Why are some of your favorite bloggers “Mormon”?

I thought I would take just a minute to get a bit personal and let you see a side of me that isn’t often shared. Sometimes it is fun to learn more about the person behind the projects, right?

Many of you probably know that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints {aka “a Mormon”}.

It is something I’ve never tried to hide, but it isn’t something I mention too often on this blog.

I have shared some creative projects for the LDS faith, but I’ve never given any explanations about Mormons and why I choose to practice this faith.

I feel like those who visit this site are here to see creative ideas- they don’t want to know my political preferences, my parenting advice (ha!) and they certainly do not want to be preached to. I try to keep the content light and as free from controversy as possible.

But lately there has been a lot about “The Mormon Church” in the media- those Mormons are everywhere, aren’t they??

And there are a lot of Mormon bloggers out there- have you noticed?

I know there are some of you who might be curious (or scared!) with the information put out by the media and you may have thought “Why is anyone Mormon?”

I decided to join together with some of my favorite Mormon mommy bloggers (perhaps there are some of your favorites too!) and we would like to give you the opportunity to find out a little of what we believe and why.

Here is how it works:

I would like to personally send you a packet filled with the personal thoughts of the following “Mormon Mommy Bloggers”:

Leigh Anne ~ Your Homebased Mom
Megan ~ Brassy Apple
Reachel ~ Cardigan Empire
Caroline ~ Armelle Blog
Carrian ~ Sweet Basil
Melissa ~ 320 Sycamore
Shandra ~ Deals to Meals
Kristyn ~ Lil’ Luna
Kelli ~ Lolly Jane
Becky ~ UCreate
Arianne ~ Still Parenting
Shawni ~ 71 Toes
Lindsey ~ The R House

…and ME!

Along with the blogger packet, we will also share with you our favorite scriptures, {the ones that have personally touched our lives} and I’ll send a free copy of The Book of Mormon.

Why the Book of Mormon? 

Because it is a major part of our lives and our religion. We believe The Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ.  It does not replace the Bible, it goes hand-in-hand with it. It is the ancient records of prophets who lived in the Americas before, during and after Christ’s time on earth.

Of course you are under no obligation to read it. Or get baptized, or go to our church, or have 9 kids. What you do with it is entirely up to you, I just want you to have it.

With the blogger’s thoughts and the Book of Mormon, you’ll be able to get a good idea about what we believe and why being a “Mormon” is so special to us.

Because this information includes personal thoughts and stories, this information is only available to those who truly want to know our beliefs and who have an open mind and aren’t looking to ridicule or debate.

And if you’re worried that I’ll use your info to send missionaries to your home, I won’t.  You get the packet, the Book of Mormon, and that’s it.  No strings attached.

Packages will be sent out during the last week of every month.

I just want to add that I have been a Mormon my entire life. I love it.

My beliefs give my life direction, they give me purpose and they give me comfort.
