Communing With Raspberries

This is the cover of a book I'm writing. I thought I'd share the beginning of my book with everyone. It gives more detail of why I started writing and where I'm currently in my life. I hope you enjoy it. All of the pages will be a photo copy, so you will need to click on each picture page to read. As usual, read backwards.

Arizona's Mormon Politics

This heading is linked to azcentral.com and has a very interesting article about the agenda of the Mormon politicians. The article caught my attention when I read the comment about how Mormons want to proselytize in Cuba and use our government to make it happen. Interesting how the majority who commented do NOT want any more Mormons in the elected positions in Arizona. Mormons can't handle it, like during the 2002 Winter Olympic Scandal, when Mormon authorities used their own businesses for bribing the International Olympic Committee, along with sneaking other illegal transactions from its members, to help secure the winter games for its own selfish desires.

"As for other governments and religions, according to Joseph Smith, they "must eventually be destroyed from the earth.""

Mormon Authorities Do It Again

Click on the heading to read about the changes Mormon authorities made to the book of mormon. They didn't want to get into trouble with the black people or the law. Take a read.

The Prophet's Characterization of Himself

"... I will become a smooth and polished shaft in the quiver of the Almighty, who will give me dominion over all..."

About Me

My photo
Michigan, United States
I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.

7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
