Re: Green tea

I'm quite the ignorant one on this topic (as of many topics to be honest :roll: ) but I think for the first time ever I pulled out good old section 89 and actually READ it... I had NO IDEA that caffeine isn't mentioned in it! lol.... boy do I feel duped. And who washes their bodies with Jack Daniels...

Re: How does God answer your prayers

This is a tough one... I guess for me, answers to my prayers usually happen in hindsight. I'll look back at a situation and realize "Hey! My prayer was answered, it might not have been what I wanted, but God knew what was best and gave me that, and who would have guessed... it worked" Usually thats ...

Re: How far outside the box, and stay LDS?

However, recently a lot of research has pointed out that there is little to no reliable evidence for anti-depressants having a measurable effect on reducing depression. Scientists never have known how they worked, and recently it was discovered that they are approximately as effective as a placebo ...

Re: Intolerance...Who's to blame

Well said Ray.. Mormons in many areas are truly HATED. I've heard and seen this in quite a few places. It saddens me, and I'm not sure who is to blame. Seems to me like the only ones to blame are ourselves (if you chose to place yourself in the Mormon category). I would much rather cast out the beam...

Re: Are Tattoos Taboos?

Very interesting... so then it is not necessarily a matter of scripture, but a matter of culture and personal preference over each person's own interpretation of scripture? (whoa, thats fully loaded, and hopefully can be deciphered.. lol) One of those things thats not right or wrong? Maybe I should ...

Re: Are Tattoos Taboos?

My husband and I were just talking about this not too long ago. He's not a member, and I guess I am. He currently has 5 tattoos, 1 of which I think is ridiculous (c'mon, a high school nickname with $100 bills.. :roll: ) the others are quite spiritual to him and more meaningful to him. Anyway.. he me...

Re: Ward Activities

I am not at all familiar with Bunco... I was invited to play once by a lovely group of ladies, and couldn't help but feel like I was just invited to go play Bridge. I'm not ready to make that step in my life, don't want to feel too old. :D Is this considered gambling at all? Can we have blackjack ni...

Re: What's on the Mind of Church Leaders? Simplify

This post got me thinking a little bit.. What do I really need right now from the Church, to enhance my overall Spirituality? The only thing that kept coming to mind was on the side of a "Comparing Christianity" course, or something of the like. Where all who attend are able to understand other deno...

Re: A few weeks back in

I too really like this post Sam. Its good to be able to sit back and reflect and your personal experiences and growth. I've chickened out of "outing" myself as a Mormon, or someone connected to the church, a few times recently. I've yet to go there. I'm in this same exact boat right along with you S...
