71: Annika

Annika

Annika’s early church experiences was in a branch where she was the only young woman.  Because of the small size of her branch she was included in the male Priesthood classes as a young woman.  Annika says upon leaving the Mormon faith, “I felt joyous.  I felt free all of a sudden.  I felt like for the first time in my life I didn’t have to judge people.”

Virtual Assistant6-001

Jason Merrill adopted a beautiful African American daughter.  The previous teachings of the church denying black Mormons temple blessings or the priesthood made him question Mormon doctrine.  Jason studied science and the contradiction between his religion and science led him to question God’s existence.  Jason says he lost his faith in God before he lost his faith in the restoration and Joseph Smith.
