daughters of mormonism


Several months ago I heard about a new podcast called Daughters of Mormonism. The podcast was created by a woman named Sybil who wanted to explore women's issues in the LDS Church. Sybil says "the hope of this podcast is to give voice to our experiences, our issues, our lives, as Daughters of Mormonism. In my view, any woman who has been a part of the Mormon culture or religion, whether she still participates or not, is part of this group I call the Daughters of Mormonism."

After listening to the first few episodes, I knew I wanted to be involved with this project. Sybil was looking for panelists to join group discussions, so I contacted her. She was in Utah at the time, so we were able to meet up and share our stories. In May, we did our first panel discussion on the Divine Feminine. There have been several other panels since then I haven't been able to participate in but we have many more in the works.

Sybil has also done an interview with the panelists to tell our individual stories. These amazing women each have a unique and interesting story to tell. Sybil and I chatted back in June and today my interview was posted. You can listen to it at Daughters of Mormonism or download it on iTunes. Check it out!

  3. Even though we have already talked about all of this stuff it was so great to listen to. I especially really loved what you said about women needing to educate themselves abut childbirth.
