Re: Trying to be brave: choosing to go less active

I am not just choosing to go less active for the lulz and attention from the WML, rather I am using this as the best way I know for now, to allow myself to take a few deep breaths, look around and analyze my situation and try to understand why i feel the way i do etc. this includes seeking help and ...

Re: Trying to be brave: choosing to go less active

Hi Grobert, Let me start off by saying that I do not have any answers. I have 2 children ages 11 and 9. We are fairly active in the LDS church (though I work most Sundays). DW is the "activity days" leader for DD and I am the bear den scout leader for DS. We also participate in other Christian chur...

Trying to be brave: choosing to go less active

I haven't been on here much; having gotten married to someone who is a lot like me has helped me not need as much emotional support, but now I've made some choices that will require some extra help. My wife and I just had our first child. Who's got some medical complications so he's been at the hosp...

Re: Christmas-free sacrament meeting today - yours better?

After being given a topic assignment that was focused on a phrase in the Sacrament prayer, I took it upon myself to connect it to the spirit of Christmas. We had a musical number and sang Christmas songs. The other speaker did mention Christmas a bit. Last week was our program which was filled to th...

Re: Does the Lord really care where my records are?

This has been a lot of very good advice. Thank you everyone. I think I will simply start out attending my assigned ward, explain the situation and then see what happens from there. I hope to help the Deaf in any way I can while still following the rules. FHEs will be hard for me. They already are, I...

Re: Does the Lord really care where my records are?

The lord may not but church leaders really seem to. ;) I am going to tell you what your Bishop is going to tell you when you get up here. While your intentions to go to the deaf branch are noble, they are going to want you to attend your first ward, and then have your records moved to the second wa...

Giving a talk on Sunday NOT about Christmas

I have been asked to speak at my YSA Ward this coming Sunday about " taking the Saviors Name upon us as we partake of the sacrament and what this means". I was hoping for more of a Christmas focused topic and as such as a bit disappointed (especially after my dad gave his disappointments about how t...

Re: My introduction

Thanks for your warm welcomes! Although I will not be daily active on here, I am already finding a home :) I served a mission in Houston Texas, using ASL. Due to the nature of the Deaf culture, I have become more blunt and have learned different view points of the church. I don't know much about tha...

Re: My Priesthood Lesson on Taylor Swift

As the father of a ten year old daughter, I love Taylor Swift. I think that is awesome that you made the lesson relevant and got everyone's attention and participation. I know that I would have stayed interested just to see how the lesson tied back to Taylor Swift. I didn't know how the celebrity w...
