She Shall Be an Ensign: Ardis Parshall

By now the bloggernacle is clued in on this project to write the history of Mormonism through the eyes of women who lived it. The standard histories of Mormon things have largely focused on male leaders like Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. We’ve heard far less from the rank and file and even there the women who shared the load have been neglected. This project promises great things. I believe in it, in the richness it promises for Mormon history and the way Mormons and others think about its progress since 1830. If you feel you have a stake in this gentle revolution, and I think we all do, I encourage you to contribute to the project. To learn more, go to

    I’m looking forward to seeing how you treat Emma, who obviously played a large role in the restoration. Will you malign her as has typically been done for not following Brigham? Its quite uncomfortable to think that she knew Joseph better than anybody else, and didn’t think BY was the true successor. Looking forward to your honest appraisal!
