I’m still unsure on whether to believe in religion or not, and actually which religions best for me, but I recently learned a bit more on the Mormon groups, and it’s pretty interesting. However, I don’t actually know that much on how Mormons live like on a day to day basis, so could you please provide any information on this, or websites or places I could go to find out more? If I was to join a group, then it would be later on in life. Thanks

Hi friend. I’m happy you’re interested in religion in general and “Mormonism” in particular. This church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has been such a tremendous blessing in my life. Religion is humanity’s ultimate and most intimate expression. It’s beautiful in the same way that art, literature, dance, and music are beautiful, except it’s more profound and has even greater power to mold and shape our character. If extraterrestrials were to visit our planet tomorrow, it is certainly our religions that they would find most interesting, and it is through our religions that they would best be able to discover our most inner, diving questions. It’s religion that seeks to answer questions like “What is the purpose of my life?” “Where did I come from?” “How can I find peace?” These are the very questions that define us as human beings. And these blessings are independent of the even more important theological benefits of religion that lead to salvation, grace, and spiritual enlightenment. Each person must decide his own path, but I personally would never delay religious participation. The blessings of that participation could transform your life for the better now.

There are many websites that can help you better understand Mormon thought and lifestyle. Mormon.org is one that comes immediately to mind. Perusing the questions and content posted on this site could also be helpful. This page about Mormons in the news could also help you get a feel for how we live. Much (but not all) of what is posted on blogs like Times and Seasons is also representative of how Mormons think and live.

I hope this answer helps. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to post them here. I’m happy to help. You may wish also to chat with Mormon missionaries if you’d like additional information. Best of luck to you.
