My Testimony

When trying to decide what to write about today, I just thought that it was very important for everyone to know that I truly have a testimony of this church and I know how important it is to share that testimony. You never know when something in your testimony can be life changing for someone else, don't be afraid to share it! Stand up for what you believe in and share what you believe with those around you. So, here is the part of my testimony that I felt like I needed to share today...

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the only true church on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith restored the church and translated the Book of Mormon. I know that he devoted his life to protecting the word and because I know this I also know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that the Book of Mormon was written for us in our day and that we can receive guidance and answers to life's questions in it's pages. I know that God hears and answers our prayers even if He answers them in a way that isn't what we were hoping. I know that God has a plan for us, that everything that happens in our life happens for a reason and that God will pull us through any trial. I know that through prayer we can talk to our Father in Heaven and receive revelation and feel comforted. I know that our Savior died for each of us so that we could utilize the atonement and return to live with Him again someday. I know that coming to Christ and repenting of our sins is the only way to live in Celestial glory. Repentance is absolutely real and God's grace and mercy covers anything we've ever done and everything in our lives. No matter what we do, if you come unto Christ with a truly repentant heart, we can be forgiven and be clean again. I also know that the atonement isn't just for repentance, it is also for comfort because the Savior has felt every single one of our pains and hardships. I know that Jesus Christ understands everything I feel in this life because he knelt in the garden and felt it all. I know that our Father in Heaven will carry us through anything in our life. No matter how down or how worthless we feel, God can save us. He will never leave us alone, He is always there. I know that the gospel and this church are the only way to have true happiness. This church brings happiness that nothing else in this world can because the gospel brings happiness that lasts for eternity. I am so incredibly thankful to have this church in my life and because of this, I wish to share it with the world because everyone deserves to feel the indescribable happiness that the gospel brings. I know all of this because I have experienced it all in my life. I have read the Book of Mormon and received answers from God. I have used the atonement to feel comfort and to be made clean again. I have been saved by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when I have been at the lowest point in my life. I have had my prayers answered and received revelation from the Lord. I have felt the eternal joy that this church brings. I have felt God carry me through the toughest times in my life. I could never deny any of these things because I have seen them at work in my life. I could never doubt because I have felt the spirit and the Holy Ghost has made these things known to me. I know that if we put our full trust in God, He will never let us down. He loves us with unconditional and everlasting love. It's a kind of love that nothing can compare to. I have felt His love and continue to feel it everyday; it is truly the most wonderful feeling. I know that I am a child of God and a daughter of a King. I am so blessed. I have so much to be grateful for and I am so proud to be a member of this amazing church. There is no doubt in my mind that this church is true. I love the gospel and I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ.


  1. My name is Trevor, and I like studying other religions, and I was wondering where could I receive a hard back copy of the Book of Mormon. I requested it a few times from but I never received it. Thank you.

    1. Hello Trevor! I know that if you could get a hold of some LDS missionaries in your area that they would love to help you get your hands on one! And if that doesn't work out if you wanted to email me I would be more than willing to send you one!
