Welcome Brother

I know that I haven't posted much lately, and there has been a lot that has gone one over the last few months. I don't want to go into too much detail, but I would like to point out a few of the biggest events.

My brother got married and I spoke to my other brother about the church after a few comments he made about why he wasn't going to the temple. We have been communicating a lot lately about our experiences and its amazing that we haven't spoken about religion at length up until now.

Let me tell you how nice and wonderful it is to have someone I respect and love be in the same boat as I. Brother, welcome. We shall continue our journey together.

Next, my wife and I have spoken a few times about religion and we continue down the path of determining what to do now. We have decided that we will go to church for social reasons. We would like our daughters to have friends, even if they are members, and church certainly does provide for that opportunity for those who live close by. I will fight off the indoctrination the best I can and teach my daughters to be good people and think for themselves despite religion. I continue to be amazed at my wife and how she is dealing with all of this. It seems that it might have been a shorter jump for her than it was for me. I'm glad that my faithlessness isn't wrecking our family and I owe it to her for being so understanding and cooperative. My love for her grows the more we talk and the more we improve together.

So, I'll post again when it feels right. In the meantime, may the spaghetti be with you.
