To know you must DO

Stand: Strength of Youth 2013

"Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved,
 until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly,
 saith the Lord. Amen." D&C 87:8

I am nowhere near perfect and have my share of flaws. I grew up by no means being the "goody goody" Mormon girl, my priorities were entirely worldly things or matters. Sure, I believed that it was true, but I didn't know. But as I started to make the right choices and living my beliefs; I came to know of the truthfulness of this Gospel. If you have ANY doubts, pray. I can tell you a thousand times that I know this church is true, but you will not know for yourself. Gain a testimony brothers and sisters!! Build it on the foundation of Christ and you will not fall. (Helaman 5:12) 

Live the standards. How can you gain a testimony of the Gospel and its' principles if you are unwilling to abide by them? Stand as a valiant disciple at all times, in all things and in all places. If you want to know you must DO

I know this church is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet ordained of God sent here to restore his church, and I know that if we follow the commandments, and if we live, love and share the gospel we will be lifted up in the last days and be exalted in the presence of our Lord and our Savior. All the temptations and struggles in the world can be overcome by our father in heaven, and as we seek his counsel he will guide us. I testify of this, in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, amen.
