Re: I hope Sacrament Meetings get better.

I'm looking forward to the Sunday after New Years.. I'll be disappointed if we don't sing "Ring Out, Wild Bells" .. Love that one! I'll even risk having to sit through F&T meeting in order to sing it. Just goes to show you can't please all the people all the time. I dislike that song and hope they ...

Re: I hope Sacrament Meetings get better.

On the downside, the counselor who chooses the hymns has very different musical taste to me. Some LDS hymn I love are never sung, and some of the ones I hate get sung regularly. As a BP, we just discussed pulling our music director aside with instructions to "keep it to the hits" with hymn selectio...

Dieter F. Uchtdorf - Share your stories and experiences

That’s what you do. You tell your stories and experiences as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sometimes your stories make people laugh. Sometimes they bring them to tears. Sometimes they will help people to continue in patience, resilience, and courage to face another ho...

Re: Of Uchtdorf and Hobbits

I enjoyed this talk and wish that we could hear more from Uchtdorf. I am not a big fan of the Hobbit series but I would love to hear him draw comparisons on the Star Wars Universe and the Gospel. Maybe I should send him some DVDs and some expanded universe stuff to get him started? By the way, I'll ...

Re: Change to Garment Question in Temple Recommend Interview

That was the first thing I noticed when looking at the questions. As a never-garment wearer, I don't fully grasp wearing them but I would imagine any kind of relief would be welcomed.

Re: Can't we be joyful?

Under Uchtdorf we will be joyful. I promise.
Whoa... That deserves another thread.

Joining Other Churches - My Experience

I had two Facebook friends decide to join other churches, one is still a member of the church (on the books) and one that used Quit Mormon. I have also joined Community of Christ through confirmation, not by baptism. I'm still technically on the books as well at the LDS church (I suppose). My friend...

Re: My Intro

I wanted my girls to grow up in the church, but I am happy now that they didn't. I wouldn't want them to go through worthiness interviews and be molded into some kind of TBM Wife for someone. I wouldn't have any problem if my girls marry a TBM, but I wouldn't choose it for them if given the chance. ...

Re: My Intro

I was in your shoes, My Wife is a never-mo and couldn't embrace the church. I went alone for many years until it became an issue in our marriage. I chose her over the church, because I think family is more important than church attendance. I would love for it to be different, but you can't force bel...

Re: I'm going to jail!

As luck would have it.. A nice lady I help with her congregation's Facebook page posted this.. She does Prison Ministry as well. She got an email from an inmate with a prayer.. Good Morning Everyone! This morning I feel moved to share something special with you, David's Prayer. It was written by one...
