Greetings! Stopping by after listening to All Things Considered today? So glad you did. This is Ask Mormon Girl, a question-and-answer column I write for folks (non-Mormons and Mormons alike) from my own *personal* *unorthodox* *not-official* *flawed* and *human* point of view. This site has also grown a wonderful community of commenters who often give better answers than I do. I thank them all for their kindness and wisdom.
If you’d like to stay in touch and get news about the January release of The Book of Mormon Girl: Stories from an American Faith on Audible.com and iTunes, please be sure to follow @askmormongirl on Twitter, or send a “howdy” to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be sure to message you when the audiobook is out.
Here are links to two recent columns that will give you a feel for what we do here.
A few weeks ago, a non-LDS AMG reader asked “What do Mormons believe about African-Americans?” My answer is here.
And this column gets lots of questions from folks inside the faith who are experiencing a faith transition–a change in the way they are thinking or feeling about their relationship to Mormonism. Many Mormons experience a time when they need to step away from the faith and evaluate their beliefs. And many of us come back. Here’s a question from an LDS reader: ”After seven years away from Mormonism, I’m hungry to come back. But how?“
For writing on Mormonism and politics, please visit my column at Religion Dispatches. The Ask Mormon Girl column also runs every other Monday at the legendary Feminist Mormon Housewives. I am very proud to be a part of the FMH community. Mormonism is our home, and places like FMH and AMG strive to make it a place welcoming of honest exploration, kindness, humor, and humanity.
Thanks for stopping by. Please come back soon.
