Hi, I'm Spencer
I enjoy skiing, technology, and skepticism. I was a mormon.
I grew up Mormon, married in the temple, etc. I was all in.
Why I left
I had always enjoyed science and had many things church related on my shelf due to that background. I learned about skepticism and finally applied it to my own belief and it all fell apart.
Questions I've answered
Are you still christian?
No. My investigation lead me to a worldview that doesn't include supernatural belief.
How long was your struggle?
Off and on for ten years or more. I put lots on my shelf over the years.
What was the response from your family when you left?
They we're sad, but once the shock wore off they are supportive of me dispite our different belief systems.
I am now divorced, due in part to my change in belief. My family has been overall supportive and I am happier than ever.
What was the response from your ward when you left?
I was mostly ignored. The two bishops I talked to were not helpful and only one other person ever asked me why I stopped going.
