Why I am a Mormon

Dad was an alcoholic, Growing up we had a hard time having the family get together. A great miracle and change was brought to my family when my Dad got back into the church and life got easier for our family to be together every night,we started having fun together, studying the scriptures together and praying together. I then realized the great change and hidden knowlege in me from attending church together with my family, learning from and searching the scriptures, diligently seeking through sincere prayer and finding out for myself that this is the most correct true church and the very best choice for me in which I knew I needed to be a part of, where I completely belong, I know it without a doubt.The Lord work in mysterious ways for the salvation of us his children.We just got to do our part...It's hard but it will worth it.Guote of Mine"Looking back to life,it's hard to describe,like a kite flying high in the sky,you can't even tell it's real size,but you can see how easy it goes,for where the wind blows,there will it flows."

How I live my faith

I am a convert to the church, and through it, I learned the great important questions of life, Where we are from? What is the purpose of this life? and Where we will go after we die? I always think about why Jesus Christ performed the atonement while partaking the sacrament every Sunday and it brings me peace and hope for a better life in the world to come which is eternal together with my family.I had lost a loved one and it gives me hard time to continue on with life,up to a point I have no hope anymore to keep moving on, negative thoughts came into my mind,commiting suicide was the only choice I have left but I am so greatful that the gospel came into my life that gives me the answer to help my trouble heart just to keep fighting and never give up.Important lesson I got to learn from the restored truth is that you can still get to be together with your loved ones again not only that but there is a way to achieved it.God test us in this life not with the temptation that we ourself can't be able to bear but that which we could.He gave me weakness so that I could humble myself and learn from my mistakes and as I did he make it strong unto me.I came to a conclusion in life that the harder the trials I face the stronger I and my testimony of this true gospel is ,and as I do exercise a portion of the FAITH that I have,miracles follow.
