Re: The Great Progeny Contest

I work in banking and keep a photo of my family (parents/siblings) on my desk. The topic of kids will come up and I'm often asked if I have any. It's amazing how many people reply with "you have plenty of time" when I say I don't currently. Occasionally I even state "I don't know if I ever will" an...

Re: The Great Progeny Contest

Is there another parallel with the Family History Program of the church? - how many names can I send to the temple? - how many names can I index? - what historical people am I related to? - who in church history am I related to? I must say, I do find this program to be very interesting. Because, at...

The Great Progeny Contest

Maybe it's just me, and maybe it's not even an LDS thing, though I suspect it is. My husband and I have two grown children (ages 39 and 37). Both are divorced and living with significant others. Neither of them has any children. I actually didn't want a large family myself, although I would have bee...

Re: Standing when a woman enters a room

If a man were to stand up when I entered the room, it would really make me feel uncomfortable. This is definitely old-school. I don't think it has anything to do with President Nelson being LDS; it's more about his age.

Re: Sexual and Gender Ambiguity in LDS Theology

Curt, you need to forward this to the First Presidency. Then all of us on StayLDS need to fast and pray that they see things as clearly as you have explained them. What a logical and charitable way to look at the issue! :thumbup:

Re: Unconditional Love

I've never heard it taught that God's love is conditional. I think it's precisely the opposite. That doesn't mean that God is equally satisfied with how we're all doing, but I truly believe He loves everyone equally.

April, 2020 Conference

Anybody care to speculate on what President Nelson might have been getting at when he said, in his closing remarks of the Sunday afternoon session? "General Conference next year will be different from any previous Conference." He said it will be a "unique Conference" that will "commemorate the very ...

Re: TR Questions Change-up

publicly promoting opposition to the Church. To me, this really says it all. My previous bishop knew about my affiliation with Mormons Building Bridges and was fine with it. He didn't see it as a group that was promoting opposition to the church and I certainly don't. Since I've discussed it with h...

Re: New Youth Program

If this approach had been in place 5 years ago when my youngest daughter (in high school) started YW, she might be attending now. She would have thrived in this model. As it was, she was bored stiff and lost all desire to attend. Right now, as of about two months ago, she is inactive. She has a sol...

I like your 15 minute speaker and the rest for music MM. I've long thought sacrament meeting should be more like Music and the Spoken Word.
Absolutely!
