LDS.net is a social network that invites people all over the world to engage in real-time conversation with those of all faiths. 25% of LDS.net users are actually friends of other faiths, coming to inquire, to see how we live, what we think, how our lives and the gospel of Jesus Christ are entwined.
A member of the McDoodle family came to LDS.net based on an interest in the Church in October of 2007. Before her baptism, on December 2, 2008, she posted asking for advice on how to help her 9 year old son understand and be ready for baptism at the same time. She is one of many who have used the online forums to seek advice in overcoming her fear of emailing the missionaries. Talking with them, then, accelerated her spiritual progress.
