My name is Seth. I am a water/wastewater Engineer. I am a husband, Father, Dog Owner, Podcaster, professional procrastinator, and I am no longer a Mormon.

I was born and raised in the church. I attended all through my youth and teenage years. I did not serve an LDS Mission but was married in the Logan Temple at 21 to my wife. I have served in ward leadership callings and truly believed the LDS Church was the one true church.

My first bout with doubts in the church happened in 2012 when I stumbled upon a youtube video exposing church history issues. I officially started researching those issues in Spring 2015. I decided to stop attending Church in August 2015 and I have not been back.

To the question….Where will I go? The beauty in life is figuring that question out. Where will you go? What can you do? There are amazing thinks to discover. Mistakes to be made. Lives to be lived. Leaving orthodoxy opened my eyes to the need to live my life. To stop marching to the drum of others and find what speaks to me. My leaving the church was a great awakening within me. It has led me to meet amazing kind people. It has given me the opportunity to serve others who are experiencing the pain of losing Faith.

What I hope to find, where I hope to go, is a place that I discover in asking the questions that matter. I hope to go to a place where I can make a difference. I can grow to be a better person then I was yesterday. I can help grow and create communities that make a difference.

Losing my religion wasn’t the end

The Mormon faith has always been a strong influence in my life and upbringing. However at a young age, I chose to become inactive. I was a very confused young adult with a lot of questions. The answer I was given: to pray... which I did but I still felt very unsure...

Freedom and Actual Happiness

After being raised Mormon, going on a mission and marrying a Mormon, I gathered the courage to leave it about two and a half years ago. Though consequently it resulted in a divorce, I have never been happier. I am now free to live, think and feel how I want to. I live...

Losing My Life and Finding It

“Where will you go?” long before these words were uttered from the pulpit, I had them written in my heart, and they were terrifying to me. The youngest child of an extremely devout, conservative LDS family, the Church was my reality. I never missed Sunday School or...

Oh hey, it’s me.

I have nothing but fond experiences growing up in the church. I grew up in a family that loves the church deeply. I was so grateful for it! It wasn't until after I got married in the temple at 19, that certain things didn't feel as right or at home like they had used...

The world is richer and fuller than you can possibly imagine

The world is richer and fuller than you can possibly imagine. Culture, food, and whatever you feel you need to experience it is yours and no one elses. Go out of your comfort zone. Leaving has opened a whole possibility and discovery of beauty you will miss if you...

I will go where the Spirit Leads

I was ushered out of the church 30 some odd years ago when I came out at Ricks (BYU Idaho). I wasn't ex'd, I was just no longer Mormon. I floundered for a very long time, because back then there wasn't a network as there is now. Over the years I have found love and...
