Re: Should I feel guilty?

Interesting thread. I love that DatkJedi looked up the original context of that quote, and I love how it changed the meaning for me. I realized that I have been operating at least partially under the subconscious assumption that if my kids don't turn out to be good LDS then I have failed. Failure is...

Re: Teach them to walk in the light...

Anyway, thanks to some of my kids' "unique ingredients" I am definitely feeling a little out of control of the parenting recipe right now! :wtf: They are great kids t...

Re: Kirby on church authority

If you are going to the effort of believing in a loving God, what point is there in filtering his or her value of you through the minds of people who just might not have one that works any better than yours?
I love this. And have a problem with doing this to myself all the time :oops:

Re: New Youth Program

I am cautiously hopeful. Simple could be good. I like the idea of fostering our kids' self awareness and individual relationships with God as opposed to focusing on rewards. I will try this with my kids. I am sure, though, that the quality of church youth activities will largely continue to be depen...

Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

I am so thankful that this changed (dare I say it's about time!). My family is ecstatic. For some reason all I seem to be able to feel about it is a deep emptyness. I fear that all of these baby steps in a really positive direction have come a bit too late for me. At least I'm not feeling the crazy ...

But what they will remember the most is the parent that held to true values and made them feel loved
I hope so. The very basics are my religion right now. Love. That's what it all comes back to for me. And that's something I can do.

Thank you, Heber. Your thoughtful reply meant a lot.

Re: Teaching Achievement Days

That sounds amazing. Those girls are fortunate to have such a thoughtful board member :smile:

Good leaders make all the difference in that program.

Teach them to walk in the light...

I know that somewhere there was a post about raising kids in the church, but I had trouble figuring out how to attach myself to it, so this is going to end up being its own post... I had a dream the other night. One that left me feeling pretty raw and alone. I can't stop thinking about it. It's funn...
