Re: 3 wards desolved in my Stake on Sunday

I only wish we could see something like that in my stake. I am in Northern California in a rather conservative area. Our ward has shrunk to have average attendance around 100-110. Many Sundays I count about 75-80 people. Our YW program has 6 girls in it. There are probably 5 YM total. There are a fe...

Re: 1st Presidency Letter - supposed to read to all members

The letter was read in my ward today. Every member of the bishopric was out of town so the HPGL was conducting. There were a total of 75 people in attendance today. (Yes, I counted.) The letter was read in a combined opening exercises of RS and PH where the youth were invited to sit in. The opening ...

Re: Can I complain about garments?

Slowly, I feel the same. I have recently been wearing them a little less. Maybe just the top or the bottom, depending on how obvious it is. I feel so much cooler without them, and much more free. In fact my clothes fit better. But my husband has no idea and I don't intend to tell him. I just change ...

Re: Follow the Prophet, and everyone else...

I have waited a while to respond and explain any more about my husband and his testimony, mostly because I found the comments of OON hurtful and I was offended. I understand no offense was intended, but I was hurt anyway. He is right that I came to vent, and I felt he basically told me to deal with ...

Follow the Prophet, and everyone else...

My husband bore his testimony today. He generally has a simple, fervant testimony of the Book of Mormon, the gospel, and the prophets. Today, for some reason, he focused in on how we are to follow those who have been called to serve. You know, the GA's, the SP's, the Bishops, etc. All of them are ca...

Re: This year's Easter campaign

F&T meeting here. No Easter. And they wonder why people don't think we are Christian?? Not even an Easter hymn. But I did laugh out loud when the opening prayer giver thanked God profusely for the abundant sunshine, and mentioned a few sentences later that we are fasting for rain. I guess I have to ...

Re: Pinpointing the start of faith issues

It's funny you should ask what precipitated my FC, because I was wondering that myself earlier this week, and then I remembered what started it all. I read the essay on Race and the Priesthood. I think I was just surfing around on lds.org, which I do occasionally. I taught youth SS and there is a lo...

Re: Rough Day Today

Mom3, sorry it was such a tough day. We had ward conference. It was fine, I have stopped listening too closely, although our bishop spoke on the idea of being able to change and be better. That we can all become more converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. He quoted the Mosiah idea of no more dispo...

Re: More from My New Temple Calling

Thanks for your temple insights Ray. I have not been to the temple in almost a year. I have never gone that long before, and I wish I could say I miss it, but I don't. Your comments do remind me of the peaceful spirit that is there. I miss the quiet, but honestly not the endowment session. I should ...
