That's what I did. They have a 2 week free trial.

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

I haven't seen a thread on it, I'll have to look. I don't think blame is a useful concept in any death. My family is deeply affected by suicide, and no matter what, a family will always ask why, what could we have done differently, etc. I didn't feel like Believer was blaming family at all. I didn't...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

I saw this- lots of good things in it. I do agree though- they're avoiding a cause and talking about a symptom.

Have you watched "Believer"? It came out last week on HBO. I think Dan Reynolds did an excellent job for the most part.

Re: Pathways Degree Program being discontinued

Can't read through the thread because I'm on the run, but I believe WGU has your program. It's all online, work at your own pace, and cheap. I got my degree last year, it was a great school for me.

Re: Looking for like-hearted friends

Hello! I am so excited to officially join this community. I’ve been reading (okay, devouring) posts on here for a few months and I have been blown away by the love and wisdom in this community. I’m at a point in my journey where I feel a great desire to connect with like-minded (and “like-hearted”)...

Re: New ward, new you?

It really is a travesty that we all focus so much on what I call the so-called “visible“ sins. Such as WoW, Sunday activities, and in this case, tatoos. Right? Especially since the visible "sins" are often the least offensive to God, and the judging is far worse. From what I can understand. The one...

Re: New ward, new you?

and it's not like you can tell the bishop something and everyone in the ward will get it and abide by it. You'll have to set the boundaries with everyone individually. True, very true. I'm not a fan of the pop in visit. Even as a former HT i didn't like to do it. So the Sunday morning thing, of you...

Re: New ward, new you?

Getting tattoos is one of those few "mormon-standards" that does not keep you from getting a temple recommend. With that in mind, it's funny that people place such a huge emphasis on it. Maybe it's because the more apparent the sin, the easier it is to focus on it. It is funny. I could write a whol...

Re: New ward, new you?

Forgive my multiple posts as replies. I hate typing on my phone, but my computer isn't as handy to quote with. I try hard to assume the most charitable circumstances possible for people that interact with me. This is for my own personal sanity. I just assume that most people are busy, preoccupied, u...

Re: New ward, new you?

1) It will be hard to work your way in socially (at least it would be for me). True, but I actually don't have a need/desire for social activity within the church- that was beaten out of me in my last ward! Even in my in-between ward, I tended to sit by myself and didn't seek friendships/playdates/...
