Mormon Stories’ highest priority is helping people through tough Mormon transitions.  We are here to help you.  Until a couple of years ago, John was able to offer individual support to people experiencing the life crises that result from faith transitions.  He was able to answer all of his email and make personal phone calls and visits.  Unfortunately, the the number of people in crisis has grown significantly and John finds that he is no longer able to personally keep up with the needs of the community.  He is sad that he can no longer to respond to everyone.

Even so, all are welcome to email John directly at  He will do his best to answer. He is aware, however, that a short note from him will do little to meet your needs.  If you do receive a short answer or no answer at all, please know that he respects your privacy and will not forward personal emails to other members of the Mormon Stories team.  If you would like more support, please let John know that it is okay with you if he shares your needs with others; he will not do so unless you explicitly give him permission.  If you choose to allow him to share, it may be that we can find resources to help you.  Again, please know that John is very sorry that he cannot be there for everyone.

In an effort to respond to the growing need for support, Mormon Stories has created the Mormon Stories Regional Support Communities.  Many have used the communities to find friends in their immediate areas with whom they can authentically share the issues they are struggling with.  We are hopeful that support can be found and lasting friendships can be made.

We also have new projects on the horizon that we hope will assist with the growing demands. A podcast on the subject of dealing with faith crises can be found here

You are not alone….. not even close.  Many are walking in your shoes.

Much Love,

The Mormon Stories Team

    If someone is interested in exploring the continued use of Mormonism after a crisis of faith (aka becoming aware of all the tough issues), we run for that purpose. There is a ton of support material, and forums are available to discuss just about any topic with others who are not going to freak out about your situation.
