Re: General Conference this weekend

Thanks Dark Jedi...yeah alot of my lds women friends were offended by the 'bitter fruit' saying in regards to 'out of wedlock' babies. My daughter had my oldest grandson out of wedlock at 16. He is an absolute gem that has brought nothing but joy to so many lives. Yet, I know members who were born u...

Re: President Hinkley interview on Larry King Live circa 1998

My husband and I remember this interview well. We were soo disappointed and shocked when Larry King asked him about that couplet about 'as God was, man could become etc.' was something we did not believe anymore. He did not seem like a prophet at all to us. I had read his bio and he seemed like he h...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

Regarding the Uchtdorf talk on unruly children hurting their parents and leaving the church....I remember the lds church leaders praising my Catholic young adult friends when they left the Catholic church and deeply hurt their parents. They were called courageous and truth seekers. I certainly did n...

Re: What does a Temple Recommend mean to you?

First, my own beliefs are not that the temple recommend will get you into heaven and neither will the signs and tokens. It's all symbolic. As to the temple itself, I also don't get much out of it either. To those people who say they learn something new every time they go there I say BS (not out lou...

Re: What does a Temple Recommend mean to you?

I think I was taught that holding a temple recommend and being able to go to the temple meant you were a member in good standing and worthy of receiving the ordinances essential to get into the highest degree of the celestial kingdom. Which meant you would be able to spending eternity with your fami...

Re: Should I feel guilty?

I distinctly remember this saying. I remember telling my husband this saying when he was so busy with callings in the church that he had no time for me or the kids. My husband believed that doing his church callings was putting the Lord first. He equated the church with God. I felt like a married si...

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...
