Chat With a Mormon Online
Hi, I'm Ammon and I was born and raised in Denmark. I moved to the US to study and this is where I meet the woman of my dreams and we are now married. I am studying in college and finishing up a bachelors degree. I plan on getting my doctorate in physical therapy and will probably be moving pretty soon.
Being happy has always been important to me. My greatest happiness comes from a deep inner peace. I feel this peace because I know that my creator exists and loves me. I have someone I can turn to. I have found so much hope and peace when facing struggles and challenges. I know that no matter what happens in my own life or the lives of people I know and love, that God is mindful of me and my needs. I feel less concern knowing that as I try to be a good person that loves God and my neighbor that I am allowing God to help me become someone so much better. I guess I'm Mormon for a lot of reasons but one of the most important reasons is because I want to be close to God. I want to be near him because he helps me discover and fulfill my potential.
Understanding how much God loves me happened as I read the Book of Mormon. At first I read the book and thought it was boring because of the older language it used but as I kept reading I started looking past that and started learning about a people who continually made mistakes, who forgot God, who made mistakes but would then try to turn things around and become better. The people I was reading about had a hard time turning back to God but God gave them a lot of chances and a lot of help. I could relate to that people and their struggles to come closer to God. As I read about them I could see in my own life how I often repeated mistakes but how God also reached out to me. IT taught me about God's love and his son Jesus Christ. As I read the Book of Mormon I continue to learn more about how much God loves me. It brings a spirit of peace.
I live knowing that this life is my chance to really grow and develop. I live my faith when I wake up in the morning and pray to God, my father in heaven. I tell him whats on my mind how I am feeling and how I need His help, I tell him about things that are making me feel discouraged and what I fear. I ask him to help me try to understand his will for me. I express gratitude for Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me. Every day this is the beginning of how I live my faith. Conversing with my creator starts my day with my mind on my Father who watches over me and my Savior Jesus Christ.
