Episode 335: Blaire Ostler, Queer Latter-day Saint and Queer Theorist
1 hr 19 min
My friend Blaire Ostler (no relation) updated our listeners to help us better understand our bisexual and non binary friends.   The first part of the podcast is educational to help us understand the labels people use to describe their identities and orientations.   Labels matter.  And using labels is key to helping our LGBTQ friends feel loved and accepted.

The second part of the podcast is Blaire bravely sharing her experiences as a Latter-day Saint—including difficult experiences and some recent hopeful experiences.  If you want to better help LGBTQ Latter-day Saints and honor our leaders charge to be more inclusive, please listen to Blaire share her experience.   I wish I knew the things Blaire taught many years ago.   It would have helped me better minister and support all of our Heavenly Parents children.

You can reach Blaire (and read more of her excellent work) at blaireostler.com

Thank you for being on the podcast my friend Blaire.   You are awesome!

55. Transformations of Faith - Thomas McConkie
*** Find out more at transformationsoffaith.org *** In this episode, we spoke with Thomas McConkie about something really exciting that he’s been working on over the past year in partnership with Faith Matters. Thomas has created an online course called Transformations of Faith. Many of our listeners are familiar with Thomas’s unique story. He’s a mindfulness teacher and practitioner of over 20 years, a committed and thoughtful Latter-day Saint, and a researcher and teacher in the field of adult development. In Transformations of Faith, Thomas draws on all three of these perspectives to create some truly transformative insights and practices. It’s an extraordinarily rich course with over 10 hours of teaching and guided meditations by Thomas, plus some fascinating conversations between Thomas and Adam Miller in which they dive deeper into the ideas in the course. Faith Matters is a non-profit organization, but we’ve made a substantial investment to produce this course because we believe what Thomas has to share  will be life-changing for many people. For that reason, the course is the first product we’ve made available for purchase through Faith Matters. We’re offering a discounted price of $98 for the first 100 purchasers. We’ve also decided to make financial aid available for those who can’t currently afford it — we don’t want money to be the reason anyone misses out on the course. Subscribers will also be able to access an audio-only version of the course on a private podcast channel. For those of us who have taken the course, it’s been a subject of constant conversation. Many of the ideas and practices Thomas shared have truly been life-changing and opened up new awareness for both of us about ourselves and others around us that we simply couldn’t see before. We expect we’ll be back to it over and over again to process and uncover new layers of meaning. We think it could be particularly helpful if you feel spiritually or emotionally stuck or stagnant, or if you struggle with anxiety. You can head to transformationsoffaith.org in order to see more detail about the course, watch a sample video, and enroll.  We had a ton of fun talking with Thomas about some of the most interesting and impactful moments in the course for this episode of the podcast. We can’t wait for you to listen and hope you enjoy the conversation.
