Re: Fanny Alger, First Plural Wife?

In FamilySearch.org they show JS with (43) spouses. Fanny Alger is not one of them. Did she stay in the church after JS's death? My understanding is that she didn't. Her family came and took her away somewhat quickly and she remarried another man (not a Mormon) and this sounds like what someone of ...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

There is a group called "Former Mormons with believing spouses". I am going blank on the name of the FB group name for the "other side of the fence" (believing spouses with former believers" or something like that).

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

It isn't a holiday that is a huge deal in Texas. I am not aware of anybody getting the day off. But it is well known in Texas.

Re: I can't anymore. I'm done with God.

Hypothetical question: if a person leaves the Church, but improves her relationship with God, is that a net gain? If you don't believe in the church's truth claims and social reasons aren't a factor, what benefit is there to staying in the church *if* you think that you will have a closer relations...
