Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Gospel and into a loving and strong Family. But thats not the only reason why i am a Mormon. I am a member of the Church because i have prayed about and studied the word of God. I firmly believe that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins so that we can have this experience on earth and be able to progress through life and live with our Heavenly Father. I have a special love for the prophet Joseph Smith, just thinking of all the trials he went through for the Lord and for the fullness of the Gospel to come back onto the earth makes me appreciate him as person and as chosen spirit of the Lord...he truly was an amazing man. There comes a time when you need to know for yourself that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. When i attended the Temple for the first time i was sitting in the waiting room. I had this thought and feeling overcome me that where i was and what i was doing was true. I knew that Jesus Christ truly died for me, I felt the enormous amount of love an eternal love He has for me. Then and their i received a true testimony of the Atonement. That i would do all I could to be Obedient to His will, because that is all i can do to show my love and appreciation for what he has done for me. I Love my Heavenly Father, my Brother and Saviour Jesus Christ and am thankful to have been blessed with such knowledge. I desire to share the knowledge and blessings i have received to others, so that their lives my also be richly blessed.

How I live my faith

I have attended church my whole life. There is nothing else i would rather do then live my Faith. Through the Young Womens program i was called as Beehive President, Maimaids President and Laurels President. These are roles that involve looking after the young women at church, serving and being a friend to them. I have also served as a Ward Missionary, Relief Society Secretary and Primary Secretary. Having the temple right next to our chapel is a Great Blessing! It helped as a Ward Missionary, because when they ask what the temple is or what it looks like i can just go for a walk or a short drive and show them. I try and live my Faith in every aspect of my life. At work, school, around friends and just in my dealings with everyone i come into contact with. Serving others is also a wonderful way i find uplifting to do and to help keep me on the right path. I have prepared to serve and received my call from the Lord to serve in the Utah East, Salt Lake City Mission for 18 months. Missionaries devote their time and energy to serving and teaching those who are searching for truth through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the Restoration of the Book of Mormon. I have a strong testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, written specifically for us in our day. I also know that we cannot progress without the Atoning sacrifice of our Saviour Jesus Christ. This knowledge has blessed me in many ways, and I'm excited to be able to bring those blessings to others.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Sarah Knight
The first thing I needed to do to know my Father in Heaven was have Faith and have a true desire to know and to receive an answer. I wanted to know if he was real and if there truly was a Father in Heaven, so what i did was the following; 1. I first prayed to Him and asked Him for guidance, love, peace, reassurance, and to actually have the faith to receive an answer. 2. I then read the Book of Mormon. I had previously read it but this time it was different. Because i had prayed for guidance, prayed for an understanding and had a specific question that needed answering I received my own witness that what i was reading was true. You can also read testimonies of special witnesses such as apostles and prophets in the Bible/New Testament/D&C and the Pearl of Great Price. They have had sacred experiences with the Lord and have recorded them especially for us. 3. And lastly Obey and Keep his Commandments. By doing so it will bring you closer to Heavenly Father and help you know Him personally. I know that as you do the above things your belief in God will grow, and as you act on your desire to believe in Him God will strengthen you, and your knowledge of him will become stronger and more sure.
