Why I am a Mormon

I have come to gain a testimony though acting upon my faith. I have gained it by trying and proving the Gospel in my own life. I have found a deep inner peace that has come through following the principles of the Gospel, a joy and a happiness which has strengthened and solidifies my faith. I know that Jesus Christ does indeed live. That he was indeed resurrected on the third day and preformed the atonement that we, the spirit sons and daughters of God, might be able to return to our father in heaven again. I know that this life is a testing period that through our faithfulness and the Savior's atonement we will obtain eternal life and exaltation. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and did indeed restore the Gospel that existed at the time of the Lords ministery and through out all dispensations. I know that the Book of Mormon is indeed the testimony and history of individuals that the Lord guided to this promised land. I know that if we follow the precepts found within its pages that we will come closer to God. I know that the priesthood is upon the earth in full and that the prophet Thomas S. Monson holds all the keys to this priesthood. I know that he guides the affairs of the church and truly is the mouthpiece of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know that the Gospel is true and is only found fully in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that the temple is the house of the Lord. I know that we find inspiration and revelation within those walls. I know that if you pray and ask fervently that the Lord will answer your prayers. I know that if you ask you shall receive and if you knock it shall be opened unto you. It is this testimony which gives me a guide, a peace and a joy in my life. I write these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly trying to get better and stronger in the gospel. It is a process that begins a new each day with prayer and scripture study and close each day with repentance, prayer and a renewed spirit to do the Father's will. I have serve the Lord by working as a home teacher where I have ministered to the daily need of those individuals under my care. I have served my ward or community of saints by organizing activities for wholesome interaction. I have also served the children of the church by serving in the nursery where I played and engaged with children from 18 months to three years. The spirit found within the walls of that nursery is the sweetest I have ever felt. They truly are as Christ pure and innocent
