11 Unforgettably Touching Mormon Moments from 2017

Lesbian Couple Shared Why They Divorced to Join the Church

In a powerful video from the Splitting the Sky YouTube documentary series, Courtney and Rachelle shared their story of deciding to divorce and join the Church. We admire the bravery of these two women in sharing their journey. The faith and courage they demonstrate through their decision prompt us each to ponder what the gospel of Jesus Christ means to us, and what we would be willing to sacrifice for it. 

Editorial note: This is a personal story of how two women came to join the Church. It's important to remember that every person's journey is different, and we acknowledge that gay members of the Church should find the solution that best works for their situation.
