Re: Relationship with God versus relationship with church

Wondering if anyone else has wrestled with building a relationship with God outside the church framework and what that journey looked like. My hope is that a true relationship with God will help me understand my place in the church. Absolutely! Recently I've been working on this and I'll probably b...

Re: Share the Good?

I love the idea of doing good in the world, but I hate how in the church doing good means spreading the gospel. Especially on social media. We spend so much of our time as a church focusing on missionary work, that we make little or no effort to do service. When so many other churches do. I wish we ...

Re: Overcoming the constant pursuit of fulfilment

I am struggling with this right now. What used to bring me joy or fullfillment in life, gave me disappointments or wore me out so I stopped doing them. Right now my main focus in life is facing my anxiety fears a little bit at a time because the more I face them, the easier they become. Plus failing...

Re: Sealing waiting period policy discontinued

I'm so happy about this change. It's been my dream to have a civil wedding, (even before my faith crisis) but I didn't feel like I could until now. Now couples can choose how many people they want to invite or none at all to their sealing. Instead, they can invite most of their friends and family to...

Re: "Forbes" Ranks BYU No. 1 as Best Value College in America

I found the quote that SD was talking about. It's in words of a prophet under "The Lord wants you to be educated" second paragraph https://www.lds.org/study/new-era/2007/09/words-of-the-prophet-seek-learning?lang=eng "Inaddition, your education will strengthen your service in the Church" Tying back ...

Re: Prophetic Flaws in Scripture

I love the different perspectives on this thread. For myself, I love words, they have great power so I like to look up their origins. The origin of the word perfect, actually means complete. In this sense, I can see that Jesus was perfect in that he completed the atonement. Thank you for sharing! I...
