For readers that are “old hands” to the ‘nacle, the name Bored in Vernal is not new. BiV has her own blog and contributes to a few other sites around the ‘nacle. We’ve recently discovered that she has a bit of a taste for historical posts, and we’ve therefore invited her to do a guest stint here. Here’s what she has to say about herself (in third person, of course):
BiV is a woman of a certain age with years of church experience under her belt. She has been fascinated with issues of church history since her days at BYU in the Leonard Arrington years. Many years as an early-morning Seminary teacher have given her a familiarity with the scriptures–but she especially loves the unusual and obscure. BiV has done her time as a barefoot SAHM [for those uninitiated in feminist speech, like me, that means “stay at home mom,” I think] eagerly populating the earth. A move to Vernal, Utah coincided with her discovery of blogging and the birth of “Bored in Vernal.” BiV now teaches at an all-female university in Saudi Arabia.
Let’s welcome BiV as our latest guestblogger!
