I was looking into the way Mormons live and praise God, and I couldn’t find many facts. I is it true that Mormons always have a happy and positive attitude towards things? This is a wild rumour, but do Mormons also have the same characteristics as Joshua Graham?

The Church’s missionary program is one of its most recognized characteristics.

Hi Ronaldo. I’m happy you posted your question here and that you want to learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormons are a lot like other people. We have good days and bad days, just like others. Our faith in Jesus Christ does bring a lot of peace into our lives. This faith often gives us comfort as we face our challenges. Perhaps that’s what you’ve noticed in your Mormon friends.

Sorry to say I don’t know who Joshua Graham is and I can’t speak for my fellow LDS who might happen to know him. But it is true that LDS try to be happy and cheerful about all of life, including the hard times, which can be many at times.

Just and FYI Life is hard, and being LDS doesn’t exclude us from the difficulties and trials of this life. Because the LDS faith has high standards in many areas of life perhaps we could have reason to not be as hopeful and pleasant as we attempt to be. That being said, I know that we also have a great sense of who we ARE, where we came from, and what God expects from us. This gives way to a great hope in not only our mortal life, but also hope leading into the post-mortal life to come.

Personally even when I am feeling I am at my lowest, it is my faith, grown and developed by the LDS Church’s teachings, that allow me not to get to down and especially never to give up; even when my life just seems to be falling apart.

I know that God Our Father is there, and Jesus Christ (His Son) is my Savior, and I know that through His Atonement I have a chance to repent, forgive myself (and others), sleep sound and start again the following day with a new and to do a little better than my previous day.

Recap: Not exempt from the hardships in this life, but yes I feel the true teachings and principles to be found and practiced in my LDS faith, do give that little extra reason to dig down deeper and try a little harder, and smile bigger.
