Credit Where Credit Is Due

In the past weeks I have spilled my resentful guts all over the page. The vent was appreciated. As the dust of my soul settles I do believe that a potential for silver linings exist in the blizzard clouds. I think this church Presidency/Q15 wants a less programmed church I think making room for pers...

Re: Help (In a Good Way)

I am a huge Chieko fan. I would encourage listening to her talks as well as reading them. Her style and delivery added to the message. She often brought examples like quilts, jars of fruit, etc. We also need to hear from other LDS women. My friend taught the lesson last week as a sub. She was so fru...

Re: New Sunday Worship

This is the subject of an entire different thread but compared to other churches I've been to our chapels are... uninspiring to put it mildly. We've got the burlap halfway up the walls, no windows, all interior walls, all artificial light, permanent cheerio dust and glitter ground into the utilitar...

Re: New Sunday Worship

Remember in Lord of the Rings where there was an obvious climax, the movie was done, and then there was a whole other two hours? That's our church. I love this part. It's when Gandalf falls down with the Balrog right before Bilbo's birthday. I love the card Aragorn sends. One church I went to the a...

Re: New Sunday Worship

I have such a fantasy about my perfect Sacrament Meeting - It's dang scary. On a less scary note - My ward has been having more Christ or scripture focused Sacrament Meetings for the past 6 months. It does make a difference. Not every talk is great, but we've stepped up away from lectures. I like it...

Re: I May Throw Up...

On Own Now wrote - My suggestion is that when these women reappear on social media, read their posts for a day without commenting and the next day post, "Sorry gals, I'm just getting back now, because my fast went up to 11." Mister, You are brilliant. Consider your idea taken. This is gonna be fun....

New Sunday Worship

I know I have been most crabby here recently. However, I do still look for good. The following is a huge good in my opinion. It's a bit of a read but I couldn't say it better than it is. Read it when you have time. It's about New Sacrament Meeting Guidelines. https://bycommonconsent.com/2018/10/15/t...

Re: I May Throw Up...

The request didn't have to be made at all. Just throwing that out there as a viable option.
Amen.

Re: I May Throw Up...

I have a huge problem with a social media fast requested exclusively of women. Thing is, he could have chosen to make it an adult request, but he didn't. The excuse that the men didn't get it because there was no Priesthood meeting is bunk. He spoke at every session. The request should have been ma...
