2017: The year of moving on
Happy New Year! Nearly 365 days ago, I branded 2016 as " the year of being adventurous and trying new things. " And in those 12 months, I'd say I succeeded. I don't want to bore you with all the little details, but I will point out 2 things that made 2016 a...

Falling into old habits: dating Mormon guys
Hello! How's everybody doing? The Moho blogosphere has been kinda quiet and uneventful as of late, and I too haven't had much motivation to speak my mind. But it's a quiet Sunday and thought I'd toss out a random story. In my post where I said 'so long' to ...

Why you always gotta justify everything?
Two recent events confirmed to me just how much TBM's love to justify the church. 1) The 32 LGBT Mormons who committed suicide after the new policy . 2) Elder Bednar's comments  that there "are no homosexual members of the church." I've witnessed several TB...

You're taking a break from the church. Now what?
Many of the Moho's I chat with privately have either left the church all together or slowly distancing themselves. I really  struggled on the social aspect  since I stopped attending church. When it was time to branch out and meet new people, I was set on m...
