Mike is interviewed on A Thoughtful Faith Podcast

Dec 09, 12 Mike is interviewed on A Thoughtful Faith Podcast

I really enjoy a new facebook group that was created by the people at A Thoughtful Faith podcast community. One day when I was browsing their wall and saw a post that they were looking for people to interview.  I quickly suggested my brother Mike.  They took up the offer and interviewed him. This interview is now posted on A Thoughtful Faith website. Here is the link: Athoughtfulfaith.org.

Mike talks about his faith journey and his faith crisis, polygamy, polyandry and moving forward with his faith. We hope you enjoy the podcast!

    • Micah,
      Thank you for speaking with me. I was speaking with Paul tonight and told him that after being completely raw and honest with someone, that an immediate bond is formed. I now feel like I have known you forever. There is something scary about opening up like that on such a public forum, but at the same time, something very healing.

      I pray that my story will help others. Thank you again, Micah. You are doing a great thing.

    • Thanks Kylan. I really cherish our friendship. Glen and I chatted for a bit today. All three of us should hang out when you come into town.

      I am glad you liked the interview.

  3. I really enjoyed this podcast. I love the idea of inoculation. But it got me thinking…one of my children is getting too old for Santa Claus, so I need to have the “Santa” talk, and now I have to talk to my teens about polandry too?! Dang, parenting is not for whimps!

    I just started listening to your podcast and I’m sure I’ll come back and comment later but I had to come and say it’s so fun to hear your voice. When you first started talking I actually yelled YAY out loud. Good thing I’m not in public. Could embarrass myself.

    • Man. Cathy and I just laughed out loud at your comment. Do I sound like an old gray-haired sage now?

      • LOL! your voice sounds just like it did. It was also fun to hear your stories about dating Cathy. I was there a lot of that which made it all the more fun to listen.

        I just got done listening to the whole podcast. I totally enjoyed it. I’m very glad you did that.

        And FYI – My daughters are adopted. I had 60+ miscarriages (at best guess) before I got rid of my uterus. Stupid useless thing! Adoption is AWESOME. Leah is half african american/half caucasion. Hannah is 1/4 aa, 1/4 italian (like sicilian italian – her birthgrandfather is from Sicily), 1/8 vietnamese (her birthgrandmother was born in vietnam but is half herself) – the rest is caucasion, 3/8.

        The racial issues within the church… make my mommy heart ache. I loved the post Paul did about Blacks and the church. It really did give me a foundation I can start with for my children, a line to hang on to. Previously I’d contemplated not going to church anymore and just teaching them at home or leaving altogether because the topic made me crazy.

        Anyway – thanks again!

    Thank you for your insights! It was refreshing to hear your story and see how you have been able to stay active in the church.
