    BONUS—Living at the Edge of Inside, featuring Jeralee Renshaw

    "While there are things I love about the organization, and most especially the people and community, I also see the messiness, the warts, and I see some very real pain and damage in it all. And so here I am today, living at the edge of inside." In this special bonus, Jeralee reflects on her faith journey and the lessons she's learning along the way, sharing an adaptation of her presentation from the ALSSI Fall Gathering, October 2022.

    When Women Are The Problem

    When Women Are The Problem

    Are women complicit in their own marginalization within the Church? In their Season 5 finale episode, Cynthia and Susan unpack the idea of complicity, and some obstacles to overcoming it. It’s an itchy topic with no easy answers. But the real focus of the conversation is a call for women to support other women as a necessary first step to change. If we can’t allow for different experiences, and sit with each other in that difference, can we truly love one another?

    Meeting Your Feminist Self, Part 2

    Meeting Your Feminist Self, Part 2

    In this Part 2 episode, more Latter-day Saint women share stories of personal feminist awakenings. It's hard to shake the unsettling realizations once we begin to see through a feminist lens at church. For these episodes, Cynthia and Susan asked listeners to talk about their feminist journeys. Do you think about things today the same way you did 5 or 10 years ago? If not, what has led you to see things differently? And what are the implications for your faith life going forward?

    Meeting Your Feminist Self, Part 1

    Meeting Your Feminist Self, Part 1

    There are probably as many versions of a feminist awakening as there are feminists. Some have always felt aware of the disparity between men’s and women’s experiences and opportunities. For others, the awareness has come more recently. Either way, it’s hard to shake the unsettling realizations once we begin to see through a feminist lens at church. For this episode, Cynthia and Susan asked listeners to talk about their personal feminist journeys. Do you think about things today the same way you did 5 or 10 years ago? If not, what has led you to see things differently? And what are the implications for your faith life going forward?

    This Is Your Brain On Church—A Conversation with Jill Evans Opdahl

    This Is Your Brain On Church—A Conversation with Jill Evans Opdahl

    Language is powerful. The words and phrases we use repetitively in church create well-worn pathways in our brains. Each time we think in a certain way, practice a certain task, or feel a certain emotion we strengthen and grow that pathway, making it easier for our subconscious to find again and again. Whether it’s hearing male pronouns associated with deity or studying scriptural records written by and about men, without conscious effort there’s a good chance we’re reinforcing ideas about gender roles every time we sit through a lesson, hear a talk, or sing a hymn. In this conversation, Jill Evans Opdahl joins Cynthia and Susan to talk about the implications of “our brains on church,” and consider the challenges and rewards of adding new pathways to our old ways of thinking.

    Revisiting the Mother Tree — A Conversation with Kathryn Knight Sonntag

    Revisiting the Mother Tree — A Conversation with Kathryn Knight Sonntag

    In her book, The Mother Tree: Discovering the Love and Wisdom of Our Divine Mother, author Kathryn Knight Sonntag wrote, “Further exploration of the Mother is part of the unfolding Restoration in our hearts.” Today many women are feeling led to explore the divine feminine more deeply, or for the first time, in an effort to erase the separation that has existed between Latter-day Saints and our Heavenly Mother. In Episode 113, Kathryn shares insights and ideas gleaned from her personal research and experiences. It's a conversation about creating wholeness and healing the mother wound in our theology.

So grateful for this podcast!

I’ve been bingeing a bunch of episodes and they’ve all resonated with me in some way. I feel seen and understood. Thank you for helping me with the process of staying!

Life changing

Cynthia and Susan have been companions with me during my times of “holy discomfort” you are an answer to a prayer I didn’t even know how to utter. Wow that sounds mellow dramatic, but just know I can’t stop listening and I await new episodes.
Your friend, (I’m sure we would be friends in real life)

My Favourite Podcast Ever

This podcast helps me find reasons to stay in my faith and feel like I'm not alone. Its amazing to finally hear from likeminded women and have new things to think about and change in my own faith journey. I feel like Susan and I are the same person sometimes and I love that both her and Cynthia have so many good things to say about experiencing life in the church as an assertive woman.
