As many of you know, Fiona Givens is a valued member of the Faith Matters Advisory Board and a frequent contributor to important conversations. Like countless members of the Church, we have benefited greatly from her passionate and insightful scholarship and teaching.
An article published in the Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday, May 8 has been interpreted by many readers as implying that Fiona’s position at BYU’s Neal A. Maxwell Institute was terminated due to her work on the subject of Heavenly Mother. We feel it’s important to clarify that this is not the case. Fiona chose to leave The Maxwell Institute and plans to focus on her own study, writing and other personal endeavors. We hope and expect to continue learning from Fiona’s expansive views of restoration theology.
Fiona has dedicated much of her life to helping members of the Church strengthen their faith and deepen their understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We honor her for her tireless efforts and look forward to continuing to support her work.
