Re: Light the World

I understand the checklist mentality, and the reasons that it isn't good, or could be so much better. Some people respond well to checklists, without them they would not do as much as they do in life. I'm one of those people. For me, these seasonal service oriented programs are good. I wish I was mo...

Re: Spiritual Role of Emotions

In a recent talk I gave, I compared the spirit to differing emotions, the underlying idea was also that the spiritual, emotional, and intellect are all combined. I've always tried to differentiate between my own emotions and feeling the spirit, and I've had spiritual experiences that I felt that wer...

For me and my wife, it is not really a Mormon standard as it is a relationship standard. It is personal.
This. This is where the rubber meets the pavement. Well put, and I would like to add that for some couples their relationship standard may say a little is ok now and then.

Each award could be an extra long fringe to put on the borders of a white shirt, which is the uniform of the priesthood. :angel: :angel: :angel: :angel: :angel:

How about now with the bsa allowing girls? Maybe fringe that covers the knees?

... the definition of perfect as being whole and complete (as opposed to without flaw) then striving towards perfection is a state of being where we are acting out our wholesomeness, our completeness - as we understand it at any given time.

Re: Hello!

I cannot understand what you are going through. The thought of my own children being victims and having those videos out there is scary and horrible. Unfortunately it may be impossible to track down and delete them all, knowing how the internet works and doesn't work, there may be programs that can ...

Re: Finding my way

I understand that for a lot of people, porn is not a big deal but it has been for me. I started at such an early age that it impeded my ability to form relationships and has now drained the life out of my marriage. If I can't find recovery then my marriage will soon be over. For many of us we grew ...

Re: Finding my way

I would like to tell my story and you are welcome to read it if you want. I think it's mostly therapeutic for me to have it all written down. Writing it all out was helpful for me as well. I wrote mine out before i posted my intro here because i had so much going on in my head, and others on this s...

Re: A Thread For Talks and Lessons

I'm not sure how that impacts their opinions of those who express it honestly, and callings are reconsidered or cautioned based on this...I don't know that for sure...but...I do hear this kind of talk in church more frequently and it is less shocking, I think. I may be released lol. Just kidding, i...

perfectionism often stops you from beginning because you think that accomplishing anything that isn't perfect is a waste of time.
Brilliant :)

Beefster, I've always been a fan of more open talk, and it sounded like you handled the lesson very well.
