Wait a Second!!!

So I'm part of a group of Facebook. It's a private group, but if you want an invite, let me know.

One of the hardest things about leaving Mormonism, was wondering what was wrong with me. I was actually employed by the corporation which runs the religious activities of Mormonism at the time, and so there I was, surrounded by thousands and thousands of Mormons at work, at home and at church, and the question in my mind was...

How can they all be wrong, and what makes me so special to think that I can see it's all a sham?

That feeling of loneliness is perhaps the worst part of leaving.

Fortunately I found a couple of friends online, and as time has progressed I've made actually friends in real life as well - not that online friends aren't real, but...

Anyway, so the cool thing was learning that there are others out there. And that was the idea behind the group.

So today I perusing the posts from the past weekend, and I came across this...

And my first thought was... Hey... I know Sarah!

If you didn't watch the video, I'd recommend it. It's a good one!


  1. Hey, that's me, haha! ;) Thanks for the shout out. I think it's a great project and it was awesome to be part of it!

  2. Score one for triathletes as well!!!

  3. "How can they all be wrong, and what makes me so special to think that I can see it's all a sham?"

    World population: 7,000,000,000+
    (Nominal) Mormon population: 14,000,000

    At least 99.8 percent of the world's population is special enough to not believe in Mormonism.

  4. Although it's probably significantly higher, especially since I'm meeting an increasing number of the 14,000,000 who don't believe it either :-D

  5. phew, you think I am real! I think I am real too, well most of the time.

  6. I have faith that you're real Maureen. Even though I can't touch you, I see evidence as to your existence... Wait a sec - am I venturing into inappropriate waters here?

    One day I'll make it down under, and then you and Mr. Bikini, and me and Mrs Koda will have to get together for a drink or something!

  7. hahah ...It WILL happen, whether we meet up in Utah, Australia or Las Vegas (my favourite city) we will have proof if life someday... and TGW and Bowie, AngryBaker, Marijuana Boy etc etc .... lot's of meetups to look forward to :)
