TESTIMONIALS

I have to say THANK YOU! Although no “thank you” will ever be enough. The content and resources you provide are saving lives, helping families and marriages, and giving hope when there feels like none. I cannot tell you enough how important your foundation and work is. You all have have changed my life and gave me what I needed in a time when it felt like there were no answers or help. As my husband and I have transitioned, and continue to do so, out of the LDS church, the wisdom shared from the podcasts have driven vital conversation and helped us maintain our dignity and grace throughout the process with our families and friends. I cannot thank you enough, and will continue to donate monthly to a cause that is so desperately needed. Thank you Open Stories Foundation, I am forever indebted to you.

Regarding OSF
When I'm feeling alone in my transition and my heart is full of pain, my go to is a podcast....and I am no longer alone. Thank you John and crew. Thank you to all the wonderful souls who have shared their stories and helped me and countless others heal.

Regarding OSF Podcasts
This was wonderful.  I love that the focus was on personal growth and emotional health.  I was concerned coming into it that it would have an anti-mormon feel.  Still very respectful of acknowledging people are at different places on their journey.  I am so grateful for this experience!
