I return to myself
I was a mormon.
I was born and raised in the LDS church, pioneer heritage, temple marriage and all. I never considered anything else. All the answers were there and it was easy. Not until my children started to reject the teachings of the church did I ever dare to really look at the church with any objective sight.
# Why I left More stories of 'Why I left' the Mormon church
When I had to face the reality that my children wouldn’t be with me in the Celestial Kingdom, I had to consider the ramifications of this “reality.” Ultimately it was finding that place of NON-JUDGMENT, PEACE, and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE within ME that caused me to walk away from the LDS church.
It has been over three years since I left. I had been Mormon for 42 years! Things haven’t been perfect, but they have been REAL. I have REAL conversations with my children and others now, and we dare to talk about the things we DON’T KNOW or DON’T UNDERSTAND. We look forward to growing,and stretching our minds and consciousness in ways that seemed to be constricted before. We honor everyone’s path – from those who choose to stay Mormon, to those who choose no religion.

Where have we gone, Elder Ballard? Well… we have returned to OURSELVES. “JUST BEING” has given us a great sense of peace and a feeling of HOME.
