Bethany Joy Lenz Shares How She Left a Cult

Also reassuring were the “wild, vivid dreams” Lenz experienced as she began thinking about her exit from the cult. 

“I was very frustrated in my faith and I had lost a lot of it along the way,” she detailed. “And one of my prayers was just sort of like, ‘You have to just meet me where I am because I don’t even know if I know who you are anymore,’ And that’s how God just kept showing up for me in spite of the fact that I was thrusting a middle finger up into the air and being like, ‘Screw you!'” 

While she’s “looking forward to detailing all those specific moments” in her memoir, Lenz, mom to 12-year-old Maria, is also sharing her personal evolution through her songwriting—including “Strawberries,” a country anthem about body acceptance inspired by her friend’s enviable “skinny little ankles.”
