LDS 30 Day Blog Challenge!

So normally I think these 30 day challenges are just pointless and they are usually about things that no one cares about. But what if, for 30 days you could blog about something meaningful, something that was dear to your heart, and could possibly make a difference in someone else's life? So that's what my goal is going to be with this 30 Day LDS Blog Challenge, to perhaps shine the light of the gospel on others or maybe just one person, so we'll see how it goes...


Day 1: When did you become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? What has this membership meant to you?


I became a member of the church on September 13, 2009. I was introduced to the church through one of my best friends, Jessica McDonald. Being a member of this church gives me the knowledge of the plan of salvation. Meaning that through my membership in this church, I know that we were sent here to earth, to get a body, and to have experiences that would test our faith and give us a chance to overcome our trials, and to grow closer to our Heavenly Father. By living the commandments, and upholding sacred covenants made within the walls of the Holy Temple, we also can become more Christ like. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S Monson, and I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet who restored the church in these latter days. I know that when Joseph Smith knelt down in humble prayer to ask which church he should join, I know that he saw God the father, and his son Jesus Christ, who then told him that he was going to be the one who was to restore the true church upon the earth. I know that because of this account, the priesthood, or the authority to act in God's name has also been restored to the earth today, and that it can be used in all aspects of our lives, from blessing the sacrament, to healing the sick. BUT, the most important thing that my membership in this church has taught me is that anything that is unfair about life can be made up through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that because of this atonement, when I sin, or when something is bothering me, or when I feel inadequate to do something, if I remember Christ, and his atonement, all my burdens can be made light, my sins can be forgiven, and I know that each time I turn to Christ and use the atonement, it just brings me one step closer to our Heavenly Father, and to Jesus Christ. I know these things to be true, and I owe that to my membership in this church. If you want to learn more, please click this link!
