Please know you are not alone. Thousands of us are experiencing the sorrow of having our children decide to leave the church. It broke our hearts when my son took this course, but we continue to pray for him and I know that the prayers of parents for their children are very powerful. I also pray for him when I attend the temple. I believe the Lord will keep calling after his children, and when I am sorrowful I can find some peace by trusting Him.

I was reminded again recently by a brother in his Sacrament meeting talk, that we are not here 'to fix' people but to love them and never give up hope.

I also experienced a crisis of faith, but I've found a way to reconstruct my beliefs and I'm once again a happy and active member of the Church. For anyone who is looking for additional support, please check out Uplift Community of Faith on Facebook.

This article could not have been more timely. Just yesterday in a phone conversation with my youngest daughter, she informed me that she never going back to church. Although she has been inactive for a while, she and her husband have allowed the missionaries to visit on occasion. The pain in my heart is excruciating, and the sorrow is deep. But I know the Lord is in charge and I have to depend on his timing.
