Re: TR interview and porn

Another aspect of the whole experience is that even if I did look at porn I would have answered the question yes because I answer the questions as I think they are supposed to be. I do the same thing, and I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that does that. Some of the questions I just don't agree...

Cures for Spiritual Burnout?

I'm wondering if anyone has had experiences similar to mine and if anyone has some pointers for me. For the last year or so I have been spiritually numb, and the best way I can describe it is that I feel burned out.

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I see it two ways. The social scientist half of me thinks there is no way that church leaders can prevent people from shortening the name of the church when it's so freaking long. The name "Mormons" has stuck for decades, and it is unlikely that will change. BUT If this name change is part of an eff...

My Lonely Search for God

I suppose I will start off my introduction by telling some of my story, if I can find the right words. I grew up LDS, was born and raised in Utah, attended BYU, served a mission, and married in the temple. I thought I had known God, and had understood the doctrine, and that it would always give me s...
