Re: Help (In a Good Way)

I think a good one to talk about would be You Belong It is a talk a high counselor gave. It tells in a loving way not to react to someone not believing something by telling/signalling "You MUST BELIEVE!!!" Also reiterate Uchtdorf's talk on Come Join with us mentioning that we shouldn't assume that j...

You forgot the sex stuff. There's always some sex stuff going on in these cases. :shh:
Where ever there are kids being born, you have to assume there is sex going on. :-)

Re: Where There’s Hope - by Elizabeth Smart

I just read it a few weeks ago and I would agree. I am glad that she keeps poking at a few things within the church that need to change. Church members really feel sympathy for her, so she has their ear. Plus she speaks/writes very well. I am glad she didn't leave the church as this would discount h...

Re: Two Hour Church

I don't get why Elder Holland was going around saying, "You had better have your testimonies strong before conference as it will be test your faith". What? There is NOBODY that is upset with this. Maybe Elder Holland thought people loved every minute of the 3 hour block. I have seen nothing but smil...

Re: Tonight Is The Last Night My Wife Will Come To The Temple With Me.

I am usually sharing this quote with ex/post-Mormons so they can present it to their believing spouses/family members. But it applies here. A prophet of God once offered me counsel that gives me peace. I was worried that the choices of others might make it impossible for our family to be together fo...

Re: Tonight Is The Last Night My Wife Will Come To The Temple With Me.

You picked an appropriate name for this site. There are thousands of people that wish their spouse would be so supportive. Many attempt "unrighteous dominion" and force their companion to comply (even though they don't believe). But I do recognize the pain. It hurts me that my loss of faith really h...

Re: Can you be "All in?"

Good to hear from you FaithfulSkeptic. I was just thinking about you the other day as my wife actually traveled to where you are. I wish things were going better for you. I have found that I look at "doubt your doubt before you doubt your faith" as more like, "don't make a rash decision". I do think...

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

I am not sure Sam "wanted" to be ex'ed, but I do think he was "willing" to be ex'ed. I do think one other thing at play that he probably got caught up in is the same thing that John Dehlin found, but Sam's probably was harder. John mentioned that after he started getting some attention, he was flood...

Re: Why Do You Stay?

For my marriage. But "stay" is moving to "only attending sacrament meeting and not accepting callings".
