A Foundation for Faith, Pt 2

The Book of Mormon, a Foundation for Faith

"Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." 

The Church of Latter-Day Saints claims that the Book of Mormon is Scripture. But what is scripture in the first place? Scripture is defined as a body of text that is authoritative or sacred. To Mormons, the Book of Mormon is as authoritative as the Bible. This is because like the Bible, the writings contained came by the spirit of prophecy revelation to Prophets. Because the text and the doctrines contained came through the Holy Spirit that means the text is the word of God.

The Secret Power of Faith

I want to share a very personal story today. 

One of the greatest and most important lessons I have learned in my life, is that there is power in faith. I was taught that by the example of my mom, Eydie. My Mom is my absolute hero. There is no person in this world that is kinder or more gentle than she is. She is the greatest example of faith and trust in the Lord in my life, because almost ten years ago she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, or MS.
