Re: Are we the church of the WoW?

Re: Give the Church credit for making improvements.

The current counsel to Bishops is to recommend professional counseling when they learn of abuse. That can be through any reputable agency, not just LDS Family Services. The Bishop also can pay for some sessions through Fast Offerings. That is a major step forward, even though there is more that coul...

Re: Missing Prayer in My Life

If formal prayer doesn't work, try just "casting your heart upward or outward". Try just cataloging blessings and asking for help recognizing more of them - and just being able to be a better person. Try something like simply dedicating yourself to doing good things for self and others. In other wor...
