We're here to help those who want to leave polygamy, for them to realize it's been done and they're brave enough. We also want to shed light on what is happening in our neighborhoods in Utah. Polygamy is no longer something that was in the past. They hide in plain sight., they dress just like you and me.
FLDS- Doyle Dockstader Part II
In this second part of Doyle Dockstader’s episode we get into some topics that most people will not discuss. Trauma, abuse, criminal behavior and substance abuse are a heavy topic, but Doyle was willing to share his story. He left the FLDS at the young age of 12, living on the streets, turning to substances and then criminal behavior. He opens up about serving time in prison and what he was able to learn from his trauma and behaviors. He is a testament that you can come from the bottom and get to the top! “I’m flipping the script I’m not going to be a victim, I refuse to be a victim….I’m a SURVIVOR I win and I’m going to continue to win!”
FLDS- Survivors Podcast
We were lucky enough to have Doyle Dockstader in our studio for a two part episode to discuss trauma, suicide, substance abuse & criminal behavior. Doyle left the FLDS when he was 12 years old, making him one of our youngest guests to leave a polygamist group. He gets vulnerable and raw about having to grow up fast and that included getting into drugs and criminal activity. He shares with us in this episode some great motivational words and is an example that hard work and not giving up pays off!
FLDS- Worth Bistline
We had the pleasure of having Worth Bistline call in to do an interview about growing up as a young man in the FLDS. He has an interesting view as he grew up with Rulon Jeffs as prophet and the gradual transition to Warren Jeffs becoming the leader of the FLDS. He has a lot of insight regarding the transition and especially as a young man coming into the priesthood of the FLDS. Thanks again to Worth for sharing his story and we hope his ending words of wisdom can help as many people as they go through this crazy thing called life!
The Apostolic United Brethren (AUB)- Arturo Jessop
We had the pleasure to speak to Arturo Jessop, who’s story is vastly different then the other stories we’ve shared. In previous episodes we discuss how racism plays a big part in most of the polygamist groups. Well in the AUB they allow two other races, Mexicans and Native Americans. Arturo’s family comes from Mexico. As he tells his story you’ll see how the AUB converts from the communities in Mexico.
FLDS- Carlyn Stubbs Jr.
Carlyn is a young man who grew up in Southern Utah where the FLDS isolated many years ago. He came in the studio to share his story, not of misery but of truth! He did everyhting he could to please his father and become a worthy Priesthood man. We dive deep into what it is like to be a young man in the FLDS group. Carlyn reminds us to not let the bad things in life continue to make us miserable.
The Apostolic United Brethren(AUB)- Leah-Georgina
Leah left the AUB polygamist group in 2010 as a young adult! Leah has been featured in the TV show Escaping Polygamy. She shares her story with us and what it was like to be a young women in the AUB group. We get into the politics of the AUB and how the church is run so closely to the LDS church.
