Hi I'm Nancy Goldberg

I was raised Jewish and experienced a true miracle from God. God lives and Jesus Christ is the Messiah. I am Mormon.

About Me

I was a successful business woman. I worked long hours but felt unfulfilled and empty inside. I longed for the answers to these questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What happens after I die? I now know the answers now after I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Jewish and not only did not believe in Jesus Christ but I feared his name due to the persecution I received growing up. In 1992, at a place called Rainbow Bridge, Lake Powell, Utah, I experienced a true miracle of God. My mind was open to the truth and reality of God and that his son is Jesus Christ, the Messiah of the Jewish people. When this miracle occurred I was filled with the spirit of joy that words cannot describe. I felt a strong and powerful connection to God and his son Jesus Christ. I remember feeling one with Them and everything around me. It was as if our world was in perfect unison, and everything was in order, God was at the helm. I discovered miracles had not ceased nor should they ever. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was the same God whom I felt at that moment. The experience to me was sacred and wondrous. He reached out to me in love and awakened in me a suppressed memory of who He was. I was content to feel this connection to God. I knew that this connection had always been there but the knowledge of Him and His Beloved Son had been hidden from me. Now it was flowering and blooming and I wanted it to continue. Four years after this miracle I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This Church represents the gathering of Israel and is the restoration and fulfillment of my ancient Judaism. Jesus Christ is the son of God, the Messiah. He has come and will come again.

How I live my faith

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints seventeen years ago. I am now serving my eighth senior mission, seven with my husband. I will always be grateful for my knowledge about the Lord Jesus Christ, my Messiah. I help others with Family History and teach gospel doctrine.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Nancy Goldberg
After I experienced my miracle from God, I wanted to find out more about Jesus Christ. I felt there needed to be a link between my ancient Judaism and Jesus Christ. I found the answer in The Book of Mormon. This book was written "to Jew and Gentile" . . . by way of commandment, and also by the spirit of prophecy and of revelation . . . To come forth by the gift and power of God." I prayed about this Book and received my answer from God. It is true! Show more Show less
