Today is world suicide prevention day. One in every 100 deaths worldwide is the result of suicide, and each one leaves a devastating impact on those around them. With the stresses of the past year, mental health is important now more than ever! As we increase awareness about suicide and become more informed, we are better equipped to help prevent it. Ganel-Lyn talks about what she has learned over the last 7 years since loosing Meg to suicide.
Sept. 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day. This day hits close to home for our guest, Ganel-Lyn Condie, due to a tragic loss she experienced seven years ago because of suicide. Condie shared five things she has learned over the last seven years while studying awareness and prevention. Mental health is for all of us. There are no groups that are free of risk. Therapy should be celebrated. It is education for our minds, hearts and relationships. Ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask a loved one if they are struggling with thoughts of self-harm. We will never be better without you. Our lives are not better without you in it. Stay in your body. Our bodies are a gift so make choices each day that up the light in a sometimes dark world.
In this episode, we spoke with Ganel-Lyn Condie, a popular motivational speaker, author and podcast host. She’s written several books and currently hosts two podcasts: “Real Talk – Come Follow Me” and “The Middle”. We spoke with her about a couple of topics that she’s spoken and written about recently — first is her concept of “stewardship vs. ownership,” which is a really great insight into facing challenges without letting them become an identity. Secondly, we discussed the concept of “letting God prevail,” which was the focus of President Nelson’s October 2020 General Conference address. We loved talking with Ganel-Lyn and found her to be extraordinarily authentic and approachable. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.
When was the last time you bit into a sweet, warm, and gooey chocolate chip cookie? I can imagine that your first thought when you took a bite was probably, “Wow, I’m in heaven! This is delicious,” and not, “Wow, I’m so glad someone failed.” Ruth Wakefield invented chocolate chip cookies on accident when experimenting with cookie recipes. The result of chocolate in cookies was nothing like what she was trying to accomplish, and yet that failure was the birth of what is arguably the best cookie in the world. So what can we learn from Ruth’s example? How can we learn how to embrace our mistakes as learning moments on our path to success? With us today is motivational speaker Ganel-Lyn Condie to teach us how to embrace making mistakes.
Ganel Lyn sat down with us to give some tips on making mistakes more common in our daily lives. Her first advice is to own your mistake and admit it. It is always okay to take a deep breath. Watch for more tips on celebrating your mistakes.
Grief is complex. There are so many struggles and challenges that each of us face each day, and sometimes they can build up to be unbearable, sending us into a spiral of grief and doubt, like a whirlpool in a storm.

We are excited to have motivational speaker and author Ganel-Lyn Condie joining us again to tell us how to navigate grief.

Join us for another Onward live virtual fireside. This weeks topic is “Commemorating Carthage” with special guests Ganel-Lyn Condie & Dr. David Morgan.
There is an old African proverb that goes: Once after a storm, the beach was littered with starfish. One man walked down the beach and picked up on starfish at a time and chucked them back into the ocean. Another man walked by and scoffed, “you will never be able to save all the starfish out here.” To which the wise man responded, “yes I know, but to this one I have made all the difference” as he throws one more into the ocean. How does this proverb relate to us, in a world full of more problems that are bigger and more complex than we can solve on our own? What are the things we can do to make the world a little bit better for those around us?

Teachers have been the unsung heroes of the pandemic as they’ve juggled constant changes to their classroom environment.
