Recently the THRIVE Beyond Religion Foundation has been under attack by the Mormon church’s apologists, the Salt Lake Tribune, some vocal TikTokkers, and a few other Ex-Mormons.  Such attacks have taken a heavy toll on many in the THRIVE Board, and on the THRIVE Community overall.

Please join members of the THRIVE Foundation board of directors this Monday at 9am (mountain) as we ask ourselves and the post-Mormon community whether or not we should allow the THRIVE Foundation to die.

Note: Our heartfelt support goes out to the people of Ukraine.  Please join us Monday afternoon for a special Mormon Stories Podcast episode about Russia’s war on Ukraine.

    I wish there was a Thrive community in the east (Pennsylvania) for ex-Mormons who mainly consist of converts who have not grown up in the church.

    Every attendee is a vote to continue. Money and attendance is far more impactful than criticism from a distance.

    My mother went to the St George event and really appreciated it. Thank-you for all of your efforts with this important work.

    I admit I have never attended Thrive, but if the numbers of attendees are there, and growing, keep it going.

    Personally, I think it is a good thing. If the church is what it claims to be, then why is it worried?

    A lens that may be helpful is the theory of team development developed by Bruce Tuckerman. He identifies five stages that most teams go through- forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning. Much of what was described in the podcast sounds like a team that has moved from forming to storming and is moving toward norming.

    If thrive wasn’t making a difference and helping people that were able to break away from a very deceitful harmful church. You would not get so much push back. Obviously you’re hitting a nerve and The church not only losing members but most of all they’re losing their money that means more to them than anything. That’s why they have tried to hide so much about the truth of the church and how it really was started. Don’t let the bullies push you around hang in there keep helping people, they need you!!!
