Re: I Need Some Advice

I agree that CBT and DBT can be excellent approaches - to lots of things.

Re: Well, there went that plan.

Don't try to fit into the round holes. Make square ones within or around the round ones. :D

I know that is easier said than done, but it is doable.

Re: Pray to the Lord?

Lord is used interchangeably for Father and Son in lots of places.

I am 100% certain President Nelson meant the Father. Seriously, I think there is nothing to worry about with this.

Re: Well, there went that plan.

I am not saying you need to stay in the calling, but if they call you, and you accept, they get you - not someone they assume you are. Of course, I am not suggesting going full on doubter in the calling, but it can be a wonderful thing to have different views in councils. That actually is how it is ...

Thinking Outside the Box but Living Inside the Box

I had an interesting experience earlier this week at the elementary school where I currently am working. Something just hit me as an analogy that I want to share. I hope it makes sense, as I haven't had time to analyze it in-depth: I was walking past the Speech Therapy room and saw the therapist sit...

MANY young women love the current program and hope the new one is better.

Some young women don't like the current program and hope the new one is better.

What works for me doesn't work for a whole lot of other people.

Such is life.

Re: Ignorance was bliss

Fwiw, ignorance is never bliss in the fullest dictionary definition. It is comforting and laziness-inducing and easy and deflective and content, but it isn't utter joy or supreme happiness, imo.

Re: Suggested alternatives to McConkie's Mormon Doctrine?

Not sure a good source like that exists, especially since explaining Mormon doctrine is a bit like nailing Jello to a tree. A belief in on-going revelation makes solid doctrinal statements a bit tricky - but it helps us, because it means we don't have to accept current beliefs as eternal Truth creeds.
