“You said we’d never make my parents’ mistakes…”

Image        Image

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…

Lyrics Here: 

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.

My blog has many part-time jobs…

ImagePart-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 🙂

Lawyer Stereotypes….

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!

Sometimes the dads of a married couple don’t get along…

But sometimes, they DO!

They are really good friends even if you can’t necessarily tell it by my dad’s face.

Some writers pride themselves on their honesty…

but I pride myself on my honesty AND on my class.  I also pride myself on my humility.  Oh wait…..

Just in case you forgot who was female and who was male,

But I’m all about gender neutrality, so I wore BOTH!

Sounds like a new Nike ad slogan or something, huh?  Big bucks are coming my way! Truth in jest.  If you’re real nice to me, maybe I’ll share. Dead Serious.

I only really know one or 2 other people in this picture, but I put it up on Facebook to make myself look more popular.

Image True story.  Plus I STILL don’t really understand all that much about football, even after all these years.  Sorry, Dad.

PS.  Can you see my cute pink glove?  99 cents from Walgreens, if I remember correctly.  This girl loves a good deal.

Every once in a while, the experience is BETTER than the myth.

This is Kenneth Christofferson (along with his lovely wife Leslie).  He was my LDS bishop and continues to be a great friend and father figure to me and to countless others.  This man’s name is no coincidence-he is a Christlike person who defies all stereotypes of the sketchy car-salesman.  Bishop Christofferson has helped me out of many a bind, both spiritual and physical (you better believe he’s helped me more than once with my car!).  He works at Ken Garff Chevrolet in American Fork, Utah (Ken works for Ken!).  If you are in the market for a new car, check them out!  http://www.kengarffchevrolet.com/
And yes, I got his full permission for this post.  And no, he’s not paying me. 🙂
Readers!
 Who do YOU know that shatters negative stereotypes?
And who do you know who confirms stereotypes that writers are a little goofy?
holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts…

Sure looks like an engagement photo, right?  Someday I’ll be holding a man instead of my guitar.  And hopefully not by the neck.

A very common sight indeed

My dad reading the Mormon almanac.  ImageYes, you read that right.  Mormons are such a weird cult that they have their own almanac.  Haha, not really.  It just is a book published every year that gives information about new church leaders, new temples, and statistics/demographics and stuff like that.  Just the sort of stuff that gets David’s heart racing and his toes tapping 🙂
