My adventure in becoming a [Good] Mormon

Archive for May, 2010

Answer (No, it’s not 42 =P)

I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that God really does answer. Even though this week alone I’ve received more answers to my questions than ever.

” And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen” 2 Nephi 31:21

Elder Johnson said last night at the fireside two things that were important to me. 1) If you have a question, look in the scriptures and  pray 2) The Gospel is exciting. I have to say I certainly agree now ^^

Stake conference=^^

So for my first stake conference, I think it was pretty awesome.  President Pace’s talk was very enjoyable…Then I kind of zoned out until Uchtdorf’s talk (Not my fault!…Ok, I was people watching…><.But there was an adorable kid like 2 rows ahead of me!). Uchtdorf is certainly an awesome guy to listen to (not only because of his accent!!) and I took a lot from his talk.

When religion invades my dreams…

So…According to my dream, you can walk to Connecticut if you have an invitation to tea with some wack-job doctor and only there can Mormons drink tea. Missionaries are also Elves….

Anyways, today is Stake conference. I have NO clue what that entails except that there is no YW’s and I’m sad about that. There is also a youth fireside tonight (once again, I have NO clue what you do there). I think I might go, not sure. Most likely though. It’ll be my first one!

Next weekend is…Stake youth conference? I think. But I have to go late to that, job interview at stampede with Madison(YUUUUS!!). Next Sunday is also the MS walk.

Scripture reading: Going good…Well..kinda. My routine is set and I read yesterday and will no doubt read today but the real test is during the week. Hopefully, it’ll go well, I shouldn’t be too busy to justify not doing it.

Last week of seminary ( D:) and 8 scripture masteries left. I think I can do it!

Mission President?

So I just got a letter from the Calgary Mission President. Fascinating…Does he normally write letters to new converts? He wants me to write back as to how I found out and joined the church…4 pages later XD…He asked for it!

But I once again procrastinated scripture study with writing this letter… I’ll make up for it friday before grad performance. Starting Saturday, I shall attempt to read regularly!

Oh Herro!

So…Second blog started, let’s see if I can regularly update this one.

In Young Women’s (YW’s) this past Sunday, we were encouraged to journal. So I decided I’d start this one because 1) This is an on-going experience I’d like to remember, even if I don’t stay with Mormonism (But that’s near impossible), it’ll be an extraordinary learning event thing. And 2)I seriously love the layout I chose, it’s pretty ^_^

So as far as how I’ll work this, I think I’ll try posting once a week (at least) on struggles I’m having adjusting to/learning about Mormonism and being a [good] Mormon.

Quick rant on the [good]. It’s there because, yeah sure, I got baptized, now I’m Mormon, but if I continued as I was before, I’m just a hypocrite. I don’t like hypocrites.  And, in my opinion, if it’s not applied to everyday life, I’m not it.  That goes for being a Trekkie too :D.

So…Current Struggle: There’s a few. The biggest one:  Procrastinating scripture study. I’m bad for procrastinating, especially when I have NO time to do it…Like now…

Solution: I’m thinking becoming nun-like for 1/2-1 hour a night will work. No music, nothing near me. Cass will sit in a corner and read.

Do Mormons have nuns/monks/something similar? Maybe I’ll check that out…

I’ll continue with my struggles later. I’m using this to procrastinate scripture study XD.
