It would likely be seen as a trial in her life. Last year I trained for and ran a marathon, which was a pretty good distraction, but with the move recently and work being quieter than usual I'm finding it tougher than I have before.
The fact that she is dating an atheist non-Mormon shows pretty serious lack of conformity already. I feel like now more than ever, I am expected to just not have an opinion about anything or even a french femdom in how we spend our time together. If you like her, and I'm assuming you do, I would suggest you continue the relationship and see how things pan out.
