This is a true story. It is described according to my own recognition and understanding of the events, people and places depicted herein. Some events or characters have been consolidated for the sake of fluidity while others have been studiously cloaked in order to hide their true identity. Life is long and constantly evolving. People are inherently good. They do not deserve to be haunted by ancient, outwardly perceived follies.

While I do speak openly about my own experience within the LDS, or Mormon, faith, I am not a representative for the LDS church, or an authority on its doctrine.

Almost all of the names in this story have been changed. If you recognize yourself, and I didn’t change your name, it’s probably because I forgot what your name was in the first place.
