In this episode of the Voices podcast, Ty Mansfield interviews 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? A True Story of Overcoming Same-Sex Attraction with Insights for Friends, Families, and Leaders (Deseret Book, 1994).

Laurie shares her journey of once living a lesbian lifestyle and her journey to peace and resolution in the gospel. She speaks of the spiritual events that led to her return to full church activity, overcome drug and alcohol addiction, author a book, and eventually marry a man and start a family. 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.
