Changes Come ALL The Time!

Changes Come ALL The Time!

My husband and I just returned from a three-week dream retirement vacation. It was previously canceled due to Covid. This vacation was originally planned for 2020. We planned to visit Australia and New Zealand for two weeks with a small group of friends and family. We ended up going in 2023 to Australia, New Zealand & Fiji for three weeks. With a fun group of new friends!

Things Change And People Change

Our trip was wonderful, even though things didn’t exactly go how we had originally planned. There were parts that we thought would be one way and they turned out another way. Of course, we weren’t the same people who booked the initial trip 2 years ago either. Our lives and our health had changed and the group of people we planned the trip with weren’t the same.

I coach women who are in LDS mixed faith families and/or mixed faith marriages. BIG changes have unexpectedly come into their lives also. These moms and wives still want to be faithful to the Latter-day Saint faith. Even though their loved ones have chosen other paths, sometimes other faiths and sometimes no faith.

When Things Change, We Have To Change Too

It’s a little like my vacation – when things change, we have to change with them. Originally I was sealed to a returned missionary in the temple. We started a family with blessings, baptisms, seminary, missions and all the other LDS milestones. I never thought that some day I would be married to someone who didn’t carry on those same beliefs. I never imagined that some of my faithful children that were married in the temple would choose different paths.

One of the greatest spiritual gifts I have been given is to know how to continue loving. When things don’t turn out the way I expected. In a previous blog post I listed about 60+ things that can change in a mixed-faith marriage.

There is so much to love about our families, even when they are not how we planned they would be.

  • If you want to feel more love for your mixed-faith family member.
  • If you want to feel more empathy and compassion. Even when your loved ones don’t see faith as you do.
  • If you want to learn to see yourself with new eyes and learn why it’s so hard to make changes.
  • If you want to work on one big project this year, and nail it.
2023 is your year!

2023 could be the year to work with me as your coach, guide and teacher. It’s never too soon or too late to learn to be the best you, and love better. 

  • Where do YOU want to be one year from today? 
  • What things would you like to change or improve?

I can help you make those dreams and wishes happen!

Let’s talk!
