About The Mormon Existentialist

I choose not to publicly disclose my identity because I want this blog to be about my message and not about me. My goal is simply to help those who are existential thinkers, whether they know it or not, to stay involved in the church after an inevitable faith crisis.

My hope is that this blog will help you navigate your own faith transition and arrive at a comfortable place. This is also a safe place for devout Mormons looking to better understand or help a loved one in faith crisis.
