I am new to the site but not so new to the religion. I attended the LDS church when I was a child with my grandma and mom but when my grandma passed away when I was 13 I lost faith and fell out of the religion. Since becoming a newly single mom to a 2 year old little boy, I found that I was needing more for my son and I. Upon visiting many different churches in the past year and none of them feeling "right". I decided one night when the missionaries came to visit to give them a listen. After many lessons with them and attending church, I have found that this feels right to me and I feel it would be great for my son as well.
I have made the decision to be baptized on July 27th. I have been preparing for that day and I am anxiously awaiting it.
I have come on here in order to get a better understanding of the religion and others peoples views on it. I have noticed that since making the conscious decision to become a part of the church my family and friends have poked fun at my decision. Is there any others out there that have had similar experiences with this and how did you deal with it?
