In my adult life, I've always had a difficult time bearing my testimony. I know that it is an important thing to do, but I've always been a scaredy-pants or something. Recently, however, I've recommitted myself to being better about listening to the promptings of the Spirit (call it my General Conference resolution), and I've felt like I should share my testimony on here. It's kind of weird, and definitely out of my comfort zone, but here it is. Out there.
I'm a Mormon. Most of you probably are already aware of this, but just in case you didn't, there it is. I am grateful that I have a knowledge of the restored Gospel on the earth. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and suffered for my sins, as well as those of my family and friends. And yours. I also know that he was resurrected, paving the way for us to be as well.
I haven't always had a strong testimony. There was one semester in college where I really struggled. I was taking a class for my major at the time and some of the required reading left me rattled. In the end, I nearly failed the class and ended up changing my major, but my testimony was retained. Worth it. I now know more than ever that the Gospel is true.
Since today is Easter, please follow this link to a video, commemorating Christ's suffering, death, and resurrection. He is our Savior and He lives.
