My Testimony

I've felt that this is something I need to write, something that needed to be shared. This will be fairly short, but this is my testimony that the LDS church is true.

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I know it is true.

I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God and he restored the church on this earth and he transcribed the Book of Mormon which was written by the prophets of old as another testament of Jesus Christ. 

I know that all prophets after Joseph Smith were also called of God.

I know President Thomas S. Monson is the current prophet called of God and he receives revelation from God that he shares with us. 

I know that the commandments given by God in these latter-days are meant to help and bless us and if we follow them and keep them we will be blessed. 

I know that tithing, while difficult for me to remember sometimes, is a wonderful way to show gratitude to my Father in Heaven for all that he has blessed me with. 

I believe so strongly in the power of prayer and know that God listens. 

I know that at the age of seventeen when, at a moment of complete turmoil and pain, I knelt down and prayed for help, prayed for my life to be saved, the arms of my Father in Heaven wrapped around me in a hug to comfort me, tell me everything would be okay, and to promise me that I could make it through all that I was experiencing. 

I know that despite all the many mistakes I've made in my life, God has never once given up on me and he is always on my team. 

I know that even though I experience horrible depression, God still loves me. 

I know that I am married to Chris for eternity. 

I know that the many temples on earth are a house of God and that nothing compares to the peacefulness felt inside of those buildings. 

I know that my family is sealed together for eternity. 

I know that this church is true, that this gospel is true, and I know that while I still experience depression no matter what, I am, and always will be, at my happiest when I am following the commandments, going to church, and saying my prayers to my Father in Heaven, who loves me unconditionally. 


If any of my readers are not LDS and would like to learn about my religion, please send me an email and I will do my best to answer any questions or direct you to others who can better answer your questions. 

And if any of my readers would like a copy of the Book of Mormon I would be happy to send you one! Just send me an email and I'll do my best to get one to you soon.
