From Catholic to Mormon: Brandon’s Conversion Story

Here’s another conversion story shared on another blog I follow as part of the series on my blog, “The Conversion Chronicles”. Thanks for sharing this brandon.

Grace for Grace

A few weeks ago I was asked by our local missionaries to find some people willing to share their conversion story with one of the people they were teaching. I knew of a lot of my friends from various walks of life who had converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) so I asked for their conversion stories.

I appreciate the responses and will have a little “series” of posts called Mormon Conversion Stories. Each person’s story is unique and very personal, but it illustrates just how personal our Heavenly Father is when we open our hearts up to Him.

The first story I would like to share is from one of my friends named Brandon. He is a gifted illustrator and has a website: http://www.drawingfaith.blogspot.com where he has drawn images from various stories in the scriptures.

Here’s his story:

Little Mormon Dipped in Chocolate

Before they missionaries came a-knockin’ at my door one hot summer day, I knew nothing about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In fact the only ideas I had about the church came the cheesy old commercials from the 80’s. (Check out this link to see a few of these commercials-too funny: http://www.normons.com/the-best-old-school-mormon-commercials/ )

My missionaries, Sister L and Sister R, were so incredibly awesome and I think the friendship we built during my investigation played a big part in building my testimony. The first time I prayed about the Church and the gospel, it was confirmed to me that I had found something wonderful. When I finally had an opportunity to attend a Sacrament Meeting at the local ward, I was hooked. I have never been in a place with so many peaceful, spiritual, genuinely pleasant people. I was welcomed with open arms by the members…

Why I Became A Mormon

Hey everyone! So I know I wrote earlier that I wanted to post more on my blog…and well…I still do, but I have a huge deadline for my senior project at the end of this month and it’s a bit of crunch time for me. I wish this wasn’t the case, but I will get back to writing and hopefully writing more soon (I’m hoping to blog 2-3 times a week once my new “writer” site is finished.) In the meantime I really wanted to share this post. As someone who has found so much happiness and peace from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and who knows that its message is true, I found this post beautiful 🙂 Hope you enjoy.

Mormon In Minnesota

Before last year, I had never known anyone who was Mormon; not by choice, there just weren’t many Mormons around for me to know. Growing up, I went to a few different churches. I was baptized in one faith, confirmed in another, and attended church in a few more. All the while, I never quite understood why I was there or what made a particular church different from any other. I mostly just went to church because I thought that’s what you were supposed to do, but I thought maybe if I continued to go, I would be able to figure it out.

After a period of time without any church attendance, I moved to Minnesota and became interested again in learning about my own faith. As I was attending a class at another church, I was given the opportunity to learn about the LDS Church from a friend in…
