Re: Weaving through other's misunderstandings....

I knew venting my feelings would be a good thing here. Thanks for the understanding remarks and validation. I appreciate that so much. For those of you interested, here is the blog link my hubby was given in an email from a friend - http://lemmonythings.com/2015/04/14/why-i-want-you-to-stay-a-letter...

Weaving through other's misunderstandings....

As I have worked through each day, week, month and even years of my own faith journey, I have kept it quietly personal as I know many of you have as well. I would not want to bring "faith crisis" to any of my friends or family members on purpose. I lived ignorantly bliss for many years and may have ...

Re: An introduction...

I like what Ray said, however, I will say that those of us who have been in the church for years have often times developed the "black and white" way of thinking because the church has "groomed" us this way. I, too, felt as you did and I have been through many paradigm shifts since all of this began...

Re: An introduction...

Hi White Rapids, I have read several of your posts. My brother "Newlight" mentioned you to me. Welcome to this forum. It is a wonderful place with so many kind and open people. Everyone here processing things in all different directions. Wouldn't it be nice if we could go to church and feel the same...

Re: Funny, small-town Utah

Sooooo Funny! Thanks for the laugh! :lol: :lol:

Re: Baptism on the horizon

Definitely do it – it's part of our LDS culture and is a great symbol of simply making a decision to follow in Christ's footsteps. All bishops who truly care want fathers to fill that role. I am Awakening's brother and went to the baptism for her twins – it was very nice and lacked the fear and ort...

Re: Introducing DW to some of the tough issues

Just finally reading this post. How is it going? I am the "wife" who was not the one starting this FC. My advice is SLOW too! Podcasts are good as well as things that really have happened coming from a prophet"s mouth! The letter written about the blacks in Cuba was big eye opener to me. I began to ...
