Why I am a Mormon

When I was around 13 I prayed to know if the church is true and the holy spirit bore witness to me and ever sense then I have grown spiritually and seen evidences of my faith over the years. It has helped me know my savior Jesus Christ personally and helped me through some tough times in my life.
