Re: How do you minister in the new ministering program?

Make the contact be about them. Their family. Their needs. Listen intently and hear them. Too often, people listen — only waiting for a break in the conversation . They don’t hear anything.

I've known some young women who've struggle with porn, etc, yet it's ultra-stigmatized, which I think hurts their ability to be open and honest about it (beyond that of young men).

Proselytizing without Eternal Family mention

Background: I came across a story of an adult woman who had a child on her own. Father unknown. She later joined the church.

Re: Why? Do you have to hurt my Children too.

That includes members that no one has seen in 20 years. Active members are probably more like 0.5%. Many Christian locals conside...

Re: Lindsey Stirling - Rock Star

Why is it that men can play professional sports (which are entertainment) like basketball and no one asks them about their garments. A man can dance in a leotard and no one asks about his garments. A man can do a shirtless episode in a play and no one asks about his garments. A woman does something ...

Re: Why the law of chastity?

I will verify that LookingHard is so handsome that serving staff at the restaurant were sliding him their phone numbers along with the check. The one with the lipstick and "call me" seemed a little forward.
