General Conference from a Mental Health Perspective

General Conference can be a wonderful thing. But it can also be triggering and isolating when you’re going through a faith transition.

Recently I happened upon this wonderful blog by Natasha Helfer Parker, The Mormon Therapist, who has really healthy perspectives on the gospel that resonate loud and clear. She blogged all about the Saturday morning session of conference, the things that she thought rang true, things that required additional discussion, and things that were unhealthy and not in alignment with the gospel. My husband and I literally had an impromptu FHE just because she had so many phenomenal insights.

Update: Saturday Afternoon Session is now available as well.

Natasha’s blog has been a phenomenal resource for me — I’d completely recommend it.

She Prays

On April 6, 2013, Jean A. Stevens of the Primary Presidency made history as the first women to pray during General Conference.

I couldn’t bring myself to close my eyes. I was riveted. Seeing a woman pray in #ldsconf brought a peaceful feeling of acknowledgment that God knows his daughters & hears our prayers.
