I was raised without religion and by age 15 had hit the “is this all there is” stage. I began to visit various churches with friends, and although I enjoyed them all, it was when I crossed the threshold of a chapel of The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints that I had an overwhelming spiritual experience telling me this was the place. I then read the Book of Mormon and was certain it was true by the first verse. Many decades later, I still read it once or twice a year and find it ever new, the most wonderful book on earth.
