Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the projects all my life and i see a lot of things and growing up on the streets was rough. When i was in middle school i always get into fights and hanging with the wrong groups of people. As time went on i was getting in a lot of trouble in schools mostly was fighting a lot and i just remember i wasn't happy just being angry all the time and i some what was struggling and i made a lot of poor choices in my life during my high school years. One day i had a friend that lived next door to me and i only talk to him some time and that one day he invited me to the church. which was The church of Jesus Christ of Letters day-saints. I asked him what religion was he an he said LDS (Mormon), so i laugh at him, thinking he was joking around, but noticed he wasn't laughing so i knew hes being honest with me. The week later i went with him to the church and as i step in the building, i just had this feeling that i never felt before and so many people are just welcoming into the church and they was just to kind and i found it weird and didn't know how to responded back. The feeling i witness and felt in the church made me feel like this was something special so i ask the missionary to come over and they teach me everything about the restoration and the plan of salvation. The things they shared with me was"The doctrine of Jesus Christ" and "Heavenly Father plan ". As i continue listening and learning these things, i never felt Heavenly father love like that before. Then i got baptized and I'm greatful for everything what heavenly father bless my life with and never been happy. I am a Mormon! :)
