How long were you in the church?

I was in the church for 19 years. I left October 2012.

What caused you to question the church?

I just think it happened over the course of many years. I hated going to church at a young age. I grew into a teenager and started listening to music and watching movies that the church didn't approve of and just sort of got me on the fast track to not wanting to be apart of the church. All my friends weren't mormon. I had no mormon friends and I felt the people I talked to in church were just talking to me cause they felt they had to. I just sort of felt like I didn't belong. I started to not approve of the things they stood for. My general attitude towards the church was just hate. Me being a lesbian is also a big chunk of not wanting to be apart of the church. Don't get me wrong, I think mormons can be genuine nice people. But I just don't think its right for me.

Introduction

Hey, my name is Ashley. I am 20 years old. I was raised into the church and my family is all mormon. I am a lesbian that happens to be taken. I like to draw and play guitar. I would love to make friends and meet new people.
