Re: Fanny Alger, First Plural Wife?

Yes, I agree with Hawk. Even if Joseph had no sex with any wives by Emma, Someone on Facebook posted a note saying, Let’s assume Brian is right. For some reason, Joseph married 30+ women and never had sex with any of them. For additional unexplained reasons, he felt too uncomfortable to share any o...

Re: First Time Temple Freakout - You Weren't Prepared

I am close to what Faithful Skeptic says. I can say I was "freaked out", but more of a calm, "WTF was that about????" Since I was in the MTC at the time, "F" = "flip" of course. I thought it would get less weird as time went on, but it didn't. When I was finally close to a temple I went very regular...

Re: Heartfelt thanks and (maybe) parting thoughts

I have enjoyed you walking along this path for a bit with me (and others). You know where I live, so if you are ever visiting, let me know and we can get together.

Your a good man.

Re: No other success can compensate for failure in the home

Yep. About the equivalent of Bednar a year or so ago strongly implying that if parents would have kept the Sabbath better that it would have kept some kids from falling away from the church. BS! Allegedly God could only get 2/3 of his children to follow him. Wouldn't it be a bit presumptuous to thin...

Re: Looking for book recommendations about BY

I asked this some time ago in an online group and was told there wasn't exactly a "Brigham Young" equivalent of RSR, It was suggested "Brigham Young: Pioneer Prophet - John Turner", but I have not read it. It is on my list, but I have lost interest in really digging into BY as I just don't care for ...

Re: Church Donations to Help SLC Homeless People

Big :thumbup: But I just can't help but add, "I wish this wasn't so uncommon." Having spoken one on one with top leaders in the Humanitarian Department this is the goal. Right now there are various facets working on this. From their lips to my ears, "This is the direction the church wants to move."...

Re: Area Business Conference - Pres. Russell M. Nelson Visiting

Interesting. I hope you will return and give us the gist of what they were surveying.

Maybe you are going to be a pilot where they pay you $50 to clean the church for 1/2 an hour. :-)
