Young Women Lesson: How Can I Follow the Savior’s Example in Helping Those in Need?

How can I be more Christlike in my service to others? I think we often use “Christlike” as a sort of synonym for “nice and...

The Illusion of Separateness

And then I realized that unrestrained, unopposed, and unquestioned oneness is unrealistic and harmful. This origin myth is less about why we speak different languages and more about moral human development: maturing from simplicity to complexity. It is about the divine need for moral diversity.

Do your kids know you’ll accept them?

As part of my work, I’ve recently been reading a lot about youth who are in foster care and who identify as LGBTQIA+. My heart has been breaking as I’ve been learning about how many of these kids are in foster care because their families of origin rejected them because of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. A lot of these kids also face rejection from their foster families for the same reasons and can end up bouncing from home to home as they get rejected because of their identity. Can you imagine how hard that would be to not feel accepted by your own family?

What We Can Learn from Christlike Missionaries

It’s not enough to wait for the tide of public opinion to swing towards greater inclusion: we should be leading the charge. It’s also not enough to keep our prejudiced thoughts to ourselves but should labor to mitigate and eradicate them as we seek to become eventually perfected. The most Christlike missionaries do this.

Eat, drink and be merry, ladies! Women are exempt from most commandments.

At least, women would be if we interpreted all scriptures the way we interpret those about priesthood ordination.

A Tale of Two Supreme Court Justices (and what a fast-approaching Oaks presidency looks like for LDS girls)

This man is next in line to be the head of the church, but it often feels to me like he doesn't recognize the humanity of women at all. The idea that we could have the same longing for success in a career path as a man doesn't seem to occur to him. When I look at him, I see a man amused by my silly feminine ambitions to have done more with my life than just help a man achieve his best life.

“Choosing to Serve a Mission” by Kendra Bybee and Sareta Dobbs

Imagine my astonishment when, after nosing through my mother’s old books and journals, I discovered that my mother, my introverted, fame-avoiding mother, was the first Black woman to receive her mission call for the church.

“Submission vs Subjection” by Sarah Lindsay

I grew up believing that to love meant to submit, and that to submit meant giving up everything I thought, felt, or cared about...

“Peter—In that Instant” by Lorraine Jeffrey

In that moment, before he looked down, before Thou art the Christ, before the cock crowed,

“Cantus Firmus” by Sarah Perkins

Since we didn’t have any suitable explanation for the injury, the doctors called it a “non-accidental trauma,” indicative of abuse. So they sent the police.

“Holy Week” by Carol Lynn Pearson

The return address said “Your Friend Jesus.” I’d never heard from him this directly before, and my hand shook as I opened the envelope. You...
