Lessons Learned from The Book of Mormon

One of the best Christmas presents I received in 2013 was a ticket to see The Book of Mormon. A night out on the town with John + free babysitting from the grandparents + a little bubbly - I didn't really care what we were seeing, it was already a great night in my book. But, y'all, this musical was pretty awesome.

I was a little nervous that it would be a little too vulgar for my liking after my brother-in-law told us the title of one of the songs, but it was only slightly above my comfort level when it came to vulgarity. 

Pleasantly surprised, I walked away with a few life lessons. The main lesson being, believe what you want to believe and don't worry about what others think about it. Sure, mormonism sounds crazy to me, but it is a religion that makes lots of people happy. And that's really all that matters, right?

I mean, the beginnings of Christianity are just as absurd. And who am I to say that it isn't completely laughable to you. If you look at it from the view of an outsider, you can pick each religion apart and make any follower appear to be insane for believing. I'm not trying to start a religious discussion or offend anyone here. I'm just stating that I walked away from this musical with a feeling that we should all respect each others choice to worship the way they choose + laugh at ourselves every once and a while.

Happy Friday!
