The Book of Truth! - MM

So I finally finished reading the Book of Mormon since I started my mission! And after finishing the book, I prayed.

I may have not experienced anything that was extraordinary, but I honestly felt at peace. The words that I had read a couple weeks ago came to my mind.... "Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?" (Doctrine and Covenants 6:23).  I knew then that was my answer!

I have been talking and bringing the Book of Mormon to many people, and I just got a stronger testimony! At least I finished the goal of reading the Book of Mormon before General Conference!

I reflected back on the stories that I had read and it is crazy! I watched Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, "Safety for the Soul" and I was left in amazement of how strong his testimony is of the Book of Mormon. And I was reflecting back of prophets and apostles of what they had to go through, from Noah to Joseph Smith, to even the living apostles and prophets. I just love the faith they have, to go and do the work that Heavenly Father has for them.

I have a strong sense of faith that the Book of Mormon is true, that this is the restored gospel that Jesus Christ put in this earth, and that we have living apostles and a prophet who guide this church, which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I know that God is love and He knows and understands us. I have faith, it may not be a world changer, but it is a life changer!
