Why I chose to be a Latter-day Saint: And not a Mormon // Reblog

I am just so impressed with this dear woman’s thoughts.  She speaks of why she became a Latter Saint and why she is not a Mormon, persay.  Being a “Mormon” involves cultural aspects.

I can relate to these thoughts because I had the same experiences when I first went to the Mennonite church.  Then I let the culture overtake me and I forgot why I came and why I stayed in the first place: to serve God.

Her experiences and feeling mimic the ones I had and it encourages me to know I am not the only one to go through this type of experience.  It also reminds me that I need to follow the Lord above all else and that if I do, He will bless me beyond measure.

One thought though, in the culture there are expectations that, if not met, will lead others to believe I am spiritually ailing and possibly cause problems.  How do we overcome these things?  Am I just not trusting God enough in these instances?
