The Video Where I Am Very Vulnerable - My LTYM Video!


It don't think it comes as a surprise to those who know me well, that I try very hard NOT to be vulnerable. I keep my struggles and stresses and worries to myself. Until now...

For the first time, during the Listen To Your Mother Show in May, I took the stage with 16 other women, and poured my heart out.

It doesn't get more vulnerable than this for me right now. I have a story to tell. A story that I finally had the courage to share.

I hope you will watch. ( It took me 36 years to open up like this.)
I wonder if you can relate?
I am sorry I cry. (But I couldn't have told my story without tears.)
I hope you will share this with others, because I found out after the show that night that I am not the only one. As women came up to talk to me, they assured me, they too were struggling with this very same issue.

Producing/Directing the Listen To Your Mother Northern Utah Show has been one of the greatest and most amazing experiences I have ever had. As one of our cast members put it during our last rehearsal, "this has become a spiritual experience for all of us." And it has.

"Motherhood is my Style"


 Is anyone else in mourning?

  1. I'm currently contemplating the same. I had a miscarriage in November, and it rocked my world. I never thought I'd be someone who could say that I'm done. Now I'm so unsure.

    The thought of getting pregnant and miscarrying again is so terrifying, that I just don't know if I can do it again. Still, the thought that I've already done all those "lasts" without having had the chance to know it...I just don't know if I can bear that.

  2. Thanks, Heather, for sharing so deeply. You brought up some thoughts that I had not considered and you did that from the heart. Maybe you are meant to be the one to write that book. I pray that you find peace in your heart about the next stage of motherhood for you.

  3. I went through the very same feelings and sadness that you're talking about, many years ago. I am sixty one years old and still wish I had had more children. I've decided that there just are moms like us, young and old, who never feel 'done' having children. We have five children who were and are the center of my world, along with the fourteen, (with one more on the way,) grandchildren. I believe that grandchildren are a tender mercy from our loving Heavenly Father to us so that we can continue to love, and teach, and be an important part of a little child's life, and they can be an important part of ours.

  4. My sister is still going through this and her youngest is 13 and she's about to be a grandma. :) She's the best big sister because my parents are no longer able to help care for kids if I want to go out of town with my husband. Ha!

    This has been a hard stage for me as well. I was sure I would have 5 or 6 kids but struggles with infertility and sanity as a young mom have changed that. I had a miscarriage last Easter and I was sure another pregnancy would follow and it hasn't. Then a few months ago as we were sitting at Family Home Evening the Spirit whispered to me that our family was complete. It is something I have fought hard against for several months but as my children struggle with school and sensory issues and I struggle with knowing how to help them, the more I know that it is true. I will never have another baby. I think I fought so hard against it because I didn't know. I didn't know that was my last pregnancy; my last labor and delivery; my last late night nursing; my last cheer for first steps. I think if I had known beforehand that those were the last, it would have been a much easier transition. Mourning is a perfect word for it. Thanks for sharing your heartfelt thoughts.

  5. I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant with our fifth, and last, baby. I can't even tell you how much your words resonate with me. We decided this one would be our last since I don't know if our finances, time, or sanity can stretch much farther...but, oh, how I hurt. Like you, I just don't know how to be done. The crazy thing is I'm only 28 (we had our first when I was 20), so I still have more than a few good child-bearing years left in me. On the other hand...enough is enough and one has to stop sometime. I wish I could find that spiritual knowledge that we're done, but it just hasn't happened yet and I fear it never will. It's not like I feel any spiritual promptings to have more either...I'm just really, really mourning the loss of my time of childbearing. Thank you so much for articulating so well exactly what I was already feeling.

  6. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.

  8. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
