Freedom To Do Goodby
I was asked to pray myself in personal prayer… Privately whether the lessons were true… Whether the Book of Mormon is true scripture… Whether Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I was amazed at the strength of the Spiritual answer through my whole being. But, that was nothing compared to the answer that blew me off my knees; Joseph Smith was indeed a true prophet of God. I sat there amazed at the clarity of answer.
As I wiped my tears away, I realized my worldly mind would need time to gain a spoken testimony of Joseph Smith due to slander from friends and family. But, I had a testimony it was true through the Spirit already.
I’m more free in this religion than I was in others. I have never found a church until this one that taught me to ask for the truth myself not through them or their representatives. It was weird and freeing at the same time.
