Re: Baptism on the horizon

Hi Startpoor, I am sorry for what you are going through right now! I was TBM and my hubby had his FC first. Sadly it took me awhile to come around but boy have I come around now. Fortunately I have had the support of siblings and my husband as we work through this together now. I must confess I was ...

Re: Church Press Conference on Religious Freedom / Non discr

Ray got here before I did :wave: . I do see one large hopeful positive out of this - Maybe/ I am praying mightily/that today's announcement will help families in Utah and Idaho to stop throwing their LGBT kids and family out. This is a huge crime against humanity in my mind and it breaks my heart t...

Re: John Dehlin & Mormon Stories....

I do find it frustrating that changes feel like tons of pressure make a fraction of an inch of change. Then many say "look how great our leaders are and all those incorrectly pushing for change are just going about things the wrong way". This is when it seems so obvious it was the pressure that cau...

John Dehlin & Mormon Stories....

Hi All, I am cleaning my house today and feeling thoughtful as I listened to a YouTube podcast of John Dehlin talking about Myths and Truths of the reasons faithful members leave Mormonism. Right after the podcast, I become aware of the LDS press conference so I then listen to that. I am now shaking...

Re: Newbie

Now I am struggling to not lose my marriage and family with all of this!! My wife remains with conviction, even though she struggles mightily with polygamy and even though Joseph Smith was in fact an adulterer!! She feels that she can longer come to me for a blessing even though I think I am just a...

Re: Part Tithe Payer Relinquishing Recommend

Hi Shawn, Boy if there is one thing I have learned this past year as I have been experiencing my "faith journey" is that many paradigms have been challenged and changed for the better. I love the way Steven Covey explains paradigms the best. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZUKn-Ngzko With that being...

Re: My story.......thanks to all for your great posts & comm

This is a good group of people here and I personally have learned a lot from them, from being able to distinguish the "Church" from the "gospel" to learning how better to show compassion and understand people who are different than me. I also like that people are generally positive here in spite of...

I think there will be pressures to "toe the party line" wherever you may be. For most active Mormons, the Church provides an important social network and for those living in the Mormon Belt it may be the ONLY social network (aside from family who is usually also Mormon). Since participating in this...
