Towards Becoming One: May

This month has been intense over here in Strangers No More land!

After Maggie was involved in some recreational listening to other podcasts, she reached out to the Dialogue Podcast Network and within a week, we had joined up as part of the team!

Bradley graduated from BYU (Congratulations Bradley!!!) and, not to be dissuaded by statistics, he had his first job that required his degree BEFORE he walked with that piece of paper. We are all so proud to know such a wonderful person who is not only driven to his own success, but feels called to teach us all in his spare time.

Bradley shared his successes as well as many other gems in these episodes.

Dennis has been taking literary agent to a missionary level, as he mixes his faith with his career, and he has been sharing his successes and trials in these recordings.

Andrew has been keeping things close to his vest, while sharing some critical lessons.

And finally, Maggie is still try to focus on finishing her first book, The Car That Ran on Prayers, but has been distracted by some recent new diagnoses. She shared about those in the following episodes.

Without further adieu, here are May’s first two episodes:

The residual of May’s episodes have been recorded and will be posted as soon as they are processed.

Please watch and set alerts on YouTube or your favorite podcast platform to find out when our next episode drops!

Thank you for joining us! We hope that your week ahead is full of the Love and Lighte of Jesus Christ.

We love you and so does God.

Christ Gathers Us and We Catch Up!

“Just be patient and just keep trusting God. Things work out. Its on God’s timetable, not ours.” A quote from Andrew in this week’s episode of Strangers No More

Maggie comes out and shares her Hard of Hearing disability and requests more help and more members to add to our team to improve accessibility for all.

Andrew introduced the lesson and after having struggled with remembering the name of a hymn during the introduction, he quickly reminds himself and the audience what the name of that tune was.

When the Strangers get down to the lesson, “The Gathering of Israel,” Dennis gets carried away with a touch of gossip, before sharing “The Plan of Salvation,” as taught by his missionaries not that long ago.

In a revelatory explanation, Bradley shared how the Plan of Salvation is not only about us as individuals, but also relates to how we interact in relationships.

After the discussion of the lesson, Bradley shared some facinating insights about how “The Plan” is described throughout the Book of Mormon causing us all to reflect a bit.

Maggie shared how moving forward with the Gospel fills her life with love.

Watch below and you’ll see it all!

No watermarks – All Gospel


To study President Nelson’s talk (as Maggie challenges at the end of the show), here’s a link to the talk: A New Normal, October 2020.

Interviewing Becky

To be considerably honest, Becky Mackintosh wasn’t in the plans to be our first guest to interview. However, God doesn’t pay attention to our plans very often.

God didn’t pay attention to the Mackintosh family plan to be heterosexual. That wasn’t in the cards. Not for their entire family.

In 2012, Becky and Scott Mackintosh’s middle son, Sean, came out to his parents as gay.

After struggling to reconcile her love for her son with her love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ as is taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Becky decided to write a book sharing her journey with the rest of the world. The result is Love Boldly.

You have to read this book.

Within the pages of her book, you’ll find instructions for loving everyone. You’ll feel empathy. You might even cry. Especially when you get to the part where Becky’s husband and Sean’s father, Scott, shares his story.

The Mackintosh family was invited by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to make a video about their journey for The Church’s website. That video reached millions.

Two of those millions were our very own Bradley and Dennis.

Enjoy this episode. Please share it with your friends.
