Youth interviews are a very big concern of mine, for when my kids get to that stage. I still have a couple of years before my oldest turns 12, but it is...

Re: Temple Prep for Daughters

I do my best to look at it like Ray and Roy, that it is just an outdated cultural thing that will hopefully someday be changed, but it is still very hard to hear and deal with. I was so excited when I heard that new temple films were coming out, and I was just sure that this issue would be addressed...

Re: Heads Up - Ensign Article on Doubting

I saw this article as well, and was uncomfortable by its implication that questions are fine, but doubts are bad. It seemed to create an alternate definition of "doubt".

From an SL Trib article: "But Oaks, a former Utah Supreme Court justice, wasn't sure apologizing for pa...

Re: New Essay on Polygamy! (update, a 2nd one posted also)

Today seems to have been a bit of a media explosion for the Church, having news stories of the plural marriage essays making front page news in many major news outlets. The Church seems to have responded by this article in the newsroom of LDS.org. http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/church-provide...

Just Taking it a Day at a Time

I am a pretty quiet person in real life, usually listening more than talking, and that also comes across in my online communications as well.
