Why I am a Mormon

i'm a Mormon because i was born into this church and i loved it when i was a little kid and as i got older i started hanging out with people from elementary school and they weren't active in the church and they started to change and as they changed i kind of started to change with them i became a less active person i never went to church i only went to the youth activity's when my neighbor talked me into it that same neighbor became and is now one of my very best friends she always asked me to come with her and i always tried to fight going with her until they got new leaders i already like the new leaders and felt comfortable with them and as i got to know the girls in the group better i realized that i was starting to want to go to see my friends and have fun with them and what i didn't realize was that i was learning things about the church that i didn't know they asked me questions about things i never realized i didn't know they encouraged me to pray and seek my own answers and i did and they came and they made me see what the church is not just what i was told it was and i gained my own testimony and love of this gospel and now i love and continue to keep growing and learning

How I live my faith

i live my faith by teaching the youth when i turned 18 they asked me to teach the 12-14 year old girls and then a few months later they asked me to teach 4-5 year old's with one of my friends and she left on a mission and i was asked to teach 5-6 year old's with that same friends mom i have loved every bit of my teaching experiences it has helped me to prepare to serve my mission because on a mission i will be teaching people every day all day and i have been learning effective ways to study and prepare a lesson
