I have been working on my Mormon.org profile. We had a talk in church a couple of weeks ago that urged us to be a missionary online and to set up our profile. Mine is complete, but is pending review (guess they want to make sure I'm not some crazy sharing false doctrine or something). I said truthful things, the right things...but there are some that I was thinking and didn't write in my profile...such as:
I am a Mormon BUT I don't sew, scrapbook, stamp or make my own bread. I blog, but I am not a photographer and my pictures are often blurry and have bad lighting. My home does not look like Pottery Barn. It is not organized and tidy. I have more junk drawers/cupboard/closets than organized ones.
I am a Mormon but my food storage isn't complete. My house is often messy and I yell at my children sometimes. Often I want to have a LONG "time out" and hide from my children. Some days I am depressed.
I am a Mormon and I often forget to read my scriptures until right before bed (or at all) and rush through or fall asleep during my prayers. My visiting teaching sometimes doesn't get done. Sometimes I gossip. Sometimes (taught by my husband) I swear.
I am a Mormon and am very imperfect. I am a Mormon and know that the Atonement of Christ is the only way I am going to get through this life with any semblance of sanity and the only way I am going to make it to live with my Heavenly Parents in the next life.
I am a Mormon. I am still trying to figure out my God given gifts. Sometimes I don't like the phrase, "Where much is given, much is required." Because that means A LOT is required of me because I have been SO blessed. Sometimes I want to coast through life.
I am a Mormon. I am human and very imperfect. I am a Mother. I am a Wife. I am a daughter, sister and friend. I am in love with my husband and children. I am a daughter of God.
