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...

Re: Missing Prayer in My Life

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, ...
