Janie, you have such a beautiful family. And it's growing. Growing in numbers and growing up. it was fun to visit your blog today. Best wishes.

So I'm wondering... do you find this helpful? I left faith behind quite a few years ago (not Mormon), and now this kind of "outreach" seems rather pointless to me. I don't believe, I don't miss the belief, and I don't have any emotional reaction left when someone tries to sway me one way or the other. I'm just not interested. There are too many other questions about life that seem so much more pressing.

Not trying to be obnoxious, so I hope it doesn't come across that way. Just curious.

Can't wait until your baby is finally "born"! I've been reading those posts with a lot of interest.

I don't know that it helps me at this point. I'm creeping out of the anger phase and getting to the eye opening exhilarating part. But I think it would have helped me at earlier points - there were so very few I could talk to - and an even smaller number that reached out to me.

It was enlightening/disheartening to realize the vast majority don't think about or care to think about the questions that have been eating away at me for a long time.

But that is ok, I am ok.
