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?

I am not religious. I do not believe that organized religion is the best way to go – for some people. However, I do know people that are good people because they have faith in something beyond themselves, and for that, I have the utmost respect for them. If I were to name certain religions as ones that I agree with more, I would certainly name Mormons at the top. They have a sense of family and togetherness that other religions only pretend to have. I say good for you. What is important is what makes you feel good, and what feels right. If your decision hurts no one else (really), then why should it be wrong? If it makes you a better person, and more aware of the people around you, then it is a brilliant choice. Good for you.

I heard it best and simplest from this book I read on organization. To paraphrase, finding a religion is like finding home, a home for your spirit. I’m glad you found one.

So, far, the closest I’ve come is the spiritual thoughts of Einstein, not a religious man, but a spiritual one, though I hope and trust I find a place to rest my soul someday myself. I pray your spirit levels up several times from here on and inspires others to seek their own depth of experience in whatever creed they follow.
