The “Strangers”

We are a small team of writers from a wide background of experience. Each one of us has come to our own Testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ within our memberships of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We love God. We sustain the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We also love all of our LGBTQIA+ friends and are actively listening to all of their testimonies. We hope to have a conversation with you soon.

We love you.
