Sat, 02/22/2020 - 04:54

Life in a Jack Mormon family in the heart of Utah is never easy. Terri Jo shares the unvarnished reality about the abuse she suffered on several fronts - emotional from her father, social and verbal from kids at school, sexual at the hands of a relative who was a Mormon leader and the downward spiral this put her into through a big chunk of her life. Yet, God was keeping His hand on her and Jesus was calling and when she finally surrendered to His love and grace she found freedom and true love for her own life. It's a raw and moving interview and another story of what it's like to experience a grace that heals.

Sat, 02/01/2020 - 08:55

Randy was a multi-generational Mormon from a very faithful devout family. If the religion required it, they did it, and Randy was no exception. So why doesn't a nearly perfect Mormon man go on his mission? Randy's story is fascinating and funny as he talks about how a young woman who came through his military checkpoint caught his eye and captured his heart. God would use her and his very dedicated LDS father to open his eyes to the truth about his childhood religion. Join us for a fast-paced and engaging interview with Randy as he transitions from full-on performance to experiencing a grace that heals. Part 1 of 2.
