Mormon Discussion Podcast: 339: My Amazing Wife Amanda Reel

It has been a long time coming, but my wife Amanda and I sat down to have a conversation about our journey.  We tell our combined story as a couple and what our life journey has looked like.  Be patient with both of us, My wife is much more introverted when it comes to a conversation she knows will be heard and dissected in the public arena and hence I likely spoke a little too much in parts in order to add details to our story where she left off and to help when her answers are short.   It comes off as me overshadowing her and while there is probably a little truth to that, she also would self admit this is not a comfortable space for her.  That said she comes off brilliantly and we both really enjoyed this conversation.

  1. It was great listening to your guys’ story. Thank you for sharing. It is so interesting to me how I know my response to certain things would have been completely different a few years back. I.e.: When I heard how your wife responded to you when you first vocalized your doubts, I thought, “wow, how amazing”. Then I thought, a few years back I would have immediately thought “how feeble her testimony must be” or something along those lines. I’m glad for both of you that this transition, at least on the marriage front, went so smoothly.

  2. Very interesting. The journey…didn’t change the love between you two. Hey…that is way ahead of mormonism where marriages are contrived and judged by their dedication to a church. Best to both of you and your family! When my husband at the age of 44 was slipping away with cancer…I had promised to get him sealed to me. In that process I found the truth…and you know what??? I aim to find him. Having resigned….I will still look for him. In my mind, the God I know now…and/or not….will accept the love between two people.
