I was raised in a home where we often had family home evening and discussed the principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, namely faith, repentance, forgiveness, and baptism. We were taught to pray, my parents taught us to rely on prayer in all cases and in every situation.
Many years have passed and many prayers have been voiced from my heart. I know, my Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers and grants blessings according to those petitions. Prayer is the key to understanding the will of God in my life. Faith leads me to pray.
Over the years as I have studied the Bible and The Book of Mormon, I have come to know that these books of scripture are true. These two books contain the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. By living the gospel and through continued study I have gained this knowledge through the power of the Spirit of God.
The Savior said that “by their fruits ye shall know them”; the fruits of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are real. There is no other way to describe it. The doctrines of the Church help me to be a better Christian. The organization of the Church is that of what Christ established, with prophets, apostles, etc. We have no professional clergy, so we are equally blessed by opportunities to serve each other as we take on the responsibility to care for others in our local congregations. This gives each member a church family and support where ever you visit or move.
I share this that my children may know more about their father, and that you the reader may know more about me. I invite you to enjoy the same blessings that our loving Heavenly Father has for you and your family by learning more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
