My Personal Exodus Journal holds various accounts of my moving away from Christianity into another direction. One of the more important posts is  My First Year Truly with No Christmas.

I also plan to go back in time to the day when I remember conversing with people in a scripture study group and decided to no longer call myself a Christian. The first thing I thought was “what are other people going to think?” That was about four years ago now. Look for that and other stories of evolving faith.

A Summary of my Faith Change

Much of the path I am on is similar, to the Christian faith into which I was born because I still study from the same scriptures I always had. However, this path I am now is in some ways is vastly different. I especially noticed some grieving in regards to giving up Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc. However, it’s more than that. I tell this tale in  My Personal Exodus.
 
Also, I decided to stop complaining so much because I recall what happened to the Israelites who complained in the desert. Some of them, if not many of them, lost their lives from complaining. Therefore, I also started my personal Many Thanks and Praises journal.

It was a long time coming. I had changes I needed to make — and ones I still need to make. This chronicles my ups and downs on the road to finding happiness. Much of this includes leaning on my faith during hard times. In addition, I have had many spiritual epiphanies every time one door closes and another opens.  View a complete directory of this Be Happy Still blog on the home page. Otherwise, enter here to read

From the first day I decided to no longer call myself a Christian until now, I have faced many trials and temptations. Grief has also overcame me as I begin to let go of traditions I always knew and loved. This section is about finding myself while in my personal Exodus.  Start reading here

Since I know that some of the Israelites diet for complaining during times when we probably would have thought they had every try to, I made it one of my vows for this coming year to write down my thanks and praises. Focusing on the positive is one way to keep from staying depressed and have the peace, joy and happiness that we could all have. Go here for more inspiration.
