Vice Article

Last week, I attended the Hill Cumorah Pageant. Attending any Mormon event turned out to be, as many fellow Post-Mormons can attest, an odd experience. Between the strong nostalgia of remembering the past and the very awkward reality of being the apostate that most Mormons fear, these gatherings really highlight the weird limbo that we all exist in.

I then wrote about my experience for Vice. If you're curious, check it out!

  1. I find it interesting that people like you find it easy to leave the Mormon church, but have a very difficult time leaving it alone. Why is that I wonder?

    1. I found it was hard to leave (family issues etc) but once I did, leaving it alone is pretty easy. Never been happier, a weight off my shoulders, as they say.

  3. Great article pm girl! Thanks for the report.

    @Anonymous - As a former Mormon of 20+ years who has interacted with hundreds of other former Mormons, I don't know anyone who found leaving the LDS Church easy.

  4. That was a fascinating read! I've occasionally considered attending the Cumorah pageant as an ex-mo because of the weird perspective I could get from it. Your insights were thoughtful and compelling.

    1. It was a surprisingly odd experience - and a little bit healing. Although I'm not sure I'll be allowed back in. ;)
