Strong Women

May 1, 2024

Megan Donahue grew up in a Mormon family whose roots reach all the way back to the founding of Mormonism. Though she sincerely believed as a child, she was discouraged from thoroughly investigating what she had been taught. Eventually, Megan’s beliefs unraveled as she grappled with long-held questions and the burden of works-based religion. Through the mess of doubt, she stepped away from everything she had ever known and asked God to show her the truth. She joins us this week to tell her story of leaving Mormonism and learning to trust Christ.

As Christians, we’re called to love God with all our minds, and be transformed by the renewal of our minds. Without a mind that’s shaped by God’s Word, we’ll struggle to champion the truth, beauty, and goodness of God’s Kingdom in this time and place. To address this problem, Michael Craven, Vice President of Equipping and Mobilization at the Colson Center has written a brand-new, free e-book called The Christian Mind: Its Necessity to Christian Relevance and Renewal. It’s a primer on developing a thoroughly Christian mind for the sake of the Kingdom. If you want a more robust faith that actually shapes how you live in the world today, or if you’re wondering why cultivating a Christian mind really matters, you should read this book. Again, it’s called The Christian Mind. You can grab your free copy by going to
