Reconstructing Faith Blog Series: Call for Submissions #ReconstructingFaith

For some members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a faith crisis transforms them and their perspective, but they stay actively engaged in the Church. For others, a faith crisis leads them on a different path, and reconstructing faith may include a new faith community or an independent spirituality.

We would like to hear the stories of reconstructing faith from women and gender minorities across the Mormon continuum. With respect for all spiritual journeys, if you have gone through a faith/certainty crisis and have made efforts to re-build your faith, what has that looked like? Have you had a lusterware moment where old beliefs shattered, helping you identify beliefs of greater personal value? What has sparked your spiritual curiosity? What new traditions have you explored? Have any teachers or resources helped you? What old traditions or texts have become dear to you in new ways? What have you had to let go of in order to make space for new growth?

For this series, you can submit a guest post here for full posts (typically between 600-1200 words). You can also submit a shorter response focusing on one aspect of reconstructing faith (under 300 words) to be published alongside other snippets. Email snippets to Katie Rich at KatieOnTheBlog at gmail dot com. Include your real name, the name you would like to use on the blog, and a brief (1-2 sentence) bio. Please submit by February 14, 2022, to participate in the launch of this series.
