Hi my name is Casey
I havent lost faith in the church but ive lost faith in some of the people within the church. I hate being lied to, promised false things and being left to do it all on my own when I truly needed help.
Sorry and god bless.
(Update 7/22) I just got ordained into the priesthood.....wow, this sure has been a very quick road ive been on. He is talking about getting my temple recommend and getting me into the temple for teaching before a year. He said he feels a strong presence of the holy spirit in me!!!!
I wanna think im a good listener, a caring man, and a giving individual. Recently ive taken a hard hit in life which brought me on the path to the church.....1Nephi 2:19 hits me spit on. Ive been working hard on becoming a better person and the kind of man i need to be. I was recently baptized and confirmed with the church. Im by no means perfect but im trying really hard to better my life. I dont have much on the way of friends and family locally. I moved from California for a fresh new start and have been give a crash corce in doing so. I would really just like to get to know someone. Have a friend to talk to at least. Maybe someone to show me around, do simple activities, work out with, go hiking .......just need a good friend and we'll see where it goes from there...... :-)
Ill admit, im not that great of social person i guess you can say. I really live a sheltered life. I dont go out much at all. I tend to keep too myself mostly cause ive been hurt a lot in my life. I thought i could do this alone but i need an understanding person to be a good friend. Someone to be there to talk to. Someone to listen to me without judgement. I hate being "alone" in life. I know im not but it sure feels that way. Ive found myself "drifting"away a bit from what I know is true. This lonely abyss is a strong vaccum that has worn me down.
