    Dear Alison-

    I’m writing to you regarding your article “Dear 8 year old self: A child of divorce”. Wow! Your article is my story too. I was a 9yo girl and my sister was 3. Reading your article, I identfied with everything you went through & felt. Today was an unproductive day for me because I kept rereading your piece and reflecting. Thank you for writing it. I wish that I knew at 9 that everything would be ok too. I have 2 beautiful children and overall life is really good.
    When you write something so real & raw you never know who you may touch. You touched me in a big way. Thank you for being so honest, real and open in your writings. Keep writing. Teä Johnson

      Tea,
      I can’t tell you how much this meant to me. Thank you so much for seeking me out to write that.

      Divorce is such a tricky thing. Just because it’s as common as it is even now, gives no relief to the children who go through the turmoil of having their family split up. Not to say all parents should stay together, but we need to be as aware as possible as to how it affects the children and do everything we can to make that transition as smooth as possible. Unfortunately most parents don’t realize until it is too late just how much it affects the children and maps out how they will function the rest of their lives.

      Comments like yours are what drive me to keep writing. Thank you so much and I hope to keep in touch.
      Be well:)
      Alison

    Alison,

    I loved reading your post about your 8 year-old’s questions about God and reading the Bible with him. My favorite thing about the way Jesus Christ teaches in the scriptures, is that He taught many times by asking questions. I believe as we search the scriptures, praying for insight, we are able to get our own personal answers to things that seem “invisible.”

    My understanding grew as I began asking those same questions as a grown woman. As I’ve put time and effort into reading many books, articles, Jesus the Christ, the Bible – especially the New Testament, Old Testament and Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ, I have received answers to a lot of the things I really wondered about, like, Where did we come from? Why are we here? What happens after we die? Will I see my mother again?

    I’m so grateful for the wonderful resources (in many forms) that God has given us to be able to learn for ourselves, and as parents, help our children find answers for themselves as well.

    Thanks for your great article and example.

    Amy
