Changing Surroundings

This probably applies more to the women here, but are any of you changing the things that have decorated your homes? This is probably a trivial thing compared to some of the real difficulties I'm discovering as I go through these changes in my life. But I'm finding the need to change things in my ho...

Re: GA Quotes Encouraging Spouses to Not Leave Disbelievers

I recall a talk or Ensign article by Boyd K. Packer from many years ago, maybe the late 70's or early 80's. He was addressing members who had an inactive spouse, not necessarily a spouse who had been active and then lost faith. But his message was to never give up, and to show an increase of love an...

Re: What Staying LDS Might Look Like for Me

Katie,
Thank you so much for that post. I had my crisis of faith about 6 months ago and I'm just beginning to put one foot in front of the other. I've been in such a state of confusion and turmoil, but I am beginning to sort out what I believe and what I don't. Your post has helped me so much. :)

Re: What do I believe now?

Thanks to all of you for your kind welcome and sharing your experiences. It definitely takes courage to face this crisis and there is nothing like the help we can get from others who have also been through it. I look forward to being farther down the road in this process. Right now my mind is contin...

What do I believe now?

I'm so grateful to have found this site. My crisis of faith happened about five months ago. I'm mostly through the anger that I initially had, but now I'm experiencing confusion, depression and a deep sense of loss. The frame of my faith has collapsed. I always felt comforted in many of church's tea...
