At Last She Said it Ep. 646 The Cultural Hall

Cynthia Winward and Susan Hinckley are co-creators of the [At Last She Said It podcast] (https://atlastshesaidit.org/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) . In this conversation, they share why they started the podcast, where the name came from, and personal experiences they have had as women in the church. They devote the podcast to (finally! at last!) saying everything they have thought but were too uncomfortable to say out loud in church- because the stakes were too high. Whether it’s the fear of jeopardizing a calling or risking a relationship, they talk about difficult things that specifically apply to women of the church. And it’s not just what you say; sometimes it’s simply your way of being in the world. In this episode they delve into the terms and concepts of “patriarchy” and “feminism” and talk about why these can be loaded. They speak to why men’s and women’s experiences in the church might differ and seek to amplify women’s voices and experiences in the church. Their weekly conversations focus on complexities of their faith and church experiences as Latter-day Saints, amplifying a diversity of women’s voices and views, and encouraging listeners to think about old ideas in new ways. Cynthia Winward makes her home in Provo, Utah although she will always be a California girl. Fifteen years ago she created Meringue Designs, an online business that sells her digital embroidery designs worldwide. She holds a degree in business management from Brigham Young University.  Her true loves are baking lemon meringue pie, and true to her Mexican heritage, the world’s greatest red chile enchiladas. She loves travelling with her family, reading non-fiction, and getting up early. Susan M. Hinckley tells stories in words and pictures. She is the creator of the webcomic Gray Area, and a Creative Writing graduate of the University of Utah. A longtime exhibitor with the American Craft Council, her art has appeared in numerous books and magazines and is in private collections across the US. Her essays have appeared in Exponent II, Dialogue, and Sunstone magazines. She splits her time between AZ and MN, but her heart is always in the desert.

Marianne Meets the Mormons Ep. 645 The Cultural Hall

Where does 19th century France intersect with Mormonism? So glad you asked, you’re about to find out! Richie is joined by Daryl, Heather, and Corry to talk about their new book, [Marianne Meets the Mormons] (https://www.press.uillinois.edu/books/?id=p086762&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) . You’ll find out who Marianne is, and how the French examined things like polygamy, family, & socialism in the Mormon community as a way to help them better understand their own changing culture. In the nineteenth century, a fascination with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made Mormons and Mormonism a common trope in French journalism, art, literature, politics, and popular culture. Heather Belnap, Corry Cropper, and Daryl Lee bring to light French representations of Mormonism from the 1830s to 1914, arguing that these portrayals often critiqued and parodied French society. Mormonism became a pretext for reconsidering issues such as gender, colonialism, the family, and church-state relations while providing artists and authors with a means for working through the possibilities of their own evolving national identity. Surprising and innovative,  [Marianne Meets the Mormons] (https://www.press.uillinois.edu/books/?id=p086762&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss)  looks at how nineteenth-century French observers engaged with the idea of Mormonism in order to reframe their own cultural preoccupations. Heather Belnap is Associate Professor of Art History & Curatorial Studies and directs the European Studies program at Brigham Young University, where she currently holds a College of Humanities Professorship. She was recently awarded BYU’s 2022 Phi Kappa Phi Award. She has presented and published widely in feminist art history, and particularly on women in nineteenth-century French art and society. Recently, she has turned her attention to the fields of Utah and Mormon studies. Professor Belnap has co-edited two books, Interior Portraiture and Masculine Identity in France, 1789-1914 (Ashgate, 2011) and Women, Femininity, and Public Space in European Visual Culture, 1789-1914 (Routledge, 2014), and co-authored, with Corry Cropper and Daryl Lee, Marianne Meets the Mormons: Representations of Mormonism in Nineteenth-century France (University of Illinois Press, 2022). She is currently working on three book projects: Modernity’s Muses: Women, Art, and Culture in Post-Revolutionary Paris; a volume on Mormon artist Minerva Teichert for the Introductions to Mormon Thought series; and Artistic Frontiers: Women and the Making of the Utah Art Scene, 1880-1940 (with Emily Larsen). Professor Belnap teaches courses on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European art, modern and contemporary art, women in art, and European Studies. Corry Cropper  specializes in nineteenth-century French literature (particularly the works of Prosper Mérimée) and sports in French literature and culture. He enjoys teaching all levels of French: introductory literature courses, graduate seminars, business French, courses on French culture and history, and language classes. He served as co-chair of the Nineteenth-Century French Studies Association with Andrea Goulet and Larry Schehr from 2010-17. He was chair of the department of French and Italian at BYU from 2009-2018 and currently works as an associate dean in the College of Humanities. Daryl Lee is Professor of French at Brigham Young University and an affiliate of BYU’s Global Women’s Studies, International Cinema Studies, and Comparative Literature programs. His work in cultural studies has addressed two broad eras (late nineteenth-century France and post-war cinema), spans popular and high culture, and has incorporated a variety of forms and material objects, from lyric poetry, the naturalist novel, and crime films to photographic albums of war ruins in Paris, guidebooks, and caricature. His commitment to experiential learning through internships and study abroad has included taking students to France, Morocco and Senegal.

