We are excited to announce that we’ve adopted two more ZDs: Beatrice and Galdralag, from the outstanding blog Both Sides Now.
Galdralag shares a bit of their history:
Beatrice and I (Galdralag) met as missionaries when she became my trainer. For our very first companionship study she suggested that we research the role of Eve. I knew then we would be good friends. We quickly learned that we had a surprising amount of common interests – we both loved accompanying people on the piano, we both enjoyed reading for pleasure, and we both had lots of questions about the doctrine and culture of the religion we were raised in.
Since then we’ve both come home and gone on to grad school. Beatrice completed her doctorate (in Child Psychology), and I’ve still got a couple of years to go before I finish my dissertation (in History). Beatrice has married and become a mother, and, though I’ve been in a couple of serious relationships, I’m still single. Over the years we’ve continually exchanged long emails about issues relating to feminism, gender studies, and our own places in the LDS church.
And, last but not least, because inquiring minds want to know: Galdralag is the name of the magic spell meter in Old Norse poetry.
Welcome! It’s great to have you here.
