With the geographic realignment of young single adult wards last year — and the creation of YSA stakes — the LDS Church is trying to help these young people stay active in the gospel and stay focused. But they still have to deal with the challenges of life — and one is finding that eternal companion.
The past six years my husband and I were privileged to work with hundreds of young single adults in our stake and region of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and with our missionaries in Georgia. The years between the ages of 18 and 30 are a complex phase of life. My husband, Steve, calls it the “decade of decisions,” because these young people are virtually having to make so many of life’s big choices — where to go to school, whether to serve a mission, what do to do for a career, where to work, whom to date and marry, and how to pay for it all. Talk about pressure!
