Re: The Sad Truth About Bullying

SD What a horrible experience your daughter had! I am impressed by the changes you made in your lives to address the situation. I'm glad things worked out so well and hope for the best as your lives continue to unfold. When DS2 and DS3 were in scouts, a couple of high power families moved into our w...

Re: No yoga pants at girl's camp

Seems like I have been writing an awful lot lately, maybe too much. But this thread caught my eye and I didn't see my take on the subject represented. Maybe by one other comment. Good thing these posts are anonymous. If anybody ever calls me on my identity, I reserve the right to deny, deny, deny. B...

Re: The Sad Truth About Bullying

I read this thread, or as much as I could stand, and tears came to my eyes. Then I wept, sorry for the victims in the thread, and sorry for my siblings and children for the things they endured as victims of bullying. They say that often when you have tears, it is not necessarily always the spirit, o...

Re: Not angry, just done - fMh polygamy post

As a newbie to the forum, I am impressed by the amount of anguish and pain accompanying threads and discussions of polygamy. I am staggered by the depth and breadth of feeling. I think there are two reasons for my ignorance of this. First, as a man, I believe I have a "privileged class" bias. I am j...

Re: Temple Covenants Questions

Nibbler, thanks for the thread. Joni nailed the essence of my comment, though regarding a different part of the endowment, and she made some very good points I hadn't considered about who should be held accountable for what wording, and whether some temple work needed to be redone! I do have to say,...

Temple Covenants Questions

I've been perusing a lot of the threads about the covenants in the temple, and have been very interested to see the perspectives on what we committed to and what the circumstances of our commitment were. Personally, my own endowment was a traumatic event that I was not prepared for. Nevertheless, I ...

Re: Teacher Correlation Meeting

So, what are we saying about these new teacher councils? Ever since the Gospel Doctrine Manual forbade bringing in outside material, I have found Sunday School to be my least liked hour of the block. I used to substitute teach the class not infrequently, and I tried to bring the subject matter down ...

Re: Richard Bushman saying it aloud

This discussion gives a good example of what cuts pretty much to the heart of some of my quandary mentioned in my introduction. Sounds like there is a lot of paradigm shifting going on by a lot of you, which I experience as well. It is good to see how you all handle it, and I hope to learn from you....

Re: Hello

Thank you for your welcome and many kind words. I hope to be able to contribute something more than just a lot of questions. I have navigated some challenges successfully, but still have some issues with things that are disturbing and hard to accept. I want to see what you think, but don't want to u...

Hello

Thanks for adding me to the group. I have been lurking about for awhile. I have appreciated many of your comments, and the loving and reasonable ways that you have presented them. I don't have a specific desire to leave the Church, and yet I see many of the foundations of my primitive faith under at...
