Everything I do in life and the happiness I experience is because of the true and full gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that God and Jesus Christ are real and live. I know that God is our Heavenly Father and we are His children. He knows each and every one of us and loves us and always will. I believe that life is a journey of becoming like Him, inheriting all that He has, and being happy.
The restoration and story of Joseph Smith are true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who restored the gospel to its fullness. I know he could not have done it all himself. He had God on his side to help and guide him. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I know that the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ. I believe the words in that book to be true and I feel Heavenly Father’s love for me every time I read it. I also know that we can find answers to our questions in the Book of Mormon. I know that because God loves us, he has not left us alone and has given us a modern day prophet, Thomas S. Monson, to lead and guide His church and children on earth today. I know that the Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead and brings comfort to me during difficult times. The Holy Ghost helps me feel at peace when times are tough.
I believe in the Atonement. I know that the Atonement is the sacrifice that Christ made in order for us to return to Heavenly Father. He died and suffered not only for our sins and mistakes, but all the pain, sorrow, and heartache we would ever experience. He knows what we are going through because He has felt it and we do not have to do it alone. Christ lives and is there to guide us. I know He did all of this because He loves us and wants us to have joy. Life is full of challenges and hard at times, but I know that Christ makes it easier. I know that the Atonement allows us to feel Christ’s and God’s love for us and that brings so much comfort and strength to me. I believe that people can change and we can become a better person and who God wants us to be because of the Atonement. Christ invites all to come unto Him and be happy and the Atonement if for all that are willing to accept it.
These are the things that I have come to know for myself are true. This is my testimony.
