Re: I thought I would teach Gospel Doctrine, when suddenly...

I was called to be a ward missionary + Gospel Principles teacher.

Hello, my name is Longbottom...

The most serious faith crisis of my life began a few months ago. I have no problem with church doctrine or historical issues, fine with JS, fine with Book of Abraham, fine with just about everything. Except that I couldn't stand God and "His ways" (It's a long story. I had serious father issues grow...
