Why I am a Mormon

I am 19 years old and have now been out at college for almost a year. I have done two semesters and I love it, and when I was younger I never thought about going to college. I was in and out of foster care and I missed a lot of school. But after the last time of going into foster care I finally had a family that took me in. I was nine years old then and that’s when I was introduced to the church. At first I was not able to have the lessons taught to me and I was not allowed to get baptized. My parents had to get permission first. So when they finally did. I started taking the lessons. And so did my older brother. We both got baptized. Ever since then I have been a member and I have been really happy. I would like to share my testimony that I know that this church is true. And that it can help you through hard times. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. That Heavenly Father really does love us and he is willing to help us. We just need to pray to him and ask and have faith. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen. I chose to become a member of this church because it makes me happy. And I believe and so does my mom and dad that Heavenly father has always been watching over me and he cares he help lead me into the family I am in today.

How I live my faith

I have participated in my church youth group for seven years. While being a part of my church youth I have been in charge of the girls 16-18 years old. I got to help plan our activities. During the time I was in that position I learned that it takes a lot to be in charge and to be a leader. During the time I was in this youth group I was challenged to do a number of projects and number of other things. By the end of my time in there I finished it and got a beautiful necklace. I now wear all the time and I love it. I am now in a singles ward out at college and I hold a calling in the relief society and I am part of the spiritual meeting committee that helps plan the spiritual activities we do in relief society
