A Bald Asian American Latter-Day Saint Woman Scholar's venture through life, death, cancer & motherhood (not necessarily in that order).

In this collection of personal essays, letters, and even drawings, Melissa Inouye considers how Latter-day Saints in an increasingly globalized Church might cultivate unity without leaving their distinctive gifts behind. As a bald Asian American Latter-day Saint feminist religious studies China scholar,” she feels the urgency of the Lord’s command that the Church "be one” (Doctrine & Covenants 38:27).
With her unique mix of humor and candor, empathy and idealism, Inouye draws upon her academic training in Chinese history and religious studies, her rich cultural heritage, her experiences raising a family in an international setting, her tangle with cancer, and her resilient faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ to unfurl vibrant reflections on the enduring question of what it means to be a Latter-day Saint today.
