Thriving and Growing as an LDS Single

We Are (Children) of Our Heavenly Father

Leave a comment

As Daughters (and Sons) of God we are each unique and different in our circumstances and experiences. And yet our part matters—because we matter.

I’ve been extra busy with my health, three papers, more school stuff, and now a last minute move: so I thought I’d share something quick and easy, but still valuable.

I try to listen to and read a General Conference talk each day, and this is the one I was drawn to this morning.  The “daughter” references can easily be replaced by “son,” of course.  Universal principles.

Tip: If you haven’t already tried it, you can search each General Conference (or all of them at once) by topic. Very handy.  Here is the list for the most recent Conference, April 2013: Conference Topics

I'm a single mom of 2: a Southern CA native, who transplanted to Utah 4 years ago. I have one 18 year old who is off to the Ivy League, and one 14 year old who is in high school. I served an LDS Mission to Southern France and I’ve also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Idaho, Northern Arizona, and New Hampshire. I love 80’s music, classical music, choral music, playing the piano, singing, speaking what French I still remember, and talking about history and music with whomever will listen. I love that my kids are better at math than I was at their age. (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS? He’s that kind of medical examiner, I’m that kind of mom.) My kids also think I know all the lyrics to all the songs from the 80’s, mainly because I’m good at making them up and faking it when I don’t know. Sometimes they catch me. I’m currently disabled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I want to get better (of course) and be an advocate for trauma survivors and others with mental illnesses. I like people in general. I suffer from the delusion that I can make everyone my friend, but of course that isn’t possible: but I still believe that the world can be a better place.
