Sue Emmett
Foundation Vice President
Sue was a faithful member of the church for 50 years. After receiving her Bachelor's degree from BYU, she followed the traditional LDS path of marriage in the temple, and mother to seven children, whom she considers her greatest accomplishment. Devoted all the extra hours she had to service in the church, and was called to just about every executive or teaching job a woman can have over the years. Began to have doubts about the authenticity of the church 20 years before leaving, but it was a slow process, and a bi-polar sort of journey, as she stored information and some of her critical thinking skills away while raising her children. Fortunately, those skills were always simmering under the surface, more than ready to grab and devour the next piece of research. Divorcing after 34 years and empty-nesting about the same time propelled her to "open the cupboard" and let it all fall out. A year and a half later, she left the church, and discovered the online Exmormon community -- something that was invaluable at the time. She has served as president of the Foundation once before, and as chair of the annual Exmormon Foundation conference for the past eight years.

Sue Emmett Church vs. State Issues in the Military, Congress and our Public Schools. Is Mormonism lining up with the Fundamentalist and Dominionist intrusions occurring in these institutions?
Sue grew up in Portland, Oregon in a very devout, deeply involved Mormon family. Gr.Gr.
...
Sue graduated from BYU with a degree in Psychology, but instead of building a counseling career, she married in the temple and became the mother of 7 children. She served in every leadership and teaching position available to women, but the cognitive dissonance hanging over her head was like a permanent appendage. After a 34-yr. marriage, Sue divorced. A year and half later, she made the difficult decision to leave the church cold turkey. One Sunday she was teaching R.S., and by the time she left the building that day, she knew she was walking out permanently. Shortly after that, a new friend introduced her to Exmormon.org, which was the only game in town at that point. It was like throwing a life ring to a drowning person! Sue is president of The Exmormon Foundation, and Chair of this years Conference.
