“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Did you know that our LDSFS office also supports those living in Alaska. They are officially part of our FSA Chapter (although we are hoping that soon their FSA program will grow and that they will have their own Alaskan version).

If you would like to set up an appointment with Tawnia please contact her directly at 425-228-0074 or via email at:singletonta@ldsfamilyservices.org.

You may also contact Elder Tolman (LDSFS Church Service Missionary in Alaska) for additional information at: tolmanwa@ldsfamilyservices.org.
