I know you probably receive hundreds of letters a day. But I just read "Beyond Mormonism" online. I was just going to skim it, but ended up reading every word. All the feelings you had are exactly the feelings I had when I joined the church. I never got as far in the church as you did, and only went to the temple for baptisms, but I was amazed at how your feelings mirrored mine.

I do not "subscribe" to any church or religion right now, though I consider myself spiritual. But I wanted you to know that your story was amazingly written--so honest and down-to-earth. It brought back a lot of feelings and thoughts I had pushed out of my mind, and I'm grateful to have a chance to mull them over again.

Thank you for sharing your story with everyone. I only wish every Mormon could read it and understand it with the "open hearts" they want everyone to have when hearing about the "truth" of the church. I remember; I used to deny anyone who told me everything was a mess... It's amazing that you've been able to get through to so many people.

Thank you again for your story.




Thanks you somuch for the nice letter. I'm grateful that the book helped you.

If you send me your postal mailing address, I will send you an information pack, a couple of tracts, and a couple of pamphlets.
