Re: What Does Everyone Here Think of The New Church History Book Called Saints

I think they did a good job making it into an interesting story, and I was glad to see them admitting to some things about the past. As you and others have said though, it was not as forthcoming as I was hoping. I didn't like how much they put Joseph on a pedestal. They seem like they want to show "...

I need help with a lesson, please?

My husband is teaching a priesthood lesson soon and his assigned conference talk is The Correct Name of the Church by Russell M. Nelson. He tends to be a nuanced teacher and tries his best to find ways to teach the lessons in ways that can be useful in people's lives. He and I are having a VERY toug...

Re: Help (In a Good Way)

I really like a lot of the suggestions here. I was remembering something that I really enjoyed while I was struggling in my faith crisis. I remember feeling very alone and like I couldn't tell anyone about my questions because I didn't want anyone else to go through what I was going through. Anyways...

Re: Saints: the Standard of Truth

1) I am interested to see the footnote on the angel telling JS to keep it secret except from people with unwavering "integrity". I am not sure I remember that part. That seems to excuse JS from being deceitful to his wife and others. I would imagine this was their way of starting to introduce the i...

Re: Saints: the Standard of Truth

So I just finished reading it recently. I was skimming through it to see what they did and didn't bring up. I found that the troubling parts of church history that they did bring up, were talked about in a very apologetic manner and leaned toward positive light. If there is something we don't have 1...

Joseph Bishop (old MTC president sexual assaulting sister missionaries) situation

I've noticed no one else has posted about it. Hopefully it's allowed? I know it's been bothering me. If we don't rant, I'm assuming it would be okay to talk about it. I mainly just want to see if it's bothering you all too, and if not, how are you reconciling it personally? Sent from my XT1254 using...

Re: Rediscovering a new Godhead...

What if the Holy Ghost IS Heavenly Mother? :shock: Dh and I have played with this idea, as I know others have. It would make sense as the holy ghost is the comforter and is there to speak to us. It sounds better than a Mother in Heaven who is never allowed to speak to us or be near us. What kind of...

Re: Speaking up in class

Thanks everyone. These were some good points. I used to think I would never be able to do this, but as I am getting closer to the end of my anger phase, I find myself feeling strong enough and comfortable in myself enough to try it. I also, as Nibbler said, feel like I'm at a point where I have noth...

Speaking up in class

Hello, all. So I'm in a new place in my faith transition where I feel like I need to try and speak up in class more in order to stand being there. I am a quiet person and tend to have a hard time making comments, but sitting through lessons, even the few times I go, and NOT saying anything has becom...

Re: New Random Thought About Inspiration

I had to read your post history because this was an idea similar to one my husband was telling me he'd come up with a few months ago. Totally thought you might be him haha. His idea was similar. His idea was basically: what if there's a "god" part of our brain. Maybe that prompting feeling is actual...
