How can we be more personable?
6 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith. (Book of Mormon, Ether, Chapter 12)
Talk about who we are and why we have a testimony.
even so will I, the Lord, reason with you that you may understand.
13 Wherefore, I the Lord ask you this question—unto what were ye ordained?
14 To preach my gospel by the Spirit, even the Comforter which was sent forth to teach the truth.
15 And then received ye spirits which ye could not understand, and received them to be of God; and in this are ye justified?
16 Behold ye shall answer this question yourselves; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto you; he that is weak among you hereafter shall be made strong.
17 Verily I say unto you, he that is ordained of me and sent forth to preach the word of truth by the Comforter, in the Spirit of truth, doth he preach it by the Spirit of truth or some other way?
18 And if it be by some other way it is not of God.
19 And again, he that receiveth the word of truth, doth he receive it by the Spirit of truth or some other way?
20 If it be some other way it is not of God.
21 Therefore, why is it that ye cannot understand and know, that he that receiveth the word by the Spirit of truth receiveth it as it is preached by the Spirit of truth?
22 Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together. (Doctrine and Covenants, Doctrine and Covenants, Section 50)
The gospel is simple. We need to show how simple it is through how we feel. How can we share a true but confidence testimony? Focus on what we know. Ask them to come to church but tell them "why." The blessings that that come from why we come to church.
Apply the principles will build testimony
"Regarding one's testimony remember, that which one willingly shares he keeps, while that which he selfishly keeps he loses...Teach and testify. There is no better combination."
We need to be the message that we share. Be the example. The gospel is good news, then be the good news.
