I live in Texas. I am the superintendent for a construction company here. I love karaokeing, shooting guns, and riding motorcycles with my wife and kids. My name is Pete and I'm a Mormon.

I take photos of taxis in Manhattan that get used on Deseret News, I'm glad that my iPhone has a pretty good lens, and I'm a Mormon.

I am a relatively wealthy software entrepreneur, family man, and philanthropist who hates taxi ads and YouTube, and I am NOT a Mormon.

I read the Bible daily and have read the Book of Mormon and I am not a Mormon.

My family back seven generations ago were Mormons. They've been kicked out of their English society for converting to Mormonism, sailed across 'the pond' one at a time, died crossing the plains with the Willey Handcart Co., done prison-time for polygamy, sacrificed and raised large families on dry-farms in southern Idaho. They are wonderful, dedicated people; family is tight...

...as long as you remain faithful to the Church. But if you leave on convictions, answered prayer, heavenly visions or Biblical facts, they will be devastated. They will still love you, but they will cry, rant, challenge and/or ignore you. Most will pray for you, still hug you at family reunions, and send Christmas cards. But when the schism occurs, it is deep and wide.

I had a born-again experience with God that changed me forever. Now I hunger each day for God's Word, am satiated each day in His Word. I was Mormon for 35 years. I've been a Bible-only, evangelical for 25 years, (this May). I still love Mormons and will forever be proud of my pioneer heritage and the family that taught me to love God and to seek the truth.

I love the Lord. I love my family. I know I will be with my Heavenly Father and my family for eternity. I bake bread and quilt. I am not a mormon.
