  1. I want to thank everybody for their advice. It really helped as there were multiple times I caught myself trying to justify not going to church, but everybody's advice helped get me past that. I did end up going back today, and it went great. Like many of you said I would be. I was welcomed back. I have no doubt in my mind that I will be going back next week and beyond. Again, thank you all for your help.
  2. Hello everybody. I would like to ask for advice on becoming active again. I have been inactive for 12 years now. I became inactive shortly after joining when I was 16-17. For the last couple of years I have wanted to come back, I have prayed about it for years and I know that this is what I want and need in my life. The reasons I have avoided going back in the past is that I didn't feel worthy, I had issues with a coffee addiction and I had sex outside of marriage (Both issues are gone now, and will stay that way.) The other reason is that I am worried about feeling out of place for several reasons: being 29 and single, and I know absolutely no one in my ward. I can't go with family as none of them are members, and none of my friends are members or live nearby. Please, any advice on the situation would be appreciated. Is there anything I should/need to do when I go back to church this coming Sunday? Or before then? Especially considering that I have been inactive so long.
