Ha ha, thanks 5stones. When I was a kid we grew up in VA and my mom sent us to Summer
Bible School, etc, that were run by other denomanations. I had lots of fun and wouldn't be opposed to signing my kids up for something like that.

I'm a native Texan, lived in Keller for 10 years, and an LDS convert. There are a lot of LDS in the area in fact the Park Glen neighborhood has the highest LDS population in the area! Good luck with your move!

I have no problem whatsoever living in an area that is predominately Baptist. But would my neighbors have a problem with ME? I would hate for my children to be excluded because we do not attend the same church. We are Christians with good morals anyhow.

What do you think? Would my children really be ostracized, or are these opinions of ignorant people?
If people here ostracize you because you are LDS, it's their loss.

The pastor of First Baptist Dallas recently made a comment referring to the LDS church as a "cult." That sort of talk is ridiculous. Every Mormon I've ever met has the sort of values any community would welcome.

I'm not a Mormon, but I've noticed a Mormon church on North Beach Street just north of the intersection with Basswood Boulevard, and it is about three miles south of Keller.

I would think there are more differences between Idaho and Texas than religion that you may need to consider, such as weather, traffic, and topography. I've never been to Idaho, but it seems colder, slower paced, less populous, and more mountainous than here. I have no idea about your school system, but Texas doesn't value excellent schools since they're insufficiently funded, have a high dropout rate, and test scores are low-to-average compared to other states.

On the upside, companies are relocating or expanding causing job growth in DFW, we have lots of sporting events and concerts, housing is relatively inexpensive, and people are polite.
