How did you feel and what did you experience as a result of your loss of faith?

I discarded and re-examined most of my most fundamental beliefs. I did not do this because I wanted to. It is a painful and laborious process to change one’s total worldview.

After walking away, we are surprised to see that the world is not as decadent as the church told us. Even more of a surprise is that we are far from alone. We’ve met many Mormon seniors who have similar stories. There are far more EX-Mormons than believing Mormons, even where we live in the Salt Lake Valley. We have found a welcoming new community.

We have been traveling a lot and enjoying a much more abundant life, with real agency. Just being honest about everything has been a blessing and eliminating the monthly 10% tithe of our retirement income has too.
Now that we don’t have to be perfect, we can just be good. We are happier that way.
