about the first part - "not really sure where I'm going now as far as religion goes" - for myself, I know where I am going with that....and am very happy with my direction....
about the 2nd part - "just glad to be away from Mormonism!" - totally agree.

Glad to hear, Deepesa! DiamondWoman, I'm trying to stay away from it all, too! Just have some friends trying to sway me into Christianity, because they've prayed so long for me to leave the cult of Mormonism...lol.

Sooooo true!

For me, I have no direction. I was raised to let others make their own decisions. Who are we to judge? Isn't that for God?

So this is how I'm going to live my life. I'm not sure that God exists. However, if 'God' is the ever loving and forgiving entity that most believe him/her to be, then shouldn't living a good life be good enough? Follow the basic laws; do no harm, help others, etc, and I should be good to go. If there is no God or Heaven, then I haven't wasted my life working hard to achieve something that never existed.

Sometimes, simple is better.

Wow, Cami.....soooo eloquently stated! You took the words right outta my mouth!! Well done, well done!! :) I'm in 100% agreement with you!! I couldn't have said it better! Kudos to you!! :)

I'm enjoying the freedom that uncertainty brings. "Not knowing" after you've been in a religion that tells you that feeling is knowing is actually quite a free-ing experience.

I'm happy in my not having to have all the answers.

I have to ask......if parents are there to direct and guide their children (who should then make their own choices) who guided and directed the parents to be able to do that?
