A Conversation with Thomas Wirthlin McConkie

May 22, 2017

Thomas Wirthlin McConkie is a descendent of two highly influential Mormon leaders.  And yet, his close ties to the LDS Church didn’t insulate him from questioning his faith. He left the church as a teenager and found spiritual fulfillment in Zen Buddhism. After almost 20 years, he returned to Mormonism, and he wants to help others navigate their own faith crises. McConkie joins us Monday to discuss how the tools of developmental psychology can help guide us through faith transitions.

Thomas Wirthlin McConkie is the host of the Mindfulness + podcast, which is distributed by the LDS Church-owned KSL Newsradio. He's the author of the book Navigating Mormon Faith Crisis: A Simple Development Map [Amazon]. For more details on his work, visit LowerLightsSLC.org
