Good evening. I’m very happy to be able to contact you. I would like to enrich my spiritual life, and I’ve heard good things about your church. Can you tell me what I need to do to join? Thanks!

Hi Miriam. I'm very happy to hear that you're interested in joining my church! So many people in the world today are not interested in their own spiritual development. They seem to care much more about temporary pleasures and entertainment. It's wonderful to communicate with people like you who are proactive in their search for personal spiritual improvement. You recognize what you need in your life, and you're actively searching for a faith community that can help you. I think that is excellent.

As I tell many people who write me, the church has been a great blessing in my life. Spiritual enrichment is a life-long journey. We will never "arrive" at our destination in this mortal life because there is always more we can learn. There is always room for improvement. I'm very happy to be on this life-long journey of discipleship. The changes and growth I've experienced have brought me a lot of joy thus far in my life, and I'm even more excited about future changes that will come through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ and His restored gospel truly have the power to transform lives.

To become a member of the church, the first step is to learn more about Christ's teachings and the Mormon lifestyle. Fortunately, there are over 50,000 volunteer Mormon missionaries to teach people about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm sure they would love to talk to you! You can request a visit from the Mormon missionaries online. Another important step is to visit a Mormon chapel to see what our worship services are like. You can also find the address of the Mormon chapel nearest your house online. When you visit the church for the first time, talk with one of the leaders of the congregation or the missionaries. Tell them that you're very interested in the church and that you want to get to know us better. Perhaps they could point out some friendly members who could sit with you to make you comfortable and to help you understand our practices.

I recently wrote an article entitled "How can I Join the Church?" that describes in greater detail the steps needed for conversion.

God bless you, Miriam, as you learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ.
