Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. I was taught the doctrine and principles since I can remember. But as I got older I wanted to know for myself that I knew this was true and I wasn't just relying on others around me and following them blindly. I knew God existed and was my Heavenly Father. I had felt Him. I would pray to Him and always receive answers throughout my life. I asked Heavenly Father for a confirmation that the Book of Mormon was true. The answer came to me that I already knew it was true. From growing up and learning about the church and what it teaches little by little I had felt confirmations little by little. Till one day I asked God and he showed me the testimony I had built for myself little by little. I have had too many miracle and blessings from God to ever doubt this church. I know this is the true church. I know Christ lives and is with us today. I know that for a fact. I know the power of the Atonement. Christ died and suffered for all of us so we can return to God. When we rely on Christ, our sufferings, pains, trials, and all the hard things in life can be eased. He won't take away our trials, but he will help us. He is there with us and knows what it is like. He felt all our pains. I know that. I know that we have a living prophet on the Earth today who receives revelation from God to guide this church. The prophet Thomas S. Monson helps guide us safely through this life. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I know that the scriptures are the word of God. They can guide us and give us answers for our lives is we seek them diligently. God speaks to us through the scriptures. I know the power of prayer works. God listens to us. He is our loving Heavenly Father. He loves hearing us. I know we have the power of God on this Earth. I know God is in the details of our lives. If we ask Him, in the name of Christ, he will tell us anything we need to know. God lives.

How I live my faith
