Why I am a Mormon

i grew up in the church through my family and i have had some great challenges i have had to go through and i know that my father in heaven was there for me to bring me out of that pain and suffering and i know that the Book Of Mormon is the true word of God and his words and miracles shall not cease The Book of Mormon , Families, and Repentance Allow me to share with you my Testimony of these things... We have been taught by Harold B. Lee " The most important of the Lord's work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own homes" The Power of The Book of Mormon and Families is what brings the desire into our Hearts to strive to live like the Savior this is Followed through Repentance because the Family is striving to live the Gospel they can share their feelings and grow intertwined as a family and they are more prepared to face The Evils of the World. Their testimonies strengthen their spirits are aligned with the Savior and their vision of a bigger picture from our Father in Heaven is Enlarged they notice their divine potential both individually and as a Family. They then Embrace our Father in Heaven's Plan of Happiness and Rely on the Atoning Sacrifice of the Savior Jesus Christ desirous to change and to Become. They will stand together defending whats most precious to them Just as Captain Moroni raised the title of Liberty they Raise a title of Unity and Power in the Home and Family. Their children will stand Valiant and stronger just as the Army of Helaman "The Stripling warriors" They will be warriors of our Father in Heaven that fight with all their Hearts, all their Might, Mind and Strength to show their Love for God to Bring the World His Truth!!! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

i was born in the church and i am currently in the Washington Everett mission and i am so glad to be a Friend and servant of my Heavenly Father and to share his restored gospel with all his children and to bring all those around me happiness and peacefulness i know that i am a child of God and he is my Lord and King. I Just am so very happy Because of the many miracles and blessings in my life although it did require Faith and Obedience thats what made it even more worth the Journey. For i know that by being faithful and obedient i have shown love for all men and mostly my Heavenly Father and His Son my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Through him was i shown such a great example of how to show love perfectly and purely this is what we call Charity which is THE PURE LOVE OF CHRIST. Such an experience has allowed me to see His children the way he does or in other words "with an eye single to the glory of God" seeing them for their divine potential. My testimony has grown through out the years of my life. But as I have been on my mission my testimony has grown much stronger than ever before of My savior Jesus Christ in whom I witness is the only begotten of the Father of Heaven in whom he was pleased for his great love and obedience to Him. He did it for us so we too can learn to be like Him to prepare us for that great day of His coming. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Matthew Aaron Tousley
Temples are for the ordinances of those who have passed on from this life to help those who did not know or accept the gospel of Jesus Christ in this life. Temples give them the chance to accept the teachings and ordinances that are done in the temple. Show more Show less
