My name is Alicia, and I am a Mormon, as the new catch phrase goes. I was born and raised in the Mormon/LDS church and I LOVED IT! For me, Mormonism really worked and it brought me a great deal of joy. I’ll write much more about that as I go. I am also something else now though too, something very different than a traditional Mormon. I sometimes feel like I am two people living in the same body, holding contradicting beliefs simultaneously. Sounds a little convoluted, I know! I hope that someday it will be a little less complicated for me, and that maybe I can slowly merge those two people back into one. I wish I could tell you what that person will be like, but I honestly can’t. I could guess, based on where I am now, but I’d most likely be wrong.
