Use this as a reminder to commit acts of service to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Even after the holiday passes, his spirit can carry on. Explore new ways you can give back to your community, involve your family and friends and set attainable goals for yourself.

This January, celebrate National Blood Donor Month by taking steps to go out, roll up your sleeve and give. Set the tone for the month and the rest of the year to live more altruistically.

  • I started therapy because I was dealing with suicidal ideation. It was getting so bad that it was having a very negative influence on my life. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity Cherish Families provided me to finally get all this stuff out of my head and into reality where I can deal with it. My therapist was amazing. The fact that he was trained to understand the culture made such a big difference for two reasons. One, I didn’t have to give him any backstory or context. He just got it. And two, he didn’t have any judgment when I shared about my polygamist upbringing and my current polygamist marriage. It didn’t phase him. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever felt more loved and accepted by a total stranger. He laughed at my antics and helped me uncover the woman I’d buried deep inside.

    I'm happy to say that I haven't had a suicidal thought in almost a year. Prior to this, suicidal ideation was just normal for me; I thought everybody experienced it. I can't express how grateful I am that these resources were available to me when I needed it.
