Hi... my name is flower!

I have a new name, sort of. :D Most of you all called me flower anyways. I changed it because I finally managed to launch a new business that has been in the works for years. The company name and it's domain name are the same as my old user name here. I wanted to lessen the chances of any friends or...

Re: I Know the Scriptures are True

I just learned last week what this years Primary theme was and I was hoping the topic would come up. The problem is kids have a very b&w and literal view. Trying to explain differing shades of truth to a primary age child doesn't always go over well.

I will be following this thread.

Re: I'm officially a "ward project"

Oregon is a great place to live! I love Oregon! I have had my eye on this property for two years now. I have even sent letters and spoken to the owner. DH and I will run the trout pond business Mar-Oct, then travel the world during the rainy cold season. The home needs some updating, but the proper...

Re: I'm officially a "ward project"

Oh Flower, You may want to consider posting a for sale sign out in front of your house. Once your are an "Official" project like it appears you have been declaired, there is no turning back. Not a bad idea! I've spent the last 17 years trying to convince my husband we should move out of state. I ha...

Re: I'm officially a "ward project"

What's your plan for Church now? What place does it have in your life? I'm just curious. My kids attend most of the time, and my husband and I attend part time. (My DH doesn't have the issues I do, he just doesn't always like going) I currently don't have a calling. Until recently I thought I had 2...

I'm officially a "ward project"

Well... the ward mission leaders just showed up at my home unannounced and invited themselves right in. They wanted to know what they could do to help me and my family. I responded "We are fantastic! Is there anything we can do to help you?" They said that they were here for me and asked why they di...

Re: Words from my little girl...

This parent business is a tricky balancing act. We have needs too but our kids are only small for a short time. Good luck with the balancing act. Yes is is a balancing act. For one thing groups such as this help me to keep sane. (Hard to be a good mama when your not!) But on the other hand I spend ...

Words from my little girl...

Conversation with my 7 year old daughter today.... Me: When I was a kid there was no such thing as the internet. DD: Really? You were so lucky! Me: Lucky? Why? DD: Because your mom probably had lots more time to play with you. Forgive me if you don't see me hanging around the forum quite as much in ...

2011 will Rock!

Thank you all for helping make 2010 much better than it may have otherwise been. Just knowing you are here and all really exist has helped me immensely as I have struggled with my faith. It can be a lonely journey when all your friends and family are hardcore, devoted TBMs. I can't thank you all eno...

Re: LDS and gay - SL Trib article

Wouldn't it be great if as a gay LDS you felt like you could still have a place in the church? I am reminded of something that I read in a letter written to BKP from the father of a gay son... I never thought I would say this, but as a father given the choice between (a) my son's suicide, (b) his co...
