A year ago I was in a relationship (I was 16 at the time) and I stopped going to church because of my ex. My life spiraled and I ended up breaking the Law of Chastity with him. We broke up and I have turned my life around since (A year later. I am 17 now). I have prayed and asked for forgiveness and received the answer of spending more time with family, read my scriptures and reconnecting with a really close friend who encourages me to go back to church. I have done all of those things. I still feel like I need to go to my Bishop but I am terrified to! I don’t want to lose my membership and I have been told so many wrong things about the repentance process and I am so confused. The church matters so much to me and I want to go to the Temple again. I fear that what I did will prevent me from marrying in the temple and having my family sealed. Can someone please explain what they’re process was (like how long you had to stop taking the sacrament, how long it took you to go back to the temple etc.) I have searched countless web pages and found NOTHING that has helped. I am willing to accept any advice I get. I just need help.
