Re: Resignation

At the risk of sounding completely unstable and crazy, :crazy: I must confess that I once resigned from the church. Both my husband and I. Ten years ago. The crazy part is the fact that a year later, we went back. A year later, we left again. Two years later, after the death of our son, I traded in ...

Re: What's the purpose of going to church?

Heber, with everything going on, on top of my shelf collapsing for the third time in ten years, it has been harder and harder to see the benefits being worth the pain and cognitive dissonance. My kids are very important to me, and I agree that they should be able to decide what they believe, but the...

Re: What's the purpose of going to church?

I used to go because I believed. Post faith crisis/transition...I go mainly because I have three teenagers who are all in presidencies, and a big part of their social life and friendships are there. I also teach primary with my husband, which I have a love/hate relationship with. I love the kids, bu...

Re: Section 132 in the Year 2015

This is a great topic for discussion Ann. Like you, this really bothers me too. I do not believe in it. I do not condone it. It makes me physically sick to think about it too much. :sick: I just want to share that this week I listened to the " A Thoughtful Faith" podcast featuring Kirk and his wife,...

Re: Tipping Point

Leader worship. This is a big one for me. Modesty enforcement and body shaming are another one. There are others, but those are ones that popped into my head first.

Re: Basics of the church. What do you believe.

There is a lot I am uncertain about, but I believe my experiences in the church, both positive and negative, have helped me grow and learn a lot about myself. The only thing I feel like I know for sure is that life does not end in death, and I have felt what I believe to be God's love for me on occa...

Re: Death

I appreciate this question being asked. I haven't been on this board for many months, as my recent FC has left me feeling so empty and depressed. The main reason for this is the topic of death. I lost an almost full term baby not too many years ago, and I have never really looked at death the same w...

Re: What awakens your desire for deeper commitment?

I am trying to figure this one out myself SD. I would say that my two teenage daughters are a big reason right now. They are making good friends that have good values. When you live far from Utah, this becomes a trickier thing. I think Mormon Stories interviews with parents that raise their children...

Re: Cry me a river...

That's funny, although not surprising at all.

When I hear the word "sweetheart" I visualize Han Solo's sarcastic nickname for Princess Leia. "Don't assume nothin' sweetheart." or "Sorry Sweetheart. I haven't got time for anything else."

I know. I'm such a nerd. :smile:
