Repentance is the second principle of the gospel. Wen we love and have faith in Christ, we are lead to repent., or to change are ways and desires. When we repent, we fell godly sorrow for what we did. Then we confess to the Lord of are sins. One of the best ways for me to remember the repentance proses is the A,B,C,D,& F of repenting.
First one A is Admit you did something wrong
Second; B is Be sorry
Third; C is confess
Forth; D is Don't do it again
the last on F is Forgive yourself or others.
As we follow this proses we will be forgiven of are sins, if we ask with faith and act upon it. And dont do it again. As we are forgiving of are sins are guilt will be gone and we will fell closer to the Savior. We will also feel the influence of the spirit stronger.

Having faith in Jesus Christ means that we accept His Atonement and His teachings.In Alma 32:21 (in The Book Of Mormon). Alma says "Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." So we don't need to know all things to believe in him. For if we saw and know all things then we wouldn't never grow.
Faith is like a seed. You might ask why. For a seed needs water and nourishing in order to grow. Like the seed, we need to nourish our faith for it to grow. You might also ask how can we make it grow. Here is what you can do. Read your scriptures, pray, follow his commandments,etc. There is a lot of ways to make your faith grow. I know that faith is what we need to have in order to be forgiving of are sins. For Christ has made the way for us. All we need to do is trust in him and love him. Pray always to him and your faith will grow, just like the seed.
