Testimonials Monday

Every first Sunday of the month, I have that little puff that wants me to give my testimony, but it seems that my heavy body needs something like a tornado to actually get up and give it.

Well since last Testimonial Sunday, I decided that if I just can gather the courage to do it on "THAT" Sunday, I will post it in my blog Monday morning and I will call it "Testimonials Monday" why not? can I do that?

Anyway, I have the KNOWLEDGE of truthfulness of the church, I believe that my faith went from a believer to a "knower" of the gospel; the Summer I went to Palmyra and received a personal, Very Real, revelation of the things I had never seen but I deeply believed. I can't say it enough that the church is true, and the teachings within it, without reviving the moment I realized it myself.

I don't expect you to believe me, I expect you to question it; to look at my faith with skepticism; to challenge my believes, and to criticize what I do and don't do, "BUT" I would like you to open your mind and your heart while you do it, and perhaps to give a prayer before your journey across my faith.

If you pray to have an open mind and heart, a sense of peace and understanding might fill you in, and your questions would be answer. I say it might because all depends on your prayer.

I was introduced to the church at a younger age and thought the basics, soon after I moved on and the church was not longer in my life. Many years later I returned to the church, and I was happy but as I learned more about it, my questions, challenges and skepticism grew. I was there where you are right now, it only took a sincere prayer, and open mind and a contrite spirit to received the revelation I was looking for.

I didn't see God or Jesus Christ, through the Spirit of revelation I saw what I needed to see, felt what it was there to feel, and learned what it was there for me to learn.

Now I have the knowledge that I'm here for a purpose, perhaps I haven't figure it out yet but I'm working on it. I know that the church is true, the teachings are there to guide us to our Heavenly Father, I know of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and I'm grateful for it, because it will allow me, and my family to return to our Father in Heaven as a Forever Family.

I leave my Testimony in the name of Jesus Christ

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
