In Mothers Who Know we often use a meaningful phrase that has become a burning testimony for me. “There will always be a message and a miracle, right in the middle of a mess.” The passing or graduation of my awesome mother,  Verla Woolstenhulme, on April 6th is no exception. In fact, I am realizing […]

10 Tips for Latter-day Saint Parents of LGBTQ Children

Mother and LGBTQ son

It’s been about ten years since the first signs my son was gay. The reality is that I dismissed, rejected, and buried those signs for seven of the ten years.

How to Support a Child Caught in Pornography

You Matter to Him

My dear friend, Kellie, was kind enough to share this story with me. She is an incredible example of “noticing,” even during a pandemic. She helped me consider that there might be things I can notice better over here.  Isn’t it amazing to just have the thought that the God of the universe cares for […]

Don't Miss God's Valentine

I don’t know about you, but there have been Valentine’s Days where I have wondered if I were really loved or cared for because I had no one who loved me romantically.  Other Valentine’s Days I felt unloved because my valentine didn’t meet my expectation for the holiday.

Especially when that turn is toward healing, hope and acceptance of the Savior. Elder Christopherson said: “Repentance is a divine gift, and there should […]

There are 3 businesses…

A Faithful Mother’s Heart

First of all, I provided the means by which my son became addicted.  We gave him an iPhone but didn’t put any restrictions on it.  This was my worst mistake.  Kids want all the newest electronics.  And, I was naïve.  We had passwords on the T.V. and restrictions on the computer.  So, why didn’t I […]
