Re: Youth and Fan Fiction

Like pretty much everything, it depends on the specific story. Some is just an excuse for the sexual content - just like other genres. For some, the sexual content is essentially incidental and simple - just like other genres. In some, the content is hardcore pornographic, while in others it is gene...

Re: I hope Sacrament Meetings get better.

My only deep desire for Sacrament Meeting is that it be a worship service, not another Sunday School or PH/RS/YW/YM/Primary class.

As long as the talks are focused on Jesus and/or Heavenly Parent(s) in some real and meaningful way, I am happy.

Re: Restriction on Christmas Sacrament Meeting

The missionaries came over for dinner last night. Their spiritual message was to share a clip of the new Church Christmas video. It looks excellent. (in the original language, no subtitles, very realistic) They also mentioned that December 22nd is supposed to be strictly a Christmas worship service ...

Re: Restriction on Christmas Sacrament Meeting

There is no such counsel or directive from the Church itself. This is your Area Presidency being . . . unique.

Re: Raising kids lds when I don’t believe

It is up to you, but be ready for issues if you tell your Bishop you aren't fully believing. It might not happen, but it probably will at some point, given leadership roulette. There is no requirement to explain anything. If you want to do that, fine; if not, fine. You can accept callings or say no....

Re: My New Calling: Sunday School Lesson Recaps

We missed Sunday School throughout all of October, due to General and Stake Cnferences, so I covered the October lessons material today. First, we discussed 2Thessalonians 2:3-4 - the verses about a "falling away" happening before Jesus came again. We looked at it phrase by phrase. I stressed that t...

Re: How to tell my daughter

In the end, you need to do what you believe is best. I wish I had a clearer answer than that, but I don't. My youngest daughter is about to graduate from high school and now is inactive. I make my choices for myself, not for her. I support her choices for herself, not for me. I separate the two comp...
