Meet the Jehovah’s Mormons

Presbyterian, Lutheran, Jehovah’s Witness, and finally Mormon.

My mother’s religious journey has been an absolutely wild one. But I can’t help but wonder why she chose to be so willingly faithful when Christianity forced her leave her home country behind as such a young woman. How could she follow a religion that caused her such heartache?

Listen to this crazy story for some more insight.

Daughter is a podcast series dedicated to sharing the untold stories of my mother, who also happens to be a refugee, a child bride, a prison escapee and my everything. Throughout this series, you’ll follow along with me as I learn more about her life, and about the sacrifices she’s made for my family. This project is my attempt at adding my mother, and the stories of so many, into the chronicles of history where they belong. But it’s also a project that highlights the dynamic of two different cultures colliding as a result of the mother-daughter relationship.
