When I stumbled upon this group of FLDS having a ball playing soccer in Colorado City, Arizona, I asked permission to take this video and the mother said yes. It does my heart good to share the evidence I find of FLDS families like this laughing, having fun, experiencing life joy! As a newcomer to the area who was keenly aware of all the negative media, I have been happily surprised by how much happiness I see. Studies show how play and laughter are essential to healthy development, so I commend the mothers here who not only are allowing their children to play, but who are playing right along with them! THOSE are incredible moms.
In fact, all the Cricker moms I have met have been full of love for their children.
The women are the best thing about this place!
