On our "Mormon Times" TV show this Sunday, Jan. 29, we’ll take a look at a film that has everyone talking. It’s called “The 5,000 Days Project: Two Brothers” — the story of two ordinary LDS siblings who struggle to love each other.
Sometimes you wonder if your own children come from the same gene pool, with personalities, looks and mannerisms that are alike, yet so different from each other. Yes, they grow up in the same household under the same governing principles and rules, but it’s fun to see how they come into their own and become their own people. I won’t say parenting has been easy — in fact, there have been many times I wish I had an owner's manual. But I’m amazed at how much I’ve learned, even as our four kids continue to teach me lessons. And the struggles really help make us who we are, as we each learn the lessons we were meant to experience.
