Why I am a Mormon

Why am i a Mormon? Because i know the church is true. I've felt the confirming witness of the Book of Mormon after reading and praying about it and know that with the Bible its the word of God. Because of the this i know that Joseph Smith really did see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and the priesthood was restored through him in the modern days. I get an amazing feeling when I serve people and I've always had a strong testimony of service. A huge part of my testimony was built when i went on a church history trip after my senior year visiting places like the sacred grove and Susquehanna river; that trip changed my views and really gave me the desire to serve a mission which is where i am now. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is real and with it we can come closer to him every day. I know that being a Mormon may not always be the easiest but i know that its the thing that makes me the happiest. I love serving God and serving his children and know that his plan is the true way to happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others and trying to be an example to those around me. I go to church every week and study in my scriptures every day. Im also serving a mission right now which is awesome because i can help others come closer to Christ all the time by serving them, teaching them, and just trying to treat them as Christ would. I live my faith by trying to "find the one" everywhere i go just like the savior would.
