Is There Really a God?

Today one of my seminary students shared a question he had recently been pondering.  He said that after a discussion he had in one of his school's science class he began thinking, Is there really a God

Robert D. Hales said, "Gaining a testimony and becoming converted begins with study and prayer, then living the gospel with patience and persistence and inviting and waiting upon the Spirit." 

Elder Hales' quote makes me appreciate the effort my seminary students make each day to come to class so they can gain their own personal testimony that, yes, there is a God.  We are His children.  He sent Jesus Christ to show us the way to live and to also to atone for our sins so we can return to live with Him again.   

To answer my students' question, Russell M. Nelson reminds us that, YES, we know there is a God as we ponder the miracle of the human body.

This year in seminary we are studying the Book of Mormon.   In this video a young bishop in England describes how the Book of Mormon came to life for him and changed his perspective forever.

  1. Thanks, Kathleen, for sharing this thoughtful post. You are in such a unique position to not only model for your seminary kids the best way to live, but to point them in the right direction so they can learn for themselves what you have known for years: that we are children of a loving God.
