As a Mormon, and proud of my heritage and the gospel, religion provides me with a stable moral compass to live by. In encompasses civility, honor, humility, confidence, and the knowledge of who I am, why I am here, and where I will go when I die. Here are some great links to some doctrinal books that help further someones knowledge.
It is important that if someone is investigating The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that they read The Book of Mormon first; to receive a foundation of the basics, receive a testimony of the book and Joseph Smith, receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost through baptism in to the LDS church, then, and only then, will the doors of heaven reveal themselves to you. “Knock and it shall be opened unto you”. There is argument that a conscience or Spirt of the Lord helps to reveal the truth of all things, only through The Gift of the Holy Ghost in it’s completeness can yield a wider breadth of knowledge and understanding.
