Well, I just finished the Book of Mormon for the first time. I really loved the book of Moroni, it explained a lot of what I had experienced in the Ward. It also touched on faith, which helped a lot.
I remain hopeful, and plan to keep with it. My problem area is doubt, but that comes from my own pride and unease of just letting go and letting the spirit guide me. But, here I do have faith that I can over come this obstacle, with a little practice.
I still remember the first time the missionaries had me read Moroni 10:4, and I did pray as according to the verse. The sensation of love and peace was overwhelming. That memory, along with wanting to be a better person brought me back to investigating the scripture further.
It would be great to go back to the Ward on Sunday, but I don't think I am quite ready yet. I want a real testimony before I go back. Otherwise, I feel out of place when talking to other members. That, and I don't have any nice clothes
I want to thank you all for your support, it helped a lot. As did browsing the forums, and reading a bit here and there. I've got further to go yet, but I feel much closer to having a testimony than I have for years. So, now do you think would be a good time to read the Doctrine and Covenants? I've been wondering if perhaps I should skip ahead to the POGP.
