I am investigating the LDS church and just begun reading The Book of Mormon. I'm female and in my mid 20's. I did go to one Sunday church meeting and discovered a lot of emphasis on women and having a family with children. I personally don't want any kids in my lifetime. I've always held that position for a very long time. Even though I have a boyfriend for 4 years already. He respects my choice. Would I get shunned or not be a worthy member if I do get baptized in the future and not want a family with children? Thank you. This is my main concern.
I'm female in my mid-20's. I've been seeking a religion that feels right to me. It would have to truly speak to my soul in a way that won't let me tear myself away from it. I've "tried out" other religions in the past namely: Catholicism, Bible believing Christianity, Seventh Day Adventists, Judaism, Hare Krishna, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, etc. I have received a Book of Mormon 1 year ago from a friend that wasn't part of the LDS, but knew I was seeking religion. I didn't quite read it until now. I just begun reading it yesterday and wow, it is very readable. It pulls me in. I went to a LDS church service not to long ago and it felt very nice, although the members put a lot of emphasis on family and children. I don't want any children in my lifetime. My boyfriend of 4 years understands this and respects my decision. I'm going to be reading The Book of Mormon until I finish it. I really enjoy it so far. (I'm still in 1 Nephi)
