Where I stand

2:27 PM

So today I stumbled on a little something that made me really feel I had some things to share. I was cruising Facebook when I saw something about my church, the Mormon church. It was the questions of someone who used to be a member, and all the reasons they lost their testimony.

I have to say something, and some of you aren't going to like it or care. But I need to say it.

I love the church that I belong to more than anything. It is my rock. I would not be here without it. I'm not perfect. Other members of my faith aren't perfect. But the happiness and light the Gospel brings, is. It's completely perfect. God is perfect. And that's all that matters.

Some people say to be a member of my church means getting rid of your independent thinking. I disagree. I feel, and think for myself. There are some things about my religion that I don't fully understand. But the things that I do know outweigh those. In importance and in number. My faith is bigger than those fears. 

This isn't meant to be shoved in anybody's face or to put anybody down. I just had to make sure that it was clear where I stood. 

If you have questions for me about my testimony or my religion, feel free to ask. I'd love to talk to you about it.

I'm a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.

Happy Sunday everyone!
