Re: Missing Prayer in My Life

Thank you for bringing this subject up for discussion. I grew up in a lds household, but my mom was very mentally ill after WWII in Germany. My dad would have us gather for family prayer with each family member (including my mom) taking turns. We all dreaded it when mom said the prayer because she w...

LDS LGBT answers to prayer

Questions and comments: So many lds lgbt kids went through a lot of turmoil because they felt the church and God was rejecting them. My own son was a wreck as a teenager over this. Finally he became angry at the church and God and rejected both. He joined the online 'raving atheists' group, but foun...

Re: Promised Blessings

There was a time in my life that I felt like I had been doing all the right things in church, (paying tithing, going to the temple, fasting, reading scriptures, praying. etc) but none of the blessings seemed to be coming. In fact everything had gotten worse. My kids were in trouble and my husband di...

Re: Church to allow baptisms, blessings for children of LGBT parents, updates handbook regarding 'apostasy'

Obviously happy for our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. But can we rage a bit about how we got here? President Nelson came out in January 2016 and emphatically proclaimed that this policy was revelation! Direct from God. He described the process of how President Monson received the revelation from God, ...

Re: Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend

I want to mention that when I told my young married visiting teaching companion about these marriage encounters she said she could never do those because it would cause a divorce. I asked her what she would like to tell her husband if she could. She said I would like to be able to tell him to bring ...

Re: Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend

My husband and I have gone to several of them. First at a 7th Day Adventist church that we loved. And then at some Christian non denominational ones. The best part we learned was how to use analogies to express our feeling. It helped in dealing with our kids two. We wanted to become a part of these ...

Re: TR interview and porn

My sister was asked if she and her husband had oral sex. She told him it was none of his business and walked out. When my oldest son was a teenager he did the same when asked about masturbation. What other churches do this? Annoys me especially when I think of some of the stuff JS did morally behind...

Re: Ending Pageants

We went to the "City of Joseph" musical in Nauvoo for years with our kids, ward, and relatives. It was a great family time and we loved it. It strengthened everyone's testimony at the time as it was a feel good musical. Yes, there were always anit-Mormon groups handing out their tracts and I would a...

Re: SL Tribune: Church not handling sexual assault well for missionaries

I served in Austria in 1969-71. Looking back, I can see how dangerous a mission can be. Just tracking door to door, you never know who is behind a door and could attack you. We had guys in underwear greet us at the door who welcomed us to come in and 'teach them the gospel." We had mentally ill peop...
