A Ph.D. student in clinical psychology, John Dehlin is the creator of Mormon Stories — a podcast project which eventually resulted in the creation of some 80 support communities, as well as conferences which are being held across the country.

A champion of diversity and authenticity, John has helped thousands of Mormons who were ready to leave the church to embrace their Mormon identity and live more authentic lives. John is also the co-author of a groundbreaking survey of over 1600 LGBT Mormons.

"When I started Mormon Stories," John wrote in 2009, "I felt this sincere, deep-seeded, almost overwhelming concern for those I considered to be marginalized within Mormonism. I spent a few years, at an almost frenetic pace, trying to create web sites and podcasts to reach out to those struggling: gays, feminists, intellectuals, doubters, the mentally ill, even the disaffected.

"After a few years of reaching out to anyone and everyone I could, it began to feel like I was holding an umbrella during a tsunami. So much pain out there, it seemed. So little support. I was also struggling through my own crisis of faith at the time — and this clearly distorted my perception.

"My heart has not stopped feeling for the struggling within Mormonism. I continually puzzle at how hard it is for some folks to constructively work through their pain (myself included). I don't minimize the complexity of the issues. I just wish that healing was somehow easier within this particular body of Christ...which I happen to love immensely."
