  1. Spencer, I had to take a little road trip yesterday and while I drive I usually listen to a John Dehlin Podcast and YOU were it! I just wanted you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed hearing your journey from the time you were 3 till present! I have a son close to your age, so your timeframe reminds me of him! I am a convert and became a very strong TBM after being baptized. When my son married in the temple, I did not feel sorry for his father not being able to attend the temple wedding – he KNEW what was required to be there! But, since I was a convert, none of my family could attend either. Since leaving the church myself a few years ago, I have become aware of how judgemental and non-empathetic I was while being a TBM. I’m SO SORRY for the many times I must have been blind to my “better than thou” attitude. I said once that I was not bitter towards the people in my ward but I am towards the upper leadership of the church. I get less bitter as the years go by because I am so glad to be FREE. I like listening to Mormon Stories, they remind me not to be complacent about ALL the lies the church won’t admit to. Yes, the essays are a step but hardly the full truth. I am saddened by all the years that I felt so unworthy to be a member; now I know how unworthy the leadership of this church are! I wish you all the best as you go forward in your life!

  2. Hi, Great interview! Thanks so much. Would you be so kind as to post the links to your sketch website? (I was walking and forgot to note it down) Spencer you are an awesome person. I’m so glad your boys have you as a dad. Thanks for helping heal the world with your authenticity
