Overview

Do you sometimes feel you don't quite fit into the traditional Latter-day Saint mold because you are-Single? Divorced? Married to a less active or nonmember husband? The mother of a blended family? Working to support or help support your family? Different from others because of your financial status? At one end or the other of the adult age spectrum? Not really happy, even though you seem to "have it all"? Then Thriving on Our Differences will help you understand that you're not alone; that you're one of a growing number of women who feel, at one time or another, that they don't seem to fit in. It will help you appreciate your own individuality and that of others. And it will help you learn how to help others and yourself; feel more a part of the nurturing sisterhood of the Saints. Having experienced several of these "nontraditional" situations, author Karen Lynn Davidson explores the sensitive subject of feeling different from others whose lives seem to fit better into the traditional Latter-day Saint mold: "This book is not a problem-solving manual, nor is it just a 'let's-all-be-more-cheerful' book," she writes. "Its purpose is to remind us that sisterhood does not mean sameness, that commitment does not mean uniformity, and that women of vastly different outlooks and backgrounds can still share a joyful and enriching association as Latter-day Saints."
