My boss and I were talking about what time we get up in the morning. He was surprised to find out I get up at 5:00 in the morning. I told him it was because I teach a class. When he asked what type of class, I told him Seminary.

I was chatting on the bus with a fellow passenger about labels. I mentioned how the phrase “I’m Mormon” automatically raises stereotypical ideas in the minds of non-Mormons, and we discussed how that is problematic because a personality is more diverse than simply one’s religion. Even the phrase “I’m Mormon” can mean different things to different people.

I ran into an acquaintance of mine at the university today. Out of the blue, she asked me about seminary. I explained to her that it is like a bible study class for high school students. We talked about it for 5 or 10 minutes.
