Intro Post

Hi guys!

I'm Jenn, a first year law student at the University of Chicago, and I know Allison through the law school. I'm new to both blogging and religion, which makes this blog an apt one for me to learn about both. I've never been particularly religious, but with the conversion of a close college friend to the LDS faith and other LDS influences in my life, I've come to treasure and appreciate how faith and the gospel have enriched my life. However, with that faith have come ideological struggles with balancing faith, advanced degrees (especially with loans), the prospect of motherhood (however distant that may be), and all of the other tricky things that seem to come with being a woman of faith. I'm eager to hear how others who have been in this position for far longer than I wrestle with some of these tricky ideas.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Yay, looking forward to getting to know you as well! (and meeting you in a few months, hurrah!) - I am eager to read your questions and your perspective on the issues you mentioned.

Looking forward to many good conversations Jenn! So many of the issues you'd like to discuss are something all of us are dealing with or will at some point. Welcome!
