When Michelle LeClair was just a teenager, Scientology promised her a better life. She decided to postpone college and squash her attraction to women in favor of being a member of the church. But she couldn’t ignore her feelings forever. Michelle joins Katherine to speak about forgiving the institutions that shape us, and accepting yourself for who you are.
You can get a copy of Katherine's book, The Gift of Forgiveness, wherever books are sold.
