This blog is no longer being updated. About this blog.
The original raison d’être for this blog was to tell the story of my metamorphosis from a practicing Mormon to a questing, agnostic, passionate, cheerfully nameless something else. This story, intended primarily for my family, is a good way to understand where I’m coming from. It is the personal context for the remainder of this blog. For the impatient, there is also an executive summary. For the attention challenged, I offer my story as a haiku.

If you’re looking for a community of ex-Mormons who will support you in your transition out of the Mormon community and mindset, I personally prefer Main Street Plaza and /r/exmormon though there are many other worthy communities. Bonus feature: it holds Outer Blogness, a list of blogs by former Mormons.
