Current Reads: Why I Left the Mormon Church and Came Back

"No matter where we are in the world - regardless of race, gender, age, or circumstance - we are all searching for something. Everyone is looking for the answers to life's questions. Everyone is looking for love, for happiness, to feel whole, to feel important and valued, to feel like they're not alone."
 - Haleigh Everts

It's not often that I enjoy a book so much that I read it within a couple of days, so it seemed natural to want to share about it here on my little piece of the internet! I love any chance I can get to listen to (or in this case, read about) someone's life story, and I absolutely loved getting to know Haleigh's story through her book, Why I Left the Mormon Church and Came Back. 

Throughout the entire book, Haleigh writes in present tense, which paints such a vivid picture of what her perspective and thoughts were at that particular time in her life. From heartache to hope, her honesty and vulnerability in telling her story was incredibly refreshing. 

 As a member of the LDS faith myself, I cannot express enough how empowering it is to get an inside view of someone else's personal journey of conversion in the church, and to see how alike we all are in our thoughts and feelings, no matter how different our paths may look. 

I loved reading this story of strength and renewal of faith, and would absolutely recommend it to anyone out there! Whether you have had doubts about your faith or not, it is a great read for everyone.

You can find the book here and here, and can follow along with Haleigh's life on her Instagram, right here
