Why I am a Mormon

When i was a little kid everything seems to be good, i thought that for being member of the church everything should be good but its not that easy, throughout my life i been having ups and downs, my parents they were divorced since I was a kid so i dont remember saw them together, it was very hard cause my siblings and me had to choose where do we want to go, we use to live with my mom and we just visited my dad once in a while, my mom work so hard to have her own company and she did it, we were good living like that but in life we need to face challenges, my mom had problems and she had to moved to USA, i was so sad cause i missed her and i was just a little baby, then we moved to live with my dad, my siblings and me, we had different lives even when we lived together, I personally had to face more physical challenges, i had to survived, there is lot of things that happened to me that the only thing that i can say its that im glad to be alive, when that was happening i went inactive, i didnt had the desire to do the right things, i thought there was no purpose for that, but even tough my life was hard i learn the things that i needed to learn to become who am i right now, i don't like my past at all, but there was this moment when i said this is gonna change and i start doing what i needed to do because i needed help, i knew that God can help us when nobody else can, so everything that i learn and who am i right now its because He was there, showing me where i should go and what i need to do, i gain a testimony of this church and that's when i said, i believe in this, and this is what i want for my life because even when we need to face challenges, even when life seems hard or when when we think this is the end, God help us in different ways and he have a plan for me, im glad for that, and now i do not regret my life even if it was something that didn't want, thats part of who I am, and who am I right now its all i want and i know that the blessings will be better.

How I live my faith

I live my faith living the rules that we need to follow, some people think that its hard to live with rules but the only thing that they do its help us to live worth it to be a better person so I live my faith showing the people that you can be an awesome person even following the things that for some people seem to be hard. I live my faith by serving others, being a friend, a teacher, a counselor and helping them to understand that they are more valuable that they think they are. Everything inside this gospel can give us happiness, joy, peace, love and endless feelings that we are going to have the desire to be worth it and clean even when life seems very difficult.
