Can a patriarchal blessing give guidance on issues of gender? In this episode of Mormonish, cohosts Rebecca and Landon are joined by one of our favorite guests, LGBTQ advocate, Melisa Mons, as we discuss a presentation that was given last year at the FAIR Conference. Although the presentation was given a year ago, it was rereleased recently to advertise the upcoming FAIR Conference 2023. The presentation, titled, "Teaching and Communicating the Doctrine of the Family to the Rising Generation" was given by presenter, Carol Rice, and included a story about a trans young adult who received a patriarchal blessing which changed this individual's identity to be more in line with an "eternal self." We had some pretty strong feelings about this story and thought a discussion was definitely warranted. We'd love to know what our viewers and listeners thought of the story, we truly value your perspectives and insights.
