Re: The White Bear Problem

I doubt the altitude plays much of a role for me. I felt a lot better when I graduated and went back to Colorado (higher altitude than Utah). There are some confounding variables for sure, like exercising more, having a girlfriend, and finding a treatment that actually works reasonably well (folate...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

Pretty much the same as it has been for singles all along; talk about how valuable the singles are, and how none of us is meant to be alone, but then that reminder is strangely absent when a single member dies, still alone. And of course, the "value" of the adult singles isn't seen on Sunday mornin...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

Interesting... The D&C verse Pres Nelson cited to show that women's divine role is to have kiddos was originally meant in reference to plural wives.

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

Yes, I was willing someone to please gently tell Pres Eyring to close his mouth so he wouldn't look so frightening.

Every time I saw Uchtdorf, he had a somewhat forced-looking smile. Some people just smile in public like that, though, so I may have been reading into that a bit.

Re: New First Presidency of the church

:lol: We need to get a thread started on that question and answer session they had with the press. It's full of :shock: :crazy: :shock: moments that mostly sap my enthusiasm. Man, that was something, wasn't it!? I felt like Pres Nelson had no idea what any of the concerns were even about, and Pres ...

Re: New First Presidency of the church

I have even said jokingly that if DFU wanted to start his own church I'd be one of the first in line. I'd say it un-jokingly! I feel so much unconditional love from Uchtdorf when he speaks to us. Not so for me with Nelson or Oaks. I would readily follow the love. Was reading some Dalai Lama quotes ...

I'm stretching to find more pragmatic reasons for the change other than just, "we don't like Uckie because he's more liberal than we'd like."
Thank you. I need to assume these kinds of intentions.

My theory is they have had a hard time getting in touch with nibbler as 1st counselor in the first presidency...so that is holding it up.
My first action would be to reduce church to 2 hours. No one wants that. Trust me.
