Re: Josh Weed is divorcing

I have so much respect for Josh and Lolly and their story is absolutely heartbreaking to me. Not because they are getting divorced, because I do think that will bring both of them more happiness and authenticity... but it is heartbreaking that they were ever in this situation. I think they both made...

Re: Age of Faith Crisis

I was 23 when it kind of started "crumbling" for me and 28 when it really fell apart.

Re: Who is Russel M. Nelson?

I just read this article that the SL Tribune posted about the old leadership and millennials. As a millennial myself, I think a younger prophet and calling younger apostles could do wonders... http://www.sltrib.com/religion/local/2018/01/07/mormon-churchs-gay-policy-shows-the-next-prophets-challenge...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

It's funny that he mentions when you have questions/doubts turn to the scriptures or words approved by the church on LDS.org... Too bad the essays the church published is where I learned about problems in church history and that really shook my foundation... That talk just had me all :sick:

Re: How do you reconcile Joseph Smith?

- The church is more of a tool or a process than a destination or trophy. Daniel could have misunderstood his purpose in waxing Mr Miyagi's cars or sanding his deck, we may initially misunderstand the full purpose of our church membership. I seriously love this, thanks Orson. I am trying to rebuild...

Re: Down the Rabbit Hole & Back.

I haven't heard of MOPS, but I'll have to look into that. It is hard to diversify in Utah, but I do agree that it would be good for me to extend my social circle. I am a very social person, so part of my struggle with being a "weird" Mormon is that I feel like normal Mormons won't really want to be ...

Re: How do you reconcile Joseph Smith?

God allowed Joseph to try to figure things out...and sometimes he got things wrong. God's plan is not about avoiding mistakes, but dealing with them. That helps me reconcile Joseph Smith. He was a prophet dealing with mistakes and imperfection. God allows that. And that helps me figure out my life ...

Re: Is it a test of faith?

I completely agree that it is a test of love. My orthodox sister almost didn't come to my other sister's wedding, because my sister happens to be a lesbian. I finally told my orthodox sister this... "maybe the church is putting an emphasis on homosexuality and God really doesn't care. Maybe all God ...

Down the Rabbit Hole & Back.

I have been lurking here since 2014 (and occasionally posting) and I decided it's time for my official introduction. My background is very typical. I grew up in Utah in a large, Mormon family (however, both of my parents are converts and a few of my siblings stopped going to church around their late...
