Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because I was looking for direction in my life. .before i was thinking when i die, where would i go?will my journey end as i die? then I thought, it doesn't make sense to live and just die. .those were my concerns even when i was young. .but I didn't really get an answer until i was at the end of my teenage life. .during that time i just lost my job as a bartender and i was still studying. .things weren't going so well for me by then and i didn't have much of a plan in my life. .then i met this friend of mine who was a member of the church and i was always wondering why would she carry a bible at school, so I asked her. .then I asked her to invite me to their church and she invited me on one of their activities. .then invited me to attend their church meetings on Sundays. .it was weird to me at first and i felt awkward. .maybe because i wasn't used to the way they treat people there. .it's like they all know each other. .i was then introduced to the missionaries. .lessons were taught, and i read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. .then i committed to a date for baptism. .a few days before i was baptized, i knelt down and prayed if it is right and what should i tell other people why I joined the church. .then the Lord answered me through the scriptures, specifically in the Book of Mormon. .and i felt it was right. .and as i continued to search the scriptures i gained a personal witness that the Church is true, that it has been restored to earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. .and the Book of Mormon, i know it is true. .

How I live my faith

I always attend church meetings on Sundays. .i love Sundays, its my favorite day of the week because i can come to church to worship God. .but i also show my love for our Heavenly Father and to Jesus Christ by always praying and reading the scriptures everyday. .i serve in the church as a young single adult representative and my job as a representative is to help strengthen the faith and relationships of other single adults in our ward. .i do this by organizing activities that helps us develop together spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially. .i also attend in the institute of religion to know more about the scriptures and it helps me build my faith. .and because i love our Savior Jesus Christ, i will be serving as a full-time missionary for the church. .
