Re: Complete This Sentence: Life Is too Short . . .

Life is too Short to put the opinions of what others think you should do/be over your own opinion of what you should do/be or are willing to do/be.

Re: Being honest with myself.

Perhaps learning and accepting for myself is exactly what Joseph Smith had in mind, but my skepticism profoundly isolates me in today's church of absolutes. i feel a progressive distancing by TBM family and friends as my words simply confuse them, that i should get back to simply accepting and beli...

Re: An Interesting Turn of Events

He sounds like a good man. He is a good man. It says so much and so little with just a few words. He is funny, at least as smart as I am, whimsical, compassionate, and a fantastic cook. He makes me have fun, reminds me to relax, and pulls me into the "Now" from either the past or the present. I lov...

Re: An Interesting Turn of Events

AmyJ, I'm so glad it turned out well and that hubby was supportive. I'm sure it was scary at the time and that it's a big relief. If you don't mind I'll share a summarized version of my conversation with my wife, about 3 years ago. It was date night and we were in the car and pretty much told her I...

Re: How will you feel if your kids do not grow up active?

It is certainly possible. But I do know that I could have done a better job of raising my kids as TBMs. It's just kind of hard to do when you're not one yourself. I don't like how they are living their lives right now, but I do have a good relationship with them. I just can't help but thinking, "Wh...

An Interesting Turn of Events

I told my husband the root cause of my faith transition and how I am not sure about the nature of God.There was lots of crying involved on my part. He gave me a blessing of comfort (much more pertinent this time). He listened thoughtfully, and was able to re-state back to me what I was telling him. ...

Re: Good things that happen at church

We made it to church today as a family. I sat in the Nursery with my daughter during Sunday School, but figured that I could attend Relief Society with my 20 month old cute extrovert daughter (the R.S. room is more child-proofed than the chapel, and several wannabe grandmas haven't seen my daughter ...

Re: When we talk of others...

I expect that my family is a project or at least very puzzling to the orthodox. I have mixed feelings about it, but humans are gonna human, and I can let them do what they are going to do and get on with my life, or I can fret about it and likely misinterpret everything anyways. Favorite example of ...
