Easter is going to be radically different this year as we stay at home and shelter in place. We are more likely to celebrate it in comfy clothes and fuzzy slippers than hats and high heels. Nevertheless, Easter is where we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and that is the focus of this episode. Easter inaugurates a whole new covenant - a new way for people to relate to God. It brings to an end life under the Old Covenant, characterized by death and condemnation which was a mere shadow of what we have now. Lynn shares how much she misunderstood about Jesus and the Old and New Covenants during her 30 years as a faithful Mormon, and how her new understanding and relationship with Jesus has transformed her life. Do you know someone needing a message of grace and hope? Share this episode with them as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the hope of new life that nothing, not even COVID-19, can take away. https://unveilinggracepodcast.com/

In this episode Joel and Lynn talk about how grace and the presence of Jesus changes the way we respond and cope when our normals are shattered by the chaos of something like the Coronavirus.  Lynn talks candidly about the contrast between how she would have responded as a faithful member of the LDS Church versus how she has responded now, and the peace that being in relationship with Jesus brings to times of tragedy (her own mother died in a previous flu pandemic). God can work everything for our good, and disruptions can actually lead to greater depth in our relationship with God and others.  Join them this week for encouragement for troubled times and experience a grace that heals.  https://unveilinggracepodcast.com/

Teresa continues her story of what it took to break free from the cycle of abuse she experienced inside her performance-based religion of Mormonism. It's a heavy and at times heart-breaking episode, yet filled with encouragement as she relates how her relationship with Jesus has brought freedom, healing and joy because she is a beloved daughter of God. Her's is a story of a lot of brokenness and bad choices, but ultimately God was working through her circumstances to bring both her and her husband back to Himself. Due to time constraints the radio version is edited, but the full version is available on www.UnveilingGracePodcast.com

Teresa's Mormon ancestry predates Brigham Young, and like so many we've interviewed who have grown up in performance-based religion, her LDS past is laced with shame and emotional and sexual abuse. In this episode, Teresa draws on both her personal experience and professional expertise to expose the cycle of abuse and explain why it is so easily and frequently perpetuated.  This is a tough episode but a necessary one, for without understanding and awareness it will be difficult to find freedom and healing from abuse. Our hope is that through Teresa's story, many will, like her, be able to find and experience a grace that heals.

Randy was a multi-generational Mormon from a very faithful devout family. If the religion required it, they did it, and Randy was no exception. So why doesn't a nearly perfect Mormon man go on his mission? Randy's story is fascinating and funny as he talks about how a young woman who came through his military checkpoint caught his eye and captured his heart. God would use her and his very dedicated LDS father to open his eyes to the truth about his childhood religion. Join us for a fast-paced and engaging interview with Randy as he transitions from full-on performance to experiencing a grace that heals. Part 1 of 2.

Listening to Scott's upbeat and grateful heart you would never know that at one point in his journey he put a loaded gun to his head. Feeling beaten down by performance-based religion and having been told by one of his religious leaders that his son's recent car accident was God punishing him (Scott) for not being a full tithe payer, he figured ending his life was his best way out. Providentially, God showed up that day and Scott is alive to share his story of God's pursuit and grace with all of us.

This week the spiritual roller-coaster continues. Last week we ended with Brian's life being miraculously spared after being held hostage with a gun to his head. This week he and Maria talks about how God used this to awaken him spiritually and how God showed up in a very real and personal way and where they are at right now after Brian being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. It's a penetrating and eye-opening look at how performance-based religions sabotage our ability to connect personally with a God who loves us, and how that God brings joy and answers in the midst of deep confusion, searching and pain.

On a loading dock, arms duck-taped behind his back and a gun to his head, Brian was sure his life was over. But God had other plans for his life and used this incident to bring about a spiritual awakening. It's an amazing story of a life lived in performance-based religion that takes a deadly turn, but in the end shows God's care, conviction and divine intervention in Brian's life. It's a moving, breath-taking episode that exposes our hearts to the biggest questions of life and a God who is there to answer them.

Justin and Amy were faithful LDS, not without some questions but moving toward being sealed in the LDS temple. Then her ex-husband took their two sons and held them for seven months. In the middle of this traumatic time God showed up and what they experienced started their transition away from performance-based religion into a grace and peace-filled relationship with Jesus. At the time of the recording they were less than a year into transition and shared candidly about life and faith. They also have practical advice for anyone that may be looking into transitioning away from their performance-based religion.
