Exmormon Foundation 2014 Conference

"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -- Anais Nin

October 10-12, 2014
The Doubletree Suites
Salt Lake City, Utah

Please join us for our annual Exmormon Foundation Conference in October!. Details about the program will be added soon, with information about costs and registration soon after that. It is always our goal to book speakers who present a variety of stories, experience, and scholarship that will provide essential information for people as they transition out of Mormonism.

Please Note: The opinions of all speakers are their own, and do not necessarily represent the official position of The Exmormon Foundation or its representatives. We provide the forum, the speakers provide the content, and you take away what works for your life.



**We are proud to announce that the ExMormon Foundation will be sponsoring a new Campaign in partnership with Will Johnson, the talented videographer who has and is still producing the very popular "I Am An Ex-Mormon" videos. We are honored to donate a financial start to help Will continue on with his interviewing process to assist him to continue to produce new videos. (Please make sure to see his Panel talk from the 2013 ExMormon Conference, make sure to see the end to see what got us motivated! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYOu1M3j1FQ) The response to these have been tremendous and they have helped many people in great conflict about leaving Mormonism behind. Please partner with us and Will in raising the funds to produce many more of these impactful videos. We want people to see that there is "life after leaving". You can be assured that your contribution will bring excellent results!**

Online Message Board Communities

Connect with others in your area who have left or who are in the process of leaving Mormonism. Get the support, friendships and encouragement you need in your post Mormon life. Several discussion boards offer online community for those seeking advice and insights in making the transition to a Post Mormon World.

Post-Mormons are members of a rapidly growing community of families and individuals who have voluntarily left Mormonism.


President's Message

I have been a member of this board for nearly a decade now, but this is my first time as acting President. In this time I have been involved in providing online support to what seemed to be a small fraction of the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who are doubting and then leaving the church. That number has now grown to tens of thousands each year.


The access to information and discussion on the internet has been an "awakening" for the many souls so broken, who had no idea what was actually wrong with them...

Personal Stories

Why I Left
by Richard Packham

I left the Mormon church in 1958, when I was 25 years old.

Why, after all these years, would I still be concerned, then, about Mormonism? Why have I not yet come to terms with that distant part of my past and left it behind?
