Leaving witchcraft for the LDS Church | with Joseph
Joseph’s story is probably the most unique conversion story we’ve had on Saints Unscripted (but we’ll let you be the judge of that!). Joseph tells his conversion story of joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as the Mormon Church) from his previous and well-studied faith in witchcraft. He talks about the transition from his previous faith to the LDS church (spoiler alert: it wasn’t easy!) and how he navigated the years following his conversion. You don’t want to miss this story!

Should we wear garments EVERY. SINGLE. DAY?
Recently, there has been a lot of talk in the media about LDS garments (sometimes referred to as “Mormon underwear” or “magic Mormon underwear”). The recent focus comes mostly from members of the Church of Jesus Christ but also from non-members of the LDS Church. Many members have opinions about the frequency in which one should wear the temple garment, the material of a temple garment, and more. This episode addresses the host’s opinions about the garment. Should the garment be worn all the time? Is the garment magic? Should the garment be removed for specific activities?

Conversion story with Andrew
Andrew’s story is nothing short of REMARKABLE and we’re so honored he shared his words with us on Saints Unscripted! Andrew grew up with a few different faith backgrounds and eventually doubted the existence of God. He was at a place of despair and just needed to know if God was there. Not only that but Andrew wanted to truly know God— he wanted to void in his life to finally be filled. You’ll never believe how Andrew ended up meeting the missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and learning about the restored gospel!

THIS is the exact day you should get baptized
We've done plenty of "Responding to Comments" episodes but have never done an episode where we strictly answer your questions (either from direct message on Instagram, Facebook, or questions in the YouTube comments). We LOVE hearing from you and reading your comments!! In this episode, we answer questions about when to get baptized, what to do if you're doubting your faith, if we think you should go to college, etc. The answers are all strictly the opinions of the hosts but we think they are prettyyyy solid words of advice :)

Deconstructing our religion 😳 | with Leo Winegar
Have you ever pronounced a word wrong and not known you were wrong until you were corrected? Have you ever ‘filled in’ the words to a song without actually knowing what was being said? Words are important. Using and understanding words are important. In this episode, Leo Winegar joins us to talk about a specific, important word: Deconstruction. Destruction is a neutral term and is a way to describe the breaking down and evaluating of one’s religion (or faith). Unfortunately, often when we see someone who is going through destruction, we assume they are crossing over a metaphorical bridge that is ‘against’ us, as faithful members. Also, when someone is experiencing deconstruction, they might assume their life is crumbling rather than evaluating and being able to move forward.

Responding to RETRO Mormon Ads!
If you grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the mid-90's and early-2000's, you've likely seen the infamous Mormon Ads produced by the Church (otherwise known as the Mormon Church). The graphic design is awesome, though sometimes a little far-fetched (as we'll discuss in today's episode). The reactions of the hosts may be similar to your reactions but we want to read about your reactions so don't forget to comment with your thoughts on the Mormon Ads!! Also, if there are other Mormon Ads that you LOVE that we missed, DM us on Instagram and we'll include the picture in our next reaction video :)

There was a Utah War?! | with Marc
Today we’re at Camp Floyd, Utah! This is where 1/3 of the United States army came for the Utah War (which has A LOT do with LDS History (otherwise known as Mormon History)) and we’re in the full costumes to set the mood to share this true story with YOU! You might recognize Marc from a previous episode we filmed with him (see below) but what you might not have realized is that the Utah War is a passion for Marc so we eagerly jumped at the opportunity to film this episode with him! We talk polygamy, civil war, guns, artifacts from the war, etc.

The one with the Pentecostal Mormon | with Jacob
Jacob Herring has been a long-time fan of Saints Unscripted (in fact, he's been an avid watcher since episode ONE) so we are stoked to hear him tell his story on the show! Jacob talks about his journey in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as the Mormon Church), as well as his faith journey through other religions. Jacob was once Pentecostal and loved the practice but felt like he still had many questions. He wasn't sure where to go next so he began searching about others religions. He talks about how he came across the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, how he found Saints Unscripted, and the long journey to baptism.

Sam's Farewell Episode
Today is a somber day for Saints Unscripted. Today we say goodbye to an amazing host of Saints Unscripted, Samantha. Sam has done SO. MUCH. GOOD. for so many people who have watched the channel, as well as for the entire Saints Unscripted team. She spoke to many women issues, all of which were vital discussions which generated a lot of love (as well as some heated comments, which were indicative of an important topic!). Sam is equally witty, intelligent, and kind. We are so lucky to have had the chance to work with her!! Good luck to you, Sam!!

Are LDS prophets and US presidents THE SAME?!
For those of you celebrating this weekend, happy 4th of July! We recognize that many of you live outside of the United States of America so it's not often that we make videos that are specific to the USA. However, because this weekend is the 4th of July, we decided to quiz each other on knowledge of quotes by some presidents of the United States. You will probably be SHOCKED at which quotes are from the US presidents and which are from LDS prophets!!

INSIDE where Joseph Smith was killed | ft. Sister Missionaries
In this episode, we had the remarkable opportunity to speak with some missionaries directly from Carthage Jail. For those who are new to the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as the Mormon church), Carthage Jail was the place where Joseph Smith, Jr, the first latter-day prophet in the LDS Church, was killed. He was in jail awaiting trial when a mob of angry men broke through the door and shot both Joseph and Hyrum, Joseph's brother. The sister missionaries that joined us today talk about their experience as missionaries serving on such sacred ground. What did you learn from the missionaries? Let us know in the comments below! Error: At 18:48 David mentions the room where John Taylor hid the wounded Willard Richards. It was actually Willard Richards hiding a wounded John Taylor. He mixed up the names.

How I found happiness in spite of difficulty | with Jake
Today's episode covers a variety of important topics, all of which have been seldom discussed on this channel. Needless to say, we are ELATED to share this interview with you!! Jake Berry joins us on the show to talk about bullying, LGBTQ, coming home early from a mission, disabilities, and more. Jake was born with cerebral palsy and was consequently bullied all throughout his life. He talks about his treatment after coming home early from his mission as well as his life following his mission and how it's ok living in the unknown just like he is now. As he shares his experience, he urges all people to learn to be more accepting and loving, which is a message we could all use.

The Mormon Heretic | Jan's Story
Today's episode is coming at you all the way from POLAND! Jan joins us to talk about his conversion story and starting his YouTube channel, Mormonolog. Jan is a theologian, becoming passionate about religion when he was quite young. While he learned about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a teen, he didn't begin his true relationship with the religion until his second year of his theology studies. You HAVE to hear his story, it's fascinating and not one you want to miss! Jan says, "...If our faith is identical for each person (each Church member), it is no longer faith, it is no longer authentic – it has nothing to do with religion. It becomes an empty ideology. A religion that requires its followers to think and behave and feel about things in the very same way – is not a religion, but a totalitarian regime. The 'God' of such religion is not a Parent but an egotistic dictator, who is unable to care for those he called his children. And for me the Lord's Church is different in this respect. It appreciates its members for what they already are. In the Church we are not a commodity – we are an asset. The Lord wants us to know it!"
