How did you come to be Mormon? Were you raised in the church?

My Parents were baptized when I was just over a year old. i am now 60. So I was essentially raised in the church.  We lived in England from 1961 to 1973. My parents were very strict.

I was born and raised in the church. My parents were raided in the church as well. They made me participate in church and scouts. I do not blame them for my negative experiences in the church: they were just doing what they believed to be right, what the church had told them was right. I blame the church for my negative experiences and the lasting effects the church has on a person after leaving it.
