Thriving and Growing as an LDS Single

September is “Take a Man on a Date” Month


So, all you single ladies: who is brave enough to do this? Remember, “It’s Just a Date.” Also, the worst a guy can say is no: then bounce back and try someone else.

I’ve been avoiding dating due to fatigue and health reasons, but I may take out a guy friend just for the spirit of it. Thanks to Matt Campbell of LDS MidSingles as well as the numerous LDS single’s Facebook groups that he moderates for bringing this to my attention. If it’s not really a “thing” yet, let’s make it one! Guys have to do this all the time.


We did it! It was October instead of September, but we did it, and it was so much fun that we’re doing it again in November. See the follow-up post here.

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 (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS?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.
