Re: Nelson in Africa

I wonder if there are occurrences of female genital mutilation among the saints in Africa. I assume that there aren't any as RMN would probably want to put a halt to that post haste. Interesting thought. I would hope they'd address that, too. It tends to be non-Christians, notably Muslims who do th...

Re: Can't remember why I'm hurt but I still am!

Doctor told me some people's brains are more sensitive to emotion, and mine is definitely. When I feel things, I really feel things. And they make a really strong memory....I wish I didn't have that characteristic -- it serves no good purpose I can see. It creates long lasting memories that can be ...

Re: May I have your, Belief-O-Matic, please?

Most of these questions didn't have my answer, either, and I didn't like how they lumped in "I don't know" with a lot of atheist-leaning answers for some questions. Never-the-less, this was fun. I was worried I wouldn't score high for any religion. I was surprised with how high my percentages were, ...

Re: I've decided I will be opening up to my bishop

Hi Beefster, As a YSA who is now an inactive non-believer some of TBM theology, I thought I'd comment: First of all, I feel like I've been in a similar place. There was a time when I realized that keeping my struggles to myself was stifling me and my intimate relationships with other people. From my...

Status Update & Seeking Advice

Hello, StayLDS Ward! It's been awhile. Some of you you may know me and some may not, but several months ago I quietly stepped away from the steeple (not having my records removed or anything like that) and also this site. I felt at peace with where I was at and it was the right decision for me at th...

Re: Bargaining - FC 5 Stages of Grief

Hi Beefster, I've actually taken a step away from this site and from the Church, although I do still lurk the boards. I wanted to drop in and write a response because I can hear a lot of what I went through in your posts. I joined this forum I was a YA in college, and it's been a few years since I h...

Re: A Farewell & Thank You

Thank you all for your kind words :) I truly appreciated all your comments. @amateurparent Thank you for the suggestion. I may very well check them out. Now that I've entered a new phase, I feel like I might need a little support from people who are also in "transition" and have been through the dis...

A Farewell & Thank You

I believe that it's been over 2 years since I joined this site, although I was a lurker for much, much longer. It provided me a soft place to land when I felt like the ground had dropped out from under me. I really cannot thank everyone here enough. Thank you to everyone who posts, and especially Ra...

Re: Help me understand what the Apostles were thinking!

My opinion? It just showed to me the depths of which the Brethren are not listening. I imagine that when gay marriage became legal in the United States, the 12 and First Presidency got together in a meeting and said something along the lines of “Alright, how are we going to respond to this? This is ...

Re: Coming out to my BYU student ward

First of all, I'll preface this by saying it's really not my place to try and tell someone how they should or shouldn't come out. That's very personal and up to you. Above all, I think it's important that you do this on your own terms with lots of consideration for what you want and what it will mea...
