Re: "Saving" Ordinances

Thank you all for the thoughtful responses. Having read through them and had time to reflect, I've calmed down about this issue considerably. I'm a major lurker here so I've appreciated your comments on several threads. I'm struggling right now to see myself in the church in the future but I remind ...

"Saving" Ordinances

Hey, Stay LDS community. Forgive me. I'm about to go into a long ramble. I haven't logged in much since I created my account this year but I'm a frequent lurker. To keep things simple, I'm in my mid-twenties and I'm trying to figure out if the church is for me. I love this church--it's my spiritual ...

Surviving Easter

Today has been a surprisingly painful day. I've been so overwhelmed with work and school I didn't see it coming until this holiday sprung up on me. Basically, Easter was always my favorite holiday. One of the most spiritual experiences I ever had was also on Easter. However, this year, I find myself...

Re: Adversity and Sin

As i have struggled with some addiction problems, I can tell you how I feel. I have little or no doctrinal basis for my belief. It is just a feeling. I feel as though we are all saved regardless. One of the things I felt strongly as i tried to recover and failed is that it is okay. It is almost as ...

Re: What is it about Trek that rubs me the wrong way?

I liked Trek. Neither of my siblings chose to go but I'm glad I did. I'm a better person for it. It was a significant growing experience. For me personally, my first night was one of the most exhausting physical experiences of my life and helped me form appreciation for generations of people that ca...

Re: Because of Him

So watch it and make up your mind at that point whether or not to share it - for your own reasons and not for the reasons of someone else. I watched it and definitely agree that it's outside of the norm for LDS videos. When it started playing, I thought it was a commercial and had to rewind once I ...

Re: Because of Him

Is it bad that I'm avoiding watching this movie, even if it does have a great message? I had a friend on a mission send me a very generic message on facebook asking me if I would share it on facebook and telling me he hoped I could feel the "hastening of the work." I don't know why the "hastening" c...

Re: Mourning

Everyone, Thanks for all of your replies. They really did make me feel comforted. I'm very involved on campus and things have been hectic at the end of the semester, so unfortunately I haven't been able to respond the way I wanted to, but I just want to thank you all for your welcoming spirit. I've ...

Re: Mourning

Hello everyone,
These past two days have been really busy for me and I don't have much time right now to post, but I wanted to quickly drop in to say thank you for the encouragement and warmth. I read all of your responses and I'm touched. I'll be back to respond more in depth later.

Mourning

Hi all, I’m another newbie and a long-time lurker. For starters, I don’t think I fit the profile of most of the users I see on here. I’m a female student in my twenties. Not married. No kids. Trying to navigate the dating scene living in Utah when I don’t know where I stand as an LDS member or have ...
