About the Authors
The Unveiling Grace Podcast was born out of the hearts of Joel Groat and Lynn Wilder in 2018. With decades of ministry experiences with followers of the LDS Church and other performance-based religions, Joel and Lynn decided to share the stories of God's love at work in personal and impactful ways in the lives of individuals seeking Him. After 4 years and 200+ episodes, Joel transitioned to another ministry opportunity and Lynn's husband Michael joined the podcast in March of 2023.
Dr. Lynn K. Wilder, retired Professor at Florida Gulf Coast University and once tenured Professor at Brigham Young University, is a former Latter-day Saint now biblical Christian. Because her life has been radically transformed by grace, it is her passion to introduce the many people hurting emotionally and relationally to the God of grace and to share the peace of a grace-filled life.
With a doctorate in education, emphasis in emotional/behavioral disorders, Lynn is a researcher, scholar, journal editor, and author of more than 60 refereed journal publications and 5 books in both her professional field and that of faith. Unveiling Grace (Zondervan, 2013) is her most popular book. Michael (husband) and Lynn founded a Christian ministry (www.unveilingmormonism.com). Featured in Christian publications, videos, and radio, the Wilders frequently travel and speak. The Unveiling Grace Podcast with Joel Groat with IRR.org is truly a heartfelt venture.
