  1. April, thank you so much for sharing! I never would've guessed about your past and it was interesting to hear all that you told. I'm glad your mom decided not to stay in the FLDS Church. That had to have been so hard, to leave her whole family and lose so many relationships. You didn't mention whether your mom or any of your siblings also ever joined the LDS Church.

  2. You are so lucky that you had a hand to guide you. I didn’t have a hand to guide me and I am now still trying to find my place and my children’s place. It’s not easy to get into the lds community even if you know the Book of Mormon or anything. My kids don’t like church because they feel awkward and the relationship are made with the kids because most have been there for all their lives. I would give anything to find my place and my children feel safe, happy and included

  3. Thank You for sharing so much of your conversion and childhood experience, I am a convert to the church but I was confirmed a member the same day, maybe because I got on a plane and was active duty in the US Navy two days later in Orlando, Florida, there was no support group so it was hard the first four weeks of boot camp! Then some elders came in the barricks on Sunday and there were 12 other guys that decided they wanted to go to church with me! I think it was to get out of work! And thought they could mingle with the waves ( female sailors) they didn't want to go the following Sunday ! And yes my family disowned me for the first twenty years but they aren't as bad now.

    I always thought Davey had something to do with your conversion, pays to never assume anything! You are a very inspiring spiritual person April! Time to join Sister Carraway and join the public speakers ?

  4. The delay about getting baptized was a lot more complicated than April remembers. It’s a long story. But she held out till it happened.

  5. After April got baptized and she was dating other guys she came to me and said she was having a dilemma choosing which boy she wanted to date she asked me who she should go with. The college guys she had been dating or Davey because he was such a good friend. She always had such a great time with him. I told her she should always choose her best friend to go with because if you get married you should always marry your best friend. All other things will fade and when hard times come you will always have your best friend by your side. I was so surprised that she listened to me and I love Davey and his family so much. I prayed for God to lead my children to the right companion for them and He did a great job and April did a good job listening to The Holy Spirit when it counted most.

  6. Wow – thank you so much for sharing! Honestly have been watching your vlog for a few years not, & had no idea about April's childhood. Have always enjoyed your vlog, and now get to enjoy your podcast too!! I do not have an apple phone, and Stitcher does not have the ability to leave comments. Otherwise I would totally give this podcast a 5-star review! Wonder if I can listen to (and comment) using my iPad (have an Android phone, and cannot use the Apple platform to access your podcasts. Thank you again – what you said helped to provide a few answers to questions I've had. 💕

  7. Does Davey remember the conversation that he had with his parents when they decided to go and see April at her baptism?

  8. Oh April I really needed to hear this today. My Husband and I have been going through a hard time lately and this talk made me realize that though we haven't had much time alone since we are taking care of kids and sick parents that we are not alone. We will have time just me and him again after this storm. Thank you so much. You will never know what this has meant to me. I will make it through this.

  9. I really enjoyed your story. My conversion story goes back 10 years. I even started to ask questions in high school to friends who were members.

  10. Why are non-Mormons not allowed to participate in the celebration of marriage if the church is welcoming to all people?

  11. I love you guys and have ways loved watching your channel! This story is really interesting and I enjoyed watching. However, I just wanted to point out that being baptized does not save you or get you into heaven. Being a good person or doing good deeds doesn't get you into heaven. Only a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and admitting that we are sinners and believing that he died on the cross for our sins and calling on him to come into our hearts will get you to heaven. All the other stuff is great and of course God wants us to be good people and do good things. But simply being baptized does not get you to heaven. Baptism is just an outward expression of an inward commitment. It's also very uneasy that you have to be "accepted" into the LDS church. A personal relationship with Jesus is not something that requires acceptance.
