Linda's story continues where it left off - confronting her Mormon bishop over the treatment she and her children had received for years after the tragic death of her husband.  She shares how God comes after her personally after over 50 years in performance-based religion and the gratitude and joy of having all of her children also eventually leave and come to faith in Jesus.  She concludes the episode with personal, straight-from-the-heart words for others who might be where she once was, trapped and tired in performance-based religion.

Linda Baldwin shares her journey through a wonderful life as a Mormon wife and mom till tragedy took her husband. Her world turned upside down, she struggled to measure up, and felt the judgment leveled at both her and her kids within her performance-based religion.  In part 1 we get to her breaking point - a devastating decision toward her son by church leadership.  This one is not for the faint of heart.  But there is lots of courage from this fierce single-mom and lots of hope and healing in part 2.

This is a sometimes jarring episode as Melanie continues sharing her story of abuse, abandonment, running from God and then back to HIm and how God used grace from various places to bring restoration to her broken life.  Join Lynn and Joel as they laugh and grieve with Melanie as she shares part 2 of her story.  The show notes include links to documentation that abuse, both sexual and emotional, is too often part of performance-based religion, as well as resources to help bring healing.

Melanie has an amazing story of searching, doing it on her own in performance-based religion, losing everything, walking away from God and finding her life restored in Jesus when she surrendered it all back to Him. When she deserved and expected God's scolding and wrath she got a hug instead. Listen, be encouraged, laugh with us and experience a grace that heals.

So excited to have Joe and Katie (Wilder) Warren back on the podcast this week. Joe Warren served in the same mission as Micah Wilder (Katie's brother) and was hugely impacted when Micah came to Christ and shared his testimony of Christ while still on his Mormon mission.  In this episode we hear more of Katie's transition from faithful LDS to follower of Jesus, and how God draws both Katie and Joe to Himself and then to each other.  It is a story of love, loss and the joy of a life committed to Jesus, and a great chance to get an inside look at Katie and Joe Warren of Adam's Road Ministry.

This is a very touching and moving final episode to this series of episodes featuring Agusta's story.   All three of us, Agusta, Lynn and myself were in tears at the end, but it was a holy movement full of wonder at God's grace in all our lives, but especially Lynn and Agusta's.

Agusta continues to tell her fascinating story and her pursuit of "it."  God finally revealed this missing piece and Agusta immediately knew when she had found "it."  Dan also had an encounter with grace, and once again their lives radically changed.  It wasn't long before they suffered tremendous loss - job, friends, status - and some incredible hurt from the people that once were their closest friends.  It's a humorous and stirring episode of courage and trust in God in the midst of trial that inspires hope when life gets really rough.
