Change and Cherish Blog details my observations regarding politics, religion, dating, and anything in which I happen to find passion. In return, I ask that readers challenge my beliefs and understanding with their own so I can see the world in ways I haven't before.
Some creative works take some time to develop an identity. Change and Cherish Blog is no exception. It began as a way for me to continue my habit of daily journalling, which I picked up while serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As it was, each blog post contained my thoughts on a mistake I'd made the previous day (the 'Change') and my thoughts about a success I'd encountered on that same day (the 'Cherish').
Now, that format is dead. Change and Cherish Blog has undergone a lot of changes in the past two years, including dropping from seven updates a week to three and becoming more of an opinion/political blog. Regardless, my goals to promote widespread tolerance and true freedom of speech have remained central tenets of my blog.
While I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, nicknamed the Mormon Church, I intend for the messages I present in Change and Cherish to be non-denominational. Rather than speak too much on specific religious doctrines, I seek my inspiration from the human experience all of us become intimately familiar with throughout our lives. While it is true I wear my beliefs proudly, I want this blog to be welcoming for all regardless of their differing beliefs.
So if you're looking for a blog that demands free, open discussion, then you've found your match. Welcome to the list field, and I hope you'll poke around.
