Sister Sarah is a pseudonym. For the sake of safety and to experience the freedom to write without worry of a family split, I have created Sister Sarah to talk about my experiences in the Mormon church growing up, as a teenager, and the experiences of having 90% of my relatives being actively Mormon or non-participating Mormon.
While Sister Sarah and her friend are novelized versions of myself, Sister Sarah represents the old soul in me. Her friend is the actual me. Where Sister Sara lives, her relatives, her husband, and even her cat, Georgia, are all composites. Meaning, details have been changed to protect them and any real situations I may address on this blog.
Her day-to-day situations are fictional, but when she talks about the Mormon church, family, or friend situations, those are real with, as I said, some details changed to protect the innocent or guilty.
I debated about explaining Sister Sarah, and going with the concept of two mes, but what I desire is trust from you. If my identity came out later, you would be crushed to discover that Sister Sarah and her world were merely composites of my life and me. I don’t want to deal with hurt feelings, and instead, choose to explain my need for privacy and to assure you that I am not suffering from Multiple Personalities.
I want you to enjoy the experience of learning truth through everyday living. The town I live in, who I am, and who I want to be are mixed into these blogs like a jigsaw puzzle. I also want to bring to light that Mormonism is a cult, not another denomination of the Christian church. They are no more Christian than the Westboro Baptists are actually Baptist. They are also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I encourage former and current Mormons to join me here as they see life through the eyes of Sister Sarah and her friend.
I also welcome discussion.
