As a little girl/young women growing up in the church, all I remember is being told to do this, this, and this to be a good mom & housewife. I was taught to cook, sew, scrapbook and set tables. I was never asked what I wanted to be when I grew up as it was assumed I would marry a return missionary, he would work and I would take care of the kids. How prefect. Except that didn’t happen.

Over the last (almost) 12 years, I can't count how many in-depth conversations about religion, the differences between the 3 major belief systems, the comparisons between them, similarities etc, the list goes on and…Continue
