Why I am a Mormon

I know the church is true, because I believe that Joseph Smith’s story of the first vision is absolutely true, and the fact that he chose to give up his life, rather than deny his testimony of the event, that he knew God knew really happened is a powerful witness to me. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed about it, and I know it is the word of God. I also know that God hears and answers my prayers because I have prayed to him in secret and he has answered me openly and blessed my life many times with things, and help that could have come to me in no other way but from God. I know that God Lives, and that Jesus Christ is his only begotten son in the flesh. I know that they love all of us here on earth, and that accepting the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the only way we can hope to return to live with our Father in Heaven. No one can or will ever prove to anyone that God is real or that the gospel is true, but each one of us can prove it to ourselves by doing what Christ asks us to do, and seeing the results in our lives. Blessings from God when we are obedient to his commandments are the only proof I need. I have tried life both ways, and I know which way leads to Heaven.

Here's to rebirth and the celebration of writing
