Re: Amulek

He would not have been the first wealthy and successful person that suddenly found their life to be missing something. I agree with Roy. And I think Alma is strengthened by Amulek's views. I like to view Amulek as being a reasonable and successful person, not needing to give up all things to go fol...

Re: No other success can compensate for failure in the home

This is what I am currently working on. Figuring out what I believe, and what is important in my life right now :thumbup: I honestly feel like that is what God wants us to do, or he would have been a lot more specific in the scriptures. Those that get inspired write books, and share their views...a...

Re: No other success can compensate for failure in the home

I was married in the temple. 4 children from that marriage. 23 years of marriage. Circumstances as they were, the toxic home situation was not good to keep the marriage together. My ex-wife filed divorce papers against me. She was mentally unstable. I'm remarried, my wife has 4 kids. Between us we h...

Folding laundry is my personal favorite.
Doing the dishes is mine. Achieves several purposes, doesn't require brainpower, easy, and it is always there.

Re: SP - Bragging

There are good examples in the church of good leadership. I like how you notice this...call it out...and share it. It's good to stay balanced and notice the good and the bad in the church. I have not necessarily found people in the church to be so amazing that there is a difference between mormons a...

Re: Balanced Work Efforts

I usually score ENFJ. Strong N as well. For me, moving helps reduce anxiety. I am sometimes not good at it. But trying to stay balanced is an effort. Work, but not overwork. Do good, but accept yourself as you are and your efforts. Relax, but don't get so lazy you do nothing. It seems there is a ten...

Re: Sunday and Signs/Non Signs

I wish I had written down what she said, because I could have said it word for word. When it was my turn, I paraphrased Peter "Where else would I go?" and shared that I was there because I believe there are teachings and experiences there for me still. it's kinda cool when you get that sense from p...

Re: Symbolism in the temple vs. baptism

It does seem interesting to me how much we glob onto being so sure about having the one correct way to do things and try to draw so much meaning to one specific way as if God only accepts it can be done one way. We proof text so much of what we do by using our current view of scripture. Then we chan...

Re: An Introduction...

Welcome. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I like how you recognize the spirit in your life outside the church. That's good to embrace truth wherever you find it. It's good to see you making sense of it all and piecing it together for how it works for you. Glad you're here. I look forward to learnin...
