If you try to picture a climate activist over the past very long year, you will likely summon the image of a young girl. It could be the bespectacled daughter of one embattled Somali-American representative, the tall Latina from Seattle drenched and yelling at the first Youth Climate March, or a less nationally-known girl you happened to catch at the head of your local climate strike.

When I was fifteen I struck up a strange friendship with a man double my age.

If your spouse thinks 8 is too young to get baptized, are you all right with waiting until they are older. Is it wrong to make those types of sacrifices. I chose to get married and move across the state to live with my husband and left my job, family and friends and let me tell you, it's been tremendously difficult to meet new friends in the new town. This blog has been so helpful. The Mormon girl has the light of Christ shining through her, and you were drawn in.
