May 23, 2014
I was born in the church, but I was inactive during high school. I was sealed in the Temple to my husband, who I divorced in December 2014. I was active in the church for 14 years, and extremely devote.
My brother in law is an editor for the Joseph Smith papers, and he mentioned that they were learning interesting things about Joseph Smith and his wives. I realized that I didn't know a thing about JS's wives other than Emma, so I decided to do some research. I read all 800 pages of Todd Compton's "In Sacred Loneliness," and I was appalled by the polyandry that I had no idea existed. That led me to research other things and then to my leaving.
Hi, I am a mother of six young children, and I left the church a couple of years ago. I just got divorced in December 2014, attend school online, and work full time. I love to read, watch movies, sing, hike and spend time with people.
