Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i know of the truthfullness of this church and the authority that is holding this church together. I know that the priesthood authority has been brought back to the earth from our loving heavenly father. I know that this gospel is the ONLY that we can receive true happiness and return with our heavenly father. I know that jesus christ is my savior and that through him i can be forgiven and be able to be with my family for eternity after this life. Ive had multiple times in my where my faith has been tested but its because of me fulfilling my duty by reading scriptures, praying, and going to church every week, and magnifying my calling is what keeps my foundation on christ so strong so that the adversary cannot break down my foundation. I know that god lives and that jesus christ lives and because he was ressurected we all will be ressurected and be with them in the celestial kingdom. I want to fulfill my patriarchal blessing and receive the blessings that heavenly father has on store for me. It is only through the atonement of jesus christ that we can be saved, forgiven, and have eternal life. Im grateful to be a mormon and be a member of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints.

How I live my faith

I participated in my ward back home a lot i did a lot of service by helping other families that are in need of others help. Also helping any youth with there projects that they are working on as well. I loved to help out with the classes i was in by helping others understand the lessons. I was assigned as a home teacher with my dad for a year and we would always go out every month and teach and offer service to the families we were assigned to. I also had a lot of times having me and another priest go and give the sacrament to those who are not able to make it to church because of health or physical issues. My family and i always went every year to the vineyard to pick the grapes and lay them out on top of sheets of paper for them to dry out to make the raisins.
