Amy, I resonate with your words. I too was raised half Mormon, by Mormon parents and a very long line of Mormon ancestors. Please know that your words today, and so many other times offer solace and understanding to a heartsore mother, wife and daughter in the east coast. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, raw, uncensored and bare for all of us to ponder and learn from. You do make other's lives better.


I really can't know your struggle, as I've never been Mormon (or "half-Mormon," as the previous poster cleverly wrote), but I've read lots of stories that share elements of what you're going through. I feel for you, and I hope you can find peace and joy -- you ARE enough, you are beautiful, you are whole and complete and loved, right here, right now, just as you are. You articulate things so well; I've long admired your blog, and I feel for you as you struggle.

Will you let an Episcopalian pray for you?


All any of us can do is try to be the best version of ourselves. I grew up in the Presbyterian church. I spent a great deal of time in youth groups and choirs and as church treasurer. My husband was never comfortable with the church. When our son came along, he attended with me but there were so few children his age, he hated going. After years of conflict, I decided that staying home with my family was most important. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made.


Good one as I was thinking about this.
