Raise your hand if you already knew that or suspected such.
Kay. Now, raise your hand if you had no idea because I occasionally have questionable-ish language.
No, don't raise your hand. I'll feel like total crap. I'm going to work on that.
So, I don't know why I haven't mentioned that I'm Mormon before-- I guess subconsciously, I thought I was keeping things on here noncontroversial.
I mean, heck, sometimes I talk about hating to paint-- I 'spose that could be a little controversial to us DIY types. Maybe it gets a little "Lowes vs. Home Depot" all up in here from time to time--
but I don't think expressing what religion I practice need be a super touchy subject, does it?
Why am I sharing this now? Couple reasons. Mormonism is in the news a lot these days. And I've read and watched a couple a things lately about it that were very misinformed. Heck, I'd dare say just not informed at all. And that 's when I wrote a couple not-so-happy emails to the editors politely asking for corrections.
And, you know, the lovely ladies at How Does She? stepped forward and expressed their personal views, too. And I was way impressed. I knew I needed to man up and share, too.
So! Just know, if you've got questions, even just simple little clarification, you ask a Mormon. We spend a lot of time studying our own theology. A lot. Ask me. Or any of those other Mormon bloggers who've put themselves out there, too.
Lemme tell you what I believe, and then I'll shut it. I sure hope you know, that I really, really give a crap about my homies. My family is big to me. Huge. Like, mostest importantest.

Mormons are indeed Christian. We believe in Jesus Christ. And on a personal note, as I'm currently reading the gospels in the New Testament yet again-- well, there are no words for how much I love those books.
And finally, at the top of my list, my relationship with my Heavenly Father is of massive importance. I know that Heavenly Father knows and cares about me personally. I know it, and I know He knows I know it, too.
I hope we can still be friends. No matter where you live or what you believe, let's stay buds.
I'll tell you what: one of my favorite, fave.or.ite. things about reading in bloggy world, is that it gets me in touch with truly awesome people. People who care and are just doggone good people. And that's what this world needs. Fo sho.
