We are really, really pleased to announce that a new blogger is joining BCC. We’ve been impressed with Kris Wright’s writing over at A Grain of Salt and at Feminist Mormon Housewives, so we bribed and threatened Microsoft-style until she agreed to join us here. Here’s what you need to know about Kris:
- She joined the church at 21, at the end of her fourth year of university, taking over a year to join the church (Kris notes, "watch for how I became a Mormon and a feminist in the same year").
- After living in the south of France and travelling around Europe, she returned to do a master’s in 19th century American women’s history.
- To make a long story short, she now has four children: 3 boys and a girl (ages 10, 8, 6 and 4.)
Kris is really interested in alternative energy and house building, especially straw bale houses (which results in her hearing lots of three little pigs jokes from members of her ward). Before this fall, she was an upstanding citizen of cyberspace who just e-mailed, googled and went to Amazon occasionally — but then, she met Kristine (who casually mentioned that she blogged). She decided to check out some Evil Blog and the rest is history — plus a lot of unfinished domestic tasks.
Welcome Kris! We’re glad to have you aboard.
