Before you Read

This blog is a very straight forward approach to dispelling myths regarding The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormons). All comments are moderated, any comments of an intolerant or abusive nature will not be accepted.

Please do not take offense to the way things are presented here. I am a very blunt woman and I write these things not directed to any one person but in an effort to address my frustrations regarding the intolerance of my beliefs.

I am a History Major and my specialty includes the time period in which Christ lived and in which Christianity was formed. I have also spent my life studying other faiths and beliefs. Please know that after all of my studies and my continued studies, I am firm in my beliefs and I only wish to dispel myths. This is in no way an approach to forcing my beliefs on anyone; jut a way to open eyes and build bridges. The misunderstandings are great, but so is the close-minded views of the world. Please read this blog with a desire to learn and to understand.

Books you should read

So I am taking a break from my normal weekly post. This week I am recommending you to read some books. You can find them on Amazon, the Library or local bookstore. Most of the stupid and ignorant things that are said and done in the name of religion is because people do not take the time to research or study before they open their mouths. Wars have been fought and people have died in the name of Religion that could be prevented if people just took the time to understand. You do not have belief it or follow the teachings but you really should take the time to learn. I have spent years reading and researching religions of the world all in the name of understanding my own faith more. So pick up a book....But I caution you that there are books for every argument and if you really want to understand something go straight to the source. Both the Dummies books and the Idiots Guide books are great because they are easy to understand and written by reputable resources. I would also encourage you to visit as linked in the side of this blog for more information. If you have the ability in your area check out Deseret Book or Deseret Book online for good titles to look for and read. I also recommend Latter Days by Coke Newell it is a very wonderful and direct book full of history and insight into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
