the happiness I have because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary, teaching people about Jesus Christ. It makes me feel so amazing when I get to help a child of God gain a personal relationship with Him. I love helping people change their lives, to learn about the teachings of Jesus Christ. I love the look people have when they know that God is real and that He loves and knows who they are! I love going to church every week to feel the love and fellowship that is there. I love the people that I serve!
