As mentioned in the beginning of Part 1, you may have heard of "the Mormons" is a term we don't prefer to be called. I explain that in more detail in this part of the episode.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I want to explain in my own words how it is the church came to be, who we worship, what we read, and what we believe.

In this Part 2 as well as Part 3, it's just ME solo chatting, explaining things. This introduction is more history based, as I share the origin of the church, including where The Book of Mormon came from, and what Joseph Smith did for the faith.

Hopefully you've already listened to Part 1, which is an interview with my friend Abby discussing her recent conversion, and how it all unfolded in her life. She is a wonderful example to me of listening to her heart, walking in faith, and true sacrifice.

And after you finish this 2nd part, make sure you listen to the conclusion in Part 3, where I share our basic doctrines, the 13 Articles of Faith.
