I got this email from, Kersten Campbell Author of "Confessions of a Completely (In)Sane Mother, If you can help please send your replies to her email address at the bottom. If you have a friend or family member who would be willing to participate pleasesend it to them also.
I wondered if you could help me because the Ensign just assigned me to write an article on reaching out to those who might feel alone or different in their wards/and conversely what to do if you feel alone or different in your ward because maybe you feel like you are outside the "norm" whatever that maybe.
They want me to get stories from around the world and U.S. of what people are doing to help this situation. Would you mind forwarding the following questionnaire to your friends and family who might want to participate in helping out with this article? And you guys can participate too if you wanted to! Thanks so much!!
Questionnaire Ensign "Reaching Out Article"
1. Name, age, ward, stake:
2. Email address:
3. Have you or someone you know ever felt alone or like an outsider in your ward, as if you didn't fit the "norm" whatever that may be? If so, why? And how have you used gospel principles and Christ's example to deal with it and to feel better?
4. How have other members reached out to you?
5. Have you or someone you know ever reached out to others in your ward or stake who may have felt alone or different? How has Christ example or gospel principles taught you how to reach out to others in this situation? And what was the experience like?
