Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have studied the gospel, tested its principles in my life with faith, prayed to know it's truthfulness, and have not only seen the marvelous peace, joy, true love, and success it has brought to my life, but have also felt, deep within myself, the confirmation of the Holy Ghost that Heavenly Father loves me, that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, that the Book of Mormon is true, and that God speaks through living prophets today. I love this gospel. I know that it's true, that ALL of it is true, with every fiber of my being. To me, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not just a Sunday service-- it is the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Having faith in my Heavenly Father and the promptings of the Holy Ghost have never been so meaningful and so rewarding as when I was deciding to serve a mission. The summer before my last year of college, I felt like everything was working out in my life (school, internships, relationships and career opportunities ), and I was excited to spend my last year at school with my best friends. The prompting to serve a mission came suddenly one afternoon after a diligent home teacher asked me if I had ever considered serving. I felt like an arrow struck my heart and immediately went to the temple to pray. After praying at the temple several times a week for two weeks, my heart felt peaceful and I knew The Lord wanted me to serve a mission now. I quickly sent in my papers, received my call, and moved back home. Though I have been tempted to look back a few times and wonder what might have been if I had stuck to my original plan, I have never, never doubted that serving a mission was what God wanted me to do at this point in my life. Through this decision, I've been able to take out my endowments and be called as a temple ordinance worker in my hometown temple. I have become much closer to my family, the youth, and the elderly in my ward. My relationship with my Savior and my Heavenly Father has been forever altered, and my heart has been changed, softened, and seeks more after the blessings of eternity. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to prove and grow my faith, serve in the temple, prepare for and now serve a mission.
