  8. Catherine Edward’s Ensign article “Having Faith in God’s Timeline”:

    “Sometimes people suggest possible explanations as to why I don’t have a husband and children yet. I know that most often these ideas are kindly offered, and yet underlying them seems to be a sense that I have erred in my eligibility for the blessings of marriage and children. I have been told that perhaps I am too picky, too aggressive, too smart, too career oriented, too independent, too liberal, and—my favorite—too happy. I must say that on occasion I take some of these critiques as compliments, and yet at the same time I recognize that there are married women who are smarter, more aggressive, pickier, and more independent than I am.”

    Let me add my thanks, Deborah. I’m glad that you liked the Heavenly Mother hymn post. I enjoyed finding out about it, myself. (Now I just need to get our choir director to put that hymn on the slate.) 🙂
