TMI Friday: Mormon Beauty, Modesty, and Shame

Sometimes you feel something, but it’s not an appropriate time to say it. For me, I tend to keep my mouth shut (literally), bring it up on Twitter, and then talk about it on my blog later. Now it’s time to talk. Today’s topic: Modesty. There have been many talks, articles, blog posts, and firesides […]

Divinity

“Ladies, we are like Divinity. Some of us are smooth, some are crusty. But we all taste good.” -Rea Allsop Today in Relief Society, one of my favorite women in my old/new ward gave the lesson.

TMI Friday: Don’t Mess With My Peeps, Yo!

I’m Nicole, and I’m a Mormon. But I don’t always feel comfortable talking about religion on my blog. As I’m sure most people do in their life, I have had questions about my faith. I have heard unsavory stories of things that have happened through the history of my church. I have lived half of […]

Like a Sun with Perfect Light

Mormons and Media

Some of my readers, online friends, and acquaintances in general have asked me what I think about HBO’s Big Love portrayal of a Latter-Day Saint temple ceremony. I will defer you to the official statement of the Church, found at Mormon.orgOfficial Statement from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints:SALT LAKE CITY 9 March […]

Home is a Special Kind of Feeling

Lately on Sundays, I’ve been trying to listen to music that is more spiritual than my usual fare. I grew up on the classical music and Mormon Tabernacle Choir, of which my Uncle David and friend Neil are currently members. It’s still a dream to someday be a part of the Mo-Tab. Last weekend, I […]

Integrity and Virtue

On Sunday, I attended my last week in the Plymouth Ward. I have been serving in the primary and nursery for my tenure in the ward, but really wanted to attend Relief Society for my last week. I’m so glad I did. There was a combined lesson/program on finding JOY in the season through serving […]
