Not sure what to expect

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm in need of some advice. In the past few months I have struggled with a few things concerning morality. My boyfriend and I had done somethings that I know we shouldn't have, and I've been dealing with working up the courage to set up an appointment with my bishop knowing it was something that I needed to meet with him, which I have finally done. We've since broken up and have stopped engaging ourselves in actions of sexual sin but I'm feeling a little anxious about what's going to happen. Up until this point I've never felt the need to confess any of my minor sins to a bishop. I've gone through the repentance process on my own previously but I know this time seeing him will be necessary. Can anyone give me any idea of what to expect? How much detail will I need to tell him? How severe will my disciplinary action be? Any words of advice?

A lot of this is up to the bishop. But the Bishop is there to help you repent. Tell him all he needs to know. There could be some disciplinary action but again that is up to the bishop.

The point of confessing To the Lord or to the Bishop is to show a change of heart.

My bishop did not ask for any details of my indiscretions. He was more interested in making sure I repented properly. He has a lot of advice and there is probably nothing he hasn't heard before, so do not have anxiety over it.
