17 years

17 years ago today I was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  It was a tender day, and one I will remember for the rest of my life.  I am still touched, all these years later, by the magnitude of friends and family who offered me support, service and love during my journey to becoming a Mormon.  They have no idea the impact they continue to have on my life today.
I'm not sure where I'd be without the gospel.  There is nothing in this world which could possibly replace the peace, happiness or hope it provides.  The greatest blessings I enjoy today stem from the decision I made 17 years ago, and I am eternally grateful.
