Dear Bro Jo,
Thank you so much. I appreciate your honesty so much. You are right.
Sorry if it was painful.
So . . . what are you going to do now?
- Bro Jo
I'm going to college soon over a thousand miles away. But before anything, he is my best friend. I don't want to sound like some pathetic teenager, because I love my life. My family and friends I have are amazing. I think in the back of my mind I have this little fantasy that he'll join the Church because he wants to, like my sister-in-law.
It's OK to be uncertain. That's part of life, and a Big Part at your age. Enjoy! As you get older the uncertainties become more difficult, and you'll look back at these and say "Well, holy heck in a bucket! That wasn't so bad!"
(I chuckled at "boys are icky throw rocks at them"!)
For what it's worth, I hope he joins the Church, too; and you're right: it has to be for him, not for you.
Good luck and have fun at school! Tell everyone I said "hello" - and do me a favor, would ya?
Go on a few dates!

I think I can handle such a request
I appreciate all your help, Brother Johnston.
