Re: Adultery and abortion, where do we stand?

Welcome to the site. I have to echo everyone's sentiment and add that it takes a huge amount of forgiveness and work to overcome what you guys have been through as a couple. I agree with anarcy21 as a side note, I've told my children what's in the past is passed. Guilt can be a great motivation to i...

Re: Do any of you drink coffee?

I grew up drinking coffee sporadically, and still drink herbal tea and non-alcoholic brews. The WoW is still one of those that is definitely a "up for your interpretation" mixed with how stringent your local leadership might be if they knew mixed with who cared what the neighbors think a the caveat ...

Re: Marriage is taking a hit

He must have reasons for not wanting to sign? Communication to find out where he stands and why he does or doesn't do what he does will help you both understand each other. I'm not implying that you're not communicating, but it sounds like there are reasons that you might not be aware of.

I've heard it said as both General Authorities and General Officers. Is there a difference? And when did GA become a title? There's got to be some history on it.

Re: What are your beliefs about the First Vision?

Personally, I think that 1 and 2 can easily be melded together. They could have physically been there and or spiritually been there or even percentages of the two. Even 1 2 and 3 could be melded a little. I don't think the immaterial nature of Spirit can be catagorized and defined by earthly means, ...

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...
