Love you two!

I just love you two! You have great chemistry and I feel like I am listening to conversation between me and some of my close friends. There are so many of us out here that love the gospel with our whole hearts but need reminders that we grow when we wrestle and rely on personal revelation. I love the idea of “well-examined, tested” faith and that is what you guys foster. Keep it up. We aren’t going to bring about any change in the church if everyone jumps ship. You are helping LDS women create space for nuance in our high demand faith tradition.

Episode 139

Thank you so much for talking about hurdles at church. I am a big fan who listens to every episode but this one allowed me to cry and find some release of the emotions I have been feeling at church. I too was released 6 months ago from the RS Presidency and not given another calling. When asking for answers the RS President refused to talk to me about it. God told her that I “needed to be ministered to and not do the ministering”, she reassured me that she prayed about whether she needed to be released too and the answer was no. I asked why I wasn’t allowed to receive personal revelation about my calling like her. She has refused to talk to me ever since. Now RS doesn’t feel safe to me and it’s a big hurdle.

Very uplifting and insightful!

I love listening to the conversations here! It makes me feel hopeful and also helps me understand the world I was born into. Great podcast!
