Re: Potential predator in primary

Oh man! Every part of my body went tense reading this. I had a similar situation a few years ago with a couple serving in primary. We were actually fostering a family member at the time who was 3, and had been previously groomed and abused. I had made very clear requests with the primary, no gifts(n...

Re: Joseph Smith: Fallen prophet?

Interesting, I have not done much reading about the Church of Christ. That line of thinking seems to fit most with what my mom was saying. I have to admit the idea did certainly appeal to my logical brain, I mean what better way to keep what I like while being able to disregard what I don't? Lol, no...

Joseph Smith: Fallen prophet?

I was talking to my mom about Joseph Smith, his other marriages specifically, and she told me that when she was attending BYU , which would have been late 60's early 70's, she heard a rumor/ theory about Joseph Smith being a fallen prophet. Just curious if anyone knows anything about this? I haven't...

Re: The Church Purge of the Latter Days

Interesting, I have always had a totally different understanding of this last purge. I guess I always imagined it being more a purge of people's hearts. D&C 112:23 talks about the gross darkness of the mind, and later it talks about those who claim to know him and use his name but are corrupt. I alw...

Re: Tonight was hard

Thank you all for saying hello, Sometimes, one good example can overcome an entire ward of bad or indifferent examples. You used the word did . Am I reading too much in your statement? No, Minyan Man, you are not reading too much into this. My oldest brother passed away about 5 years ago. How he liv...

Re: Joke of the Day

Not a joke per se but I found it funny. Actual conversation with my 5 yr old 5yr old: mom, when is jesus coming? Me: I don't know, honey 5yr old: does the prophet know? Me: no, but it shouldn't matter we should always try to be kind. . ( kid tunes out) 5yr old: well, we should probably just Google i...

Re: Here’s a hypothetical: bishop’s son and pornography confession

I'm not sure how much this will help because I think a lot of good advice has been given already that I agree with. I'm sharing though because I think this something that my husband does so much better than me. We have a son entering his teen years, he spends a lot of time online. As far as I know h...

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. It also gives me hope whe...

Tonight was hard

Hi, I've been lurking for awhile too. I have to say I appreciate everyone's thoughts on here and it had done much to sustain me, but tonight was hard. I've been struggling for the last year. The funny thing is, I quit going to church when I was 17, then over the last 5 years my husband and I have wo...
