I write so that I have a place to be creative and to express my feelings. I write to try and create something artistic. I write to try and figure things out. I write to tell my own story.
In my left side bar you will see a book that I have contributed to. It is a collection of essays written by Mormons (16 of us to be exact) about life, families, and identity. I have read many of the entries in this book, and in doing so I have found myself inspired and connected to other people in a way I never knew was possible. This book has been put together by my friend DeNae Handy as a real act of love and interest in our culture and in our writing about it. I encourage you to purchase a copy or two and share it.
