Latter Day Saints

Thank you for visiting my testimony page.  This is where I get to share with you how I feel about this amazing work of scripture.  I am a member of “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”, sometimes referred to as “Mormons”.  The word “Mormon” is in reference to the name of a prophet that lived in the Americas about 400 A.D.  Mormon was entrusted with the records of a people that had left the land of Jerusalem and came to the Americas 600 years before Christ’s earthly ministry.

Mormons believe the Bible to be scripture just like any other Christian sect.  We also believe The Book of Mormon to be the word of God, an ancient record of the Americas that like the Bible, testifies of Jesus Christ.  Did you know this book has sold over 140,000,000 copies and has been translated in 107 languages? It has had a huge impact on my life and so I love letting others know about the happiness and joy that can come from reading The Book of Mormon.

Even people who doubt the implications of this amazing book still find enjoyment in reading about the many wonderfully amazing stories contained in The Book of Mormon.  One of my favorite stories summarized on this website is "Christ in America".  This story tells about Christ’s visit to the Americas after his crucifixion in Jerusalem, and corresponds to pages 422-462 in The Book of Mormon.  Reading these 40 pages would be a great addition to anyone’s bucket list.

Those who do read the entire book are rewarded with a promise on page 529, versus 3-5.  This promise states that if you ask God, he will manifest the truthfulness of this record to you.  I have tested this amazing promise and have experienced this wonderful witness.  I know the Book of Mormon is true and that it testifies of Jesus Christ.  This witness has brought me much meaning and happiness and has helped me realize a new and wonderful power in guiding my life.

May your life also be blessed by reading The Book of Mormon.  I testify to you that The Book of Mormon is true and is a witness that Jesus is the Christ, our Savior and Redeemer.  And I leave this testimony with you in His name, even Jesus Christ.
