"Thank you for those thoughts. I am so much better prepaired to do this! My husband is coming around, he is even drinking tea( he loved tea before we joined.) That is a big step for him and I know that he is going at his own pace. Thank you to the…"
"Even just using the simple Courtroom Analogy--if a courtroom only displays the defendant's argument, then the defendant will always be set free! You can't have a fair trial unless you hear both sides of the argument.

"Have him check out some of the Journal of Discourses on line, and MormonThink.com has been very helpful for my husband. My hubby's taken over 9 months of small things here and there to finally start admitting to himself it's not what we…"
"I totally agree with you about the four year ideolgy. They are amazing. I think you are exactly right reguarding my husband. I think he knows deep down inside that everything is okay. I appreciate all of the suggestions. They are already helping."
"Well, what your husband is feeling is normal. Many of us go through a period of worrying that we are damming ourselves even though we know we aren't. We're taught that going against the church or doing things the church disapproves of will…"
"My suggestion is learn as much as you can. I took the university route. I have been studing biblical studies for the last 5 years. It does not matter what JS said he was, if Jesus was just a man and not the Son of God. that is were the evidence…"
" Since you have already left mentally is the freedom factor.Your mind is opened and even if your husband isnt all the way out all you have to do is let him know how it feels to breath,relax,and how it is to see from a different view.Trust is…"
"Send him to lds apologist sites instead (fairlds, Maxwell institute, jefflindsay). These ate sites that are pro-lds and address many antimormon questions.

"Those are all really helpful. I have tried to get my husband to do some research but the whole" do not look at anti mormon stuff" banter from LDS members has really got him scared to look at these things I have found. I am not sure how to…"
"Before you go to another church take a break from religion. After awhile you may take a deep look at any organized religion and find you can apply the same things to that church as you can to the LDS church so you'd be setting yourself up…"
"I have told almost all my LDS friends and family that I don't want to talk about it. I tell them if they want to know what issues that I have with the church they can do their own research. This has worked fairly well.…"
Hello. I just left the mormon church(physically) mentally I left years ago, almost as soon as I joined. Here are a few things I am struggling with:1.)

I was not raised LDS. My husband were young, newly married and had a new baby. We fell in love with the good people at the LDS church. Before long my husband was serving in leadership positions and I was serving in several callings. I began to question the religion soon after baptisim. For my husband I continued to go. We were sealed in the DC Temple.I left once and went back for my husband. We have left agan for the last time. He has left with me . We are happy, normal and our children will not have to grow up under their unrealistic microscope.We are Christians again.
Interests and Hobbies:
Going to the beach. Listining to music. Reading irreverant books. Raising my kids. Road trips.
The Southern Vampire Series by Charlene Harris.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
We are so new to this. I guess it would be watching rated R movies and telling hallirious irreverant jokes. Being 24 for the first time. We have been "old" since we wre 19. It feels GREAT!

I would like to recommend a book from a man who was able to get out of the cult called the Moonies. Stephen Hassan is now a renowned cult expert and his book is very informative and helps people to see the kinds of situations that are harmful, not just physically but mentally and emotionally.
