Rio Grange: Honoring a Parent through Complexit‪y‬ All In

    • Christianity

How do we honor parents who make choices we don’t understand? On this week's All In episode, Rio Grange discusses her relationship with her father, who struggled with mental health and other difficult issues in his life. Rio wrote, “Some things are not meant to make sense, or seem fair, or reach resolution in this life—and that can be hard to sit with. But these experiences bring learning and growth, while ‘earthside’ that otherwise would not have been possible. The complexities in between and all throughout will be taken care of ‘heavenside.’” Rio shares what our Heavenly Father's plan is teaching her about navigating complexities in family relationships.

“It’s his story. It’s between him and the Savior and I kept trying to put my dad between myself and my Savior as I tried to heal. …But I had to learn that the healing I needed was between myself and my Savior.”
