I don't really have any nagging beef with the church. I just don't buy it anymore. That said, I can't deny the good it's done for me. Mission was hard but refining. The conferences and lessons and principles have taught me important things about relationships, service, preparedness, finances, health and being your best.
How do you replace the good bits? I would leave but I don't want my kids to miss out on the good stuff. I don't want to slowly become less service minded or health focused or family centered. At the same time, I don't want to stay and deal with being a "jack Mormon" or explaining my double standards to my kids. What do you do to replace the self improvement/life lesson good parts??
