He simply started out the book talking about how he didn’t really belong when his show was announced. Sister Wives was the first show of its kind to hit networks.

Kody Brown explains God speaking to him

I don’t consider followers of another religion any less worthy in God’s eyes or in mine. I don’t believe that what’s appropriate for one person is necessarily appropriate for all.” He gets that this life isn’t for everyone. Kody and his four wives are living what works for them.
