Re: Priests to be able to perform baptisms for the dead

They read it today. The gasp was crazy. I forget I am on the "knowledge" side of the fence. So while I am rolling my eyes, everyone else is all "oh, ah, wow."

Re: Two Guests for Christmas

Great quote DJ - Brother Smithmas didn't arrive in our Sacrament Meeting today. We had a talk on Gratitude. The other was the HC speaker. He's a friend. Big BofM dude. But that is why we have cell phones and tablets. The Book of Luke is the perfect distraction. I liked his ending story. But no Smith...

Re: Two Guests for Christmas

I expect this week's SM (the one before Christmas Eve) to focus on JS because it's his birthday Dear lord, No!!! This will make the weekend a full wipe out. Our Ward Christmas Party is twist on the Grinch story. Except Cindy Loo Woo teaches the Grinch that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. (I eav...

Young women (12 - 18) will be able to hand out the towels.

Re: Youth Bishop Interviews

The following account is absolutely true. As a ward YW Pres. I was driving the girls home one night from an activity. A particular girl asked if she could be last. When we pulled into her drive way she began to cry. Being the good leader that I was I hugged her and asked if she needed to talk. Throu...

Re: Helping a Mourning Parent

I am not a trained counselor (Mr. Sneelock has great insight), I would write her a note. Something you can mail or stick in her door. In the note tell her that you miss her, maybe even share your own struggle so she has a sense that other parents have similar struggles (and that she isn't alone), le...

When I let my heart imagine it, we could be true Mormons (which according to Joseph Smith meant "More Good"). To love with less judgement and more sincerity. To use our...
