Did you miss the first run of Habits of Being? Well, you’re in luck! Due to overwhelming demand, Exponent II has decided to do a second run of Habits of Being, which is available in our shop here.

“The things our ancestors leave us are much more than aesthetic objects. They are physical reminders of our ancestors’ legacies to us—identities that descend as deep as our DNA, cultural surroundings as brittle and as beautiful as fine china, and thoughts as complex as Continental philosophy.”
-Elizabeth Pinborough, Habits of Being editor

A variety of Mormon women write about objects they have inherited from their ancestresses in this collection of essays and poetry. Humorous and heart-breaking, this collection includes works by Linda Hoffman Kimball, Jana Riess, Margaret Toscano, and Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.
