Sunday

on May 3, 2010

I’m LDS. For those who might not know what that means – I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – or as most know us by, Mormon. I love being a member of this Church. Sure, our services are three hours and a bit longer than most, but really, you don’t even notice.

Each first Sunday of the month is Fast Sunday. This is where we fast for two meals (usually breakfast and lunch) and search deep for personal revelation. During Church, it’s also the time where we share our testimonies of our Heavenly Father, the Book of Mormon and anything else that we have been blessed with in our lives. Today, for the first time in four years, I shared my testimony. I talked about how blessed I am to have so many wonderful people in my life through the Church and how supported I am within the Church and certain members of my family. How my husband loves me no matter what I believe (because he’s not a member) and how I’ve finally accepted 100% that this is who I am no matter what people want to Judge about me, or even if it causes friendships relationships with my family to be lost.

I know that it’s the true Church. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God when he was 14 and I know that Heavenly Father loves me, Jesus knows every pain, hurt, happy thought or struggle that I have gone through, am going through or will go through. I am so blessed for everything I have been given – that I have a wonderful husband, a home of my own and the means to start a family. I know the Book of Mormon is true, that is is a true testament of Jesus Christ in latter days. I have a true faith and my heart dances with Joy every day that I am always reminded and of the power of God and that I am able to grow in my testimony each and every time as well. I leave these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
