It gives a good synopsis of what our experience was. We were LDS/Mormon for many years. Very active. Lots of years of having questions popping up, then our individual beliefs just didn't mesh well with the church's, so we finally left. The scrutiny we put on the church continued on with religion as a whole, and that's how we ended up atheist :)
We enjoy going to concerts and listening to all types of music, Musical Theater and plays, site seeing, dining out, movies, bowling, and lots of other things. I'm an unpublished writer, and I also enjoy reading.
I have a 22 yo daughter who lives in NC, and a 20 yo son who lives with us here in Springfield while he works on his degree. All Atheists now :)

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
Well done. Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where common sense helped by science is all it really needs to find the freethinking wisdom common to non-believers and critical thinkers like us and now you.
