What is a testimony?? Its what you know to be true! Thats it! Do you know that chocolate cake is delicious? Then you have a testimony of it! Do you know that basketball is the greatest sport ever? Then you have a testimony of that as well!

All of the experiences we have can make our testimonies grow. If we go to church, and it makes us happy, then we have a testimony that church is awesome! Because you know it makes you happy it becomes part of your testimony! Cool huh?

There's great power that can be found when we bear our testimony. Alma chapter 4 talks about the prophet Alma going out to teach the gospel to the wicked people. Verse 19 says:

"19 And this he did that he himself might go forth among his people, or among the people of Nephi, that he might preach the word of God unto them, to stir them up in remembrance of their duty, and that he might pull down, by the word of God, all the pride and craftiness and all the contentions which were among his people, seeing no way that he might reclaim them save it were in bearing down in pure testimony against them."

Its by pure testimony that Alma was able to teach these people. Alma was a great prophet, and all he had was bearing testimony! He was able to bring thousands unto Christ through his testimony.

We all have a testimony just like Alma. We may not be a prophet called by God to preach the gospel, but our testimonies can be just as powerful. Who can tell you what you don't know for yourself? There is no way that anybody can deny a "pure testimony". That is something we have for ourselves; that we can constantly rely on to keep us strong and help us bring others closer to Jesus Christ. I know that as we share our testimony with others, we can bless the lives of everyone around us. Every time we share our testimony, it becomes a little bit stronger. I invite everyone to share their testimony with those around you.
