"There Is Always a Struggle" : An Interview with Chieko N. Okazaki
Dialogue : A Journal of Mormon Thought
Gregory A. Prince, a member of Dialogue's board of editors, conducted this interview with Chieko N. Okazaki on November 15, 2005, in her home in Salt Lake City.
Prince interviews Chieko N. Okazaki, an elementary school teacher and principal, who was the first non-Caucasian to serve on any LDS general board (Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association, 1962- 71) and is the first woman to serve on the general level of all three LDS women's auxiliaries. Among other things, she looks her work in the Church the same way. She has struggled because Christ struggled. When He died, He was struggling the most. Yet He is going to come in His perfection when He comes back the second time.
