We made a goal to tell more stories of BYU Alumni moms. Here are just a few of our favorites.
A common refrain we’ve heard in letters from readers: BYU alumna moms don’t see themselves in the magazine. Over the last year, we’ve endeavored to tell more of their stories—30 in the last year alone. We’ve also created a new section, “Letters from Home,” to incorporate their voices in the magazine. Below, see some of our favorite pieces from the last 12 months that are about or are written by alumnae moms.
