LaPrele P. Jordan’s My Spiritual Journey
“This is the spiritual journey I have taken from being a Mormon to being Johannine to coming back to the Mormon faith, but in a different capacity. This is all about building belief in Jesus Christ and the twists and turns I’ve taken to maintain my integrity.”

About LaPrele Jordan
LaPrele P. Jordan was born and raised in a small town in Southern Utah. She was raised in the Mormon faith, which she loved dearly. LaPrele’s father was knowledgeable in the scriptures and used his expertise in teaching the young LaPrele about everything she needs to strengthen her Mormon faith. He would tell Laprele tales from the scripture and his own spiritual experiences. These nurtured LaPrele’s spirituality and faith.
LaPrele would encounter multiple challenges and struggles, but she did her best to keep her integrity despite the adversities. She eventually got married and had ten beautiful kids. Unfortunately, her first marriage did not work out, and LaPrele found herself in a difficult situation, for she was also sick during that time. But God’s grace and her family’s love helped LaPrele through it all. Although no longer part of the Mormon Church for 25 years, LaPrele couldn’t discuss a word about this matter with her loving family because of their strong affiliations with the Church.
Laprele P. Jordan enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Despite her poor health, Jordan found comfort in quilting. She also likes painting and claims she has made over 70 paintings in her lifetime.
