Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a teenager going to high school. Psychology is my favorite school subject. I like to collect things - shells, rocks, old books and such. I used to have two rats. Animals are awesome. The Harry Potter series is amazing. My favorite primary song is "I'm Trying to be like Jesus."
I am glad to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I believe in the truthfulness and the goodness of its doctrine. Being a son or daughter of God means so much more than to have been brought into existence. The church strives and has strived to be an example to the world, and I am thankful to be a part of that movement. I am trying to live the gospel because I know, that if I do, the Lord will bless me with good fortunes and trials, while I experience hardships on the way. It won't be easy, but I know that it can make me stronger. I choose to do this. This is what I know is right.
The Savior's teachings of love have helped me greatly - to sympathize with people and to treat people with kindness. Everyone has a story to tell, everyone experiences life's ups and downs. It helps me to know that for all of the things going on out there in the world, I can do my bit by helping someone. Love is something too powerful to be put into words, it's an amazing thing.
People all have talents and gifts. My talents and gifts can bless others by being an example. When you reach out to one person or another, not only would that person take note of whatever you've done, but I'll bet at least one other person would observe as well. It could be anything from giving a compliment to letting an elderly person have the priority of a comfort, other people will notice your example, if not firsthand, then second, or third. It always helps to be an example.
I believe that the Restoration of the Gospel is a major blessing to the world. And that, is an understatement. I am glad that the gospel is restored to its previous glory. With powers such as the priesthood back in place, we can have wonderful miracles which the power of the priesthood is able to bestow. We have the fulness of, and can know the truth about the gospel. I know that other faiths say exactly the same thing, but I don't believe that those faiths have the fulness of, or the full truth about the gospel. The Restoration of the Gospel has helped many people, and has inspired our Prophets in helping as many others as we can, and so that they can give advice about things during our international church meetings, or General Conference, as it's called. These conferences were broadcasted in ninety two languages around the world last year. The Restoration of the Gospel is true, and it's power and blessings are to be shared among all. And the Mormon church and its members want it to be shared. That is why we have missionaries spreading the word all over the globe. The Gospel is true, and its wonder is astounding. The Restoration of the Gospel is a wonderful thing.
I go to church on Sundays, and in our church meetings we talk about the scriptures, give talks on gospel subjects, and listen to the ward choir or sing as a congregation. In church, our youth age groups have scripture and gospel discussions and talk about what we believe. It's a happy experience. We have youth groups of both girls and boys that participate in activities together - golf, frisbee, dancing, service projects - it's all fun. Church is really amazing.
