Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I was raised in a split house. My father was a life long member, my mother was not at the time but was not against it. I attended primary as every young kid does in church. There I learned about Heavenly Father, and his son Jesus Christ and their love for all of humanity. As a kid I remember not knowing why or what I felt, but it just felt right. That when I was at church I felt I was where I needed to be and that living the commandments in my life I feel happier. When I was 8 years old, I talked to my parents about being baptised. I was then Baptised a few months later. My mom, having taken lessions from the missionaires for many many years, finally said after watching me being baptised, that if my son wants to be part of this church, then I want to be a part of it too. She was then baptised the next year after me. It wasent untill much much later, infact in the past 2 years, that I really started to relized and understand what I had felt when I was a kid. I had felt and reconized the pure love of Christ in my life for the first time when I was so young. My life has had its ups and downs, as do all of ours. I am Mormon, because the Pure love of Christ, that guiding light in my life has givin me a path in life, a course through the ups and downs of life. The Church, the Book of Mormon, and the rest of the teachings have givin me a saftey and calm in my life when things are tuff as well as a guid when things are easy. I have a testimony that this is the only true Church of Jesus Christ on earth. That through Jesus Christ and his scarifice I have been forgivin of my sins. That thourgh the Holy Ghost, the Bible, and Book of Mormon I am able to be guided in life by Heavenly Fathers will and direction. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet on earth today, that he gives us modren revelation from our God Heavenly Father. I testifie that if you open your heart, and quiet your mind to the teachings of Chirst, you will be blessed in your lifes.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith, by my servise to others. There is not a person I will pass up to help if I am able to be of servise to them. I am planning on serving a full time 2 year mission for the church. This not only is missionaire work, but also servise to others in need of help in the commuinty that I am assigned to serve.
