This is a page that I wish existed years ago during my own discovery of the LDS Church's truth crisis. Side note: I personally don't like to use "faith crisis" because it implies that the problem is with the individual and not with the institution - which is exactly the case with the LDS Church. However, I also understand the utility of the two words in effectively conveying a complex concept.
You will find links to content, websites, books, podcasts, YouTube channels, therapists/coaches and groups that will make your journey and research so much easier. Look at these resources as "soft landings" that will help you get through and out of the Church's truth crisis intact. Take advantage of them as they're designed by those before you who paved the way for those who followed.
is the best year ever to have a discovery of the LDS Church's truth crisis. I don't say this to be flippant but rather to convey the point that you now have the gift of so many truly amazing and effective resources to navigate this journey because of the hard work and determination of so many amazing people who felt there had to be a better way and they went out there and created it.
A Mormon faith crisis can actually be one of the greatest gifts of your lifetime.
I agree 100%.
Embrace this gift and allow it to unfold and you will find a life of truth, authenticity, exploration, adventure and freedom.
The freedom to think for yourself and to be who you truly are is - as Joseph Campbell wrote - the privilege of a lifetime.
