I've noticed that a lot of "Slicers" are writing creeds which were inspired by the book, Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson. Near the end of the book, Jacqueline Woodson includes her creed which she titled, "What I Believe". I can't remember which blog I first saw this on, but that person included links to another blog site where she read someone else's creed and was inspired to write one of her own. I would leave links to those sites if I could remember them. Instead, I'll just say, Thank You everyone for inspiring me to write my own creed.
