Modern Mormon Men (MMM) was launched in April 2011 after two friends read an article written by someone obsessed with Mormon mommy blogs. The idea was to gather a group of interesting Mormons and have them write about topics they find inspiring, challenging, funny, creative, and compelling. An eclectic group of modern Mormon men and women was assembled to regularly contribute content.
