Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have a strong testimony of this church. I grew up in a different religion, where I was very strong and participated in different activities, I never question if my religion was true or not until after I went to Provo, Utah to learn English, one of my friends from Mexico told me to go there because it was a good place to stay so I did. When I got there I realized that the whole state was Mormon, everybody was so good to me but I didn't want to change my religion, so I just focus in school and avoid to go to any Mormon activity and to fell in love so I didn't date. My family in Mexico were very aware about missionaries coming to visit me and about my new Mormon friends, but even with that they new I was very strong with my religion. My goal was to be there for one year and after that I was going back to Mexico. During my time there I went to my church every Sunday and have my catholic friends. Even I avoid every activity or missionaries, things started to change for me because must of the people around me were Mormons and I could see how they lived their lives, their families were close, they didn't drink, didn't smoke, the law of chastity was kept, all of them really follow God men and women and It was what I wanted but I had to change my religion and I knew I was not ready for that I wanted to have all that without changing what I believed. I knew they all follow God because they have a testimony of their church so I told God if I really can feel his spirit like everybody says and know that the Church is true I will baptized but if not I will go back to Mex. and be the stronger Catholic ever, so I told a friend that I want to have the missionaries and I think he was very happy for my decision, I had all the discussions and in every single one I felt something inside that made me cry, I knew that I have to pray to find out if the Church was true I did it and the answer was very strong It was a strong feeling that I wont never forget.

How I live my faith

I hope my faith in Jesus Christ is shown by my everyday actions to be a little kinder, a little more helpful, and to understand a little more of what each of those around me needs and wants. I have been Mormon for 17 years since I baptized I have served a mission for 1year and half and I have served in different callings at church, as a lider of single adults organizing activities for them. I have taught the gospel as a Sunday School teacher for Children, I have been part of the Relief society presidency, with this calling I was able to help those women in need. Actually I am working with Young Woman in my local congregation as it gives me the chance to teach and be taught by great young woman. We are able to teach the gospel, principles, service and help them with their needs. This is the Church of Jesus Christ and later day saints, we follow Him and his Church. I have received so many blessings by following his teachings. Espero que mi fe en Jesucristo se muestre en mis acciones diarias. siendo un poco mas amable, ayudando a otros y entendendo un poco mas sus necesidades. He sido mormona ya por 17 anos, y desde que me bautise he servido una mision por 1 ano y medio. servido differentes llamamientos, como Lider de adultos solteros dodne organie varias actividades para ellos, Ensene el evangelio a los nino como Maestra de escuela dominical, servi en la presidencia de Sociedad de Socorro, donde ayudamos a las mujeres con sus necesidades. Actualmente estoy trabajando on la mujeres jovenes, en my congregacion local, y me da la oportunidad de ensenar y ser ensenada por estas especiales jovencitas. Les enesenamos el evangelio, principios, servicio y les ayudamos con sus necesidades. Esta es la Iglesia de Jesuscristo de los santos de los ultimos dias, y le seguimos a El y a su Iglesia. He recibido muchas bendiciones al seguir sus ensenanzas.

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

By reading the scriptures we will know that God communicates with us, all of us in this earth are His children and he knows where each one of us are. He wants to guide us and to give us all the knowledge we need to go back to his presence and to find joy in this life. He knows we will have challenges, trials etc if we don't understand our purpose in this life we won't find the joy he wants us to have. He is the same before now and always he will always communicate with us, the bible testifies about Jesus Christ and it was written by prophets in the old continent but also they were more of his children in this continent America, the book of Mormon talks about that people and it is an other testament of Jesus Christ. By reading his scriptures we can get closer to Him and understand he care for us all the time, we can understand his plan for us, we can find, faith, peace, love, encouragement, we can become better people, be better with those ones around us, serve more and families can be closer.
