Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on January 26, 2014. To be exact I was baptized on January 25, 2014 and was confirmed tomorrow after then. Way back December 28, 2013 (Saturday) was the first time I met the word "Mormons" and out of my opacity knew that one of my Uncle was one of them. He introduced us, together with my 4 cousins, the missionaries of the said group. And I was shocked for the words uttered by the missionaries those times for their words were full of wisdom, and out of my curiosity I decided to be taught by them. First, my parents whom also came from other sects were greatly disagreed my participation in the lesson but then, as I show them my willingness, by setting as an example, my firm attention, and allotting time for the assignments given by the missionaries in cultivating my faith, they somehow agreed. And as the time pass on, as I ask in faith to the Lord, He answered me not literally by talking to me directly but by the works and deeds of the Mormon members, the dedication of each members to help others, and to the firm belief to their Faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by magnifying my callings namely, "Ward Indexing Specialist" & "Ward Historian".

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

James Anthony Duero
A testimony is a spiritual witness given to an individual by the Holy Ghost. The foundation of a Mormon’s testimony is the knowledge that Heavenly Father lives and loves us; that Jesus Christ lives, that He is the Son of God, and that He carried out the infinite Atonement; that Joseph Smith is a prophet, which God called to restore Jesus Christ’s church to the earth; that we are led today by a living prophet; and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Savior’s Church restored on the earth today.

What is being a Mormon like?

James Anthony Duero
One of the greatest reasons for being here on earth is to "have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25). Personal prayer, scripture study, and attending church helps us better understand that the best way to find joy and happiness in this life is to know about Our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness, the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to strive to keep God's "law" (Proverbs 29:18). Families are an essential part of God's Plan and much of how we live focuses on our families. We want to share the happiness we enjoy with everyone we can through service, missionary work, and contributing to society. Show more Show less
