Over at FMH there is a post I wish I had written. Artemis talks about faith and challenging it with a clarity I needed put into words, since it is pretty much what has been stewing in my mind. http://www.feministmormonhousewives.org/?p=398 Check it out if you are interested.

My faith is something that I am finding is more like a roller coaster than a steady, even, boat ride. And, I am learing this is ok, it’s kind of like mothering- sometimes I rock, sometimes not so much, and not panicking during the “not-so-much” is a pretty sane thing to master. So now, as I watch my faith as well as my mothering skills go through “grand cycles’ (like hurricanes) I am learning to roll with it, a-la Steve Martin in “Parenthood”. Actually, MMW had a post on the grand cycles of hurricanes and how they are analogous to being a mother. Wish I knew how to make a real link with a cute caption…
