Twice Converted – Part 2 – Going Back to Church

The nerves are what I remember, how anxiety rioted through my stomach as I drove the twenty-minute drive to church. I was living in a different part of town than where I grew up, so I had to go to a completely different building. Lucky for me, most LDS churches are set up relatively the same.

I went to a Young Single Adults (YSA) ward in Portland and was promptly greeted by some bright-eyed missionaries when I walked into the chapel.

Part of me relished this new found idea of being alone – being on my own. I got to put things exactly where I wanted them, without needing permission. I could buy something for my apartment and not worry about if anyone else would like it. I ate exactly what I wanted. I binge-watched hours of The Office without complaint from anyone else. I found joy in sleeping sprawled across my bed.
