About

In short:
I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter of the most amazing God, and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

 

Not in short:
I love to ponder, and I love to put my thoughts into words. Honestly, I probably think too much. I overthink. My brain gets crowded. It’s a problem.

As good ole Plato once said, “necessity is the mother of invention.” So there we have it. I had a problem, here was my solution. Beautiful Musing was born.

I chose that title for my site not because I think my thoughts – or the brain that creates them- is anymore beautiful than anyone elses. I mean, it could be. Who knows. Who am I to judge, really… Brains.

What I do believe is that our ability to think and reason for ourselves, to seek out light and truth, and identify it with our hearts and minds is a beautiful thing. It’s a divine gift.

Words have power not because they’re innately special, and not because the person speaking them is special, but because we connect on a deep level with what they are saying. The meaning behind the words. Truth.

It’s why it doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in, or what language you speak. We all have this inner sense for truth, and when we hear it we recognize it. What an amazing ability to be able to hear something and feel it at the same time.

Words, built on truth, can resonate. They can touch the deepest crevices of your soul. Truly the thoughts that give birth to those words are beautiful musings.

That’s what I hope to do here. To spread light and truth in what limited, fallible way that I can. To give you something that resonates with me, with the hope that it resonates with you. I don’t know if I’m up to the task, but I’m going to try.
