Are You A Sufficient Mormon Housewife?

I made a new friend last week.  I did a free mini sessionwith someone I had never met. That is one of the best parts about what I do.  I get to visit with and love women all over the world!

I have thought a lot about my new friend since I met her over the phone.

She is a convert to the LDS church.

She is dating someone who has been a member of the LDS church his whole life.

She has some fears around not knowing how to be a “sufficient mormon house wife”.

She worries that she doesn’t know the “traditions” of the mormon church.

To my new friend I wanted to say,  those are just thoughts!  There is no sufficient way!

Any traditions are just that, tradition.

Be you!

Be you and bring that to the LDS Church.

When you feel anxious or worried about not “fitting the part” you are looking to other people to show you how to fit in.

Why don’t we all just decided for ourselves where we fit and then be ok with it.

We are the ones that show other people how to think about us.  

If we are confused about what we want to be, others will be confused about who we are.

If we feel bad about not knowing mormon tradition and judge ourselves for it, we will think that others are judging us.

AGAIN:  Be you!

Be you and bring that to the LDS Church.

The only thing that is a fact is that there is a religious institution entitled The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Women are members of this church.  Women all over the world are members of this church.  You either are, or are not, a baptized member.  It’s that simple.  All the rest is thoughts.

Being a LDS Wife means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.  You get to choose what that means.

There is no such thing as a “sufficient mormon house wife”.  That is a thought.

You get to decide what sufficient means!

You get to decided what being an LDS wife means to you.

You get to decided what an being LDS women means to you.

For me it means that I want to be like Christ.

My goal is to live my life in a way that makes me happy because I know that I am living like him.  That will look very different for me then it does for you.

And that, my friend, is OK!  That is the way it is supposed to be!

By the way, I love making new friends!  Lets do a free mini session.  I am holding a spot for you.  I leave room on my calendar for two free sessions a week.  Make sure one of them is you by clicking the link.  Talk Soon!
