Saints and Sisters...A Tribe for LDS Women

want to share something that is very special to me— even sacred to my heart.
A couple months ago my friend Wendy started a new group for LDS Sisters on a new social media platform called Tribalry. She invited me to join. At first I wasn't interested nor excited about it. I'm already on Facebook and that's all the social media I have time for, I thought. But this felt different. As I looked into it more I not only knew in my heart that I wanted to join, but I knew in my heart that I needed to join.
So I did.

Saints and Sisters has become a place where I can share my true self as an LDS woman and dedicated disciple of Christ, in a loving and deeply personal environment. As I've gotten to know many of the other sisters on the forum, I can't help but feel a deep connection with them, something I've never felt on any other spiritually-related-online group! I also feel that Saints and Sisters is a refuge from the world; it is a place where I can safely share my gospel views and opinions without the bombardment of haters or negative naysayers, which are so prevalent on other platforms out there. (There are no Facebook trolls on this group, waiting to pounce and denounce the beliefs I hold so dear to my heart.)

Saints and Sisters shares weekly posts with uplifting spiritual content. The content is created from the genuine thoughts, experiences, and insights of a diverse group of LDS sisters. (I am a bi-monthly contributor, which has been a huge blessing in my life!)
To me, this forum is much like being in a Relief Society meeting with all your favorite, most inspiring friends, whilst discussing the things that mean the most to our hearts. 
The spirit is radiating! The content is inspirational! The feelings I get when I read these heartfelt stories of  hope, happiness, perseverance, and faith from women who share my faith helps me feel my own confidence and worth in this world. 
Lastly, I can feel God's hand in this online group. It was created from the humble and thoughtful desires of one woman's hope to connect LDS women across the world, in unity and purpose of Christ.

I am so grateful to be a part of Saints and Sisters. I eagerly invite all my LDS Sisters to join, participate, belong, and feel the love wherever you may be in your spiritual journey.
