There is a unique spirit and energy present at the Voices of Hope video shoots, and the recent filming sessions held on the weekend of November 16-18 were no exception.

This episode of the Voices podcast is an interview with Laurie Campbell, the most recent addition to the North Star Executive Committee. Using the pen name Erin Eldridge, Laurie wrote a book about her experiences with same-sex attraction entitled Born That Way? (Deseret Book, 1994). Laurie shares her journey of once living a lesbian lifestyle and her journey to peace and resolution in the gospel. Now, 20 years into her marriage and following the publication of her first book, join us for this engaging interview with Laurie, who has walked different paths in dealing with same-sex attraction and why she made the choices that she has.
In the inaugural episode of the Voices Podcast, the Executive Committee comes together, discusses their background, and explain why they have chosen to be a part of this organization. They also provide a primer to the North Star website and all that this community has to offer.
