My Testimony

I know though that I am about to embark on something great, but I can only feel like something big is about to happen. I don't know what it is but... something is going to happen soon. In this case I want to bear my testimony so that when I or others are in need of a spiritual uplifting it is able to be read.

This is for my family, friends, and specifically for Teylor Lytle and Matt Stewart.

I have a testimony of God the Eternal Father and his son Jesus the Christ. I know that they love me. I know that God hears my prayers that he blesses my life with the ability to live in such a great and marvelous time. I have testimony in the atonement that Christ paid for me, that my sins are able to be forgiven so that I may be able to return to God. I wish to be more like him, compassionate, loving, obedient, humble. I know that one day I will have a chance to meet him and I will only be able to try to thank him. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. That Joseph Smith was able to kneel and ask for the truth and received an answer from God himself. That the Book of Mormon was translated in the hands of a modern day prophet. I know that it is true. I believe in the words which were written by prophets of old. I have a testimony in the family. That it is the single most important thing in our lives. That all paths lead to the temple so that we may be able to live with our families forever. I believe in the message of hope. That in these latter days that we should be happy. That with our family we may be able to endure to the end. That we should have hope and love so that we may be able to get through the rough times. I love my Mother and Father. My mom is the single most important woman in my life, I love her so much. I wish that I could be more like her. She holds our family together and loves me with all her heart. I am grateful for a father who shows me that no matter what life throws at you, you keep going. I testify that God is my father, and loves all his Children. I believe in Jesus Christ and I am prepared to meet him again. I so testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
