Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I just fallowed the path the " church" and my parents set for me. Not that that's a bad thing. I just never devoted myself to becoming converted, and learning the Gospel. Around the age 14 i started going through a hard time. I Distanced myself from my family and friends. I felt completely alone. I never told anyone about the feelings of Depression I had, or the thoughts of just ending it. I met a girl during this time. She made me want to turn my life around. After almost two years of pretending and misery, I decided I was done with being afraid of being alone, tired of the constant worry and pain. it wasn't until after I talked to my bishop that I felt the love god has for me. I learned at that time that I had never been truly alone. God had been watching over me the whole time. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I am forgiven of my sins. I know that God never left me, the only reason I Couldn't see him is because I was facing the wrong way. I am going on a mission to share this feeling of relief and happiness with any others who fell the same kind of loneliness that I felt during the dark times in my life. The girl who saved me still doesn't know that her small acts of kindness saved me. I know that through the Love of Jesus Christ others can find peace and happiness in their lives. I want to be the one who changes their life by showing to them the love that god has for them. I know that this church is the true church, I Know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called by God to bring forth his true church in this day and age. I know that God loves me, and I know that he Loves everyone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to repent. Everyday is a struggle for me. I try to live as an example of Jesus Christ by sharing my testimony with those I meet. I'm currently taking the next 2 Years of my life to help others come unto Christ.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Austin
A testimony is a collection of truths that each one of us know to be true. When we testify of something we state the things we know to be true because god has given us a witness by the power of the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
