Chat With a Mormon Online
I am 21 year old young man. I am attending collage and I am thinking of going into Aerospace Engineering. I have recently returned from serving a two year mission for the church. I served in the California Riverside Mission.
Why am I a Mormon? That is a good question. I am a Mormon because I have come to know that the Restored gospel of Jesus Christ is true! I have seen it change the lives of many, many people not just my own. I took the challenge that the Prophet Moroni gave at the end of the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10:3-5. He challenged us to read the Book of Mormon, ponder over it, and then to act and pray. I have prayed and come to know that this is Jesus Christ church on the earth today. I did this independent of any other person. It is my own witness from the Holy Ghost that drives me to be as obedient as I can to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ wants me to be a Mormon— So I AM!
The Book of Mormon has brought me closer to my Father in Heaven because it teaches me the things that I need to do in my every day life. It is as the Prophet Joseph Smith taught the best book on the face of the earth. I know that it has brought peace to my life in time of trial. It brings peace, love and joy to me each time that I read it. The Book of Mormon simple teaches the commandments that I am expected to live each and every day. It is our hand book of instructions of how to draw closer to God.
I strive to live my faith each and every day. I try to do my best in the things that Heavenly Father wants me to do. I want to make him proud of me. One of my deepest desires is to know that I am doing well in his eyes. I know that he is pleased with me as I live the commandants each day and as I fell peace and happiness that only comes from the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
