Mitzi (of Mitzi and Scott interviewed in Episode 24) was gracious to return to the podcast for an interview alone as she and Dr. Kristy Money discuss her sexual history, how her sexuality was immature growing up in the Church and the importance of exploring and focusing on her own needs, as often in our culture men’s sexuality takes center stage in relationships.

It’s normal to worry that when your family finds out where you’re at in your faith journey, they might think it happened because you were lazy or didn’t study enough when really the opposite is true: you studied church history *in depth*. Understandably, you don’t want them to think you are lazy, or didn’t study enough, or are being led by Satan. How much, then, do you tell them about what you learned? How much do you risk straining the relationship? Do you try to tell them...

How do you tell your parents about your change of beliefs in a way that's respectful and constructive, especially since they live nearby? They'll know people in your ward, have questions, ask your kids about going to church, so putting them off isn't a long-term solution. Julie asked that question tonight and you won't want to miss what we go over together: her backstory, the nuts-and-bolts of when and how to do it, addressing concerns like wanting them not to worry about you and hoping not to...
