Audio Postcard Series– How to Talk to Your Mormon Friend

A little behind my intended schedule — but — The audio postcard series, How to Talk To Your Mormon Friend, is almost ready. What is it? When you enter your email address on my homepage in the sign-up box, you will begin to receive 2-3 emails from me a week. Each one will contain an “audio postcard” link.

Reason #76 from Michelle Sperry

I have recently finished reading the “Mormon Mirage” and found this book to be both insightful and comforting. This book does an excellent job of stating the historical facts and background of the Mormon religion as well as explaining many of the Mormon church’s past and present doctrinal beliefs. This book would be an excellent read for anyone exploring the beliefs of the Mormon church or anyone who is a member and questions the Church’s history and doctrine.
