MIE (Mormon Impressions & Experiences)Web Page

Iím not sure this is a good idea but I wanted to post some of my feelings on the internet in the hope that I might get some insights from other people. I am 35 years old and have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints all my life. Lately I have had a hard time attending church. This web page is a way for me to express my feelings in a fairly anonymous fashion. I guess I am having a crisis of faith in some ways. I feel like I have been faithful but I donít feel very happy attending church. I always find ways of feeling guilty and I canít help but blame the church even though that is probably not the proper thing to do. I will list on this page selected journal entries, favorite quotes and things I like and dislike about being a member of this church. The site is a work in progress of course. My writings may not make total sense to one not familiar with the church, itís teachings and culture. However, my target audience is fellow members who may have suggestions. However, if you are not a member of the church feel free to e-mail me with any questions.

Questions I am studying:
May I pray to Christ? How can prayer help me develop a relationship with Christ??

Why was the issue of the origin of God skirted in recent interviews by President Hinckley?

Why doesn't the 2nd article of faith relate to the Priesthood being given to all worthy males? updated 10May03

Missionary Journal (Future project: I will be entering my missionary journal here as a way for me to look back on my testimony and experiences as a missionary. I will replace the names of individuals to protect their privacy, but other than that I will type in everything as I wrote it during my mission from 1987-1989).
