Re: Falling Apart

I agree with you on many counts, Shawn. I'm sorry you are having a really difficult time. I am also trying to figure out what to do with the new information I have. The realities of polygamy, polyandry, etc., have really upset me, along with many other things. I can't really reconcile what I have be...

Re: Church videos and depression

I kind of agree with you. On the one hand I guess it is good to think about all we do accomplish in a day and the many ways we help others, but in this video I felt like I was watching a woman who hasn't learned how to say no.
