Re: Feeling like an imposter, losing hope in the middle way

Putting on my best armchair psychiatrist hat... Acceptance is our greatest desire, rejection is our biggest fear. When a TBM goes to church they feel acceptance and belonging. When beefster goes to church there is muted rejection. There is the ever present fear of rejection and the belief that if t...

Probably not a great idea. :D :P

Instead, have them sing "Swallow the Prophet" whenever they sing about Jonah. :lol:

Ha ha! I'm highly tempted to do that! ;)

Re: Follow the Prophet: Alternate Verses

Thank you for your creative verses! That gave me a good laugh!

Do you think my kids' primary teachers will be mad at me if they start singing these in primary?!

Re: BCC - Worthiness vs. Boundary

I like that! What beautiful questions! I'm not sure how exactly temple recommend interviews and stuff would work, but I think this is very much the direction we need to go to become more god-like. It's a tough balance... I hate the judgemental attitudes our focus on worthiness facilitates (even the ...

Re: Request for quotes/ideas

My initial impression is that Jesus was the master at ministering to the marginalized. He has asked us to "feed his sheep". So true! Thanks, Roy! One of my favorite conference talks: https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2013/10/come-join-with-us?lang=eng Yes! Such a fabulous talk! I'm going to go...

Request for quotes/ideas

Hi friends! I need your help! I was asked to speak in stake conference on ministering to those on the fringes- lgbtq, inactive, any who don't feel like they fit the traditional Mormon mold. What ideas do you think are especially important for me to include? If you have quotes (especially from genera...

Re: Ideas for lesson? Help!

I think the essay would be a good way to frame either DJ's quotes or my comment, as well. Thanks for these. I was told to pick a topic, and pray for inspiration. I wanted to do the essay, not be controversial, but to be honest...that was in the Ensign and my son and I discussed it this week...he ha...

"Follow the prophet, He knows the way..."

How do you explain a prophet's role to your kids? My almost 7 year old greeted me after primary today singing "Follow the Prophet" and waving a homemade sign from her teacher, complete with a plastic straw stick. It has a picture of President Nelson and the words "Follow the Prophet." I was having v...
