By the way… we are Mormon
September 26, 2012 by Shelley
How’s that for an ice breaker?! We have had a few comments, messages, and emails over the months asking us if we were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka Mormons. Religion isn’t a subject we talk about very often on HowDoesShe, and honestly, we don’t plan to talk about it much in the future either. But for the record, we are proud to publicly say that we (the founders of HowDoesShe.com) are indeed Mormons. That’s actually how “HowDoesShe” got started. We were all in the same ward at church. Since then we have all moved away, to three different states, and don’t see each other nearly as often. Sniffle.
We realize that religion is an extremely sacred subject and please know that we respect the beliefs of all individuals. We would hope you would be respectful of our faith as well.
Mormonism has been in the media a lot lately, and a group of us bloggers got together to share what makes us tick.
We recently stumbled across this movie clip about social media, and what a fabulous platform it is to share your beliefs with others. We feel so blessed to live in the United States of America where we are free to choose what we believe and have the ability to share our beliefs through all the amazing technology available to us.
You can request a free packet to learn a little bit more about our beliefs. In each packet, the bloggers below wrote their personal experiences of why they belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Melanie ~ Sugardoodle
Kierste ~ Brown Paper Packages
Shelley ~ How Does She?
Brooke ~ The Crafting Chicks
Ruthie ~ What’s Cooking With Ruthie?
Along with the blogger packet, you will find our favorite scriptures, the ones that have personally touched our lives, along with a free Book of Mormon. Yes we believe in the Bible, but we also believe in the Book of Mormon. Why the Book of Mormon too? Well, it would be impossible to really understand us without it. It plays a major part in our religion, our lives…and part of WHY we are Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is the ancient records of prophets who lived in the Americas before, during, and after Christ’s time on earth. Honestly, we think it’s the coolest book ever. So, there you have it. Between the bloggers’ thoughts and the Book of Mormon, I think you’ll get a fairly good idea about where we’re coming from.
Don’t worry, we aren’t trying to convert you today, tomorrow, or even next year. We just realize how much joy, happiness, and peace is brought into our lives through our beliefs, and we figured we might as well share it for those who would like to know. If you are interested in receiving a free blogger packet please send your name and mailing address to Mariel (fellow Blogger): email@example.com and one will be sent your way. No strings attached. We won’t share any information with our missionaries, so don’t be afraid of “Mormons” coming to get you. You can also go directly to Mormon.org to learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Also, feel free to email us directly with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
