The Highest & Holiest Calling: Q.MORE Podcast
I was thrilled to speak with Rosemary Card about motherhood, marriage, and cultural expectations of women within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Going off of my TEDxOgden Talk “The Costs of Idealizing Motherhood,” we discussed some of the nuances of what it looks like to be a woman in the Church. I shared that I’ve made it my life’s quest to discover whether it’s possible to be an active, believing woman who has both a family and a career, while Rosemary expressed that as a single woman with no children, she has had to navigate her experience as it does not currently match up to what she thought it would be. She and I both agreed that our church culture can be improved by helping young people learn how to develop communication skills and emotional management.
