Janel's note:  Below are some excerpts from a email  Elder Coffman sent that has some good advice for anyone who wants to strengthen their testimony.


"I guess you want to know something that can strengthen your testimony. well the best way is to read the Book of Mormon but to really read it and not just look at the letters if that makes sense. try and understand what it is and try to understand a certain theme. the theme could be something that is something that you are struggling with or something that you have always wanted to know. if you keep the commandments more, you´ll be able to feel the spirit stronger and you´ll be able to receive personal revelation."

"I know there are a lot of problems and hard stuff we go through but the gospel is the best thing for you."
