We also would like to take a moment to share our personal testimonies, stories of our own personal conversions, and our own stories of how following our Savior Jesus Christ has changed our lives. We hope as you click through and read our stories and testimonies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, that you will feel as uplifted and encouraged by us as we are by you! We love connecting with our readers, that is why many of us do what we do! Please be kind and considerate in your comments. It takes great bravery for us to open our hearts and our mouths to share with you such a tender and personal part of who we are.
I was born into the most amazing LDS family, not amazing because we’re perfect in all that we do but amazing because of how much we all love each other. One of the most important principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is that families are forever. That means no “til death do us part,” it means that once we die, we are still a family in heaven. For me, this is everything. I have a little sister who passed away when she was just barely 18 months old and I was four. There isn’t a day that goes by that she’s not on my mind in one way or another. And there have been so many times that I know she’s watching and keeping tabs on our family, just waiting for that day we will all be one happy family again. And as a mom myself now, I can’t imagine not having K as part of my family for time and all eternity.
I also know that while I have the most amazing family here on earth, I also have the most amazing Heavenly family as well. My Heavenly Father knows me even better than my actual father. He knows what I need even when I don’t, He knows how to answer my prayers when I don’t even know what I’m praying for, and He knows how to comfort me when I need it the most. I know that I am a child of God because I have felt Him in my life over and over again. And no matter how far away I am or how many times I screw up, I can always turn to my Heavenly Father and my brother Jesus Christ, and they’ll open their arms to welcome me home, again and again.
To finish, I’ll leave you with the words to one of my favorite songs.
I may not understand it, but I know it’s true. I am a child of God, and you are too. Every single one of you. And if you don’t take anything else away from reading this post, just know that you have a Heavenly Father, and that He knows and loves you.
Now hop over to hear what these incredible women have to share.
