I need to give credit to the person whom I got this blog idea from: my friend Krista Gillingham Rea. She too, is a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and played a big part in my conversion. She called me one day and asked to get my permission to let her write about some of the experiences of my conversion from her point of view on her "Spiritually Speaking" blog. I told her, "Sure." This got me thinking... Maybe I should do the same thing before I forget all the details of my conversion. It's been 24 years ago that I was baptized, so I am sure I have forgotten some of the details. I read Krista's blog "Spiritually Speaking" and was inspired to create my own account of my journey in becoming a member of the LDS church and the journey it continues to take me on.

P.S. I have to put weird dates on these posts in order to get them to stay in the order that I want them to be in.


  1. I'm so glad you are doing this. I have to admit I was secretly hoping you would! I've once again gotten busy with visitors, life, etc. and I'm still looking for one journal. Let me know if you need any details. I'll refer people to your blog for more about you!

  2. This is awesome Deanna!!! I am trying to get Kelly to read it, his story is pretty similiar to your story. You 2 are pioneers in your family!

    We still need to get together and discuss family history!

  3. Anxiously awaiting to hear the rest of your story!
