Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it has saved me from numerous bad decisions, and it has taught me how to put others above of my needs. Being a Mormon has saved me from death on numerous occasions. The Most important reason why I stay a Mormon is knowing that my family will remain with me forever and eternity The experiences, that me and my family have in this life will stay with us forever. The family is the fundamental unit in society and the backbone of our nation. I also know Jesus is our savior and every pain, every sorrow, every hurt and every error we make can be forgiven. Jesus gave his life for all of us all we have to do is keep his commandments and follow his example. Being Mormon it is my way of life it is moral compass it is my pathway to God. Any scenario, any question and any decision we make in this life has an answer and it is restored. There is no question that can not be answered by God and his church. The fulness of Gods words are on earth again. We have living prophets living teachers and living messengers of God do exist. I know who I am, I know my potential. I know what I can be come. I know the purpose of life. We are creations of our father in heaven. We are his children. We are members of Gods KIngdom, We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gods, the only and true and living church on the face of the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying to god daily, reading his scriptures, giving of my time and service to my brothers and sisters in the church.

I have harvested peanuts and taught people how to be self reliable. I have taught youth how to stay strong in their morals and values and have taught them how to be great individuals.
