Re: pointing out realities instead of giving "Primary answer

Momto11 – hang in there. You’re doing a good thing by commenting and giving heartfelt, true-to-yourself responses. My guess is that there are more people that appreciate your responses than you know. I hope you continue to participate and hold the teachers feet to the fire. It’s difficult for me to ...

Re: weird stuff you've heard that is in no way true

My daughter tells me that the church recently made an official statement saying that caffeine sodas were ok to drink-----not that we didn't drink them anyway, but I guess there has been so much misconception about them they finally made an official statement----anyone else hear about this? My bisho...

Re: Young Women's program

Next week I am supposed to create my own lesson (no manual) and have it be on spiritual self-reliance and faith. Ideas anyone? I'm kind of inclined to mention that faith does not equal the absence of doubt, but is what makes it possible to move forward in the face of doubt. But I'm afraid that coul...

Re: Revised LDS Hymnal

Apologies in advice for my soapbox... If the hymns are unmoving it's probably a combination of difficult-to-change factors. Unsupportive bishopric and music chairmen, accompanist apathy or boredom, accompanist lack of training or experience, or a disengaged congregation. However most hymns can be "g...

Re: getting help

Dear momto11, Perhaps you can make an appointment with your bishop / stake president and ask him to refer you to a licensed counselor. As was mentioned previously, few church leaders are qualified to be marriage counselors and I think leaders in some areas recognize that and often refer people to pr...

Re: weird stuff you've heard that is in no way true

Being an adoptee, I loved this - my blood literally turns into the same blood / genetics as my adopted family once I'm sealed. others: playing cards is evil, we were generals in the pre-earth life, and this is a new one where I live - if you can't go inside the temple, take your family there to phys...

Re: Please tell me this is a LIE ???

roadrunner, just for the sake of precision, women CAN be sealed to multiple men. After they die, they can be sealed to every husband they had in mortality - and it's done regularly. Ray, thank you for the clarification / correction. I'm glad you pointed it out and of course you are correct. I actua...

Re: Please tell me this is a LIE ???

i remember the wife of my stake president shocked me by saying, "there are going to be a lot of surprises up there..." i am convinced we have no clue as to what lies beyond. Love this quote and fully believe it... This may muddy the waters a little bit but it also may explain some things. Like was ...

Re: About to get a calling...can I accept?

Having some of the same concerns as you, I've adopted the approach of thinking that the church needs people who are willing to do their duty while at the same time not blindly following our leaders. I think I can be of more service to my family and ward members by serving in a leadership calling and...

Re: High Priests and Old Elders

In my ward we have several elders who just attend with the HP and I think few people know they are not HP. Depending on your ward and your bishop, your husband might be able to simply attend with the HP no questions asked. I realize that not everyone is the same, but I avoid HP meetings whenever I c...
