Leibster Blog Award
On behalf of our writers and contributors, thank you!
I am grateful to send the love back Jen's way with her blog that profiles her immeasurable courage and her heart and wisdom.
To pass the love along, I want to nominate a few other blogs for the same honor.
Runtu's Rincon is a witty and insightful blog by one of my favorite bloggers in the blogosphere. The author of the blog has also published a book in the past year about his mission experiences in Bolivia. While he muses on all things Mormon, I am touched by his respect for the people involved. I love this blog for its wit, intelligence, and integrity.
Not Very Useful Truths is and has been one of my favorites for a very long time. LIfeLongGuy is another one of those writers who just happens to touch on the exact thought I was having, even before I knew I had it. His words are resonating and heartfelt.
Though I am sure that she will be the recipeint of many awards, I cannot fail to mention Kiley over at We Were Going to Be Queens. She is the Queen of blogging for sure. Few blogs have touched my heart as much as Kiley's has and I watch for her latest posts. As she shares her thoughts and reflections and she manages to do it in a voice that hits me very deeply. Kiley is one of those people I hope to meet in person someday, just so I can tell her how amazing she is.
There are multiple reasons why I love Doves and Serpents. From the Ride to Church to the thoughtful Dear Jack posts, I really love this blog. Heather Olson Beal writes the words I wish that I had in my own head.
Laatly is a relatively new discovery for me, Oxymormon Girl is another witty blog that captures my attention. She sates clearly that this is not a blog meant for faithful and believing Latter-day Saints, but for those who exist on the fringes of Mormonism. So far what I like about this log is the open and frank discussion about Mormonism and the blogger's experiences through her faith journey.
As Jen posted over on her blog, if you choose to pass the love on, do the following:
The Rules are:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers.
5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma.
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.
This is The Peacewriter.
