http://m.sltrib.com/sltrib/mobile3/58167015-219/buddy-faith-pain-question.html.csp This article pulled at my heart strings. I was thinking the other day how hard it is to relate to people who have fundamental differences in belief about life and its purpose.

TransMormon – Ex-Mormons Unite Technically now, she is a woman with the priesthood. I’m interested to see the church’s decision on her case, but I’m not expecting anything earth-shattering or un-expected.

Expert Ex-Mormon | Recovery from Mormonism That was a turning point for me. I realized that I’d been pushing my wife to hear things she didn’t want to hear, and she had been pushing back just as hard to get me to step back in line. We both changed because of my suicide attempt. We(…)
The Mom of OZ: Strengthen home and family? A friend of mine wrote this post, and all I can say is hell to the yes. I remember the dreams I had when I was young, and honestly it was so damn confusing once I got to my late teens. There were so many things that(…)
The Sustaining of Church Officers – general-conference Never saw a dissenting vote before, so this was interesting to watch.
It Is Done goojabee: exmormonsunite: My husband and I just sat down and wrote our resignation letter to the LDS church. I honestly feel very somber right now, but I also feel liberated.
