Why I am a Mormon

My life up until becoming a member has been a jumbled up puzzle with missing pieces. I thought I had a clear perspective of the image the puzzle was making. Some of the edges of the puzzle pieces were however getting warn out because they didn't quite bond correctly to other pieces. With a tainted perspective and prideful attitude to have my pieces fit, I would use Elmer’s glue to place certain pieces in certain places that I knew were not meant to fit. It was through a suspicious series of seemingly random unfortunate events that led me to realize my puzzle was incomplete and skewed. The Book of Mormon, repentance, serving a full time mission, the exemplar Jesus Christ and his atonement, and the Church have been the missing pieces. My puzzle looks more complete now. That is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

Doing my best to be an example to others and by making myself available to go on visits with the local missionaries.
