Heber J. Grant stated, “I believe there is nothing in all the world that can compare with the joy that a man feels when he realizes that he has been the instrument in the hands of the living God of reaching some honest heart, inspiring in it a love of God and the desire to serve Him.
As Mormons, it is our sacred responsibility to share the gospel with all of our “heart, might, mind, and strength.” Not only does it help bring those around us the Gospel of the Jesus Christ but it also inspires us and strengthens our own personal testimonies of the Church. Often we feel too overwhelmed with our personal lives to find time to do missionary work and seek out those looking for the Church, but with the Mormon Testimonies, it has never been so easy.
Mormontestimonies.org is a website that aims at compiling written and video testimonies from members worldwide. This site is viewed by investigators of the Church, as they seek more information and support. Your individual experience, story, or conversion to the Church could greatly impact an investigator. Taking the few minutes to write about how the Mormon Church has inspired your life can have a great impact. You will also be able to view other people’s testimonies, under the “Browse Testimonies” link. Testimonies will be classified by geography, generation, by name, and stakes and wards. The process of submitting your testimony is easy. Simply go to the Mormon Testimonies website and under “Quick Start,” type your name (or pseudonym if you would like to remain anonymous) and start writing!
This is an extremely effective yet easy way for Mormons to share their testimonies. So much information, both positive and negative about the church, is communicated through the internet now, and this is a wonderful way for Mormons to combat negative information on the web about the church. Your words have the potential to touch and inspire those looking for the truth.
