I have been doing a lot of reading and searching on my own, but I am wondered if there are any particularly good books that anyone would recommend for someone who is just coming out of mormonism?

The harder I tried the worse I felt...

I have never been a strong member. When I moved out at 19 I quit going to church. My mom transferred my records to the local ward and I became "the project". It took the ward two years, but I was…Continue

Kiley replied to Daisy's discussion Just for fun, let's make a list of "What year did you stop believing?"
"I quit believing and had the "this is not true" moment in Oct 2009. There had been a lot of doubts for a long time leading up to that though."

About to leave for the airport - Going to SLC

Posted on December 21, 2009 at 12:00pm 3 Comments

I am sitting in my apartment trying not to chew my fingernails off. I am going back to Utah to spend time with the family for two weeks over the holidays. I have not seen them for about 8 months and this is the first time that I will be seeing them face to face since we started having conversations about why I am leaving the church. Things are very bipolar. Sometimes my family seems ok and we have normal calm conversations about normal things (work, school, whatever). Other times the… Continue

Sometimes I wish I could get "plugged back in".

This last week has been kind of a rough week. Throughout the last week I have been thinking a lot about how hard it is to deal with the loss of my world view. At first I felt freed by leaving everything behind, and to a degree I do still feel freed. I feel a weight has been lifted, but in many ways the previous weight has been replaced by other things.

Ah...I see Bradbury among your favorite books/authors.  I've had the extreme pleasure of meeting him on two occasions and was over the moon both times!  The stars are forever brighter with his passing.

No te perdistes nada en cuanto a los mienbros de Fuengirola, aqui descubri la hipocresía que se encierra dentro de la iglesia.Yo me bautice en Navarra, en la misión de Bilbao, y lo mejor que pude hacer fue mudarme aqui para darme cuenta de lo imperfecta que era la iglesia, ya que alli me tenian totalmente abducida con llamamientos, discursos, bellas palabras...pero no les culpo porque es lo que pasa cuando uno esta absorvido por una secta.

Thanks, Kiley. I think all of us are sick of it. Unfortunately, some of us who are sick of it must still play happily along, or at least we feel like we must... Thanks for the welcome!
