Two of my favorite bloggers have created posts recently that inspired me to share these thoughts:
Camielle at RealWomenAreAlaskan is helping to debunk myths about Mormons including "cult" ideas. Please read her post here. It's informative and thorough.
Lindsey at the r house posted her I Am A Mormon profile recently and it inspired me to create mine.
You can see my Mormon.org profile in its entirety here. On my profile page I share some thoughts that are really tender in my heart. I would be so happy to share this part of me with you. Here's an excerpt:
For those who don't know, "Mormon" is a nick-name which members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were given because of our acknowledgment of The Book of Mormon as scripture. With the nick name and the scriptures, it is thought by some that we are not Christians. But we are! The subtitle of The Book of Mormon is: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. We read and believe the Bible - both the Old and the New Testament as well.

I sincerely hope to have not offended anyone with this post. Also, please know this: I acknowledge all people as good, as brothers and sisters with the same Heavenly Parentage regardless of faith or absence of faith. In opening my deep feelings, I hope that you have understood it in the way I feel it.
