Episode 104: Starting Over

As I started to gain more success, I started to gain more confidence. That made me feel more comfortable drawing boundaries or saying, ‘This is what I need...’ Our relationship was just fully unprepared for that kind of equality.

Brooke Lark was raised to think having a career was selfish and motherhood was sacred. She had four children by the age of 29 and never expected to work outside the home. But as she began to have more contact with the outside world, the certainties of her religion began to crumble. At 35 she was faced with a whole new prospect - not only working, but being the main breadwinner for her family.  

In this show we hear Brooke's story of being raised Mormon, losing her religion, and joining a workplace she had no idea how to navigate.
