Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon, becuase I truly belive that this is the same gospel that Jesus Christ established when he was here on this earth establishing Gods church. I have came to a knowledge of that through studying of the Book of Mormon, and really simply just praying and asking God if it really is. I have seen much family peace come into my life as my family as learned to live the teachings of the gospel. Through the teachings of Christ we are able to come to know that God has made a promise, and that promise is that we as families will be able to live with eachother again, that the bands of death will not make families disintregrate but that we will be able to be and see our loved ones again. Truly the teachings are found in the Scriptures, found in the Book of Mormon, along with the Bible. We all as Humans have questions upon " Where did we come from?, Why are we here? and where we are going?" I testify that those questions may be answered through the scriptures. God loves all his children and has promised to declare his word to all, therefore that is why we are blessed to have another testimant of Jesus Christ, known as the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon, has truly blessed me in my own life, it has given me guidance to problems or everyday challenges we face in life. Constant prayer and study of the Book of Mormon will help you come closer to Jesus Christ ,for I have seen it in my own life. I am a Mormon, because simply I have asked if the Book of Mormon was true with constant reading of it, and have prayed with sincerity and faith that God will answer and he has. I am a Mormon because I have seen the many blessings that come from it and the unity it has brought into my own family. I encourage to read and ponder of the Book of Mormon and truly ask God if the book to be true. I know as you ask in Faith, and sincerity that God will answer through the power of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

Well Currently, How I show that this faith has helped me in my life is by serving a full-time mission. I am currently in Mcallen Texas. This opportuniy has been a blessing in my life and have seen very amazing blessing that have come from it. I live my faith, by inviting others to come unto Christ and enter into the waters of baptism to truly follow that example of Jesus Christ. I invite others to read and ponder the Book of Mormon, and ask God if the book is true, and he being a loving God will answer your questions to your heart. I invite others to learn more about the atonement of Jesus Christ, and the whole eternal plan of happiness that God has made for us so then we can come to know of the questions that we all encounter in our life.
