Mother Wheel Bloggers at Daughters of Mormonism

A few months ago, three of our Mother Wheel bloggers participated in an episode on Daughters of Mormonism discussing the symbols of the LDS temple garments. Through our journeys on the Mormon Pagan path (or Morgan if you will), we have felt led to finding meaning in places where we did not think to find it. It started with trying to find Mother in Heaven in the temple. We actually first found her in the garment, which them prompted the episode as we further expound on what other meaning can be found there and how Morgan thought can come alive there.

Jenni, Descent and Dryad are joined by sister Morgan blogger Like Unto Eve. They describe a ritual that helps wearers of the garment connect to its symbols and meaning outside the temple as well as an alternative interpretation to the meanings of the symbols. The quarternity is described and then speculation abounds.

It was actually from this episode that Mormon Moon Circle was conceived. The facebook group Wildly Speculative Feminist Mormon Theology was also conceived at that time. In addition to the garment ritual designed by Mother Wheel bloggers that is shared in the episode, Jenni shares a menstruation ritual in the comments.

You can also find Descent's and Jenni's panelist interviews along with descriptions of their Morgan Pagan paths in their episodes:

Jenni's episode: "Not in Conflict"

Descent's episode: Connected to this Life Part 1 and Part 2

Jenni was also featured as a panelist on the following episodes:
Finding Her Everywhere: Symbols of the Divine Feminine
Good Girl Syndrome Part 1 and Part 2
Garments- To Cover Our Nakedness

Descent was also featured in the following episodes:
 "Be Yourself (within certain parameters)" — Depression & Mormon Women Part I
"Walking the Labyrinth" — Depression & Mormon Women Part II
"Elementally You" — Depression & Mormon Women Part III

For another DoM episode with a decidedly Mormon Pagan bent, listen to:
Eve as a Balance of Christ

Daughters of Mormonism has stopped recording new episodes but the world of Mormon women's podcasts is just beginning and Mother Wheel will have more information to share as new podcasts are developed.


  1. Is the Mother Wheel group planning to start a podcast? I love how you've got all your episodes here on a list. It's wonderful to see all your voices and how much they've been present on Daughters of Mormonism. I think you all have so much to offer. I do hope you'll start a podcast. I've put up a tutorial on how to do it and I'm happy to answer questions.

    And, also, thank you for being part of all the miracles that took place on that podcast. Blessings on you all.

  2. Not MotherWheel specifically, but several of us are working on Asherim, which will included pagany/eastern spirituality integrated with mormonism, as well as feminist issues that are dear to our hearts, particularly those relating to women's health (pregnancy, birth, birth-related professional work, breastfeeding, etc). You remember how far we ranged in our short podcast...we already have a good sized list of planned episodes. We figure we should get 6 or 8 ready to go before we publish teh first one, so that we're ahead and don't have stressful or tight deadlines. But yes, we're actively working on it.
    and we're working on a book too. but that's a whole other project. :)
