I have a special favor to ask of my international (aka. outside of the US) readers.
For the last few months I've been feeling prompted to do a series about Latter-day Saint women from around the world and how the gospel is growing in their countries. I received and email a few months ago from a reader in Finland talking about how since the dedication of the temple there they have seen increased interest and respect for the church. Her email reminded me that there are now more members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints outside of the US than there are inside and I couldn't help but think about how different LDS women's experiences must be all over the world. Call me nosy, but I would love to get a little glimpse into your lives!
I know that there is a great big handful of you from the UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Philippines, India, Brazil, and other exotic places that read my blog. What I'd like to ask is that if you live outside of the US, even if you aren't a "native" of that country, if you'd consider answering some of the questions I will send to you and/or writing a guest post for my blog about what the spiritual climate is in your country, how the Church is growing, and your experiences as an LDS woman. PLEASE don't be let the language barrier stop you. I am a good editor and don't mind touching up the grammar and spelling or helping you in any way you need. I'm not planning on doing the posts for awhile (probably not till after the baby comes) so you'd have plenty of time to put something together... and it doesn't have to be long.
If you are interested either leave me a comment or email me (heatherlady at gmail.com) with which country you are from and your email address and I will contact you soon.
Thanks! I can't wait to hear from you.
