TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

James and Jolene both came from strong LDS families and faithfully followed the path marked out by their performance-based religion. They lived tranquil lives in a Mormon bubble in Arizona and everything was great, until James, an attorney, could no longer ignore his spiritual discontent or troubling aspects of Mormonism. Jolene, an accountant, likewise was committed to making it work, until she also started noticing some cracks in the wall.  Jolene thinks she has found answers in a Mormon splinter group, but as we end this candid and humorous episode she confesses this only made their marriage and lives worse.  Listen to part 1 of their story here:  https://unveilinggracepodcast.com/

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

Becoming spiritually passive and burned out, I had no fire in me. I began to just go through the motions. Having a whole lot of religion, I had no relationship. ~James

Questions of Joseph Smith, the cornerstone of the religion, and he can’t seem to get his story straight. As an attorney, I’m cross examining him and I’m not just giving him a pass when the story keeps changing. Others questions of plagiarism, CDS letter, polygamy were big issues for me. ~James
