Day 26: Your Religious Beliefs

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the only true church on the face of the Earth today.  We have a prophet living on the Earth who guides and directs us.  I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and He knows and loves me.  This means I have a divine heritage. I know that Jesus Christ came to this Earth and atoned for my sins.  I love him so much for doing so.  Although he atoned for my sins, I still must live my best life...for it is by faith and works that we are saved. Jesus Christ lives!  He was resurrected. I believe that the family unit is essential.  Families can be together forever!  I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and instructed him.  Because of this, the church was restored.  I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and should be studied as a companion to the Holy Bible.  When we study the teachings of our Savior we learn how to be like him and how to obtain true happiness. 

I am grateful that I was taught these principals as a young lady and as I have grown older I have been given the opportunity to study them out so I can know for myself.  I do not believe these things because my family believes them or they are the only teachings I have been exposed to.  I have searched out other religions and studied them looking for the best in each.  I have questioned my own beliefs.  Through this process I gained a testimony and came to realize the truthfulness of these beliefs.
