Since the 1960s, unorthodox Mormons coalesced around print publications like Sunstone and Dialogue to engage in independent thought about Mormonism. Many of those people are now parents and grandparents. This panel will discuss the challenges of raising children in the Mormon faith, but outside the mainstream. Parents will discuss “inoculation,” navigating the politics of church youth programs, and balancing faith and criticism. Finally, the panel will discuss the consequences of a Sunstone upbringing. Does being raised in a Sunstone home inoculate you against faith crises? What is it like growing up in an unorthodox home?
