Brian Tibbets describes his faith journey from devoted Mormon missionary to suic*dal doubter to healed ex-Mormon. He opens up about the shame and lies he felt compelled to tell while hiding his loss of faith, his wife’s manipulation by unethical therapist Jodi Hildebrandt, and the supernatural beliefs that tore his marriage and family apart. Brian shares intimate details about his experiences with Mormon rules around sexuality and how he tested whether sinning really caused loss of the Spirit. Ultimately, Brian found peace and healing after leaving the LDS church, regaining relationships with his kids, and finding a healthier marriage outside Mormonism. His story serves as a cautionary tale about the harm fundamentalist Mormon beliefs can cause.

    The similarities with how Brian’s ex behaved, said/did during their divorce is so similar to my divorce and what my ex did/said to me. Brought all the anger back the surface. This is the Church’s fault entirely for the nonsense they have taught for decades around sexuality and other things like consuming coffee. It’s so bizarre to listen to Brian’s experience and say “Yep, had the same experience.” “Yep, my ex said/did the exact same thing”. How anyone can defend Mormonism is beyond me. It is so deeply damaging.
