Hey there -

I really liked this post. May I link to it in my LiveJournal?

Of course, Jessica -- links are free and always appreciated.

FWIW, there's a LiveJournal feed for this site if that makes it any easier to link.

Your first quote from Sis. Bushman reminds me of something my wife and I were talking about the other night. If we are honest with ourselves, we have to recognize that it would be statistically impossible for every worthy sister in the Church to marry a worthy man in the temple, and especially not if she dare look for one who is actually compatible with her. I wonder if by focusing exclusively on marriage and child-rearing as goals for young women, we implicitly ignore that fact. Absent the return of polygamy, this will be so far into the future. We are doing a disservice to the women of the Church by measuring their worth only by the husband they can attract and the resulting children.

The typical retort I hear to such a suggestion is that we have to teach the rule, not the exception. But Jesus left the 99 sheep and went after the "lost" 1, did he not?
