I'm planning on going to their ward.

I don't live there, and I don't want to live there.

As an Arizona resident, if I had my druthers I'd live 115 miles to the north in Flagstaff.

Red-rock Sedona has beautiful Oak Creek Canyon and small-town Prescott has a nostalgic town square.

I know nothing about the Mormon community in Anthem, but it does seem that there is a strong evangelical christian presence in the area. It is just my uninformed impression that Anthem is what the fictional "Stepford" would be like. It does not seem like Anthem has a lot of diversity.
Mr. Benson, you'd be very welcome up here, by the way.

Tucson is the biggest little town in the west.

I lived there off and on from 1951. I would prefer not to ever live there again!

There's an old joke that says if you only have 6 weeks to live, just move to Tucson and it will seem like years.

If I lived in Anthem (or anywhere else on the planet for that matter), I wouldn't be going to 'their ward'. Why does an active church member seek advice from us apostates?

Yeah exactly what azsteve said, why ask us? We don't want to go to a ward of any kind anywhere.