Zach and Darcy Spafford Ep. 643 The Cultural Hall

Zach and Darcy Spafford are the hosts of the top-rated podcast for couples who have struggled with pornography in their marriage, [Thrive Beyond Pornography] (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/thrive-beyond-pornography/id1482319107?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) . Married for 20 years and working to help themselves and others to not just eliminate a pornography struggle but to Thrive Beyond it, they have dedicated their lives to creating lasting, happy couples. They bring depth and understanding to one of the most difficult and meaningful topics any marriage faces. They are frequent guest speakers and unparalleled experts in overcoming pornography, moving beyond betrayal, and re-founding relationships. In this episode we learn more about their background and what brought them to this work. They break down some of the cultural messaging about pornography and how that has shaped various approaches to eliminating pornography. Many of these messages are fear-based and contrary to the message of the gospel. Zach and Darcy seek to share strategies that emphasize the Atonement and repentance, values based messages about pornography (vs. rules based messages), moving away from an addiction mindset, and how to have conversations as committed partners working to solve pornography use.

Gale Sears Ep. 639 The Cultural Hall

Gale Sears is an award-winning author, known for her historical accuracy and intensive research. Gale received a BA in playwriting from Brigham Young University and a master’s degree in theater arts from the University of Minnesota. She is the author of the bestselling The Silence of God, Letters in the Jade Dragon Box, Belonging to Heaven, One Candle, The Sister Preachers and several other novels, including The Route, Christmas for a Dollar, Autumn Sky, Until the Dawn, and Upon the Mountains. She and her husband, George, reside in Utah. The Sister Preachers The year is 1898, and Jennie Brimhall and Inez Knight have been called to be the first single female missionaries in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in England. From their first steps on English soil, Sisters Knight and Brimhall feel like fish in a fishbowl. The notion of “lady preachers” is foreign to many elders serving with them, as well as to the English people they serve. As the sisters work to combat others’ doubts of their knowledge and abilities, they draw on the strength of womanhood and their own testimonies to build their confidence and forge a new path in missionary service. In addition to facing their own internal struggles, they are also confronted by angry, misinformed hecklers and dangerous, violent persecutors. Fighting the temptation to give up and return to the safety of home, the women dig deep, draw on their faith, and find inspiration in the small miracles around them. From acclaimed author Gale Sears, The Sister Preachers is based on the real lives of Lucy Jane (Jennie) Brimhall, Amanda Inez Knight, and other early sister missionaries. This story offers a glimpse into the Church’s early missionary work and into the faith and fortitude that have come to characterize the tens of thousands of sister missionaries who have followed in the footsteps of these pioneering women.

Method Infinite Ep. 637 The Cultural Hall

While no one thing can entirely explain the rise of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the historical influence of Freemasonry on this religious tradition cannot be refuted. Those who study Mormonism have been aware of the impact that Freemasonry had on the founding prophet Joseph Smith during the Nauvoo period, but his involvement in Freemasonry was arguably earlier and broader than many modern historians have admitted. The fact that the most obvious vestiges of Freemasonry are evident only in the more esoteric aspects of the Mormon faith has made it difficult to recognize, let alone fully grasp, the relevant issues. Even those with both Mormon and Masonic experience may not be versed in the nineteenth-century versions of Masonry’s rituals, legends, and practices. Without this specialized background, it is easy to miss the Masonic significance of numerous early Mormon ordinances, scripture, and doctrines. Method Infinite: Freemasonry and the Mormon Restoration offers a fresh perspective on the Masonic thread present in Mormonism from its earliest days. Smith’s firsthand knowledge of and experience with both Masonry and anti-Masonic currents contributed to the theology, structure, culture, tradition, history, literature, and ritual of the religion he founded. Cheryl L. Bruno has a B.S. in Recreation Management from Greensboro College, Greensboro, N.C., and did graduate work in Educational Psychology at Brigham Young University, Provo, UT. She is an independent researcher in Mormon studies, with an interest in the intersection of Mormonism and Freemasonry. Her publications can be found in the Journal of Religion and Society, the John Whitmer Historical Association Journal, and the Journal of Mormon History. Cheryl has presented at numerous Mormon Studies conferences.  She enjoys writing poetry and has also created an original deck of Mormon tarot cards. Nicholas S. Literski, JD, PhD, is an Adjunct Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and a professional spiritual guide. Nick holds a doctorate in Depth Psychology with Emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute, as well as a master’s in Spiritual Guidance from Sofia University. Their research interests include depth psychological reflections on spirituality, Paleolithic cave art, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Nick’s work has been published in the FARMS Review of Books on The Book of Mormon; Psychological Perspectives: A Quarterly Journal of Jungian Thought; Immanence: The Journal of Applied Mythology, Legend, and Folklore; Somatics Magazine-Journal of the Mind-Body Arts and Sciences; and the recent compilation, The Reality of Fragmentation and the Yearning for Healing: Jungian Perspectives on Democracy, Power, and Illusion in Contemporary Politics.

Mid Conference Report Ep. 631 The Cultural Hall

In the Saturday Morning session of the October 2022 General Conference a new “Choose your own adventure” edition of the For the Strength of Youth came out. Kurt Francom ( [Leading Saints] (https://leadingsaints.org/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) and [This Week in Mormons] (https://www.thisweekinmormons.com/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) ) and Richie share thoughts on the changes. The new guide is titled [For the Strength Youth: A Guide for Making Choices] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/for-the-strength-of-youth?lang=eng&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss) . This updated version of FSY has less dos and don’ts, and more counsel to study, pray, and seek out wise heavenly and earthly help in making choices. There is more focus on Jesus Christ, counseling youth to “…turn to the Savior. He is the “strength of youth.”” Kurt and Richie break it down and discuss the various potential reactions to these changes.
