Suicide is the leading cause of death in Utah for ages 10-24 and the second leading cause in the US in that same age group.

The stigma that surrounds mental health can be stifling.

I’ve been impacted by this myself. It is generational.

Your story is worth telling. Your life is worth living.

Anne Brown, Andy Proctor, CAPP, Gregory Cook, and others are doing some amazing things at the Cook Center for Human Connection. Along with Wonder Media, they’ve been working a a meaningful project that will educate, inform, and SAVE LIVES.

It’s called “My Life is Worth Living” and it’s the first animated series ever that models the human connection that is critical for suicide prevention.

USA TODAY published a pre-launch story on the series this morning. The series officially launches on August 18 and we will be launching weekly episodes until the end of the year.

If you are struggling or know someone who is struggling, this series can help.

The restoration was MESSY (and that’s OK)

Years ago, I heard a Bishop say: “Brothers and sisters, the restoration was messy.” I didn’t think much about his wording at the time. But over the few years following (including my mission), I encountered a lot of people wanting to “educate” me about early Church leaders. Joseph Smith was the most common target, of course. They cited all sorts of stories about him that seemingly “proved” he was a lying, womanizing con man. I mostly brushed off these claims during my mission. Those critics were not historians. I knew their agenda. I figured they were mostly lies, or at least huge distortions of the history. So, when I got home from my mission, I bought an 800-page history of Joseph Smith. It was written by an active stake patriarch and Church historian who worked on the Joseph Smith Papers project, so I figured his book would blow away all those false accusations with the fiery testimony of truth. But I was surprised to find that instead of tearing down all the stories the critics had told me, history largely confirmed them. And you know what? That’s OK!
