Kristy sits down with Mette Ivie Harrison, author of National Bestseller “The Bishop’s Wife” (Linda Wollheim Mystery Novel series) and its sequel, “His Right Hand,” on her self-described journey out of Mormon orthodoxy, which she wrote about in the Huffington Post recently. Mette vulnerably talks about the loss of her baby daughter and the subsequent paradigm shift on her faith. She also discusses the importance of doing Mormonism on her own terms to maintain her mental health, particularly how when nobody really knew her she felt pent-up anger/rage that lessened once she revealed her true self to her friends, family, and neighbors. We announce the Rainbow Mormon Initiative–wearing a rainbow ribbon Sundays starting June 5th or knitting/crocheting items for LGBT+ youth–and more specifics on what you can do to be part of this new development.
