My favorite Book of Mormon story is when Christ visits and teaches the people. I want to follow Christ’s commandment to not judge. The more I read about the Savior’s teachings, the more I feel His love and peace.

I know if I keep the commandments, I have the assurance and security of staying on the path that leads to God. I can always know that I did something right when I feel the Holy Ghost.
