Are you addicted to Mormon blogs?

I am!  It does help that I am a Mormon.  But it is fun to see other mom's take on family life, food, crafts, money, and right now I am studying up on teenagers.  Oh! boy oh boy, I have teenagers.  You can see from the picture that I am starting into the big thick chapter of teens.  I really don't know what to do when my most level headed child all of sudden starts telling me off.  What in the world?  Where did that come from?  I am still in shock mode, and have not embraced all of the moodiness and quick sassy mouths that have started.  I am wondering if I need a therapist.  No, seriously.  I have already emailed my friend whose husband is a psychologist and asked for some advice.  I will soon be asking a girl(who is a family therapist) at my church, 'Who is good in town?'  My good long time friends and I are doing lunch next week and I have teenagers on the agenda.  I want to know how they handle things.

OK. Back to the point.

There has been some hoop-la over Mormon bloggers in the past few years.  You can read articles here and here.  I came across a fun project last year at 71 toes and then there was a recent article in Deseret News about the project and I figured that was my push to do it. The project is called B.O.M.B- Book of Mormon Bloggers.  It originated over at Or So She Says.  If you would like to learn more about the Mormons and what we believe you can email me ( with your address and I will send you a Book of Mormon with a packet of letters containing thoughts from other Mormon Bloggers.  Or you can click below on any of those participating and see what their thoughts are and they will do the same---send you a Book of Mormon with a packet.  Here is a list of those participating:

  4. Great post. It is so true, I read way more Mormon Mom blogs than any other. I think for me personally I relate, but it is nice to read the positves about life, read how others focus on family, home, and church.
