Re: Feeling pulled apart

I think the advice here is all great! I just wanted to also add that there's a podcast actually called Marriage on a Tightrope that is specifically about a mixed faith couple and them still figuring things out. It's a very uplifting podcast, and they interview other couples who are also mixed faith....

Re: If it's true and essential, then why is not widely known?

SD said: "Although I wonder why he gives us answers to prayers telling us to join the church when it may not be what it says it is? I asked if it was true and if I should join. I felt the Spirit strongly enough to forge ahead. I often wonder if he was more concerned that at that point in my life, it...

Re: If it's true and essential, then why is not widely known?

I have also thought on this subject before. What I've come to believe is that, if there is a God, he doesn't seem especially attached to any one religion over another. Things are so unclear with every religion in the world claiming to be God's true church, and so many religious books, and so many di...

Re: Equality in priesthood between men and women

There is definitely a shift in the way this is being described. However, I find it not only very unsatisfying, but more than a little frustrating as well. To me, it falls along the lines of saying "hate the sin, love the sinner". It's meant to soften a position, but all it does is makes the Church ...

Equality in priesthood between men and women

I was wondering today if anyone else is noticing a shift in the way priesthood is talked about in relation to men and women? I feel like the way it used to be talked about, even 3-4 years ago felt like women have 20% priesthood power and men have 100%. Today, though, there was a lesson where they we...

Re: How Happy Are You?

I've been quite happy for the last while. Things have been hectic which adds some stress, but more often than not, I am enjoying life and feel lucky to be alive.

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...
