Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the church when i was fourteen years old. It was the end of summer and my best friend and i were determined to have a sleep over but the only way i could get to her house was to go to church with her, that day changed my life. As we sat out on her swing set that night i asked her a question that had sat in my mind all day. "katelyn, why where all those people at your church so happy?" and her simple reply was "they are happy because they have the gospel in their lives" We stayed out on her swing set all night as she taught me the plan of salvation and i imediatly knew that what she was telling me was true. Within the next few days i had my first meeting with the missionaries and it was not long before we set a date for my baptism. My decision was not something that my family agreed with and the day before my baptism my parents changed their minds about what i was doing and refused to allow me to get baptised. Although i was upset that my baptism would not happen i didn't let it stop me and i continued meeting with the missionaries. For three years i attended church as the " dry mormon" and finally at the age of seventeen i got my parents approval and was baptised. Those three years where the hardest time of my life but i knew the truth and i knew that i wanted it more than anything. The gospel has influenced my life in so many ways and has been such a blessing to me. I can testify that i know the church is true and that the book of mormon is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that we have a prophet on the earth today. If you pray with a open heart and a desire to know if this gospel is true i can asure you that you will also recieve cofirmation.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be a good example to others around me.

What do Mormons believe about family?

For me my family is the most important thing to me. I love my family and i want to be with them forver and having the gospel in my life is a comfort because i know that this is possible. My main goal in life is to remain worthy to have a temple marriage and to be sealed together with my family forever Show more Show less
