Re: Greetings!

Hi Jim, Welcome back! I returned to church activity a little over a year ago after close to 40 years of inactivity. It took me about a year of thinking and praying about it before I went to church the first time. I got great support and advice here. When I did finally go, it just felt right and like...

Re: I went to church yesterday

Thanks to all for being so supportive and interested in my story. I thought you may be interested in a followup. I am still attending church every week. My ward has been friendly, but not intrusive. On my 3rd Sunday there was no one to play piano for RS, so I volunteered. I told the RS pres that I w...

Re: I went to church yesterday

I was surprised to find how much I felt at home there. I guess I was really ready to come back.

F&T meeting is a great chance to get a little peek into other people's lives, thoughts and opinions. I have my kindle too, but probably won't need to get it out for a month or two.

I went to church yesterday

Well, I went ahead and attended church yesterday. It went fine and I enjoyed myself. As I mentioned in my previous post, it has been about 20 years and I have never been to my ward here before. I got to church about 5 minutes before the starting time and they had already started giving the announcem...

Re: I Came Out To My Wife

Shawn, I don't have anything more to add to the excellent advice posted already. I just wanted to say that I feel for you and your family as you go through this change. I am sure it is tough on both you and your wife and maybe confusing for your children. I hope for you all to come to a place of pea...

Re: Need some advice on returning to church

Wow, lots of great comments and support and lots to think about! I really like the idea of reaching out to the Relief Society President. I don't know why I didn't think of it myself. I'm a pretty low key person, so it would be preferable to me if no fuss, or notice is made. Also, I'm not planning to...

Need some advice on returning to church

It has been more then 20 years since I last attended church except for the funerals of my parents. I've been thinking about coming back to church for a couple of years now and it just feels kind of awkward. I have never attended the ward where I have lived for the past 10 years and when I moved here...

Re: Thinking about coming back to church

Thanks so much for the welcoming comments. I truly appreciate it.
I'm not really looking for answers at this time of my life, just a community to belong to and contribute to in some small way.
I guess reaching out here is the first step.
