I was raised Presbyterian and left the church on the day of my confirmation at about 14 yo. I had been waiting to hear the "rest of the story", the mysteries of salvation - and it turned out there was no more in that church. I felt very strongly there was meant to be more from reading the Gospels. Our church was also very social and did not take theology very seriously.
I joined a "Guirdieff" group, studied the Tibetan book of the dead and you-name-it. Finally I attended Unity as a spiritual support even tho it seemed "wishy-washy" (whatever works for you..).
I met a wonderful man - RC but somewaht estranged from it. We couldn't marry in the RC church as I'd been married before and would have to have a major annullment (even tho I was married by a follower of Maher Baba and my agnostic ex-husband had left me).
He suggested we attend the Orthodox church. We both felt having the same faith and church was crucial. I'd visited an Orthodox church as a child as my best friend was Greek. I didn't know one could convert!
We both knew it was the answer, and the more I studied the more amazed I was that this ancient church answered all my objections to the prostestant doctirne I'd grown up with.
That was 4 years ago and we were married in the Church, and attend a Greek Orthodox Church. We struggle somewhat for acceptance as converts - ours is a rather ethnic church. We are grateful for the Church in so many ways.
