I Grew Up In The Bible Belt

I'm a southern belle to the core. I'm from TN and I adore my beloved south. But my joy in my new home, Boise ID is great.

You see I'm a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I chose to join with my husband and family in 2002. We didn't ask anyone else to join, didn't even shout it from the rooftops. It was a soul deep, quiet, and beautiful change we as a familial unit implemented.We believe in Jesus Christ, the Bible, The Book of Mormon and morals

However, over the years people began to find fault with us. Nothing we ourselves did but because we were different.

I'm LDS, I have coworkers, friends and family who are not. They are Agnostic, Wiccan, Pagan, Buddhist, LDS, Baptist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ etc and I love and accept them. I wrote each religion with a capitol letter because I respect them as well. This is a nonnegotiable concept for me.

They know what I believe and I know what they. With mutual respect we learn from another even though we have different ideas. For it is in our differences we are unique.


  1. great post. I'm LDS too and I know what you mean with the respect factor, let's just accept one another for who we are and not our beliefs. Just because one person is one religion and you don't agree with them doesn't mean you can't go along.

  2. hey you can not judge one by the cover and then your girls look like they had fun any way do what you feel is right

  3. Thanks gals I appreciate the support and comments.
