"Inspiration"
n the "Things I Miss About Mormonism" category, "inspiration" is pretty near the top. I put inspiration inside quotation marks because I still feel inspired by many things, I just don't feel it is as often. I love to teach. I love connecting with large grou...

Echoes
have created an echo chamber for myself. I don't think it's healthy. Most of the people with whom I surround myself agree with me and validate me. It feels good. I enjoy it. But again, I don't know if it's the right way to go. I don't know if that's the way...
