I didn't know you were Mormon. I left the church at 17, but did baptisms for the dead too.

Yes, I'm one of those evil converts :). I had to go to your userinfo page and see who you were, didn't know you changed your name, but glad to hear from you again. I'm glad you did what you felt was the best in leaving the church. I had to make tough decisions as it came to religion in my life, and as I went through this whole process, I bacame so glad that I live in the country that I do, and that I am free to worship God in the way I choose. Thanks for continuing to read my entries. I hope they're not too boring for you. I continue to enjoy your entries. Oh yeah, glad you're still reading the Bible and are continuing to be spiritual. Many that leave the church abandon religion completely, and I think that's a pretty big mistake. All the best to you, and thanks so much for respecting my beliefs and commenting :).

I always wonder if my old LJ friends will wonder who the heck I am after I changed my username from Craptalker. Ha Ha! I think I confused a few people.

I've been on quite the spiritual journey, but I am very very happy now and have never felt so close to Christ as I have in the past couple of years. My Mom converted to Mormonism through a couple of missionaries when I was really young and then converted all of us, so I grew up in it. After a lot of research, I had to leave Mormonism because of the theology of it and I learned a lot of things that frankly scared me, but Mormons are still some of the nicest people I know and I also know that their hearts are into it and their faith is very real. After I left the LDS church, I was lost and considered myself Agnostic for about 13 years until I met Jesus again 2 years ago and allowed Him to really work in my life (although I'm still a total mess and a major work in progress). It's amazing how absolutely empty life is without Him and how much more secure, centered, loving and free you are when God's the center of it. Now I'm actually teaching our youth group a couple of times a month and involved in a Christian church that makes me feel whole and free to be myself. Even the Bible took on a whole new meaning when your heart is in the right place. And, I'm sure you were really wanting to know my whole spiritual background...ha ha....but there you have it. =)
