Hooked On a Feeling

You articulated what I’ve been trying to share with friends and family these last few years. I could describe my “faith crisis”, “faith transition”, “exodus from the Mormon church” or whatever you want to call it, in a million different ways with a million different “reasons” I ultimately called it quits. But in hindsight I’ve realized it came down to shifting from KNOWING to simply not knowing. And I like it so much better over here. SO much better. People ask, “What about Joseph Smith? Where do you think the Book of Mormon came from? What do you believe about the afterlife now?” I love telling them, “You know, I just don’t know.” There are some things the church teaches that I flat out reject (many things) but there are many I’m not sure about and that’s okay.

Like what you read? Give case.kelli a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
