My name is Jon. I was raised in the LDS culture my whole life. I recently decided that enough was enough and have left the Church, and been very vocal about my stance on things. I still have not submitted the letter of resignation. Even though it is written and will be sent off in due time.

My wife is as active as she can be in Church. She has some major health problems and can not attend much. She still believes and has immense faith and passion about the Church. She supports my decision as I support her on still going.

I don't know what else you want to know. Just ask me anything. i am very open.

Happy Free Sundays to you all,

Jon

Welcome Jon :-)

Yes, I had a great Sunday last week....I picked up a cool vintage rug at a flea market, I had thought the days for getting bargains were long since gone with all the dealers these days, and returned a dvd to the library. The film was A Little Chaos, Alan Rickman film. Stunningly relevant to me it was, which was a bit amazing.

And all the best to your wife too.

Hi and welcome. You are very fortunate that your wife supports you. There are so many sad stories on-line where the Church comes between a couple and destroys their marriage.

You sound like someone who will always be your true self and will live a genuine life.

Thanks so much for the replies and comments. I am sure my wife has her doubts about the Church some days. One thing that I have tried to tell her is read the Essays. She has not yet.

I have said a few times on forums, Facebook posts, and my blog that the Church is slowly going to change their history to match up with what the Essays portray. I know they have asked wards to take all the old manuals and send them back and they will receive new ones, with what i am sure is major changes. But most members will not notice, since they did not read the essays.

Hello JonMin from Logan. Welcome to the Ex or Post Mo forums. You're definitely not isolated nor alone by any means. There is a dedicated Post Mormon support group that normally meets Sunday Evenings(6:30 pm) in the Beehive Grille on South Main. Jeff RIcks, founder, normally attends on a regular basis to provide support for those with questions or difficulties reconciling their new awareness and knowledge, as do many other mentors. Have you ever attended?

What's curious is that the Joseph Smith Papers site has copies of the Book of Commandments and you can watch the morphing of the prophecies as they get loaded to the D&C. That was my wedge issue. when I saw that I just couldn't understand it. And that got me looking at a lot of other things.

Peace
