An update.

Since my last post I have received so much love and positivity. That is all I could ask for and all I want. The only mean comments I have gotten have unfortunately been from strangers who are unhappy with my decision. The mean comments were like less than .0001% of the comments I got but luckily, those people are all strangers who don't know me or my story but their comments sting like salt in a fresh wound. I've cried. I've debated putting my post back into my drafts so it never sees the light of day. Just deleting it off of this public space altogether. And then I remember the dozens, maybe hundreds of kind comments and messages. So many of you have expressed that you have felt so alone in your own journey. That you weren't sure how to help loved ones understand your story so you shared my post with them. Many people who are LDS have reached out and expressed their love, kindness, and support. They don't care what I believe and they know my heart. To those people- thank you SO much. Your words mean so much more than you will ever know.

I have used this piece of internet to share my life story in all aspects. I've made so many wonderful friends and connections because of my blog. I don't shy away from being vulnerable or to be just a goofy mom who is doing the best I can for my family.

My post was seen by WAY more people than I ever meant to see it. It was literally a post I wrote to help my friends and family understand my decision a little better. My post wasn't meant to be a history lesson. I shared very small tidbits of things that led me to where I am today. I left a few sources for anyone who didn't want to take my word for it (please don't, please do your own study because I'm just some girl on the internet ;) ) I didn't want to dive deep because that wasn't what my post was about. I am not a historian and I will never claim to be one. I have spent countless hours and months researching every valuable source I could and came to my own conclusions. I am so very aware that my conclusion doesn't have to be your conclusion. I don't think people who believe in the Mormon church are wrong, I can't call their personal experiences and conclusions wrong. They just aren't right for me. I don't think anyone on earth is 100% right. I know I'm not 100% right and I am happy to admit it. We all have our own ideas that lead us to our own happiness and that is pretty freaking amazing.

And for the record, Jason is probably the best person in the entire world. His love and support is something I can never be grateful enough for. If anything, I know I'm right about that!

Thank you.


  1. Girl, I meant to comment on your last post & forgot to. I truly believe that you put much thought into your decision & at the end of the day, if you're happy, that's all that truly matters. Screw the haters, they don't live your life. You do you, girlie. Much love. :)

  2. All that matters is that you are happy with the decision that you made! :) It doesn't matter what others think.


Thank you so much for your comment! If you have something nice to say, I love you. If you have something mean to say, your comment will be deleted. xoxoxo
