I've been out of the church for about six years. I was a convert after high school (after much vehement opposition from my parents). My high school boyfriend was LDS and I got totally sucked in. I believed it with everything. I didn't think it was true, I knew it. Anyway, he went on his mission and I proceeded to marry the first guy I met in college. I went to Michigan State University and was heavily involved with the student ward there so I met a returned missionary at an institute dance. We got married when I was nineteen. I had my first baby at twenty-one. I knew my marriage was awful within months and was told by bishop after bishop that this was my trial in life. During the fifteen years of my first marriage I got used to looking at everyone else who seemed happy and knowing that would never be me. I was just enduring life and was not a happy person.

One day, my husband brought a book home from the church library that they were apparently throwing away because it was discovered to be an "anti" book. It was, "Emma Hale Smith: Mormon Enigma". What an eye-opener. That was the first moment I realized that the church could have been built on lies. I was determined to hold fast though.
