Re: Finally Being Honest to Myself

Welcome. Faith is a journey. And is always under maintenance. It never hurts to be constantly evaluating your faith.

Re: Utah Area Presidency asks members to wear masks

I think this is a good move by the AP. I wish the church would encourage this at least more regionally. (U.S., Mex, Canada). What I find absolutely tragic however is seeing fellow members reaction to this. I know some who are now accusing the church as part of being part of some kind of Liberal cons...

Re: What brings you joy?

My list is a lot similar to yours. Except for training members. I noticed in the Ted Talk she mentioned we overlook joy. I believe this is very true. We are so concerned about what is directly in front of us, we inhibit our ability to see the big picture. Reminds me of a scene from Moneyball. https:...

Re: Missionary Work in light of the Pandemic

Most of them are just in their apartments and conducting work via Zoom. Also I believe indexing has been encouraged to pass time. The sister missionaries in my area contacting me from their place. They are permitted to go out to work out as well as going to get food.

Re: How are you handling the chaos?

I have been working from home while finishing my online degree and being cooped up with my husband and my 2 daughters (10.5 and 3.75 years old) in our very small house. I have also started job hunting for a better position. Coping Strategies: A) Be Out In Nature - I take my girls for a stroll/walk/...

Re: Challenging discussion

It's always good to constantly be evaluating your faith; as well as being comfortable with being open about it. No one is perfect, and I think this applies to our personal faith as well. It's always a journey. And indeed a very personal journey. Only Christ knows truly what's in your heart. Faith is...

How are you handling the chaos?

It's been difficult for me. My mental health has been on the decline this Summer. I was looking forward to many things. Baseball, my midway point of Grad school and so on. But sadly that has gone to crap. It's a shame this virus has turned more into a Political game. The news is incredibly depressin...

Re: How will the Church change in light of the Covid Virus?

Requiring masks would be difficult because there are some of us that can't wear a mask. I know for myself I have been told wearing a mask can put me in greater danger due to my underlying asthma. I also would like to echo nibblers thoughts on Deacons/Priests following proper hygiene practices. It sc...
