We are catching up after speaking at the conference in Manhattan.
All went well! We spoke about (3) things: Identity, Choice and the Pursuit of Virtues. We spoke side by side up on the stand and I just kept thinking what a gift it is to speak with Danny. He LOOOVES to speak and teach so much. And he gives me the best moral support in the world before we speak.
It was really something to be speaking at that particular church by Lincoln Center. That was where I went 14 years ago, when I first moved to New York and decided to visit the Mormon church after 5 years of not attending. I had zero spiritual strength then, I had very little knowledge about living a spiritual life, and my identity was based on things that I later came to realize didn't matter one bit. I only went to church then to meet people. About 9 years later, I returned to that same chapel to meet people again. This time I was newly divorced and had years of infertility behind me. And I was a completely different woman. I was happily living the most spiritual life I knew how. I kinda love going to that building, just because it's such a reminder of my own transformation.
And, we loved the people who attended the event. I got all teary over them. New Yorkers can do that to me. :)
