Re: Happiness: What Does It Mean To You?

Gerald, wow! That's quite a perspective there about death and mourning. I think I might have to check that book out sometime. Thank you.

Re: Happiness: What Does It Mean To You?

SamBee, I agree that excitement and mania aren't happiness. That and people can become addicted to those things. Thanks for letting me know about Asperger’s Disorder. I've found some websites that mention the term is being replaced with Autism Spectrum Disorder. When things are finally ultimately un...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I hope and pray that this forum won't end. I don't comment or post that often. I tend to read more often than post. Being introverted, but enjoying talking with people on a one-on-one basis, the COVID-19 has made it harder for me to want to go out that often. So most of the people I normally see is ...

Re: Studio C and JK Studios

Every once in a while, I'll watch it. I haven't watched it in a quite a while, though. There are some skits that are hilarious and some that are so-so. Honestly, I could never really get into Saturday Night Live. Though, Dana Carvey as The Church Lady was great. Some members of the church a long tim...

Re: Member perception of happiness

I agree, Roy, especially with Number 5. I think that's one of the reasons why the brethren weren't always so open or honest about our church's history. One thing I've noticed in the standard works is that although the ancient prophets were showed with weaknesses or sins here and there, mostly they s...

Re: Happiness: What Does It Mean To You?

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Sorry for being late in responding. Interesting, informing perspectives. I was trying to copy some of the comments, but for some reason, some of the pasting is a bit messed up on my end. Oh well. Have a good night, everyone.

Happiness: What Does It Mean To You?

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. As my faith in God and the Mormon Church has changed over the years, many things I believe about those subjects have changed over the years. My brief story: Yes, I was raised in the church, even baptized at 8 by my older brother before he served his missio...

Re: Article about Matthew Gong in the Trib

Thank for sharing the article, DarkJedi. I'm glad Gong's son has found peace with his sexuality. There are so many of these stories. They are sad. It feels to me like eventually the church leaders will realize they need to pivot and receive "more light and understanding" on this issue. I hope and pr...

Re: A quote from RBG

I've never heard of Ruth Bater Ginsburg. So far, it hasn't happened with me, but it has for my parents. It had nothing to with employment, though. It had to do with my parents trying to get a new place when they were young, if I remember their story correctly. I think it was a mobile home that they ...

Re: 9/13 Rasband face to face - the restoration proclamation

I'm really glad this topic was brought up. I remember seeing this face to face mentioned online. I can't watch these type of church meetings anymore. Too much cover-up for the church's past history, gas-lighting, and indicating following us can't lead you astray. I still watch General Conference, th...
