So last night I watched The Mormons, a documentary on the LDS church that has been playing almost daily on PBS. From the way everyone was talking, I thought it would be pretty anti-mormon.

However, in my opinion, it was pretty tame. Maybe it was all the anti-mormon literature I went through before deciding to convert, but I thought that it put my religion in a better light than it has been in the past.

Anyhow, funny thing: It was weird seeing pictures of Joseph Smith and the other prophets on national TV. Since I hear and read about them all the time in a non-public setting, it felt like my friends were on TV. “Like OMG it’s President Kimball!”




For those of you who don’t know me, or hadn’t heard the news, I recently converted into the Church of Latter-Day Saints.

There are a few who have expressed their skepticism towards my sudden religious conversion — especially since only a few months before, I was struggling with the matter of religion in general.


There’s a certain stigma about the Mormon church. I’ve heard interesting stories from the other members of the church about the types of things people have misconstrued about them because of their faith.

My own brother, an Episcopalian priest, tried to persuade against my baptism, calling the church a ‘cult’ and sending me anti-Mormon literature. (What’s interesting is that I had already read all of those pages before deciding to convert… Ah, good ole google and wikipedia.)


There’s not much that I can say towards the skepticism or towards the people who have strange ideas about what the LDS church is like, but I can assure you that I do believe in the church. Not to say that I don’t have questions from time to time, or that I know everything there is to know about it.

All I know is that when I’m there, it feels right. When I pray, it feels right. When I learn about the teachings of the prophets, it feels right. More so than with any other form of organized religion I’ve encountered.

At the end of the day, what more can I rely upon when it comes to spiritual reasoning?
