Hi! I'm Erin. I'm 25. And I'm a single mom. Growing up I guess I
could consider myself goth....now I've become more punk then
anything. I have short hair (except I have bangs, dyed red). So I
definately get...stares, at church. I'm not a member yet but will be
baptised soon. Hopefully. My background, spiritually speaking, is
all over the place so I'll try and keep it short as possible. I was
raised Mormon....7th generation. At 18 I left offically and quickly
got into the occult (wicca, then paganism, and ultimately
satanism). When my daughter was born I questioned about God. By
that time I had lost all my faith in anything and was atheist (most
modern satanists ARE atheist anyway so) Anywho, I church shopped and
hopped around alot. Mostly to pentecostal churches at first. I got
baptised in a pentecostal church, and the rebaptised "In Jesus'
Name" in an Apostolic Pentecostal church. That church messed up my
head (no jewelry, no makeup, skirts only, etc). Then I finally got
the courage to leave it and was hopping around again. My parents
pray for their children to listen to the gospel...every night. Last
night I just....started rereading the BoM, again (my 3rd time all
the way through this year). Just holding it I felt like I was on my
way home...and I'd be gone far too long. Like the parable of the
lost son. Yup...that's me. Anyway, that's about it...thanks for
letting me share.

Hey, I'm Erin, too!

Wow, what a story! Glad for you that you have found some kind of solace. I know that must've been a long, hard road. I'm not going to pretend to "undertsand" or say "I know what it's like" because, I honestly don't; it just makes me feel really good for others when I see them find themselves again. I hope it brings you great peace and joy as you get your life the way you want it. Just know (how cliché, I know) *you're nooooooot alone* and you will always have somewhere to turn.
