I just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I was raised in the Mormon church and left at age 22 when I was engaged and about to go throught the temple. The man I was marrying was a widowerer who had been sealed to his first wife. When it was explained I would be second wife in heaven, something went off inside me and I ran. I left the church and was saved at 23 when I committed my life to Christ.
My parents are both ultra super-mormons who go to the temple weekly and have ancestors who came from Missouri and have geneology that can be traced back way too far. I am related to half of Utah, at least 90% of the people who reside in Snowville. They hope I will come to my senses and come back to the one true church. Not happening!
I have been married for over 20 years to the same person, quite happily, with 4 kids and two grandkids. I am proof their is happiness if you don't marry a returned missionary in the temple!
Anyway, I am happy to be here and just wanted to say I am looking forward to reading everyone's posts!
I also love watching HBO's Big Love...anyone here watch it?
