For now, I'm in the process of making my pro's and con's list in the hopes that I will be able to stay in the church, on my own terms. It is so difficult having to question and rediscover literally everything I've ever been taught through a new lens. I have always had a problem with polygamy, and felt that I could be an accepted and fellowshipped member while being totally opposed to that "doctrine." However, my new concerns are far less popular and I have to be pretty much silent to continue.
Welcome to the site. Staying on our own terms is an important point of view for me too. Hope we can help as you are on your journey.

Welcome to our ward. We love you already. No topic scares us. We look forward to you joining us.

Side note we don't deliver meals. That's our only flaw.

Welcome to the forums, Square. I don't have much time to do more than a quick welcome, but I'm glad you've found us, and I'm glad that it sounds like you aren't alone in this and at least have an SO who can sympathize. Please don't be a stranger; we don't have all the answers, but we can certainly talk over all of them and maybe help provide a few perspectives. :)

Welcome! I loved your intro and related to so much of what you said. I am in my mid 50 ' s and hail from cali, although I have lived in utah for the past 22 years. My faith awakening began about 2 years ago and I was the second to last to get on board in our family of seven. My husband and our 5 children have all had different journeys which have led to the same outcome, that of non belief in the church or the gospel.

I love your enthusiasm and your authenticity and hope you share more if your ongoing journey. :D
