Re: C-PTSD as a Cause for Faith Crisis

I will say I have had very loving leaders who up front recognize they haven't experienced what I have so they can't relate, but they love me and have faith things will work out. Those are the messages that help...not someone who things they can tell you what went wrong and why...but someone who jus...

Re: C-PTSD as a Cause for Faith Crisis

Heber, I do think you are explaining some of it. But I still have a hard time with some people (leaders in specific) are sometimes so lacking in empathy. I get that being a bishop is insanely hard and most members don't have enough empathy for the stresses of a bishop and his family. I would just as...

Re: General Women's Meeting - The new opening session

A win and we should accept it and stop harping over it. I am also glad that "someone" is hearing the complaints. BUT it is clear that agitation DOES nudge things even if we continually hear "Changes will and should ONLY come from on top." I do dislike those that just like to bash against the leaders...

Re: C-PTSD as a Cause for Faith Crisis

RagDoll - thanks for sharing your story (even though it pains me) and your findings. You might have something that explains quite a bit about a certain segment. I hope you are able to come to some sort of peace. I feel for you and your kids.

Re: I just agreed to talk in sacrament meeting

I will third the suggestion to add back "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing"

I noticed that "Softly and Tenderly" was sung by the Tab in conference. Another good one that my evangelical friends and I both like. Very basic on Christ's love for sinners.

Re: Letter to a CES Student

Nibbler - You and I will battle it out for bad humor attempts. I shoot for quantity, not quality. My foot stays clean since it is often in my mouth. In all my years as a member of the church I've felt that salvation was forever out of my reach more often than I've felt like salvation was something t...

Re: Letter to a CES Student

a bit esoteric. Adam often reads this way. I really enjoyed his, "Letters to a Young Mormon". I wish it was included in the seminary program. :) Maybe I could understand what he was saying because he dumbed it down for youthful readers (but heck - I do have a masters). but Like Heber mentioned, I t...

Re: Not angry, just done - fMh polygamy post

Wow. Polygamy is one of the items I still had not tried to take down off my shelf and digest it. I have made it through a few other items off the shelf that I didn't know I would be able to get through and still stay. With polygamy I am about at a place where the only way I can make it work is that ...

Re: Are the Givens and Bushman apologists?

I like that Ann. I just saw the following quote on another blog and I put it down in my favorites. As Bruce Hafen said in the Ensign , We need to develop the capacity to form judgments of our own about the value of ideas, opportunities, or people who may come into our lives. We won’t always have the...
