Some of you know I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I have written several posts about being a member of this church, and as I looked at the calendar I knew exactly what I wanted to write about today:
Twenty-seven years ago TODAY I made the choice to be baptized. I was 15! As they say, “Where has the time gone?!” Geez, I could wax philosophical. But, I won’t. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel and I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. I know it. I have a testimony of Family History work and the importance of seeking out our kindred. Just this week I was working on the Family Search site and searching for sources on one of my mom’s line. I found one of my ancestors listed on a U.S. Census but who was not listed on the website. Which means no one had any record of her! Quickly I did some more
digging searching and was able to verify who she was via the sources (I LOVE the sources!) And this was all in a matter of less than 1 hour!
