I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and his healing, infinite atonement. I know that His suffering paid the price for my sins, afflictions, and sorrows, and for yours, if we only accept Him as our Savior and Redeemer, repent when we sin, keep His commandments, and always remember Him. It is only in and through Christ that we will return to our Heavenly Father sanctified and pure. Jesus Christ reaches to where we are when we have lost all hope and faith to pull us out of our miserable places. He wipes us off and sets us in the right direction. He has done this for me, when I was undeserving. I will never forget the sweet peace I felt in taking his hand and allowing Him direct my life for the first time. I know that the Holy Ghost is real, and I seek daily for His presence in my life by trying to maintain an inviting atmosphere for Him. I have felt His influence when I needed comfort, or felt alone. I have received guidance and support, and I have enjoyed prompting to direct me. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet. He did see Heavenly Father and Jesus in a vision, and he did receive gold plates from the angel, Moroni, and translate them to become the Book of Mormon. I am grateful to have the priesthood on the earth today, and I have been blessed richly by attending the temple. I want all my posterity to know that I am a woman who knew. I want you to understand that true joy comes from living and applying the principles, and partaking in the ordinances, of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This does not mean you will have a perfectly happy life if you do, or that you will be free from temptation and trials; but you will have the Armor of God and it will protect you and give you the strength to endure all things.
