Eldon Buchanan – Part 2: From Trauma, Divorce, & Despair to Hope & The Atonement

This weeks episode deals with some difficult topics, which include the lingering effects of trauma, infidelity, excommunication, divorce, and multiple suicide attempts.  If you have kids under 15 or 16, we recommend that you watch or listen to this episode first before sharing it with them.


In part 2 of Eldon Buchanan’s story, he shares how troubles at the farm forced him to drive trucks for several years away from his family.  While he tried to stay strong on the road, he was ultimately caught up in some compromising situations that caused him to make some bad choices.

These choices led him down even darker paths to the point where he felt that he’d lost everything.

Fortunately, God had a different plan, and through repentance, hope, and the Atonement, Eldon was able to find peace and happiness again in his life.

We want to thank Eldon for having the courage to share this difficult story.  We know it’s not always easy to admit our weaknesses or bad choices, but the truth is that we all make them, and while we have to live with the consequences of those choices, it’s important to remember that God still loves us, and Christ always provides a way for each of us to be forgiven.

*** Please SHARE Eldon’s story and help us spread hope and light to others. ***
