Kattie and Allan discuss their experience at the Thrive Conference in SLC. A full day of growing, healing, and community. Kattie expected to be uncomfortable at a post-Mormon conference, but was pleasantly surprised at many of the positive experiences she had as well. Allan expected to feel right at home, but was surprised when he also experienced some difficult moments to go along with the positive.
Stick around at the end for a silly little parody song about Mixed Faith Marriage and Kattie and Allan performed at the Thrive Karaoke Night!

You both sing beautifully. Loved it.
Wow guys!! I think we have found the new Marriage on Tightrope theme opener. Allan, your heart has grown 10 sizes bigger.
I wonder if the sense of non-belonging stems from the church programming that only the TCOJCOLDS is the one and only true organization on earth. I can’t say.
The truth is we belong everywhere.
Recently, I too had to hit snooze on the negative feeds against Mormonism. It doesn’t deserve that level of hate and animosity. It’s people are more caring towards LGBT than most I know in general. The world in general is progressing and the church along with it. Truth is we belong to the universe… and as Eckhart Tolle would say we are the universe experiencing what it is like to be human. We only hurt each other as we return pain for pain, we can offer love for love instead.
I’m beginning to wonder if I should stop my habit of leaving a comment with every post, but you guys are awesome. It’s nice to see a (mix-faith) marriage Thrive.
Never stop leaving comments =) We love seeing them!
