Re: Giving a talk on Scout Sunday - help?

The adults occasionally had to wisper in the 16 and 17 year old "leaders" what to do and it was done - and the younger boys worshiped (most) of the older ones much more than they did most of the adults. You hit the nail on the head there. I agree sorry to the OP for stealing the thread. Maybe we sh...

Re: Marriage is taking a hit

It sounds like you are already doing a good job at this, but my biggest advice would be to keep respecting his beliefs. If my husband had not been so determined to take me out of the church with him we might have made it, but instead he felt the need to make me feel like everything I loved, and bas...

Re: Favorite Paintings

tmp_24539-IMG_20150205_2250111449523856.jpg Nearly anything from Bouguereau. Masterful doesn't describe his work. You see the essence of his subjects and his style is so profound. Very classic almost victorian. There's something about seeing the originals up close, I've seen Degas in books all over...

Re: Talk on Service

I agree. What a great subject to be able to speak on you have so many examples of service from the scriptures in the life of Christ. One of the things that appeals to me most about scouting is the opportunity to be able to do so much service, service projects, and be able to him a service oriented m...

Re: Dating "policy" in the family.

We had to vary the rules per the child like most everyone else said. Some kids aren't interested some are too interested. Be open and blunt if you need to, but communicate a lot . Getting them to communicate is another story, but it sounds like your daughter has a good head on her shoulders. I respe...

Re: Marriage troubles

So clearly I'm not going to get the help I'm looking for from this forum. I posted this hoping to get some help to save our marriage. Instead, I'm getting a whole bunch of people trying to convince me of the lie that divorce is okay. I can tell you I'm certainly not going to go to a therapist if th...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

There were plenty of people that had left activity and were not living the law of chastity that were never disciplined because they weren't interested in repentance and weren't making a splash about being mormon and immoral. Small point. Good point as well, I wonder if some people get to the point ...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

I read through all of your comments since my last, with varying emotions and thoughts. Thank you all for the input. My heart aches over the possibility of his ex'ing. I have come ti the feeling that if he is, i will reserve quick judgement. Nothing usually ends well from rash decisions and assumptio...

Re: Giving a talk on Scout Sunday - help?

And why don't we have Girl Scouts in the church? Do you want the Sunday School answer, or my blunt 1 word answer: "sexism" Lol at first, then yeah, I've thought that myself. Because BSA creates self sufficient men who are conformists. GSA creates lesbians who self-perform abortions. This is nearly ...
