Hi Simon movie

Here is a review I did for this movie out right now. Our gay son really appreciated it and I tried to be diplomatic to our friends and family who we disagree with. Hope you all see it. We saw "Hi Simon" tonight and it was excellent! It portrayed so much of what we went through with our youngest son....

Re: How to ask in faith without feeling jerked around

Hi Squarepeg, I do not post or come here often anymore, but on occasion, like today, i miss reading the amazing discussions on this group. I love people like you who are so honest, and think deeply about things. I can sooo relate to what you wrote. It is so painful and confusing. Like you mentioned ...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

I also understand the impact on vulnerable people enough to know that hearing, "We will never accept you as you are," is brutal and soul-shattering. Thanks for saying this Ray. A man named, John Bonner posted this today on Mormons Building Bridges and said I could share it on any group. I think thi...

Re: How do you reconcile Joseph Smith?

DarkJedi and mom3 both bring up the technically true point that excommunication standards have changed. But... Many of you talk about JS being imperfect and making mistakes but still a prophet. Problem I have is that if any of us had made those same mistakes we would be excommunicated. Scriptures t...

Re: How do you reconcile Joseph Smith?

Many of you talk about JS being imperfect and making mistakes but still a prophet. Problem I have is that if any of us had made those same mistakes we would be excommunicated. Scriptures talk about qualifications of a bishop or leader and JS would not qualify. Soo... as much good as he did, that is ...

Re: Poll: What was your shelf-breaker?

Part of mine and my husbands' were not getting spiritual confirmations of the church and BofM has promised. We had often fasted and prayed about whether JS was a true prophet, the church was true, the BofM, and before going to the temple. We really wanted it to be true and had hoped but the spiritua...

Re: No Eternal Family without Ordinances and Endurance?

Last year my brother (a TBM) called me to talk about our leaving the lds church (but not officially taken our names off the records). It really bugged me when he said that, I would not have my marriage for eternity, because of leaving the church. What he said was very manipulative. I told him that w...

Re: Going to two churches

Great question, 'always thinking". When we moved to Florida 7 years ago, we had a bad run in with the new bishop. Plus this new ward was very cold. I also did not feel like I was growing spiritually anymore attending there. So, I attended some other Christian churches in our area and made some wonde...

Re: LDSLiving - For Those Who Are Done With Church—The Rest of Us Need You Desperately

When we moved to Florida 7 years ago, we contacted the new bishop for help in moving in. He told me that because my family was not active and because my testimony of the BofM was weak, he could not help us. We did go to church there a few times, but no one even said hello to us at church. Most unfri...
