"A very moving account. A few years ago I was in a relationship with someone with mental problems and I suffered some extreme physical violence. I had to go to a lawyer to try and stop the harrassment. But it was too late, because my address book had…"

"Hi Dana, thank you for your frankness and telling it how it is. When I lived in SLC I used to work at the LDS Hospital as a CNA in the well-baby nursery. As you can imagine I worked with a lot of mormon mother's as well as mormon nurses. During…"

Dana Dahl commented on Dana K. Dahl's blog post Facing Your Rapist - By Insana D
"I agree Kate. When I meet a lil' ol' bishop I see a player or a good guy just trying to do his job. When I meet a Stake President I know he's paid some dues with the good ol boys club and they know he'll keep the secrets. When I…"

"Wow! As an x bishop I would never even think of having a court without first counseling with the individual and seeing if things would work out over time with one on one interviews. In 7 years I only had 1 court. The bishop may have to watch over…"

"Are you related to Richard Brent Packer? I knew a guy in college that moved to Blackfoot Idaho. Maybe it's a common name there. He was a good kisser."

"I didn't even know what sex really was until I was divorced. And I can also relate, even at an early age. I left the church on my own, and still happy w/ my decision."

Walk A Mile In These Cute Pumps! (a decade off fermentation has made this story a bit sweeter)

Sex in the Mormon culture and religion is a very taboo subject. It is so uncomfortable for most LDS to discuss or even joke about that they’ll go to great gyrations, denial, and outright legal limitations to keep the members from discussing or openly engaging in fairly normal human experiences. Plenty of sex goes on with the LDS members and some very scandalous parts of the LDS history, especially surrounding Joseph Smith and Brigham Young’s dark histories has tainted the puritanical façade of…See More

Profile Information

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):
happily married
My Story:
I'm a happily married middle aged woman who is on the tail end of processing my experiences in the LDS church. My hope is that soon I can fill my life with worthwhile and fun adventure, interesting people, time with my children and grandkids, gardening, art and travel. I look forward to getting beyond Mormonism, where the damage that religion and my past have done are so far in the past that the ghosts no longer haunt me. Doing good for goodeness sake is a goal I hope to incorporate in my future endeavors. I hope the next 30 years of my life are enlightening and full of wonder. There's so much to discover, so many interesting people to meet, and so much good that needs doing in the world. If not that, then hopefully I can help a few people laugh.
Interests and Hobbies:
Art, gardening, literature, politics (liberal), UU's, my grandkids and kids, yardwork, travel, writing, humor, indy films, comedy of almost any sort, writing my book
Favorite activity after mormonism?
finding out that the world is so much more interesting, diverse, and full of fascinating people than the ones I met in the church.
