Hi I'm Tatsu

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up in Japan. I'm physically disabled. I am a child of God.

About Me

I grew up in Japan, and I used to go to school for the disabled in Tokyo. I was born with the Gospel and a severe disability, called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. So, my life is totally extraordinary positively. I'm happy! It's beause I know the Gospel which makes me positive and strong. I love my family, my friends, and Heavenly Father. And I'm thankful for every blessings from God!

Why I am a Mormon

Actually, I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, athough some people call the members a mormon. My parents raised me with the Gospel, so I I've known about this church since I was born. I believe in God, Jesus Christ and the teachings. The Gospel gave me hope and made me realize that I am blessed and loved by Heavenly Father. Because of my disability, I came to know that Heavenly Father loves each one of us regardless of any races, disabilities or cultures. Three of my siblings and I are physically disabled and my family have had a lot of trials. However, the scriptures and our prayers have helped us to get over these trials. Heavenly Fathers listens and answers when we pray. I am happy with the Gospel and my disability. I hope many people who are hopeless by their problems or a disability like me will be happy and understand they are actually loved and blessed by Heavenly Father. 'Be not afraid, only believe.'

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday, and I like to talk about the purpose of this life. I also like to talk with others about the blessings from our Heavenly Father. I feel happy when I comfort those who are having a hard time by listening to them and sharing my experiences and testimony. I hope those who are having a hard time for some reasons will know how they are loved by Heavenly Father and hopeful for the Gospel. I pray to Heavenly Father all the time. He answers my prayers and comforts me whenever I pray. I also like to read the scriptures. I read the scriptures every day. It helpes me enhance and remember the purpose of this life.
