BCC is proud to announce the addition of a few regular contributors to our line-up. Please welcome Melissa DeLeon Mason and Tracy M. They have both graced our pages with wonderful insight and we are looking forward to their continued writing.
Melissa M. is a self proclaimed loud and proud Texan who left that great state to attend Notre Dame, where she studied Political Science & European Studies and also where she joined the Church and married the illustrious Patrick Mason. After graduation, she worked with the local homeless population and became interested in issues of poverty. Melissa has taken the last few months to “find herself” and pursue art, selling her first painting earlier this month. She also looks forward to an Irish national championship.
Tracy M. is an artist, designer, and convert to the Mormon faith. Three little red-headed monkeys rule her days (and too often her nights). While her husband carves crop circles with a fork in the ice cream in the middle of the night, Tracy runs her own textile design company from her home. The Monkeys are 5 years, 3 years and 6 months old; writing keeps her sane. Seriously.
Tracy began blogging when a young childless woman on another blog wrote that stay-at-home moms lack identity and self esteem. Now Tracy maintains her own site, where you can read the letter she sent that woman, and is also a regular contributor at Mormon Mommy Wars.
