Why I'm No Longer Mormon

"This is very disturbing. But it isn't entirely correct. It definitely has it's own "anti-mormon" spin on everything. I just want the facts. It doesn't help to jump from one extreme to the other."

Welcome Sarah! Thanks for joining. There's a whole world of happy people outside of mormonism (99.99% of the world is non-LDS). Come on in...the water is fine. There is useful "spiritual" truth outside of mormonism that can lead to an equally or more peaceful and joy filled life than Mormonism. Just be open to what is out there and enjoy the search and journey. Enjoy the site and community!
