Hey Guys! You know I'm Emily, but did you know I'm a Mormon.
Why am I a Mormon?
Have you ever felt that something is so true or correct, but you might not know why you feel that way? This is what the gospel is for me. Before I came to this earth I knew of Christ and his gospel. While learning of the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints I felt this way. They were things that were familiar and true. When I have felt this spirit so strong I could not deny it. Beyond just the feelings I have had, there is so much more when seeing the church in action.
There is so much love and service in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. The church truly models itself after the teachings of Jesus Christ. Whatever Jesus would do is how the church acts now. When there is a natural disaster or other calamity, the church is normally there lending help and support. This is same on an individual level, members of the church strive to reach out and help those in need around them. This may be spiritually, physically, emotional etc.
The combine power of my feelings of the truthfulness of the gospel and the works of the church have prompted me to be a part of this great church. I know that it is true, I hope that you will also take the opportunity to know for yourself by reading The Book of Mormon and taking the challenge found in Moroni 10:4-5.
I know that life isn't easy for anyone. We each have our own burdens to bear, but I know that I can bear the hardships of my life because of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I know because, I lean on him I can make it through these hard times and so can each of you. Through his atonement, he has felt all that we have. Each of us is loved. I invite you to visit mormon.org for more information.
I hope that you will check out the movie and learn a little bit more about Mormons. It is easy to judge someone we do not know, take some time to understand. Plus hop around and visit some of the other bloggers!
