Faith is hard and sometimes it fails us or we fail it, I’m not sure which. Stories of undergoing and recovering from faith transitions are a perennial favorite in the bloggernacle (or jabbernacle for podcasts). In this series I interview the RF permabloggers and let them tell their story. They share what set them off on their journey and what was helpful in recovering. Some remain active some don’t but all of them care deeply for all Mormon people under the broad umbrella of Mormonism.
