Chat With a Mormon Online
I guess you could say I'm just your typical college student. I enjoy going to school and interacting with people from all walks of life. When I'm not at work or school I spend most of my time studying and taking my wife out on dates. I enjoy sports and the occasional movie when I have a free moment. There's a lot in life I still haven't done yet but I don't let that get me down. I look forward to what the future holds and the possibilities that are waiting for me.
Well, it took me 23 years before I truly felt like I was converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Finally after trying to do everything by myself I realized how badly I needed help. I couldn't do everything on my own anymore and decided to try and live the gospel teachings of Christ. My life has never been better! I don't live perfectly and still make many mistakes but I feel the love of the Savior urging me to try a little harder and do a little better each time I stumble. I'm Mormon because my soul is always comforted in the redeeming atonement of Jesus Christ. I have peace even in times of chaos.
I'm often amazed when I realize how blessed I am to be part of the Lord's restored gospel. I wonder what I did to deserve so many blessings. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fullness and its spreading forth throughout the world. I'm humbled at the great responsibility the Lord has blessed me with to spread his good news and testify of Him. The Restoration of the Gospel is for all people regardless of wealth, class, education, or color. It doesn't matter who you are, the message of Jesus Christ provides hope and joy to all who want it.
My wife and I teach the 4 year old class in sunday school. Sometimes I feel like the kids are actually teaching me. I'm trying to duplicate their humility and honesty as I go throughout my week. I read my scriptures and pray just about every night but I'm not perfect at it. Thankfully the Lord is patient with me as I try to overcome the shortcomings in my life. The best nights are when my wife and I have our own Family Home Evening and I get to listen to her talk about her faith and testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. Her faith truly strengthens my testimony and I realize how important it is to have loved ones in your life.
