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.

Those who wander are not always lost

In response to "where will you go?" I say, "those who wander are not always lost," and there is "joy in the journey." The first part is a popular quote from J.R.R. Tolkien, the second part is from the 1998 EFY theme and together they sum up what my spiritual journey...

I can finally enjoy life

Towards Love, Authenticity, and a Genuine Daily Life

10 years ago as a gay, newly divorced father of four and former Mormon, where I would go and what I would do was indeed the looming question. A lifetime of seminary, sunday school, priesthood, mission, BYU and church leadership had me imagining myself at best as a...

I will find happiness

The Mormon church has been apart of my family for generations and I would say it is still a part of my culture. I learned a lot of things from being an active member, a bishop’s daughter, and a youth leader. I learned to how to be confident speaking in front of a...

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...
