Exmormon Foundation Board Members

Heidi Alsop

Foundation President


Heidi was born and raised in the church. She converted her high school sweetheart, Tom, who got baptized, served a mission, and then they married six weeks after he returned from his mission. Tom and Heidi have five sons, the oldest of whom served a mission in England from 2010-2012. In June 2012, Tom confessed to Heidi that he no longer believed the Mormon Church to be God.s true church. Heidi was devastated, and cried for about a week, and then she went on a quest to prove her husband wrong and bring him back to the church. Tom suggested that Heidi could always "Come to the dark side", but Heidi proclaimed, "No way! I'm a Jedi!"

As she studied each of his issues in order to correct his flawed thinking, she discovered the ugly underbelly of the church to which she had devoted her life. In short order, Tom and Heidi threw out their garments, stopped going to church, and never looked back. Tom and Heidi are known in many Ex Mormon circles as twojedis and sithlord. Their exit from the church played out very publicly, and was far from quiet; causing a big splash in their local ward. Tom was on the Stake High Council at the time of his exit, and Heidi held three callings. Tom and Heidi resigned from the church along with three of their children in February 2013. They reside near Portland, Oregon.
