This morning I went to www.lds.org just to see what was on there, and wow! Front and center, there was a link to the general conference talk, "Returning to Faith" by Rosemary M. Wixom, the Primary General President. The link had a picture of a sad-looking middle-class white lady in her thirties, which is pretty much an accurate representative sample of Mormons who lose their faith these days, and the lady was sitting alone in her room, gazing towards a window. And the picture has a caption that says, "Afraid You're Losing Your Faith? Focus on What You Know." I feel for this lady! Ha! I know she's just a model, but if she was a real person, I would probably say something like, "You don't need to sit alone in your house and look longingly through windows, agonizing about anachronisms in the Book of Mormon! Just don your Pioneer Day garb and bake whole wheat bread!"
Anyway... you should go read this talk. It's great.
Sister Wixom is the sixty-fourth reason to stay LDS!
Oh and by the way, I just had another baby. Well, my wife had the baby. LOL. So now I've got three daughters, and my life is kind of busy and blah blah blah, so, I have not written as much on here as I'd like, but I want you to know that I'm still around. I still have faith in Jesus Christ and I believe that the LDS Church is a good Christian Church. As crazy as it sounds, I believe I have been divinely inspired to stay LDS.
I was a young men's secretary for about a year or two, but about two months ago I got released from that and now I teach a Primary class. It's a great calling and I'm excited to show the love of God to the little ones in my class each and every Sunday.
