Computer monitor as mirror?

I randomly ran across a blog post today, from a blog I’ve never been to before, and I was struck by how similar it is to me and how I felt a couple of years ago in my faith change process. It’s called “I’m Coming From Where I Have Been” by thatwifeblog.com.

.

Very very similar. Except, I didn’t have kids, I didn’t read any fence-line research (like Feminist Mormon Housewives or even any current event feminist literature) until well after had I left, and my issues for leaving were (in some ways) a little different and (in other ways) a LOT different.

.

But, otherwise, very very similar. So much so that the blogger even said the word. That word. The one that’s been tagging along ever since my faith crisis. This word: Authenticity. It probably the word that has defined who I am and how I have shaped who I have become and am still becoming. Authenticity… I won’t even attempt to delve into this extremely abstract concept, but it something that, for me, was unreachable before my faith crisis. And, afterward, became … my religion, really.
