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 […]

I Grit My Teeth and Fake a Smile
