Do a little study of your own - read the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and words of modern Apostles and Prophets @ http://www.Mormon.org
Then find out for yourselves if these words are true - see if there's something good that moves in you.
You're ready or you're not. What have you got to lose? Test your own existing relationship with God and ask Him about these Sacred Works. Don't listen to the chatter of others - know for yourself.
All my best to you, Reid Baer
