Episode Info:

In this episode, I chat with my friend and colleague Barry Rellaford, who is currently serving as a YSA (young single adult) bishop. During this interview, Barry tells me about the most challenging aspects of being a bishop and the training he receives from the Church (as well as from his life). He also discusses with me how he helps the members of his ward overcome the shame and stigma (both cultural and self-imposed) for coming home early and other reasons, how he leads others along the path of repentance, and how he tries to help early-returned missionaries (and others) when their lives don't go as planned. Barry also discusses the importance of keeping the Savior as his focus and how his main goal as a bishop is to lead others to Him.  Finally, Barry shares with me how he tries to make sure someone is ready to serve a mission.
