Welcome back to Generation Cult and Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2023 with this episode about Jolyn, who grew up in the Mormon Church. Download the full episode now on any of your favorite podcast platforms!
While Jolyn’s experiences weren’t as extreme as some of the other stories we’ve had here, she describes a sort of “whisper campaign” she experienced as an unenthusiastic member who then left, and the harm that even subtle group pressure can do.
After experiencing upheaval in her family involving the criminal justice system, Jolyn — now a trauma recovery coach — wrote a recently-released guidebook about recovering from trauma. Trauma Recovery: A 90-Day Guidebook to Building a Great Life After Trauma is available on Amazon.
Join Dhyana and Ashlen as they chat with Jolyn about her life, work and leaving the church.
