The Mormon Question

I saw a great video over on cjane's blog about an LDS Harvard student who is questioned intensively about her religion. The student is Rachel Esplin, a twenty-year-old East Asian Studies major from Blackfoot, Idaho, who is also the president of the Latter-day Saint Student Association at Harvard. Ms. Esplin handles all the questions with aplomb and seems so articulate for someone so young. In short, I think she represents well the LDS faith and answers the interviewer's questions adeptly.

I wish I had half of her abilities when I was near her age and knocking doors in the Delmarva Penisula. And a degree from Harvard wouldn't have hurt me either.

that is great! though i think she forgot to mention that people can go to the temple even if they aren't going on missions or getting married...

She did a great job in that setting.

Lori--I thought she did so well too.

Uncle Ward--I think she did well in that setting too. I know if I was at school and interested in a religion like ours that her answers would give me a great inside scoop on the religion.
