Thank you!
On episode 3. What a great son you are. You’re also very humble because you never give your name. It was quite beautiful to hear your mother’s story. Thank you for giving her a platform to tell this story. I can’t thank you both enough, I’m completely engrossed and affected.

Well done
A mother and son with quite a story to tell. What she went through because of her husband and the Mormon church was terrible and she seems so forgiving.

So inspirational
