God eventually led Kathleen into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ only a few years ago. The same Christian man who helped her leave Mormonism is now her husband. She encourages Christians to be patient, loving, and persistent when witnessing to Mormons.

I grew up in the Allred Group, a fundamentalist Mormon group in Utah, believing in the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith.
It was in God’s Word where I saw my depravity and knew I deserved to be ground to dust on judgment day and cast into the lake of fire forever.

We get nervous, fearful, and struggle with feelings of inadequacy and the guilt of being unprepared. How do we overcome this?
