Re: Letting Go

However, staying in the church will require me to live a double life, which I don't much care to do. On the surface I'd be a TBM, but secretly I wouldn't believe. Sustainability and boundaries are the buzzwords that I live by. Sustainability - What are the minimum outputs that I can expect from the...

Re: "It's Because You're Black" - June 2018 Ensign

Love, Love, Love that this is in the Ensign. I like that it subtly questions assumptions that church members may have about race. I agree with points made by both Dande and Curt. There are a number of LDS speakers that I feel are influential and impactful. I believe that their collective work is hel...

Re: "Follow the prophet, He knows the way..."

I believe that there is a developmentally appropriate time and place to share. For my younger children, I believe it is important to help them feel safe. We teach them about parents, teachers, police officers and other trusted adults in a support network that are there to help the child. There are e...

Re: Everybody Poops

Do certain former "poopy" actions of any Church (whether the Catholics, the Mormons, or the Scientologists) negate the Divine legitimacy of other actions we may happen to agree with? Because, frankly, I think they do. In life we must all wade through "poop". We must learn to discern the good from t...

Re: Aussie gov't investigates child worthiness interviews

Reading the article, I feel that both sides are being less than fully unbiased. For example, I do not think that church doctrine or policy is that M is next to murder in seriousness. I also believe that most bishops would just ask the law of chastity question and move on. I do believe that there was...

Re: How will you feel if your kids do not grow up active?

I just can't help but thinking, "What if..." Going through "what if" is a common response for people that are in mourning. Ultimately, I believe it is helpful to realize A) that you did the best you could with the available information at the time and B) no path is without risks. If you could go ba...

Re: Is Judas misunderstood?

* thought that the act might stir Jesus to action against the authorities. * thought that Jesus might free the Jews from the Romans ** Judas -> Judah -> Yehudah/Yehudi = Jew (a common name) ** Iscariot -> Sicarii (a revolutionary organization). * may have thought Jesus' capture would incite othera ...

Re: How will you feel if your kids do not grow up active?

DW sometimes says something about not wanting to "confuse" the children. I usually respond that if the opposite of confuse the children is to teach them only one way to believe and act and be then I vote for confusing the children. It truly breaks my heart, and no matter what anybody tells me, I bla...

Amy,
