    How I Became a Member

    Hello there. I have been a member of the church for almost 10 years. This august it will be 10 years. I became a member when I was 12 years old. My mom and dad were baptized members when they were 8 but had fallen away. But one thing is that each time we would move they would...

    No Tolerance For Homosexuality: How The Lord Sees It Vs. The Church

    This is why the church needs to let members keep their baptism and memberships records once they are excommunicated. This is why the only baptisms we should annul are those who ask for them to be annulled. This is why those people who commit serious sins must have their records...

    Still Learning....

    I've been a member of this church since I was 13. Which means it'll be 10 years in April. Wow...see to me that seems like a pretty long time. I've kind of been back and forth with this whole thing. I was a very active, faithful member for a little over a year after I was...

    Agency - a Clear Sign of Certainty

     I watched an interesting film today and in it, a boy is practically forced into a religion he loathes. How can a religion be true when they have to force their members to be members? I love the thought of agency that we are given by Heavenly Father. To me it only enforces...

    I Hate Visiting Teaching

    Am I the only one? I understand it works for some people and they really get into it and think it's grand. But I don't at all. I see no use for it in my life at all. Maybe because I'm not a typical LDS???? I got handed a paper and told to be a VT. I don't even know these women...

    Why Mormons Go On Missions

    The whole point of sharing the gospel is to go around and turn that frown upside down! I think of John 8:31-32 where it basically says, "My people shall know the truth, and the truth shall set them free." So then why not share it? We Mormons are delighted to have the truth in our...

    My Testimony On Being A Member Of The Church

    Mormons Judge Way Too Much

    common Utah Mormon tendencies. I drink tea because it is no different than the caffeinated soda that people suck down everyday. Sometimes I don't feel like going to church so I don't. Occasionally I shop on Sundays and none of this makes me a bad member. I don't feel guilt when...

    For Those Who Aren'T Members, Don'T Beleive, Or Want To Know.

    Faith is things which are hoped for but not seen...No man can know if its true until he has faith. So, the only thing I can tell you is to pray about it. If not, I promise you will be missing great happiness. Take it from me, a convert. I've seen both sides.
