Why I am a Mormon

John - I have been a member of the LDS Church all of my life. My true conversion came as I served as a missionary. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God to a Branch of the House of Israel living in America. They were visited by Jesus Christ after his resurrection. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is led by a Prophet today. His name is Thomas S. Monson. Susan - I, too, have been a member of the LDS Church all of my life. I have always been active in teaching, music, and leadership in the Church. As an adult I have realized my testimony has grown and matured as I have become older. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true Church on the earth today. I have seen many miracles performed in my life. My children are also all active in the Church.
