Or Who the hell am I? Or Who the hell do I think I am? ("She said hell. I will no longer read this blog. Now excuse me while I get ready to attend a PG-13 movie.")
Y'all wanna know what 'technically Mormon' means. I'd like to know what it means as well. (cue 80's sitcom laugh track)
In my virgin post, I used words like, Heavenly Father, Spirit, Savior, Holy Ghost, and Men are that they might have joy. There are LDS ideologies that still work for me, like God and Love and Joy- actually these are all interchangeable terms as far as I'm concerned. In the post, there was a specific audience I was targeting first and foremost, so I spoke in that language. I was not trying to pull the wool over your eyes or take the mickey out of you. I simply wanted the readers of the LDS persuasion to understand that I understand where you're coming from. I come from where you come from- these principles and doctrines. I may use different language for these concepts nowadays, but the concepts are the same.
So am I inactive? Am I apostate? Am I anti?
I am Ashley.
I am on a journey. Just like you. There is no right or wrong place for me to be on my journey. I am meant to be exactly where I am, just like you are.
Still feel like I'm being vague? Not my intention. I am evaluating and re-evaluating my entire life right now. I also don't feel like I need to come to any conclusions, right now or ever. But I certainly may one day.
I, Ashley, have made at least one clear choice in the past couple of years: to err on the side of Love- a word, an idea, a force that I use with reverence.
