Mentors & Support Groups

Support Group

We are beginning a new initiative where we will provide a list of individuals who are comfortable having you contact and seek out their guidance on how to navigate your faith transition while “Leading with Faith”.  Our hope is they can provide the empathy you need while also providing a faithful outlook with positive ways to engage the Church and remain faithful.  This is a fine line.  It is not easy to both deal with the difficult issues and also maintain and even strengthen one’s faith.  The individuals marked with an asterisk are vetted (I personally know them and am extremely confident in their ability to keep the mission of this effort.

(If you wish to be on this list email me at – reelmormon AT gmail dot com  If you have enough people to start a support group let us know.  We want to help ensure that the group stays on a positive note generally and “leads with faith” and we have some ideas to help )

  1. Hello I have struggled with my faith crises for 4 years. I tried to leave the church this past November to February but became so lost and full of anxiety that I had to come back and get my recommend and start wearing my garments again and go to church. I can’t live without the church so I feel there must be a power in the gospel of Jesus Christ or I just can’t cope without what’s been ingrained in me from birth. I don’t like feeling like I have to be Mormon because without it I don’t function well. I don’t want to feel hypocritical like I do when at church. I would like to be a middle way Mormon. But feel so alone and it’s so hard to sort things out and find the peace I so desire! I have seven children and want to teach them goodness and truth. Please direct me to someone that could help me. Thank you!!

  2. I thought you would like to know you misspelled the word “acknowledgement”. Silly mistakes are a pet peeve of mine and they can ruin your website’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.

  3. Today is Fast Sunday. My wife and I aren’t excited to suffer through so many brainwashed testimonies claiming unsubstantiated knowledge . As a child I took certain things on faith. Yet Christ warned of false prophets in which their corrupted vision of sensuality leads away from truth. We’re looking for the real infinite and eternal destiny of man.
