Immediately my Mormon family welcomed me back, but this was short lived when doubts and unanswered questions began to resurface in my mind. My parent’s relationship with each other was not good and when my mom died when I was 12 years old, I was left alone most of the time.
If it wasn’t for the Christian friends I don’t know if I would have had the strength to leave Mormonism for good. Chuck – My wife and I were lifelong members in the LDS Church.
We were sealed in the Seattle Temple for all time and eternity as husband and wife.
It wasn’t long and we were on our way to raising a family of 5 children of our own.

Lee – A Former Mormon Bishop – I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I have found many of the most fundamental teachings of the LDS Church to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
As a former Mormon Bishop and member who had served that Church for over 32 years and as one who researched and documented what I have learned, I have come to know the true Lord Jesus Christ and His Grace. Rob – I was born into an LDS home and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah.
In my teenage years, I became disillusioned by the inconsistencies I found within the LDS Church. He too had been raised LDS, but had come to know the REAL Jesus of the Bible.
For many years, I believed that I didn’t need God in my life, but yet I still considered myself a Mormon. Through Rob’s patience and the Holy Spirit’s persistence, I accepted this Jesus into my life and found perfect righteousness in Him! Phillip – Raised Mormon and born with an inquisitive mind, I had many questions about the inconsistencies I saw between Mormon doctrine and practice.
Finally, my search for the truth about God and what He has to offer led me to the REAL Jesus of the Bible. But as a young adult, I fell away because I was unable to live up to all of the Church’s standards. When I questioned the LDS leadership about these problems, I was excommunicated for my “lack of faith,” and disowned by my LDS family.
After I accepted the Lord, I was able to help lead Laura (my future wife at the time) to the Lord. When my new wife, Cheryl, was baptized into Mormonism, I too was reinstated into the Church.
