Nature vs. nurture is a theme as old (and relevant!) as any other in literature/ music/ film, etc. So when it comes to our own lives and relationships, how much will we incorporate what we’ve seen from example (for good and for bad), and how much will we be pioneers and break new ground?
We said we’d never make our parents’ mistakes…
Just to clarify, PLEASE KNOW that I am NOT writing this post about my own parents. I’m writing it because I know that not everyone is so lucky.
And to quote again from Ms. Swift, “I have an excellent father.” Read about him here.
Part-time journal, part-time missionary, part-time teacher, part-time money-maker (although I’m looking into getting a few more hours there, know what I mean?), part-time musician, part-time keeper (in touch with family and friends), part-time therapy, et cetera….. but full-time AWESOME!
It’s a Jill of all Trades. Just like me 🙂
Lawyers get a bad name. Sleezy lawyer jokes; we’ve all heard them! Anyways, my father defies all of those. He was a lawyer, but is also a scriptural/doctrine heavyweight. And he’s stayed true to God all these years.
Think Atticus Finch, ya’ll. Love ya Dad!
PS. A few years ago, there was an article written in the BYU Alumni magazine about this kind of idea of lawyers not being sleeze-bags. It was called “In Search of Atticus Finch” based on an idea by Mike Papantonio. I can download it as a PDF, but don’t know how to attach it to this blog. If you are interested, google it!
but I pride myself on my honesty AND on my class. I also pride myself on my humility. Oh wait…..
