Remember the original mormon-dot-org website that told member stories – albeit whitewashed versions? There’s a new site growing that builds on that idea, but this time with transition stories: wasmormon.org – a collection of mormon faith transition stories. The site mission is to destigmatize doubt and normalize those who leave the mormon church by providing a platform for all to tell their own story – it’s about owning our story.
Each of us has an important, interesting and valid story. Participate and share your feelings, beliefs and experiences with the community. It’s easy: just register, optionally upload an image and write a little about yourself and your journey. There are even prompts to follow. Come back to it later to add more or change it as needed. Share it with those you want to see it and stand proudly with others.
Telling your own story and learning about others’ experiences are both therapeutic. Be part of improving the harmful stigma around doubt in mormon culture. Or just check out the stories -they speak for themselves at wasmormon.org/profiles/. A collection of post-mormon, ex-mormon, liberal, unorthodox and even faithful mormon stories.
