(part 2 of 5) Joanna Brooks, Ph.D, is a national voice on Mormon life and politics and an award-winning scholar of religion and American culture and the author of The Book of Mormon Girl:  Stories from an American Faith. In Part Two, Joanna and Kendall explore Mormon Identity–what happens when one is made to feel unworthy of that identity, how all encompassing Mormon identity is, and how it is possible to claim this identity for oneself.
