Coming to terms with my domesticity

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.

I ran very far to get away from my Mormon roots. I balked at everything domestic. I wasn’t going…

The end of the world

Was anyone part of the rapture and end of the world last Saturday? I had a vision that I was at the judgment bar and there was Simon Cowell on the left, Donald Trump on the right and Allah in the middle. “ Jesus, Where is Jesus “ I said ? Donald pointed his finger at me and said ‘’ Jesus, He was fired

Preserving Mixed Faith Relationships

Introduction

When you first arrive to the other side of faith, or at least to an opposing side to one or more of your family, friends or acquaintances, there are a few pitfalls in which one could accidentally sabotage an otherwise desirable relationship and fellowship with them.  Hopefully by identifying those pitfalls and outlining approaches to preserving the relationship we will be aided in a more peaceful transition from having been on the same page in regards to…

This past week has been invigorating and saddening. Last week I graduated from High School and left Mormonism all in the same day. The notes I wrote, ( http://exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,184972,184972#msg-184972 ) detailed to my family…

Harbours a great distaste for "Organized Religion" and an intolerance for uneducated comments on World Religions

9/11/2001 - America, where could we have been more true?

America, and more distinctly, the United States, is often referred to as "a nation of believers".  While those "believers" range in denominations from Christianity, to Jews, to many other religions, all the way to non-"believers", and though the individual faith beliefs may vary in definition, style or lack thereof, most of us in that range would agree that we are a land of principles and fundamental values.  Values that include honesty, integrity, forgiveness, and repentance.  With the…
