Hi I'm Conrad

My name is Conrad Lillywhite Im from Friendswood Texas and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been a member of the church my whole life but i was just recently converted to it. Though i always knew it was true, i never fully appreciated what the church taught or had to offer and i fell away from the church for a very extended period of time. During this time a hole grew inside me that i tried to fill with every sort of worldly vice imaginable. I never found true happiness as I thought I would during this time. Instead my life gradually got worse and worse, until, through an experience that can only be described as miraculous, I came to know the perfect love that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ truly have for me, and for each one of us. My life was saved, and changed forever. Through my experiences I have come to know that no matter what our trials may be, or how bad things may seem to get, if we put our faith in the Lord he will always stand beside us and nothing is impossible. I know with a perfect knowledge, that the Lord truly has a plan for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Because of the life changing experience i had when i hit rock bottom, when i was in the darkest abyss of my misery, just when i thought there was no hope, when i truly felt as if i was lost forever, i was touched by the spirit in a strong and profound way. I knew without a doubt in my mind, that although i had been on the wrong path, our Heavenly Father still loved me and had sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to atone for our sins so that we will be able to return to him one day. It was on this day that i learned the Lord truly does have a marvelous plan for each one of us and that through him we can find true happiness. I have read and prayed diligently about the Book of Mormon, I know that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called by God, and that we still receive revelation through Gods prophets today, and that, is why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reaching out to people who may be in the same place that i was just a few months ago, people who feel lost and hopeless or who are struggling with their own vices as i was. I seek to provide comfort to those in need of it and to share the love that the Lord has for each one of us by serving others, as others have served me and opened my eyes in the same way.
