Re: The big one: Being a woman in the temple.

It tells us absolutely nothing, since your mother-in-law is wrong. That is not a church-wide policy. I'm glad to hear that. Maybe it was just a Utah policy or specific to the temple she was working at (I forget which one, Timpanogos maybe?) From my conversations with abused women, there are a lot o...

Re: The big one: Being a woman in the temple.

This was the big one for me - women in the temple, and the role of women. It wasn't until I went to the temple that I realised how bad it was in the church. From my conversations with abused women, there are a lot of men out there that simply do not deserve the role of priesthood holder in the famil...

Re: When Does Word of Wisdom get disavowed?

I suggest you watch the movie Fireproof. I tried to get my husband to, and perhaps find a way forward. I even followed the steps myself towards him, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work in reverse. So it may work for you? Even if it doesn't you have made a good effort to save the marriage. I truly ...

Re: When Does Word of Wisdom get disavowed?

Alex, I hope I don't offend you with what I am about to post. I thought I would share my issue with my husband and maybe shed some light on how your wife could be feeling. This will be hard for me as I am waiting until after Christmas/New Year to take action and leave the marriage. My husband gamble...

Re: No longer belong here ..

I can see why people leave church and drop friendships as well. I am finding that a lot of the time the only thing we have in common is church! However, I do have some lovely friends and have been bought to tears by the words of a few (in a good way), 1) One friend organised afternoon tea via facebo...

Re: Full of Angst on Saturday night

I thought it was just me! I have suffered bad headaches over the years, I have identified what I think are the causes (eye strain, neck strain, hormonal, stress, lack of sleep etc). Since giving up taking the kids to seminary, they dropped off substantially - from every day to once every week or so....

Re: No longer belong here ..

Thanks for your perspective everyone. I'll admit I was thinking quite selfishly and not thinking about contributing to others! It's interesting that I no longer consider myself "LDS"! I was filling in a form today for enrolment to a new school for son and I was unsure what to put for religion. I end...

No longer belong here ..

I guess I no longer belong on StayLDS, Last week I sent an email to Bishop, RS President, YW President and a few other key people saying that we will no longer be attending church. It is not an official resignation as DH still has a strong testimony, but simply does not want to attend. It appears th...

Re: Seminary is so hard - conversation with my daughter

Unfortunately, our experience was all negative, so don't read further if you only want positives :) We stopped going for some of the reasons others have stated. My girls went from lovely, pleasant teens to grumpy, miserable sods. The school called me to discuss what was going on at home because they...

Re: Do you pay tithing?

No, we do not pay tithing. When we were full tithe payers we had nothing left for giving to what we considered worthwhile charities. I think now on the years we did pay, and how much that was and wonder how many disadvantaged children could have been supported with that rather than building more tem...
