I ventured out into the eye of the storm not to assess the damage or search for something lost.

I ventured out to be reminded even if just for a few moments what peace

Sounds like,

and sunlight feels like.

I wanted to remember that not all wind destroys, that there is

beauty in a gentle breeze.

Lightning can branch across a darkened sky without striking the Earth, and rain can return to a harmless rhythm of drips and taps.

On softened ground my fear subsided as I recognized that my foundation was all I would need to start over.

And while the chaos spun at the edge of my repose, I knew in that moment I was whole again, “I AM” and no storm can carry that away.

I didn’t venture out to assess the damage or find something lost, but when the storm closed back around me the damage no longer mattered and I had discovered something I never knew was lost.

We believe our strength is in the structure that surrounds us; the walls that make up our careers, our religion, our roles. It isn’t until the storm rages and rips those walls away that we find our strength is at the core of who we are, not what we are.

who we are

Welcome to The Peacewriter.

We all want to belong somewhere, to someone. It is a basic human need.

If you have ever experienced a period of doubt or questioned your beliefs in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you know that this is not a minor thing. It is tantamount to a crisis, and one that can be life altering.

Lose your testimony, and you stand to lose everything that matters.

There are those who exist on the fringes of the Church, who feel disenfranchised, even unwanted. If you are single, gay or lesbian, feminist, atheist, or uncorrelated, it can be tough to feel like a part of the community. You may feel that you do not belong.

You belong here.

If you have ever loved someone who endured a faith crisis, you know that there are a lot of gray areas. Uncertainty is the dominant force; black and white become moot points.

Those who have walked the same path share a common bond, understood by few who have not traveled the same road.

This is the place to share common experiences, to find a voice, to be heard. This is the place to seek after peace, and to find it in the common ties we share.
