Breaking the Silence — 9 Comments

  1. I just want to thank you both for being there for me and my kids when others could not or even would not during my transition out of the LDS church. I can add to your story about being lead out by a loving, and careful God, who knew that I could not heal in that church. You guys are wonderful. I appreciate your open door and open hearts.

  2. Roy, I am glad to know you. Your remarks touch me. Thank you for your kindness and compassion. May you continue forward in your journey surrounded by people who appreciate everything that you are.

  3. Roy, I have gotten to know you and Steve through shared connections on social media support groups, and I think you are a great example of how to love others despite your challenges associated with this monumental change in your life. Thank you for sharing your story, and I hope it helps others in similar situations.

  4. Thank you for sharing. My story has so many similarities, but I’m going through it mostly alone. It’s a strange transition, but I feel like I’ve shed so many traditions that felt unnatural to me. I’m happy, but wish I had more of a community to turn to. My husband won’t talk to me about it. It’s an odd place to be.

    • It can be really lonely if you don’t have a community to share things with. Have you checked out Mormon Spectrum? This can be a great way to find a local or online community. My wife and I have started a local community, although we’re in the Seattle area. I hope you’re able to find something that works for you.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing, I really needed this tonight. I feel like Tammie, shedding unhealthy traditions but am very alone in this in my small southern Utah town. I hope things get better from here.
