31 Days of Faith {My Religion}

Yes, I don't drink.
No, I am not boring.
Yes, I am a Mormon.

Starting on Monday as part of my 31 Days of Faith series, I will be sharing about my religion.  I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  There is a lot of misinformation and misunderstandings regarding my faith.  There are people with an axe to grind who take a portion of the truth and distort it into strange awkwardness for personal gain; "Supposed Experts."  Because there is a Mormon running for President, some people say this is a "Mormon Moment."  Lots of members say they love this.  Let me be honest here, I do not.  I do not like hearing hurtful lies spread about my faith.  I do not like feeling as if I live under a microscope.  I did not like that someone with deep seeded hatred for those of the Mormon Faith threatened my Missionary Son with a gun.  But, I am putting myself out there in the hopes of changing at least one person's opinion.  I have no axe to grind, no reason to lie to you.  I am just sharing the basic beliefs and tenants of my religion that I hold so dear in the hopes of dispelling some of the awful things people say and believe about us and replacing that with understanding and respect.

I am not going to preach to you, just share what I believe.  I am open to respectful questions.  Just please remember I am a daughter of God, a REAL person on the other side of this computer screen, with feelings just like you.


  1. Good for you! There are a LOT of misconceptions. There are a lot of angry people out there. I don't think anyone can be right when they are so angry. Anger blocks logic, reason, compassion. Since we live in a country where freedom of belief is protected, people should be more interested in learning about what other people believe without being offended.

  2. What a great thing to do! I hope it's a learning experience for your readers, but also for you!


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
