Finally Got To See Garments For Myself

I was a convert to the church at 25 (actually got baptised on my 25th birthday).

Hey do you ever come into the chat room?  There is someone that comes in late nights that lives in Denver that keeps trying to get your attention because your name is popped up there as logged in.  LOL.  Just thought you should know in the event you were looking for some local Ex-Mormons.
