I've developed a habit, unfortunately, of not getting enough sleep Saturday night. I stress quite a bit about having to go to church the next morning, and a lot of that is the accumulation of bad expereinces, and the history of lessons and testimonies which seem to condemn me... and I feel like I'm ...

That's tough. I've had a few friends who have worked for the area, and was good friends growing up with the son of the head property manager in my home stake. I always heard that the Church was one of the best employers. Large efforts have been made in the past to transfer those employees who's jobs...

I agree that the example Dandee related seems expressly against what's in the handbook, or what was in three of the handbook 1's that I've had (based on my memory, at least). The bishop and SP requirement for the guy sounds like something from the OT and D&C, but not the handbook. They're basically...

Very interesting point. I wonder what a Book of Laman or Book of Lemuel or Book of Sam might read like? The Book of Laman Chapter 18: "We've finally set up for ourselves a pretty good life here in the valley. It's been tough; we're still camping. But now Nephi's talking about how God told him in a ...
What a champ, LH! I wish I knew how you did it... I think most people take me to be a semi-active believer, who is "distracted" by his phone during church half the time.

Here's an apostatic... apostolic... idea: Many of the old religions have two primary, ancient dieties. In ancient Greece, there's the sky god (Uranus), and the earth god (Gaia). And from them, all the gods, and ultimately all of creation was born. Even better, the two gods were considered equal co-c...
Welcome, WR! I enjoyed hearing your story. As tough as it is, I have to say you seem like you're in a good place, and on your way to even better. I look forward to hearing more of your insights. P.S.S- after "my awakening" I often ponder what else in life I need to awaken from I think this is an AWE...
Before my FC, I thought all atheists were depressive nihilists. I was taught (partially through the BoM), that if you take God away, you are left with nothing but a meaningless emptiness. No purpose, no reason. I was surprised to discover some can be some of the most sensitive, poetic, empathetic pe...
