On a personal level, my life has been an ongoing search for the Truth. It has been the primary motivational force in my life, along with my love for my family. That search led me into the Church many years ago, and ultimately it led me out. My heart is the same; my desire to ‘choose the right’ unchanged. As I have grown and hopefully matured in my understanding of myself, and the world around me, it has been extremely important for me to maintain an open mind, and always consider the possibility that I could be wrong.
That same attitude prevails today — I am willing to go wherever credible evidence leads. If evidence comes forward that demands I reconsider any or all of my current positions, so be it. I remain ready to correct any errors in my understanding, and get that much closer to the Truth. This approach has given me an inner sense of peace, a broadening of understanding and perspective, that in fact has deepened considerably during the years since I reluctantly came to the realization that the Church wasn’t what I had hoped and prayed for; not what it claimed to be.
I have a brief bio posted on the MormonThink website, for those who are interested:
I also have a small blog with my thoughts on a number of topics that are important to me:
