Though this blog is intended to reach all faiths, I feel it important for members of the Church to share their testimonies of the Savior and His restored gospel here for everyone to read and find spiritual strength. Please feel free to add your testimony in the comment box below!
My testimony is always growing as I continue to learn and practice what I know to be true. First, and foremost, I know that there is a God. He is our literal, eternal Father. He created us. He knows us, and He loves us each individually, so much so that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins.
God has a plan for each of us. Christ is the center of that plan. The ultimate outcome is for each of us to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father again, completely united with our families forever. To help us get there, God has provided a prophet once again upon the earth, to act as His mouthpiece. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. That prophetic line of succession has continued in an unbroken chain to the current prophet, Thomas S. Monson.
The Bible is the word of God. The Book of Mormon is also the word of God. Together, they teach the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a gospel of gladness. It’s principles and teachings bring peace to people’s lives, strengthen family relationships, and bring individuals closer to God.
Truth is available to all who seek it. Ask of God. Anytime. Anywhere. He is listening, and He will answer. I know this because I asked, and He answered. The gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to transform us into the very image that God created us to be – His. Let us take full advantage of applying these teachings, and day by day, one step at a time, strive to be more like Him whom we worship.
