I Was Almost Baptised
I was almost baptised in the mormon church on January 10th, 2006. I grew up in Idaho, but my father hated Mormons and so did I. It wasn't until I joined the military and became really good friends with a Mormon couple that I began to understand the religion. In fact, I went through all the missionary meetings and LOVED IT. I had been to a lot of different churches, but was bored by all of them. That really bothered me, because I knew I believed in Christ as my savior, but I didn't feel a connection when I went to church.
Then I started learning about the LDS church and everything CLICKED. I knew in my heart, that I had found the one true Church. It called to me and I felt at home. Everything made sense after that and I wanted to be baptised.
The problem though, was my husband. He is from Northern Michigan where the first LDS church in his area formed only about 6 months ago, so he's never had any exposure to Mormons. But he is very against the Church and said he would divorce me if I became LDS.
Its been almost two years since my almost baptism, and I still get upset thinking about it. While my husband's attitude has calmed down, he is still against me becoming a member. As much as I want to do that, I dont' want it to destroy my marriage. I am hoping that if my husband attends church with me, he's feel the same calling that I did to the church.
I know one day I will be baptised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I just want that day to be, if not becoming a member at the same time as my husband, then at least with his blessing.
