Do you struggle with knowing where to turn, what to believe, how to feel, and who to trust on your journey out of the Mormon faith?
Don’t go it alone! At Faith After Mormonism, we don’t believe the journey out of Mormonism should be taken alone. The resources on this site are best used in a relationship. A friend or mentor can help you work through your thoughts and feelings by asking good questions and providing a listening ear.
Our mentors can assist in the journey. Some are former Mormons, while others are never-Mormon Christians who just care. All of our mentors are experienced Christians who have been trained in mentoring skills.
You can request a mentor by filling out the application form below. If we have a qualified mentor available, we will connect you. After you submit the form, you will receive an e-mail from us outlining the next steps. (We do not offer any mentoring services to minors.)
Our mentoring is free. You set the agenda and continue the relationship only as long as you find it helpful. You will not be added to a mailing list or be solicited for donations.
