Re: Describe your level of introvertedness or extrovertednes

I come alive in certain circumstances, usually when I am teaching or speaking on a topic about which I feel passionately. It's the content that excites me to overcome my inclination to avoid people. Funny but true, I would bet people at church think I'm an extrovert because I am very vocal in Sunda...

Re: Tithing: a Costly Leap of Faith

Shawn, I just have a few observations that pop out to me from the quotes provided (and general experiences) but I'm not sure that you see it the same way. 1) The understanding and teaching of tithing has changed over time. 2) The current general understanding of most active members and local leader...

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

I think there is a cultural expectation that children fully active in the church is the most desirable result or end goal - the crown of motherhood as it were. I understand why this is set as a milestone marker, but I reject the underlying premise. One of the best paradigm shifts I got was from Dr. ...

Re: Spiritual Thought

This showed up in my facebook feed this morning. I really liked it and thought I'd share. “It seems that in the spiritual world, we do not really find something until we first lose it, ignore it, miss it, long for it, choose it, and personally find it again—but now on a new level. Three of the para...

Re: Poll: Mormon identity and its effect on emotional health

If you think of yourself as a Mormon, are there one or more identities you world rather have? If so, what? Culturally: Mormon, mom, Grandchild of 3 alcoholics, "Odd one out", quasi-hermit, humanist, oldest of 9 children (so matured early and fairly responsible), American, poor (aspiring to middle c...

Re: Pathways Degree Program being discontinued

It's a program where you pay for and attend 2 classes for 3 trimesters (1 General Life Skills class, 2 Book of Mormon classes, 1 English class, 1 Math class, and 1 class focused on the teachings as Jesus Christ), and then you can attend BYU-Idaho online for $69 per credit. This is crazy good pricing...

Re: Pathways Degree Program being discontinued

Hi Dande,
What I mean is I am the person they talk to when the user forgets their password or mis-types it, or forgets how to run a specific part of the software.

I am not nearly as tech-savy as my resume implies:)

Blessing from Husband

SAD/HILARIOUS MOMENT: In our pre-blessing conversation, my husband mentioned he thought I would make a great Institute teacher or director. While I can see where he is coming from, it just shows me that there is a large gap between where I am in my faith narrative and where he thinks I am in my fait...

Re: Pathways Degree Program being discontinued

Today I will work on following SD's and CS's advice and looking into what I want career-wise, and seeing what is available in terms of online degrees. I am planning to attend the Pathways class tonight. My husband and I talked about our options, and he understands about the choices we face. He gave ...
