Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

Thanks for all the help and input from this group. I think as I am not at church regularly my questions and oppositions to what I see and hear are minimized. There is not as much I feel I need help with but it will certainly return. Even so, I have some current topics I need help on. I'll work out h...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

We will welcome you back no questions asked. Therein is the problem I have with the church. When you can ask me about and acknowledge my problem and offer reconciliation we can talk. If you want to ignore my issue and disregard my feelings then my trust continues at the cautious level. Sorry, thinki...

That song in both words and melody is inspiring and a most beautiful tribute. My own experience.

Missing Prayer in My Life

The title could just as well be Does Prayer Help. I haven't had a good prayer in a couple years. I feel like I should talk to my bishop but I don't know where to start. There is a root cause but it's buried so deep it would be hard to dig out and present to someone. I have lost faith in my leaders i...

Re: Starved for Connections

Sometimes I enjoy church on Sunday's. I listen to people discuss or teach gospel principals and I'm impressed with the depth of knowledge and can feel what I percive to be spiritual witness. At those times I aknowledge it to myself. Sometimes I look around at people and compare with the secular worl...

My Talk - Becoming a Witness of Christ

I'm speaking in Sacrament Dec 15th based on a 2008 Ensign article Becoming a Witness of Christ By Elder D. Todd Christofferson. I've started to lay it out and I'm thinking of examples I can use from the New Testament and other scriptures to cover some ancient witnesses then some examples from this d...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

Leaders have used the old "This is something the Lord wants you to do" or "I feel inspired you should do...X" so many times I'm numb to it now. It's what I believe that matters. It's easy to just say the Lord wants you to do something to get you to do it. But believing that one statement can hurl y...

Re: Extremely Rough Sacrament Meeting

Thank you for sharing that experience Curt, it helps me realize I need to try harder to "grin and bear it". Especially considering the speaker volume in the foyer, there's no escape except for leaving the building for a cool down lap. 😎 Before our current bishopric was put in place, going on five ye...
