Re: You need to start responding

I'm also the type who drops by the forum at least once a day to read up on new posts, but whenever I go to make a post, I always chicken out. Very unusual for such a chatterbox like myself. I think this forum is the only one where I've been so quiet. But here, there we go, I'm responding, now. :)

Re: Really new to this.

Thank you, SilentDawning. It's definitely a decision I've been thinking a lot about, and I very much appreciate different perspectives, so thank you! :) If anything, the main reasons I'm still driving forward is the knowledge that a lot of the missions are now focusing more on service rather than st...

Re: Feeling defeated

Hello, welcome to the site! I am several weeks into my own FC, and I've stopped praying like I used to as a result; that doesn't mean I don't pray at all, it's just that it's a much more personal and private thing that I have adapted to fit the beliefs I have thought about and considered to be the t...

Re: Really new to this.

It's called "The Paper Magician." I'll state right now that I very much disliked the romance; didn't feel like it was built up well enough, and it felt like it was forced to fit the book into the typical fantasy trends going strong currently. Sort of read like a modern YA, really, although I believe...

Re: I'm starting to really begin to dislike the church

I respectfully disagree. The amount of individuals in your age group who feel the same way is staggering. The Church has no idea just how broad the disinterest is. They are still trying to stop the dam from leaking in the older groups. I have two daughters in your age bracket, both raised in very s...

Re: Really new to this.

That would be a very awesome heaven. :) I could definitely get behind that. On another note sort of pertaining to an update, I still have lots of highs and lows, but not nearly as bad as before. It's not really affecting my appetite anymore, at any rate. :) It helped that over the weekend I had anot...

Re: The Sad Truth About Bullying

In my old university wards, they started "enforcing" (as well as they could, anyway) the boundary lines, as in if you lived in this area, you went to this ward, and no ward hopping if you don't like it. They said they didn't like how the young single adults were "ward shopping" for the "best ward". ...

Re: Really new to this.

@Orson Thank you! The time thing is what I have always had problems with -- I am not a patient person, and I stress myself out when I can't see the clear picture and end goal. But it's working out. ...you will find some of the things that you need to start building a new house that will serve you mu...

Re: Really new to this.

I haven't read the stages of faith thread yet, but I definitely will make it my next reading. Thank you for the recommendation! I do have a very lovely home ward. It is filled with people who have their faults, as every church is, and a few (very few) have sadly allowed their sense of righteousness ...

Re: Really new to this.

@DarkJedi I really love the building analogy. The demolished stage is certainly what it feels like. But there still seems to be some foundation there in my building, and I'm glad that I found this forum in time to recognize it before turning away and burning a bridge or two. I've been reading on thi...
