I’m opening up this page of my blog to those who would like to tell their story and be understood.
Here are the guidelines:
Try to keep it under 750 words. Its not strict though, so take the time you need.
Please follow the attitude and purpose you see through the rest of this blog – be inviting and tell your story in a self-disclosing way that helps people experience what it was like for you. Help them feel what you felt. Don’t be unbalanced and argumentative, but be honest and straightforward at the same time. If you have difficulty striking that balance I would suggest pretending you’re writing to yourself. If you’re no longer religious, pretend you’re writing to your religious self of a few years ago. Try to write with that level of love, respect, and honesty.
If you’d like to submit your story my email is email@example.com. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
Readers will always be able to access the Series links from this page – click on the series you would like to read and you’ll find links to the stories within the main blog.
For those who have left the LDS Church to tell their story, to give us an idea of what it was like to make that choice.
For Mormons who have had family members leave to express what it is like.
For those who left the Church and decided to return.
