Re: Jana Riess on shame and fear

Our Bishop moved recently. It was during Covid, so no church or formal release. It arrived in email. That Bishop was a great listener. He took so many to lunch to let them air their issues. No judgement. Tons of love. Always friendly. Chill. My husband reached out by email to say "thanks and good-lu...

Re: Challenging discussion

This is beautiful. I am glad you got to share. And that it went well. After a decade of silence my extended family is pursuing mine (and my family's) status with a bit more vigor. It's a fun fine line. Part of that line for me, is I have no desire to crumble anyone else's faith. If they hit a bad pa...

Re: July 2020 Ensign

From my end, I am hoping the Ensign, as slanted as it may be will loosen up some of the tensions that exist in families. I recently stepped in it with my family. My slight opinion, started a watershed of tears, phone calls, texts, etc. We didn't crash, but I hadn't realized the fear from the my fami...

Re: Week Eight of Lockdown

The following just arrived from our Bishopric. My favorite statement is we as a Bishopric and other ward leaders have sent messages on the Sabbath or using technology have connected to the groups for whom we have stewardship. The recent direction encourages us to NOT do that. Occasional messages fro...

Re: Week Eight of Lockdown

SD - Great suggestion.

Tapping also works wonders on Stress Release. Also feel free to PM me. I am big on meditation, spiritualism, rejuvenation. I can point you to healing books and practices. Church or no church, don't let yourself be robbed by something you can detach from.

I scribble, journal, vent - everywhere. It's soul healing for me. Enjoy.

Re: Week Eight of Lockdown

Go with peace.

And I pray you find a space of forgiveness. Not for the wrong done by someone else. And not for you to "return to the church". But for your own heart. Forgiveness free's the forgiver.

Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

I don't know when church will open back up, and I don't think that I will be one of the first families back. Me, neither. I have a neighbor who had Stage 4 cancer who insisted on attending church. No matter how much I begged her not, she still went. I assume she felt she'd made a pact with God and ...

Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

We don't do home church and family members barely notice the difference between Saturday and Sunday these days.
Us, too. Only we can't tell the difference between any of the seven days of the week.

Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

My 6 year old nephew said in the opening prayer he gave for his family's first Sunday at Home. "I like home church. I don't want to go back again." - His dad is in the Bishopric. His mom teaches early morning seminary. He's cute, outgoing - and hates regular Sunday church. My sister shared it in a f...
