Natasha interviews Katie Langston about her new memoir, “Sealed: An Unexpected Journey into the Heart of Grace.”
Katie talks about how sexual shame became a regular part of her upbringing as early as age 3-4 due to her mother’s distress with normative masturbation. Along with non-comprehensive sexual education, worthiness interviews with bishops, and other hurdles, Katie struggled to understand and accept things as normal as her body, interest and crushes on boys, and her worth as an individual.
Katie believes that her development of OCD was exacerbated by the rigid and conservative environment that constantly pitted her against her own mind/body.
Thank you to Jeff Meyers for the intro and Peter & Mary Danzig of Otter Creek Duo for the concluding bumper music.
