TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

If you are LDS, Matt Wilder's story could have been yours.  He was born into the quintessential Mormon family and they did it all: temple trips, scouting, callings, Scripture reading, Sabbath. Yet, by his early teens, his soul was restless with a sense of his own unworthiness and failure to measure up to the high outward standards of his religion. Would his family's move from the Midwest heartland to the heart of Utah in the Salt Lake Valley help him find peace?

Matt recommits to his Mormon faith, but then several events on his LDS mission and while a student at BYU cast light on a different path.  Could this one lead to a sense of being forgiven and accepted by God?
