      Hello from Virginia!

      Hey, how are you all doing? As my handle implies, I am a Confessional Lutheran, part of a congregation that's part of the Southeastern District of the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod. I'm a convert, having joined up in 2013 by a reaffirmation of faith when I was living in Jacksonville, FL and attending what was ( at the time) a mission church. I was born in Fairfax County, VA, in 1973 and was raised as a Southern Baptist. In 1995, I was confirmed in the Catholic Faith at the Easter Vigil. After a few years of wandering, I studied Confessional Lutheranism and as a result of prayer, my wife ( at the time) and I walked through the doors of Hope Lutheran Church and a couple of months later, we took a weekly class under the pastor in Jacksonville and were received in February of 2013.

      My failed marriage was a very valuable lesson ( I hope to both myself and my ex- wife) to not put personal desires and make life choices without involving God. My family lives in Northern Virginia and I was invited to return. So I did. The job opportunities here are pretty decent, better at least than what I saw in my time in Florida ( about three years) and I'm currently employed, although I'm taking steps to improve my opportunities in the job market. God bless you all!

      Welcome! I'm LCMS too

      It sounds as if you've had quite the journey but God is blessing you in many ways!
