CHRISTY JERDON'S PERSONAL STORY
Don't Worry, Be Happy!
One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss says: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." So here is my personal journey to the real truth.
How could this be the real truth? I was taught that it could only come through a true prophet of God. As I searched and studied, I remembered reading about prophets of old who did not belong to the church whose job was to call the people to repentance. So if the Book of Mormon was written for our day, then why couldn't this be the "real" Sealed Portion. I had noticed history repeating itself in the church. I had to read this for myself. On August 16, 2008, I began reading The Sealed Portion and my life was transformed. I knew it was true and I couldn't deny it.
After several months of pondering and reading, I decided to have my name removed from the membership records of the church. I no longer needed a religion to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel is very simple that even a child can understand it. The gospel consists of two simple commandments which are; "Love thy neighbor as thyself, even thy enemies." and "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It's that simple! Wow! I have finally been set free and am happier than I have ever been! :-) I can now truly be who I am and say what I feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.
