I Knew That I Was Home

By Chad W. Nordland

I will briefly explain how I was introduced to the Church. It was my Junior year in High School and I was really confused in my Math class. The reason was because I slept a lot and didn't pay attention.

One day my teacher, Ms. Stewart, moved me to the other side of the classroom. She wanted to change some things up in the classroom. I really didn't care too much I was always asleep anyways.

One day for some reason I decided to stay awake and do my work, but I encountered a math problem I didn't know how to solve. So I asked the person sitting in front of me if she could help me.

I had no idea who she was but I figured she could help. Her name was Lauren Keith by the way. Well she helped me catch up on all my back work. I found it would be easier for me to stay awake than to sleep in this class from now on.

One thing that I noticed about her a couple of weeks later is how she talked and acted. I never heard her swear or talk down to other people in class. I can't remember how we got on the topic of religion, but when she talked about it seemed to make since.

On the last day of the week she asked me if I would like to come out to Church. I, of course, said yes. When Sunday rolled around and I came to the Church for the first time about an hour early.

I felt something that I don't believe that I had felt in a long time. I knew I was home. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me that I was in the right place. Now I know why I came so early I believe I just had to sit there and adjust.

After awhile Lauren came and looked at me and said: "You came." We went to the sacrament meeting and I really liked it a lot. The Church had kids singing in the middle of the service and that really touched me a lot. It was a really spiritual meeting.

One thing that appealed to me about the Church was the member who invited me out to the Church. I might have not joined the Church till years later if Lauren would not have opened her mouth and talked to me about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I had a religious background, before I came to this church I was Pentecostal. The feelings that I have felt in the Pentecostal Church are different than what I feel in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Like I said before I know that I am home now. I wrote this Conversion Story four years from the first day I came to the Church.

I bear record that I know that the principles of the Gospel are true. I've been blessed for following the advice of the prophet's and for serving the Lord. I know that a Prophet of God guides us.

My testimony was really weak for many years, which was because I was too lazy to study. It's really easy for me to read and know the doctrine, but I want to apply it and teach others about the life of Christ.

I have a testimony, and I know that this is Christ's Church built upon a foundation of prophets and apostles with Jesus Christ himself being that Chief corner stone. I bear record that this is the only true church. I joined the church eight years ago and served a faithful mission in Kentucky and now an author of two books.
