Edit April 2024:

A fan named Anne P asks: “I have no idea who you are, but I’m wondering if you’re still active with all of this and if, as new documents become available, you’ll be adding them to your collection? I want John’s deposition to go there, at the very least.”

Yes! Please post it in your thread, Anne, and I will dutifully post it here!

Citizen Kane

Compiled Documents (presented in chronological order)
February 2011 – Example of early work I was doing with/for John on Mormon Stories Book Club

March 3, 2011 – Invitation from John to come to NYC conference and provide feedback

Spring 2011: Earliest Facebook chats between me and John Dehlin. Conversations gradually become more and more explicit as he asks personal questions to test my boundaries.

June 2011 – Mormon Stories Podcast webpage announcing SLC Conference and me introducing the Mormon Stories Shared Values.

July 28, 2011 – Facebook chats between John Dehlin and me immediately following SLC conference. References to our physical relationship. In one message, I tell him explicitly he should “go back to [his] wife.” He responds by saying that only makes him want to pursue me more. This proved to be an ongoing pattern with John.

July, 2011 – Email I received that showed previous correspondence between OSF staff/volunteers regarding private inurement warnings to John Dehlin.

February 2012 – Phoenix OSF conference organizing emails  — including me expressing discomfort at staying in volunteer’s house.

February 2012 – Receipt for a Phoenix motel I insisted in staying in because I learned at the January conference in Texas that John would break his promises and sneak into my bedroom during the middle of the night if I stayed in a host’s home where he was also sleeping. I stayed in that hotel one night and then, because the hotel was so bad, with a host family where John was not staying the second night.

April 2012 – Email from John Dehlin to me  — invitation to go dancing while he was in Boston for the Boston Mormon Stories Conference

June 26, 2012 – Sexual harassment policy I drafted and presented to John. It didn’t go anywhere because John was resisting major organizational changes.

July 12, 2012 – Emails between me and John discussing possible board structures . John was opposed to an empowered board, especially if he had to step aside for a time to finish his Ph.D.

July 12, 2012 – Attachment referenced in above email – my proposed board/organizational structure

August 6, 2012 – Financial report emails among OSF board members — attempt to downplay conference financials

August 10, 2012 – Email from John Dehlin to me  — pressuring me to leave OSF and admittance to “faux sexting”

Note: The above document was sent AFTER the text messages Mormonism Live purported to be evidence that John had repeatedly rejected my advances. In the above email, John writes, “and just yesterday we began faux sexting???” referring to an interaction he claims occurred between us on August 9. This is proof that John selectively edited the messages he recently released in order to support a false narrative that he was continually rebuffing my advances. It is clear by that point John was trying to gather dirt on me to use in his defense. I explain the reason behind those text messages in my forensic interview here.

August 11, 2012 – Email from me to John in response to him pressuring me to resign . (This is one of several documents OSF included in its official response to my sexual harassment claim, which John failed to disclose as part of the Mormonism Live episode.)

August 11, 2012 – Email from me to John Dehlin– frustrated that John had locked me out of websites at the same time I was trying to run a conference in San Francisco. I needed access to the websites to do my job.

August 13, 2012 – Standard OSF podcast contract  — 100% of donations going to podcaster

August 22, 2012 – My text messages with OSF Board Chair Joanna Brooks – reporting the sexual nature of my relationship with John

August 22, 2012 – OSF volunteer and donor offers me $5,000 as “consolation” for what was transpiring.

August 27, 2012 – Correspondence with the attorney Joanna Brooks hired to pressure me to resign

August 28, 2012 – Letter from OSF attorney pressuring me to resign

August 31, 2012 – Letter from OSF attorney terminating my employment and removing me from board of directors after no investigation conducted and full board not informed

August 31, 2012 – Separation agreement from board lawyer, including boilerplate language for me to resign (I did not)

September 3, 2012 – John Dehlin’s pro-forma application to be re-instated to OSF and receive 100% of Mormon Stories donations past, present and future

September 4, 2012 – Email correspondence from Board Chair Joanna Brooks to the full board of directors covering up my termination, reasons for my departure and unilaterally closing down my work (after Joanna sent this email and it was clear a coverup was occurring, I reached out to board members, who had been kept in the dark, and individually informed each of them of my accusation of sexual harassment).

September 5, 2012 – Joanna announces major organizational changes to conference organizers without board approval

September 9, 2012 – My decision to rescind my right to an investigation. At the time what I wanted was for the board to protect me from John and to allow me to continue doing my work. I was very sensitive and raw at the time and did not want to get into details about the sexual harassment. All I wanted was for John to calm down so I could move on and continue building the organization and doing the work I loved.

