I can`t start a new thread either
I am from UK and was baptised into C of E as a baby as is the norm here.
I have never really clicked with that church but have always felt like I needed to find the right way to be closer to God.
I have a child who is autistic and it takes a lot of faith to keep going at times.
Over the last few months I have been drawn to look at Mormon info and straight away felt really at home with it all. I didnt drink alcohol or smoke anyway and have stuck to the Word of Wisdom over the last few months by giving up coffee and tea.
I am reading the Book of Mormon and have the leaflets from LDS online which are the same ones the missionaries use and I am going through them.
The difficulty I have is that I dont really know how to take it further or even if I can?
I have Aspergers which is a milder form of the Autism my son has......as a result of this things like going to church, giving testimonies, even talking to the missionaries would be excruciating for me so I have been avoiding it.
I know I cant be baptised without all that so have been wondering about just living my life this way without actually taking that step if that makes sense.....is that enough? or do I have to go through the baptism to practise as a Mormon.
As I said i am living my life the Mormon way by reading and learning from the scriptures, keeping to the Word of Wisdom, praying, and I am even trying to introduce Family Home Evening.
My husband is catholic but he respects other religions and has no problem with me going down the mormon route.
I really feel like God is showing me how to be a Mormon and wanting me to do it but my difficulties are putting constraints on it.
