Crystal Escobar has spent the last decade learning who she is as a mother, a wife, friend, blogger, woman and Mormon. After much time soul searching she has realized that in her journey to becoming authentically herself, the religion of her childhood no longer resonates with who she has become. Crystal discusses her transition of faith, the announcement that lost her thousands of followers, and the surprise that was her husband’s own decision to leave the church at the same time.
Crystal is the author of My Life As A Wannabe Balanced Mom, the host of the Wannabe Balanced podcast.
Crystal and I talk about the cultural and social implications of leaving the faith of your family and what it means to live your own truth. We dig into the emotional fallout when you lose your religion, the fear-based search for the “absolute truth,” and how to approach faith conversations with your children when you are still trying to understand your own.
I love Crystal’s vulnerability and reminder to be open to all things.