September 17, 2012 – Email of my resignation. I received a phone call from Natasha and another board member again asking me to resign. At that point, I gave up. I had received no help, it was clear they were protecting John at all costs and I realized that no help was going to be available to me.

October 11, 2012 – Screenshot of Mormon Stories Podcast webpage announcement of strategic changes to OSF priorities, including fabricated reasons for closing down conferences

October 15, 2012 – An email I wrote apologizing to John Dehlin and his wife Margi, and attempting to find a way for everyone to move on appropriately. It upset me and my husband that John offered no sort of apology in return. Instead, John offered “Option 1 and Option 2.”

October 16, 2012 – Natasha’s email to me at the time of the rest of the board’s resignation. I had just reached out to the board in hopes of getting some help ending John’s retaliatory bannings. Instead, the board unanimously voted John back on the board, then all but Natasha resigned. She then used this letter as an attempt to establish a record of what the board had supposedly done to resolve the problem when in fact the problem was not resolved, I was still being retaliated against by John, and I had been pressured to resign a second time.

October 17, 2012 – My letter in response to John’s “two options” email (above, on Oct. 15) after I had apologized for my role in the what at the time I called an “affair.” (I have not considered my experiences with John to be an “affair” since I recovered from his manipulations.) I was attempting to be tongue-in-cheek. John extracted and then released this email on Mormonism Live and framed it as a “blackmail” email while leaving out that this was part of a larger conversation. When read in context of the above email, it’s clearly facetious.

January 2013 – Transcript excerpts from John’s supposed “Faith Reconstruction” podcast. John fabricated stories of people having sexual encounters at conferences as an excuse for shutting them down, when he was the one having sexual encounters at conferences. The episode was riddled with hypocrisy and the smoothing over of his narrative so he could avoid a “dishonorable” excommunication.’

February 2013 – My appeal to Harvard to drop classes without financial or academic penalty due to my deteriorating mental health caused by John’s highly public and continued re-writing of history which was affecting my reputation.

March 2013 – My initial charge with the Human Rights Commission of New Hampshire. After the John’s “Faith Reconstruction” podcast, I began to feel suicidal. It was very frightening. I had no idea how powerful suicidal ideation can be until I experienced John making insinuations about our sexual relationship in a podcast to hundreds of thousands of people. I decided to get an attorney, and as soon as I got the attorney I felt better.

May 1, 2013 – John’s response to the Human Rights Commission regarding my initial gentle charge. John had hired a Utah attorney to help him with a New Hampshire matter. Instead of mailing this response directly to the HRC as the HRC had requested, John’s attorney emailed it to my attorney and asked me to settle. My attorney’s interpretation of John’s attorney’s decision was that John’s attorney didn’t know that sexual harassment charges in New Hampshire are kept private and my attorney assumed that John’s attorney believed the charge would become public if it were sent to the HRC. My attorney told me that his interpretation of John’s response was that it was very lacking and was only an attempt to humiliate me on the public record. My attorney advised me to not give in to John’s intimidation strategies, simply refuse to settle, and invite John to file his response with the HRC.

Note: This above response is what John selectively edited from in the “Mormonism Live” episode on April 28, although he left out most of the attachments which provide much more context. I have included most of them (, which I have included above in the chronology.

September 2014 – Document I filed with the Human Rights Commission of New Hampshire when I realized that I wouldn’t be able to get an investigation because John did not pay one of his employees enough to get a 1099. I knew that if I continued to ask for an “investigation” I would lose the investigation based solely on the number of employees. I knew that if I simply withdrew my charge, John would claim I withdrew my charge because it was false. My solution was to refuse to settle and sign an NDA, file this document, withdraw my charge then move to the Mormon Discussions message board to show John that I would not be intimidated into silence and to begin keeping a public dated record of what had occurred.

August 2014 – Screenshots of Mormon Discussions message board thread in which John Dehlin attempts to “doxx” me for purposes of intimidation.

March 2018 – New Sexual Harassment policy established by the Open Stories Foundation and promoted by John Dehlin. It outlined that John’s behavior toward me, a subordinate, would have been considered sexual harassment at the time if OSF had implemented this policy from the outset.

March/April 2018 (exact date unknown) – John posts publicly about OSF’s new sexual harassment policy , claiming he has never violated it

May 3, 2018 – Correspondence #1 between me and OSF’s “Incident Response Team” regarding lack of sexual harassment investigation following newly published policy

May 3, 2018 – Correspondence #2 between me and OSF’s “Incident Response Team” regarding lack of sexual harassment investigation following newly published policy

April 2021 – Screenshot of Mormon Discussion board thread showing John acting “flirtatious” on Instagram with another woman’s profile who is not his wife. This is the same behavior he exhibited with my Facebook photos after we first met – liking multiple photos all at once (although I have never posted “sexy photos” or pictures of myself in swimwear on social media).
