Who are you?  I know your screen names and I even know what you believe.  But it’s kinda weird, I know some of you better then my friends in the real world 🙂  So I want to make this post as a way to get to know each other a little better, this is just for fun, and to be taken lightheartedly!

 So I’m thinking a list of 10 things is good, you can give more or less it’s up to you!

So this is me:

1.  I’m an LDS convert  🙂   (what a shocker I know)

 2.  I’m happily married (for 6 years) and I am still madly in love with my husband!

 3.  I have 2 of the greatest kids who I love more then anything.

4.  I hate crowds (and traffic)

5.   I’m scared of flying

 6.  I like bugs, snakes, sharks, the scarier and weirder the better.

7.  My favorite color is pink

8.  I love to eat (it’s probably one of my favorite thing to do)

 9. I love the outdoors, I love trees and water! 

10.  I love the Gospel (sorry I know most of you already know this but I HAD to put in in here 🙂  )

Ok your turn!

  3. I was a convert to the LDS church. I left and had my name removed. I’m now going to an Independent Baptist church.

    I have three boys, the oldest are 11 and 13. The youngest is 17 months. We are in the process of adopting him.

    I would LOVE to adopt a girl, but since I have three boys I have know idea what I’d do with her (LOL).

    I home school my kids, and I’m a stay at home mom.

    I am such a girl! I hate spiders, bugs and snakes.

    I really enjoy reading and studying the Bible.

    I love History. I like to read, and watch movies and such about it.

    I would love to learn how to play the piano.

    I love Dairy Queen a little to much.

  4. I’m an investigator of The Mormon Church and I suppose all Christian based religions.

    I’m single , no kids .

    My Interests are religion , cults ( whatever they are lol ) , History , Archeology , Anthropolgy etc and I’m an amateur in all them areas..

    I teach in High School .

    I read alot , my most recent book is Preach My Gospel 🙂 and I can see now why all my missionaries behave in a certain way and say certain things …

    My fave recent books are

    Grant Palmer ‘An Insiders View Of Mormon Origins’
    Richard Bushman ‘Rough Stone Rolling’
    Simon Southerton ‘Loosing A Lost tribe’
    Steve Hassan ‘Combatting Cult Mind Control ‘
    Brigham H Roberts ‘ Studies of the Book Of Mormon ‘

    I’ve ordered the Arza Evans book ‘ The Keystone of Mormonism.’ after hearing him at conference ( exmo one lol )

    I’ve read Book of Mormon , Jesus The Christ – Talmage . Articles Of Faith – Talmage , The Way To Perfection – Joseph Fielding Smith , A Marvelous work and a wonder -Legrands Richards , Truth Restored -Gordon Hinckley ,True To The Faith – churchbook and a bit of Journal Of Discourses ( mostly the horrible bits ) . I have an Ensign subscription also .

    I think my main Interest is The world and its origin , Mankind and its origin , why we are here , where did we come from and where are we going ?Where have all the past generations gone , how many future ones will there be ? What is the point of it all including marrying and having children etc

    I’m quite happy not knowing for sure … although mormonism’s answers are intruiging to me …

  6. I was an adult convert. When I met my hubby he was an inactive member of the LDS church. After we were married I was baptized, a year after that we were sealed in the D.C temple.

  7. “I have 2 of the greatest kids who I love more then anything.”

    2 of the greatest eh? Well I have THE greatest kid! She just told her mom to “take the stick out of her butt.” Daddy accidentally said that on the phone to a telemarketer and now she thinks it is hilarious.

  8. Hi Steffielynn,
    Ok this is my first post, I love your site here and it has been a great inspiration for my journey to come. I am not LDS but my wife and 13 year old daughter are, but inactive. I am starting a blog here on my journey to conversion if you will, it will be more of a journal to myself than anything else. Anyway, I was trying to find sites to read them from people who have been converts and their comments.
    Great site.

  11. OK, I’ll follow your pattern:

    1. I was born and raised Mormon. As were my parents, as were my grandparents. I had ancestors that lived in Nauvoo at the time Joseph was there.
    2. Happily married – 18 years.
    3. Four kids, all boys. Range from 4-14.
    4. Hate crowds. Not very social.
    5. Don’t mind flying.
    6. HATE snakes.
    7. I don’t even think about things like favorite color.
    8. I eat to live, not the other way around.
    9. I am not much of an outdoorsman, nor an environmentalist.
    10. The gospel is everything to me.

  12. I was born and raised a Mormon and my husband had my name removed from the church records for reasons only he knows.
    I am now a Christian who speaks out about the truth of Mormonism.
    I have a heartfelt longing for all Mormons to come to know the truth about what the deep meanings are of the faith from Joseph Smith.
    God bless you all and I pray that Jesus will come into your hearts and you will be saved.

  13. Thanks for your concern! I have read through your blog, you have a very sad story, and I am sorry for the hurt you have experienced.

    It seems though that the hurt was from a very mean and abusive husband. Not at all because of the LDS church. I do not mean to minimize your feelings, this is not my intent.

    Personally I have found joy in the gospel, and I am so grateful, more then I could ever say.

    So I guess I will just have to simply disagree with you and I wish you the best and I am glad that you have found happiness!

  14. I figured since I get on this post and express my biased opinions I figured it is time to tell a bit about myself.

    I am 44; I was raised in a Mormon family. Served a mission in England, returned married my HS sweetheart started a family and ended up having 4 children.

    About 12 years ago I felt compelled to study more in detail my faith; my patriarchal blessing admonished me to this. Especially to Study the Leaders of this last dispensation, my entire blessing is posted on LDS Anarchist’s blog.

    As I studied and researched I decided that what I had been taught was not true and started my exit from the Church, my already strained and unhealthy marriage couldn’t take the strain and ended in divorce. I eventually got tired to coming home to things like having all the pictures of the Temple in our house smashed and broken, waking up in the morning with ink pen writing all over my body saying derogatory comments for my change of faith.

    Originally I still supported and could see no wrong in encouraging my children to continue in the faith. It seemed it would be more confusing to them to do otherwise, so I just kept things to myself. Something I regret and probably the only thing I regret by taking this path. I should have shared more with them.

    I have been very fortunate in my profession and am financially free from working on a daily basis. This has allowed me to pursue a hobby of reading and studying. I have found a passion reading religious historical information along with anything to do with science and man’s origin, I was not a great student when I was young so I am making up for lost time. I have always had a passion for reading I have just switched from fiction to non-fiction in the last 5 years. I feel it is important to read both sides and positions so I try to balance that out. I will have to admit I do that less now than before when I was really trying to make sense of my life and its meaning. Now that I feel life is in balance and I am comfortable in my skin and beliefs I read more things that are of my personal interests. However I am willing to read and consider anything someone suggests or uses in support of their position that could run contrary to mine, I am just not inclined to seek it out when I am doing my weekly trip to the book store unless someone compels me to do so I am more likely to pick up a Karl Sagan book than a book about Creationism or such.
