Chat With a Mormon Online
I currently attend BYU. I have a large family, I am one of 6 boys. I also have one little sister. My family is my most prized possesion. I think that the most important thing about me is that i believe happiness can be found in only one way. Every one on this earth wants to be happy, everyone yearns to feel good about themselves and find joy in their life. I have found that obedience to the commandments of God is the only way to find happiness and satisfaction in life. It really works.
I was born into a family with two parents who are faithful members of the church. I grew up learning about Jesus Christ and what Heavenly Father expects of me. I always had a sense of right and wrong but never had dedicated myself to the gospel nor had I ever had a real desire to give all my life for the gospel. Shortly after I graduated high school all of my friends became involved in drugs and I had to choose if I would participate or if I would live what I knew to be correct. I chose not to participate with my friends and this in turn caused me to lose all my friends. I spent many days alone and thinking about my life. For the first time I decided to read the Book of Mormon because i wanted to and because i needed help from my Heavenly Father. I remember praying for many days and reading for many hours. I dont know at what exact moment I receive my answer but I came to know that the Book of Mormon is true and that man can have joy if he will but obey God. I have had my trials since then and I will have trials in the future but I know that all will be okay and that I will be able to have happiness if I obey the commandments of God.
No matter what is going on in my life. I can always kneel down and talk to God, he listens and answers. I know of very few blessings as sweet as that of prayer. I would be lost in life if I could not talk with God and ask him what to do when I have difficult decisions to make. I know God enjoys hearing from us.
I have an official calling in the church. I am an ''indexer''. I register the names of those who have passed away so that the gospel of Jesus Christ can be offered to those who are not now upon the earth. I recently returned from my mission in Uruguay. I learned on my mission that every person must be baptized so that they can receive all that God has to offer. I find joy in serving others and helping others find joy as well. To anybody who reads this I would invite you to be baptized and keep the commandments of God, I know you will be happy if you do.
