During this Valentine’s season, LDS Business College paired with the Women to Women Foundation to hold a mentoring luncheon for all single parents attending the College. This gave students a moment to know they are not alone, and that they are loved and supported. As they ate their lunch, Karen Talbot spoke some uplifting words.
Talbot is not a single parent herself, but she is constantly working with those who parent alone. Her message shared how to be successful in a world where presentation matters. She displayed this by having them participate in a fun dessert activity.
The goal was to present a chocolate chip cookie. When left alone the cookie is okay, but when given extra toppings (for presentation) the cookie becomes a delicious snack that cannot be resisted. Afterwards, the tables got to enjoy their desserts. The students that attended were given a gift bag with all sorts of goodies like bracelets and a cupcake at the end of their meeting.
Women to Women is an organization that wants to help single parents and their families become better through their mentoring programs and scholarships.
