    Sara is sharing her story for the first time from start to finish on this podcast episode. Like many survivors, she has told bits and pieces, but there's always parts that we don't reveal and hold close to us. I hope our listeners grasp how profound this is for Sara! Imagine how much courage this takes.

    Sara also isn't "out" as an exMormon yet! Her faith transition is still very fresh and unfolding. Join us as Sara shares her story.

    "Denise"

    "Denise"

    Our guest for this episode, "Denise" shares her story of abuse. In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints misogyny and patriarchy are common and defended. The church is still against the Equal Rights Amendment and expects its members to fall in line with this shared belief including the unwritten but widely understood expectation to vote against it. This belief and expectation encourages "unrighteous dominion."

    Esteban Lee O'neal Part 2

    Esteban continues his story in part 2. If you've ever wondered what it's like to be born gay within a high demand, conservative religion, listen to Esteban's story. Does the mormon church truly offer its members a better way to live? The cost of being born gay in a church that claims to be the most perfect example of Christianity in the world, can be downright deadly.

    Esteban Lee-Oneal Part 1

    Esteban Lee O’Neal is a beautiful human, a father of three, super gay, and a survivor. He was once a Mormon missionary and believed he could be saved from being gay. The Mormon church and Esteban’s parents forced him into conversion therapy where he watched many friends choose suicide over continuing to suffer for being gay. He contributed to ending conversion therapy in both Colorado and Utah and continues to advocate for people in the LGBTQIA+ community.

    Karly E. Part 2

    Karly E. Part 2

    Karly continues her story in part 2 as her family is divided and the abuse becomes more emotional and psychological. When a child is not believed, telling the truth to adults means a pattern of betrayal that carries an emotional toll throughout our lives. When Karly was not believed as a child the consequences were life threatening and have left her with a lifelong disability. Her resilience is inspiring and we are looking forward to reading her book!
