What being a Mormon means to me...

For those of you who may not know, the religion that I belong to is not called "The Mormon Church" rather it is called "The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints." I believe with all my heart that this is Christ's Church. Being a member of this church means everything to me. It is my life. I believe in God the Eternal Father and in his Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. These three heavenly beings bring purpose into my life and provide me with an eternal perspective which enriches my daily life. I believe in a plan of happiness, a plan of salvation, a plan of redemption. This plan provides a way that through the atonement of Jesus Christ I can be forgiven of my sins, become perfected and return to live with God.

I believe that marriage between a man and a women is ordained of God and that holy temples are the place where sacred ordinances and covenants can be performed. I know that families can live together for eternity. I know that I am a daughter of God and have the potential to become like him. I know that without God I am nothing but with him he can mold me into greatness.

I know that God created me in his image and that I lived with him before I came to this earth.

Prayers are indeed heard by a Heavenly Father and are answered. The Spirit of God brings comfort, direction, guidance and peace into my life.

I am hopelessly flawed and often feel overwhelmed by life but as I turn to God I find peace and the strength to do what is right. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the root of all the happiness that I experience in life.

How blessed I am to have this knowledge.

This is the Testimony of Jeffery R Holland, an apostle of Jesus Christ. I Believe his words.
