We were all silly teenagers. We were all at least relatively rebellious. And I would imagine most of us had some issues with our parents/the Church/authority in some way or another during that time in our lives. The odds of you (9M blog reader) being a now-active member of the LDS Church is pretty good. That means you’re probably not still rebellious/apathetic/too-cool (even if you think you are).
What I want to know is what helped you get through it all to become the psychologically healthy, socially normal, spiritual powerhouse that you are today? In other words, if you didn’t go to church, didn’t talk with your parents, didn’t care to do all that well in school, didn’t wake up before noon, and loved video games, what would/did motivate you to grow up, to communicate with your (very caring and faithful) parents, to perhaps go to church, to care?
