Re: Finding Eternal Truths in Classic Literature: A Conversation with Author S. Michael Wilcox

I need to go to bed, but I am so excited to read this interview tomorrow. I have half-joked over the past couple of decades that I have two quad combinations: the "standard works" and my copy of LotR and The Hobbit. And that I would be hard-pressed to say which is more dear to me. More recently (7 y...

Re: Your Answer May Come Right Away...

Roy, I do not understand the pain you must feel from that loss. And what I am about to say is not meant to try to compare my experiences with yours. But I want to clarify that I do not always feel these nudges. When I do, they are not always related to what I am wanting or asking for. If you had ask...

Re: BoM Geography Theories (GT)

On my latest reading of the BoM, I had a thought about this. It indicates that after wandering around the desert near Jerusalem for a while, the whole group heads more or less due east for eight years. If you assume they walked an average of 6 hours a day, walking east on the Sinai Peninsula would t...

God be with you till we hit the slopes

Important context for this story: I live in Denver, CO. Not in Utah. I intended to go skiing this past Thursday. A big winter storm made the pass I needed to go over unsafe for my little sedan. I woke up that morning, prayed and told Heavenly Father that I really wanted the pass to be clear. If it w...

Re: Your Answer May Come Right Away...

Kipper - I feel the same way about the phrase "endure to the end." I apologize that this went a little long. I tried to keep it on point (and cut out several more distracting tangents then are still here). I hope that my intent to relate comes across. Before I explain my comparison to your feelings,...

Re: Old Wounds

Beach, I wasn't emotionally impacted by the POX or its reversal as many others here. But I do relate to the feeling that you don't belong and there is no one who really understands. In my life, my mom, my dad, and one of my closest friends have all gone through a faith transition. Each one has a dif...

Re: Garments and body image

I am digging up an old thread mostly because I have thoughts I want to share and want to get other's insights on that are related. I will also admit, I only read bits and pieces, not the entire thread. My dad has told me how much all women hate garments because they were designed by men with no rega...

Re: General Conference Thread

I'm very glad President Nelson told people not to shout about the temple announcements. As exciting as it is, I feel bad for the people who are excited about a temple that doesn't get a shout. And it's just not the right time or place.

That said, I think Budapest, Hungary is super exciting.

Re: General Conference Thread

Elder Bednar is doing a really good job of not treating discussion of the temple with fear and secrecy. I really love this.

Re: General Conference Thread

I have loved Elder Gong since he was called. This talk was special because he quoted "Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd" which is a song my grandma loved.
