Jenne de Normandie Eregiro Alderks was a teenage convert from Unitarian Universalism. When she joined the LDS church her mother, knowing somewhat of the strict gender roles in Mormonism, asked her, 'Can you really be a Mormon woman?'
One of the hallmarks of the restoration was Joseph Smith's openness to other spiritual traditions and ideas and this seeking has been kept alive in Mormon feminism. Jenne's spiritual seeking is part of a rich intergenerational tradition of Mormon women who quietly keep alive the faith's mysticism.
