[raw]The Book of Mormon is a volume of ancient scripture that contains the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by ancient prophets. It gives an account of the ancient inhabitants of the American continent and God’s dealings with them. When I read the Book of Mormon, it helps me have greater love for those around me. I know that I feel this way because the Book of Mormon teaches Jesus Christ’s words, and Jesus Christ’s words are true and lead us to true happiness.
Here is a personal witness of the Book of Mormon by Eun Jung, Korea.
I can always find answers in the Book of Mormon. I’m learning many things from studying it, and I feel I’m changing in good ways.
Recently I was considering what to do now that my six children are raised. I wondered what Heavenly Father desired me to do.
In my regular scripture study, I came across one of the stories of war in the Book of Mormon. I was struck by Moroni’s call to action in defending, among other things, families (see Alma 46:12). The Nephites were determined to protect their families. As I read that story, I decided that no matter what, I wanted to have that same purpose in my life, to fight for family. It was a personal, tender experience.
I know that the Book of Mormon was written for our day. I am grateful that I can go to this book for direction in my life; it truly is an iron rod (see 1 Nephi 8).
