"Hi Polly,   I think you have discovered the secret to a lot of things.  Be happy is the answer.  So many people spend (waste) time in the Moron Church, unhappy, in pain, wanting to do and be better and what they end up doing is…"

"Thanks Don, and I will have a good day.  The one thing that took awhile to get used to with presbyterianism is the liturgy, as is present with all reformed churches.  Once I got past that, it was easy.  We have a prayer of confession…"

"Hi Pollypinks,   I don't think you trashed anyone or anything.  IMHO, you shared your views from the impression you have from your experiences.  It seemed open and honest, I laud that. :)  We as Catholics have our issues as…"

I was going to say that I loved reading your exit story, but at the same time it made my heart hurt.  I can identify so much with many aspects of it, as I am sure most here can. I do want to thank you for sharing your story though.  It helped me a lot to know once again that I am not alone even when it feels like it.  

I noticed you are from Springville Utah.  I grew up there as well!  Small world isn't it?
