I remember before I joined the Church, how I firmly believed that God spoke to man. I felt that God would have someone He spoke to on the earth. I just knew it had to be. I was very disappointed to find that none of the churches I knew about claimed to speak to God, then I learned about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
They had a prophet. I listened when he spoke. I had never before felt such peace or assurance that what someone was saying was right. His words were so clear and concise.
I felt strongly that what he was saying was from God; that he was truly a prophet.
