When you first stumble upon concerning information about the Church or your spouse comes to you with what feels like an explosive bomb sharing their newfound or unspoken disbelief…it can feel incredibly isolating. I KNOW that gut punch well. At the beginning of our journey, I WISH SO BADLY someone provided me with insight that there are others….A LOT of others going down this rabbit hole of grief, liberation, heartache, and inquisition as they try to redefine what their relationship will be like with the LDS religion.
If you don’t know already, there IS a community. This community involves some of the MOST BRILLIANT, KIND, AND THOUGHTFUL PEOPLE I’ve ever met. And with this community comes resources, answers and hope — ALL AT OUR FINGERTIPS!
The beautiful thing about this rabbit hole that many of us find ourselves in, is it’s different for everyone. You, and no one else, gets to put the time and energy into figuring what peace looks like for you and your family. There isn’t a one-size-sits-all solution. There are hundreds of podcast featuring different opinions, perspectives and information. What resonates for some won’t for others. So, rather than sharing only what I find is helpful, I did some research and pulled together the podcasts I have either personally listened to or have heard from reputable sources that these podcasts are good and insightful.
