Re: Reddit

I do not use Reddit much other than for news and the like, but, with all things on the internet, much of it is what you look for. For instance, there is a pro-LDS subgroup (that held the AMA last week), and there is also an ex-mormon subgroup. That said it was only relatively recently that the pro-L...

Re: StayLDS Ask-Me-Anything on Reddit

When I went looking I had to kind of look twice. The link Bran posted only has the "pre" AMA comments. Too find the "real" thread, I had to type StayLDS in the search bar. (in my computer it was on the right side). Then, I ended up with two threads the old one and the new one. I hope helps people fi...

Re: Have you ever experienced this?

I have had this happen a couple of times. The most recent was when my boss basically told me that I wasn't needed.

Re: Sharing views at church

Thank you for the recommendations and the suggestions. Conversely, what I used to really appreciate were comments along these lines: - affirmation of the concepts being discussed - questions posed by those earnestly trying to understand (even if I couldn't answer them) - brevity " Long winded was ne...

Sharing views at church

I had an interesting experience at church on Sunday. Sitting in priesthood discussing the nature of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, a man gets up (I do not know him) and starts teaching us how to be saved like he was when he was 27. He went on for about 15 minutes. It was interesting to watch...

Re: When is a child really ready to go on a mission?

If I were to poll 100 people who knew me before my mission and asked them if they thought I was ready I would bet the large preponderance would say I was ready. Looking back on it, I am not so sure I was. That said, I think the mission was a good place for me. We used to quote on my mission "the chu...

Re: Christ Centered or Church Centered

Instead of a half thrown together primary activity once every few years, why not open our doors in the summer time for a VBS? I used to take my children to VBS at some churches when they were younger. The set up for those events was amazing. *I* enjoyed myself. One year stood out to me b/c the prog...

Re: Strange Results from Gospel Living

I just read my post and thought I sounded a little boastful and that was not my intent, so I wanted to clarify or try to. I am not saying anyone's family isn't as close as mine (we fight as hard as everyone else I have seen.) I am just stating why I believe my family is the way it is. Last week this...

Re: Strange Results from Gospel Living

Recently, I have thought about this alot as one of my close friends has family members that appear to be leaving the church. I come from a large family and using my understanding of what TBM means, we are all of the TBM variety. That said none of us have had callings higher than EQ president and we ...

Re: Do we have a "Serve where placed" model of service?

To answer the question of the thread title, IMO, yes. I really enjoyed reading this thread and I especially liked the thoughts about just having "responsibilities" and not "callings" and the comments about letting leadership know which callings we will do. As I read this, one of the things Nibbler s...
