Re: Youth and Fan Fiction

Personally I think they are harmless. I agree having open dialog is helpful, and can be very hard to get started, especially if the youth doesn't know that the parent knows or thinks that the stories they are reading are sexual explicit. It may give false expectations etc. but I think we all had fal...

Re: Being overwhelmed by others right now

Without knowing all of the details, the first thought that comes to mind is delegate, but that seems like too simplistic of an answer. Having dealt with people for way longer than I should have I realized only after getting out of the situation that like Roy said some people will always be needy. It...

Re: New Youth Program

I don't see a lot of change with this program. Maybe knowing that scouts was on the way out and there was no way there could be a replacement that would be able to compare with it, I just assumed we would get what we've heard were getting. It seems like the natural approach. I don't see weekly activ...

Re: True Pure Simple Gospel of Jesus Christ Relief Society Lesson

Nice that she was able to hear your lesson and that you went ahead with talking her out of primary. I think it's good for kids to attend older people classes now and then. I had experiences in scouting where parents complained that I was being my younger son on activities with the older boys. If I c...

Re: Sexual "Articles of Faith" for LDS Marital Intimacy

I found it interesting that under each heading in the article there was a small explanation, and under the "we believe pornography is forbidden", the explanation was much longer. It included this tidbit: "Well-meaning people sometimes pass on rules that don’t exist."

Re: Thoughts on Forigiveness and Trust in Committed, Long Term Relationships

This one's a tough one for me SD. I've been on both ends the issue having had linked trust and forgiveness together, forgiving and being taken advantage of again and again. I've forgiven and not trusted as well. This is where I am today after having been accused of some really nasty things by extend...

Re: Was Nephi a real person?

I totally get the Star Wars analogy. I similarly associate many things in life, ie Force to the Spirit, midichloridans to the priesthood etc. I thought about Moses as well when I started writing, as well as others. There are so many similarities with other fables. If someone at one time believed tha...

Was Nephi a real person?

It's a rhetorical question I guess. I've come to the point that I have moved from defending the BoM as historically accurate and how I used to try to fit the lands into existing maps, to a general agnosticism. Is it possible that there were these people that came from the old world to the new? Sure....

Re: TR interview and porn

Roy, your DD is very astute. She will do great in life. My youngest hates public speaking but makes it through it, in one sense I hate pushing him to speak, and the other I think it helps him (he's socially awkward like his dad). I've never had additional questions nor interpretations during the TR ...

Re: Cooking with alcohol

I don't have a problem with it. I grew up around alcohol and yes there are concerns about addiction in my family, but fortunately I never liked the hard stuff. Beer on the other hand... I brew my own home brew and burn off (most of) the alcohol. I also don't really have a problem with Non-alcoholic ...
