New Materials and Partial Mormon Stories Archive

We have a new LIBRARY tab. On that tab you will find interviews and essays on various aspects of the LDS faith. We were recently given permission to host a sub-selection of the Mormon Stories interview podcasts. We are very thankful for the opportunity to host these. They are a wonderful resource. We will also start posting essays written for the site, and links to other useful resources.

We will soon add a new series of interviews called “Why I Still Believe.”  These will be interviews with people who have gone through their own personal faith crisis and found ways to rebuild their faith and integrate back into the LDS community.  There is no going backwards after we experience our crisis, but many move forward into a more rich and mature relationship with God and the Church.  There is no one single “right” way to do this when one chooses this path.  It is helpful to see how others approach the challenge.

    We have permission to host the episodes that are in the library section. Those have not been edited. I’m not sure if that is what you meant, but wanted to make that clear. We did not change the material.

    John Dehlin decided a little while ago to rethink his position on issues of faith, and became concerned that his interviews were damaging to people. He pulled everything offline. He was kind enough, after a period of time, to let us host some of the material we mutually agreed was helpful and promoted faith. Out of respect for his wishes and his work, we host only a selected list of the material.

    Is John’s “Why They Leave” presentation going to be available?

    I tend to doubt it GDTeacher.

    God bless you for bringing these Mormon Stories episodes back John! I’m getting the word out now.

    And I agree that your “Why They Leave” presentation is a “must”! That was, IMO, the best Mormon Stories episode ever done – and not at all faith destroying.

    It was a good, thoughtful, and sensitive overview of the issues nothing more.

    I would also like to see the interviews of the family members of the gay youth that committed suicide. (that may have been hosted on another site, admittedly)
