Recently going to church has been on my mind a lot. I have been a believer since I was a small child because my parents took me to church and explained it to me. Now that I have a child on the way I feel that I should do better and raise it in church like my parents did me. I also have been having these feeling before I got pregnant, it's just now they are stronger. I guess you could say I have been 'lukewarm' for a while, and I know that is not good.
I chose a church that my brother-in-law and his wife go to. I've visited there a couple of times and really enjoyed it. I like the way the pastor presents his message and I enjoy hearing them sing. They don't sing what most churches around here sing, which is the older gospel music. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just not for me. I can't say that I've ever liked it. My mom and dad love it and I remember as a child closing my door and turning up my t.v. to block it out. It sounds so 'twangy', like bad country music.
This church also seems to be active, and has a lot of activities if you choose to take part in them. Once I have my child I would like to join MOPS (Mothers of preschoolers). My sister-in-law goes and enjoys it, so I think I would give it a try.
I'd like to buy a new Bible, one that doesn't have all the thee's and thou's in it. I guess I will have to go to a Bible Bookstore and ask someone who works there to help me. It would be no use asking my parents, if it's not the New King James Version you are just wasting your time. lol
Well, keep me in your prayers that I keep this up. I really want to do better. :)
