“Transitions: The Mormon Migration From Religion to Relationship” is a video series and workbook aimed at supporting Latter-day Saints making the switch to evangelical or mainline Protestant Christianity. It was created by the Western Institute for Intercultural Studies, an evangelical nonprofit organization.

The first video addresses finding new individual and collective identity; the second covers friends, loved ones, marriage and children issues; the third goes over sorting out new church culture; the fourth examines “God’s Grand Story”; the fifth explores the mission and community of God; and the sixth looks at “life in the new heavens and new earth.”
