Re: My Tentative Conclusion about gospel convos with Traditional Believers

Now that I have read the thread - I will throw in a couple. Reading through this I realized the worst part of any conversation where you feel cornered is the inability to see or respond quickly. I end up pulling things apart for hours to learn "how not to blow" some future conversation with someone....

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

Stephies - This probably does very little - but I am sending a serious cyber hug to you. I will keep thinking extra good thoughts for you. That you may win the battle.

Thank you for honoring yourself and sharing your truth with us.

Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

It's worth the read.

Many good things in it. Including a financial donation.

One thing it lacks is our treatment of LGBTQ community. Address that, and I am on board.

Re: The New Inactives - Seniors

The large group of baby boomers (I'm one) are reaching retirement age. So the numbers of 54 to 70 years old people is at an all-time high, and any inactivity by this cohort will be exaggerated by the high numbers, but as a percentage I don’t think there is any more of a problems with the boomers th...

Re: Orrin Hatch Pleads for Acceptance of LGBT People on the Senate Floor

I attended our local Pride parade. I came to the conclusion as I watched the parade that the healthiest thing is to accept and move on. I am excited that an anchor Mormon took such a public stand. He is bucking a lot. That is risky. Brick by brick we will build the bridge that should have existed in...

Re: The New Inactives - Seniors

It makes sense to me on many levels. I just hadn't thought about it in a large scale way. We have one ward (I am sure it will be split soon) that is full of long timers. Nicest people, but they have done their bit. Even the Bishop takes quite a few weeks off. Can't blame them. Even from a TBM perspe...

Re: Elizabeth Smart: Forgiveness is another word for self-love

But reading her comments is inspiring to me - I wish I could have her sunny outlook. The well of her soul is incredibly deep. That is part of where I find a God-given-ness in the experience. She even had composure beyond her Mom. None of us can be her. But the inspiration can happily effect us all....
