UPIN Asks: Have you experienced a faith crisis in the LDS Church?
As the Internet has made LDS Church history more accessible and controversial policy changes have ignited international discussion, some members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have seen their beliefs shaken. The church has responded by releasing essays explaining sometimes-controversial topics, and recent books, such as "The Crucible of Doubt" and "Planted," have offered suggestions for how struggling members can overcome their doubts to stay in the faith.
We want to hear from Mormons who've experienced, or are experiencing, a faith crisis — the questions they've had or are having and how they either resolved them or hope to do so, whether that means leaving the LDS Church or sticking with it.
