Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

While I've got my complainy pants on, I really didn't like the way RMN was talking about grieving families needing a padded room to receive bad news. It was very much "we're better than them because we've got the plan of salvation." You would think a retired doctor would have more compassion than th...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

Sorry President Nelson, but if I was offered either diamonds + rubies or the Book of Mormon, I'd take the diamonds + rubies. After all, they give out the B of M for free. :lol: EDIT: I may have just yelled ARE YOU KIDDING ME when he told the story about reading the B of M leading to higher test scor...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference Sat. Morning

Sometimes a coincidence is just a coincidence.

If we're going to ascribe every coincidence to God, we're creating a pretty significant theological conundrum for ourselves. Although it does make for interesting stories in F&T meeting. :lol:

Oooh, if I only had a dollar for every humblebrag I've heard in testimony meeting...

Hey! He just used the word "modesty" correctly!

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference Sat. Morning

The opening prayer to this session was kind of weird. I gave up trying to follow it and just thumbed through the new IKEA catalog.

Youth choir sounds great.

Also, I was pleasantly surprised that the talk about social media didn't go where I thought it was gonna go.

Re: ear pierce for migraines

Wait, your wife doesn't have her ears pierced? GBH said only two extra holes per lady head so she'd still only be halfway there. :lol: I've thought about this piercing for my daughter, who does already have her ears pierced. I don't think that an uncanonized one-off statement by a prophet who is no ...

Re: How anonymous are you?

I use my real name here and around the Bloggernacle. I feel like it keeps me honest. My bishop did specifically say that FMH is not an anti-Mormon website. (I asked because that's what my husband always says about it.) I didn't mention StayLDS. But let's say I get called into the bishop's office and...

Re: You CAN use non-manual resource in teaching classes

Greg Prince is on the Board of Governors at Methodist Seminary in the D.C. area. He gave our Old Testament manual to one of the theologians there. The theologian said he had seen bad manuals before, but the LDS was the worst one he had ever seen. That's probably because there is little to no actual...

Re: Not paying tithing consequences?

I'm really concerned that your bishop pulled you out of class for a drive-by tithing settlement. That seems like a pretty major overstepping of boundaries to me. Also, the harder a leader pushes, the more it makes me feel like SLC just sees us commoners as dollar signs, not as children of God. Payin...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference Sat. Morning

You know what I realized? DHO is going to be prophet someday, and while I know he talks about other things besides SSM, for me and a lot of people that's what we'll remember him for. Wouldn't you rather be remembered for how uplifting your talks always are? I mean even if you oppose SSM, do you actu...
