    Trying To Process My Feelings &Amp; Anger Over The LDS Faith

    I read an article on a faith promoting member blog and made the mistake of commenting. I'll admit my comment was an outburst of anger. In response the OP stated my comment was childish. I took no offense because the comment standing alone appeared childish, what she did not...

    What Mormonism Has Done To Me

    I grew up in a Mormon family. Ever since I was really little, my dad was always the dominant person in the house, chosen by God to be the father of our home. Even from a young age, it became obvious that the males in our family were favored. They got to do cool things like hike...

    I Guess I Wanted To Well Before It Happened

    I had too many questions that were left unanswered for me to stay quiet. I had ideas for my own future that did not match the views of what my family expected. I had dreams that would have been taken from me by the community without remorse. One day I was given the choice; to...

    The Black Sheep

    I've always felt different in my family.  I felt like I didn't belong. My whole family is mormon and like little ducklings in a row I followed. I didn't know any better.  But as I got older I realized that things didn't add up.  That things weren't making...

    My entire family and extended is LDS just like

    most of the town I live in and I don't think I can be this way anymore. I'm scared of losing members of my family. Things like my future wedding are destined to be seen as a disappointment if I step away. The last thing I want to do is hurt my parents but I don't believe major...

    I left Mormonism, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I don't judge or hate people who aren't like me anymore, and I accept and love people much more easily. No longer do I deal with half truths and unanswered questions! Nor do I have to hear nonsensical and...

    Mormonism And Hatred

    The mormon church prides itself on how great they are, the service they render, and the sacrifices of the members. They talk about how we're the one and only true church. If they were the church of "Christ", I wish they'd at least try to act like it. As far as church is...

    Falseness Of The LDS Faith And Remaining In The Ward.

    I have researched enough to thoroughly know that the Mormon (LDS) faith is completely bogus. I have read too many books and read too many articles quoting people who knew Joseph Smith Jr first hand to know that he is a lying sack of garbage. The LDS church completely...

    Left a Long Time Ago

     The Mormon Church is a patriarchal bunch of baloney.  My mother was so spirited and intelligent, but she gave her will to the mormon church, because that's how she was raised.  She had seven children.  My dad couldn't make a living because he has an asperger...

    I'm just wondering if anyone else out there

    feels lost after leaving the LDS church. Though it is not based on a true story, so many of its teachings were "true" in that they brought peace and happiness to my life. I felt loved and was able to love others more. I felt hope about my life after death. I felt there was a...

    To Resign Or To Not Resign (From The LDS Church)?

    I am at a point where I feel strongly about resigning from the mormon faith. I have not resigned at this point out of respect for the feelings of my mother and grandmother. My grandmother is in her late 80's and if I resigned I'm afraid of what stress it would impose on her...
