I know for myself that living the principles taught in the Book of Mormon has blessed my life with security, love, and peace that I would never otherwise have obtained. I know the Book of Mormon is true in so many ways. How it can flip my mood for the day by reading it, how I have received answers to prayers by opening its pages, how I have felt the confirming Spirit of the Lord witness to me of its truthfulness while reading the powerful introduction. The Book of Mormon is true and Jesus Christ truly was at the head of the writing, abridgment, and translation of this book. “But behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart. Look unto God with firmness of mind, and pray unto him with exceeding faith, and he will console you in your afflictions, and he will plead your cause, and send down justice upon those who seek your destruction” – Jacob 3:1. I believe we will see that the Book of Mormon will stand the weathering of time. No unhallowed hand will stop the gospel from spreading through this book, nor the love of God, from reaching the hearts of men and women all over the world, through it.
