Why I am a Mormon

I was born with Mormon parents. Sadly they got separated and fell out of the church. I rarely go to the LDS church. Instead, I associated myself with other sects. It was fun. But none of them really left a mark. I grew up thinking that after death, there would be nothing, that everything would fall into oblivion. I remember tears falling down my cheeks when I first heard of it from someone very special to me. I believed her. I was 14 when I moved to my aunt's house. Her family is very active in the church. Although I don't want to go with them when they go to church, I just cant say no. It was then that I learned about the beautiful message of the Gospel. That everything I have feared since I was little was wrong. Families are forever. God loves me. I am special. I am His daughter. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that this church is the restored church of Jesus Christ and he stands at its head today. I am a Mormon because I know that God loves us and He continues to reveals prophecies through the living prophet. I am a Mormon because my soul is at peace I say this today. I am a Mormon and I am proud to be one.

How I live my faith

I have been active in the church since I was 14. Growing in the church helped me A LOT. Because of my active participation in the church, I have been blessed socially, emotionally, physically & spiritually. I have been called as a branch/ward chorister/musical director. It has helped me battle my fears against facing the public. It has inspired me to learn music as well. I learned the basics of reading notes and I participate in the choir. I love to sing alto although I'm more of a soprano. I was also give the opportunity to teach during Sunday School. It is a great responsibility and helps me understand the Gospel more. I participate in all activities such as sports fests, community service, and a lot more.
