Hi, I'm Austin!
I was a mormon.
I grew up to Mormon pioneer stock in California and Texas. I believed in the truthfulness of the Gospel with 100% of my heart, might, mind, and strength. I served a mission and held various callings, from primary teacher to first counselor in EQ presidency. I moved to Utah after my mission and have lived here ever since.

Why I left More answers about 'Why I left' the mormon church
About 3 years ago I experienced my faith transition. While it’s hard to nail the start of the process as it could have been in childhood, when I had cancer, sometime on the mission, or 4 years ago, but after much prayer, questioning, thinking, and studying– I felt it was no longer true.
Since I have left many things have stayed the same. My friends and family accept me for the most part. I love my family and seek after things that are true and good, but I don’t rely on authority figures to tell me what’s true. I try to make others laugh, I try to make beautiful things, and try to live in an exciting and ironic way while I’m here.
