The three Barker brothers would often engage in private e-mails and phone calls with each other and their friends about Mormonism. The three decided it would be more fun to create a blog where all their friends and family could get together and hammer out some of the idiosyncrasies of Mormonism. Here they hope to provide a safe, fair, and balanced space to discuss the complexities, difficulties, and beauty of their Mormon tradition.

Quote of the Month
"Brothers and sisters, as good as our previous experience may be, if we stop asking questions, stop thinking, stop pondering, we can thwart the revelations of the Spirit. Remember, it was the questions young Joseph asked that opened the door for the restoration of all things. We can block the growth and knowledge our Heavenly Father intends for us. How often has the Holy Spirit tried to tell us something we needed to know but couldn’t get past the massive iron gate of what we thought we already."
