The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, Trent joins us to talk about a myriad of interesting topics. We start off with discussing his Mormon upbringing, and transition into his faith crisis and search for the truth.  The talk moves from Buddhism and spirituality, to smashing through those with a healthy dose of skepticism. After that we dive into the story of James G. Bleak, Trent’s ancestor, and his time in the Martin Handcart Company. This discussion episode goes a bit longer than most, but it’s packed full of good information, so stick around for the whole talk.
