Raised 4th generation Mormon (in Kearns, Utah), stopped believing around age 12-13 when critical thinking kicked in. Stopped going to church at age 14 (the age my mom finally let me stop!). I'm not religious, but have a certain fondness for Mormons (and of course, Ex-Mormons!). While I'm 4th generation Mormon, I'm 1st generation American. Thank you missionaries! My great-grandfather on my mom's side was converted as a young adult in Germany, so both my mother and grandmother were raised TBMs (in Germany). Mormonism plays a huge part in my family's story of surviving WW2 in Nazi Germany and then coming to America.
Critical thinking & teenage rebellion. Also, church was frigging boring!
Hi! I'm in Seattle actually, but am from SLC & have lots of family there still (some Ex-Mormons, some still active). I run the Seattle area Ex-Mormon group & would like to stay connected & see what types of events you guys have so I can copy you!
