A few days ago, the 2011 Brodie Award winners were announced and regular Peacewriter contributor St. Jude was recognized for her poignant piece Forgotten Sacrifices. She won for Best Religion and Gender Discussion. We are honored to have St. Jude in our small group of writers .

St. Jude was not the only award winner from the Peacewriter family. Contributor and Peacewriter co-founder Tom Perry was honored when his Mormon Expression Voices interview,
A Farewell from Tom, won for Most Poignant Personal Story. Congratulations go out to Tom and Voices interviewer Heather C for this well-deserved win.

Shout It to the Universe by Ingrid Ricks

Ingrid has a post up over on Main Street Plaza. She writes about sharing her memoir Hippie Boy: A Girl's Story and the lessons learned.

" No matter what challenges you face, you can overcome them if you claim your power, find your voice, and shout it to the universe."

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.
