Re: I think I'm getting tired of being religious, I'm failin

Thanks for your responses and your obvious concern. Bishop gave us the recommend to go to counseling with Family Services and we went for several months. A good experience for my wife and I. Counselor helped us break through some barriers hurting our marriage. So that's all improved. You're right, I...

I think I'm getting tired of being religious, I'm failing.

I'm getting tired, mostly of church, but I find myself tired of theology. The nostalgia seems to be wearing off and I am losing my motivation to be an active participant in church. I am a sixth generation LDS person, served a mission like I should have, accepted most callings, am currently the Sunda...

Re: Resources of Truth

Here's my half cent. Some guilt is deserved, but maybe you shouldn't run around feeling so guilty. Who's perfect? We're all guilty and no one is really more guilty than another. Give it up! You're wasting time sitting there feeling guilty and not moving forward. Having problems approaching God in pr...

Re: A State 5 Experience?

I sometimes feel like I know more than the teachers, so I get disconnected. I think it's wrong for me to think that because I should be listening and feeling for the Spirit of Truth in the subject that I think I know more about. My personal pride makes me disconnect. I pondered and prayed that the L...

I felt the Spirit today. Did anyone else?

I taught Elder's Quorum today and enjoyed the happy feelings that the Spirit can bring. Others thanked me for the lesson.
Did anyone else have a good day today? Please share.

Re: Mormon Culture

I would assume back when Sacrament meeting was the last meeting for Sunday that such get togethers weren't so bad. No one skipped the rest of church to break their fast early in the day to entertain distant family members. With my last two kids I skipped church. I feel like it's the wrong thing to d...

Re: Testimony is Changing

How are you with prayer? A loving God won't leave you all to yourself if you aren't demanding to be left to yourself. This struggle WILL pass with God's help and you praying for it, and you WILL come out of it with a clearer and purer understanding of necessary things. Be very patient, this is all i...

Re: The God Confusion: Is God Eternally Progressing?

Maybe for all of the journals Pres. Woodruff wrote, he might not have been all that great at clearly explaining a deep, and probably should have been a very private and personal revelation. Kind of make you wonder how to exercise faith in a god that may not be at his full potential yet? I think Elde...

Re: Is it important to be "out"-spin off

I would like to apologize to the new convert that I embarrassed over ten years ago during GD in a college ward, talking about Fore-ordination. I used Alma 13, and after looking back on the experience all those years ago, not only got it wrong but probably severely offended the guy. I said something ...
