When you go public with your journey out of Mormonism, be prepared for questions LDS friends will typically ask.

Key Points:

  • Who Offended You?
  • Who Got a Hold of You?
  • Did You Start Reading Anti-Mormon Literature?
  • What Commandment Couldn’t You Keep?
Talk About It
  1. Watch the video together or invite someone to summarize the topic.
  2. What is your initial reaction to this video? Do you disagree with any of it? What jumped out at you?
  3. What questions did LDS friends and family raise when they found out about your journey?
  4. When you were LDS, did you ever raise similar questions to others? What assumptions were you making behind those questions?
  5. Your journey will be different from others, so what role did a personal offense play in your journey from Mormonism – if any?
  6. What role did “anti-Mormon” literature play in your journey?
  7. What do you think is the best way to answer when people raise questions like this?
  8. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
