Mormon Stories - LDS

As part 1 in a new Mormon Stories Podcast series on navigating mixed-faith marriages, we interview Kirsten and David Udy. The Udy's story touches on multiple important themes, including:

  • Their brief courtship and marriage after returning from full-time LDS missions
  • David's early experiences with drugs and alcohol that resurfaced during their marriage
  • How David's "shelf" broke under the weight of doctrinal issues and how he used alcohol to cope
  • Kirsten's unwavering commitment to the Gospel, including the Word of Wisdom, and how David's alcohol use created tension in the marriage
  • David's experience in the LDS 12-step program
  • How Kirsten and David currently navigate their mixed-faith marriage, using love to overcome their obstacles and facing their challenges despite differences in belief
