I just feel like I really relate to her. It was a great film about some people that I think are going to be great representatives of a sample of who our church is and what we are about. Just the story line … and the different people that they had. I thought it was tremendous. They did a phenomenal job of telling their story and really touching people on an emotional level and yet letting people know who we are as Mormons.

I have a special place in my heart for missionaries, so when the young man went on his mission to South Africa, it took me back to when I was leaving and going to the airport, so that was kind of forefront in my mind. It was faith energizing. It was for me, so hopefully it was for others.
I thought it was really powerful.
What famous Mormons think about 'Meet the Mormons'
The story of the family sending the missionary off touches home. When we sent our son off, you feel that same way. I need to make my own path.Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn: "I'm a Proud Gay Guy"
God prepared a way for me in spite of my rebelliousness. I really started learning about the gospel after that conversation with my boyfriend. When I had this spiritual realization I quit drinking, and I quit doing drugs. I just quit it all. Because of some unrelated tensions, the band just kind of fell apart, and we called it quits.
I realized that if there ever were a time that I could go on a mission it would be now. Since I was a kid, I did not want to serve a mission. It did not sound good to me. Help me to want to go. So I went to the church and started asking the bishop for some mission papers. I never wavered after that moment.
I went on my mission to Frankfurt, Germany, which is where I met one of my best friends, Bryce Taylor. Bryce and I never served together, though. We met once at a missionary activity, and his first memory from that day was of me doing a kick flip on a skateboard in a skirt.
Some of the office elders had some of the music I made before and during my mission. I had a guitar in my apartment for ten months and the mission president let me record some acoustic stuff for him.
One day, the office elders had Bryce listen to my music, and he loved it. Yeah, I just wanted to say that we should play together.

I play in a band at home, and I think you should come to Utah. Six weeks after that phone call Bryce came home from the mission and proceeded to call me every Sunday to ask me when I was coming out to Utah. His hounding was seriously half the reason I decided to even apply to BYU. After you returned from your mission, how did you get involved with Neon Trees? I applied to BYU, got accepted, and moved out to Provo. Bryce and I started playing some music together.
He would come over and jam with me in my basement—he played the guitar, and I played the drums. So we called a friend of his and got him to play bass. We became this three piece in Provo called Another Statistic.
We started playing with another local band called Neon Trees. I want to play in their band. I knew I wanted to play music professionally. Around the same time, Neon Trees was going through the same struggle. It was so harmonious and so fateful that right when Another Statistic was fading, Neon Trees split. So Tyler and Chris invited me and another musician, Branden, to join them and this harmony was born. How do you navigate being an active LDS woman within the music scene?
Liquor companies sponsor parties and shows all of the time. I think it helps that everybody in our band is Mormon. Granted, everybody in the band is on a different rung of the spiritual ladder. At least it's not for me. For me it's about finding the purist of peace. The absolute settling of my soul. The clearest vision of the road I want to take. Jennifer Lopez will be honored by a gay rights group—all the details!
I don't want to die anymore. I want to really live. What an amazing place to be. For me it was a place I never cared about. Now all I want is to be honest.
