Re: Feeling so lonely

Check out Mormon Spectrum, they have a variety of different groups around the country with people who have been through or are going through what you are going through. Just FYI, I imagine some of the groups will be much more ex-Mormon/post-Mormon and so you may have to reach out to some of the grou...

Re: How does this not drive some of you away

LH - I'm glad many here are staying and choosing to attempt to help (DW is one of those. We have a transgender youth in our ward and DW is in YW and feels she needs to be there to help this particular person). I, on the other hand, have chosen to take a sabbatical for the rest of the year (and proba...

Re: This is the first thing to really help.

Same, really enjoyed the conversation. The part they didn't get to, which is the part I struggle with, is how to co-exist in such different paradigms? Especially when one paradigm dominates and doesn't seem to be much interested in self-examination or dialogue. I think most of us would welcome that ...

Re: Some kindness came from the TOP

Rob,

I admire your friendship and I am happy that he is allowed to be included. I'm gladdened to see a decision that makes sense to all parties, sometimes hope can be narrow strand, I'm glad your friends feels that small tug of hope.

Re: How to read the BoM after knowing its history?

Truth be told, I can't read the BofM right now, and not sure I ever will. If it could be discussed at church within the context of mythology and what can we learn from it, I might pick it back up, but I dount that will ever happen. In addition, I just don't really find it inspiring. So I have set it...

Re: Update

Thanks for the update. Glad we could be of help. Like you and many others I have also found comfort in being here and would not have made it from crisis to transition without the help of this site. As you continue your journey I wish you peace. I am sure others can gain from your insights and your ...

Update

StayLDS Friends, Though I doubt any of you have been wondering, just wanted to give you an update on where I am. To quote The Grateful Dead - this last year: "What a long strange trip it's been." It's been a little over a year since I stumbled into the rabbit hole and found myself here at StayLDS. I...
