The Sacred Groves Network is a gathering of stories of people who are leaving, or have left, Mormon traditions...but have found life, and freedom from the burden of religion through a genuine encounter with the living Jesus Christ. The name "Sacred Groves" hearkens back to the story of Mormonism's founder, Joseph Smith, who claimed to have an encounter with God in a "sacred grove" near his home. Today, many people from Mormon traditions are struggling with Smith's truth claims, and are seeking answers to the question, "Is Mormonism really true?" They, too, are seeking an answer from God. Here, we share some of those compelling, and often moving stories, in order to communicate the good news that there is abundant life available in Jesus Christ...apart from the traditions of Mormonism.
