I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Did you know that I am a Mormon? Well I am. In fact, look at the side bar there. See that button that says, "I'm a Mormon." ? Well it's true. That button is not lying. In fact, if you click on it, it will take you to a magic portal where you can learn all about Mormons, starting with ME!

I've decided to start a new series on this little blog of mine. You see once a month in church, usually the first Sunday, we have what is called fast and testimony meeting. Fasting is when you choose to skip two meals, so for about 24 hours you go without food or water. If you've never read the Bible I will tell you, one time Jesus did that for 40 days in a row. That is a long time.

Well on the Sunday that we do this, during the first hour of church (I go to church for three hours, in case you didn't know) instead of having assigned speakers get up and talk (we don't have a preacher that preaches) anyone can get up and bear their testimony, or in other words, share the things they believe and/or know to be true. I've decided to do that here on this blog. It may not be every month, but when I do it'll always be on the first Sunday. I don't want this to be overbearing to anyone that reads my blog that isn't a member of my church, but my faith is who I am, and I want to share that with you.

So for this month this is what I want to say to you. I know that God lives, and I know He loves me. I know He does many things for my good, and that He is directly involved in my life. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that He came to this earth to live a perfect life, and teach us the laws and ordinances of His gospel. I know that He suffered and atoned for all the sins of this world, that all men and women could overcome sin while in this life. I know that He overcame death through being hung on the cross, and being resurrected on the third day.

Jesus Christ did all of this because He is my perfect older brother and He loves me. He and Heavenly Father (God) are one in purpose, and with the Holy Spirit the three of them make up the Godhead. I know Heavenly Father has a perfect plan for all of His children, and that with the other members of the Godhead His plan has gone forward, and I was able to come to this earth to learn to be more like my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ.

Those are the things I know. My life is not perfect, and it is rarely easy, but I do know those things. If you have any questions, or are interested in learning more about my church, I invite you to click on the link in my sidebar and find out more. Or send me a comment or an email if you'd like! I just ask that you be polite, if your only purpose in commenting/emailing is to tell me I'm crazy I ask that you just refrain from doing that. If you are not interested in learning more, I hope you keep reading my blog, because I love having you here :)
