Mormon Patriarchal Blessings (Siblings in Zion Podcast)
As we mentioned in the last episode on Mormonism, Dan & his sister Lisa have started a new podcast called Siblings in Zion! Today we present an episode from that show in which the siblings discuss the LDS practice of 'Patriarchal Blessings'. Check out the links below and subscribe! --- In this episode Dan and Lisa read their super special, verrry unique Patriarchal Blessings (also known as Mormon horoscopes) and dissect them into what is standard Mormon jargon, what is total BS, and what is likely influenced by knowledge provided to the patriarch beforehand. As you might expect, there are some differences between blessings and expectations for males and females. They also hit some serious mental hurdles attempting to make any sense of what the pre-mortal life could possibly have been. What the hell is a spiritual body?! --- Website: siblingsinzion.com Apple Podcasts: https://tiny.cc/sizapple Facebook: facebook.com/siblingsinzion Instagram: instagram.com/siblingsinzion Twitter: twitter.com/siblingsinzion YouTube: tiny.cc/sizyoutube

The Fundamentals: Mormonism - Part 4 (Leaving the LDS Church)
In this season finale (more on that at the end of the episode), Dan's sister Lisa joins us to conclude our series on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She talks about the structure of missionary life bleeding over after she returned, her struggle to conform to the expectations of women in the church, some of the very weird things she used to believe, and the process of learning and accepting the incompatible truths that would lead her to resign her membership and seek a life of her choosing. We also discuss the future of The Fundamentals and expansion to new things. Stay tuned!

The Fundamentals: Recycling ♻️
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. There is a reason for that order. Despite our best efforts and intentions, recycling is not the idyllic process most of us assume it is. Now that China has enacted the 'National Sword' policy, it is even more difficult to carry out. We need to be aware of what is possible for us to do, and how we can maximize our actions within the parameters of the places we live.
