Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

I'm glad to hear that your visit was reasonably successful. The church can be a great community resource. I am also a proponent of diversifying your social circle and reaching out socially to other groups as well.

Re: My Life Seems to Have a Plan

I'm sorry to hear about your job. I had a roommate in Salt Lake whose patriarchal blessing said that he should be a doctor. The trouble was, he had no interest in medicine. He went to medical school and didn't like it. He dropped out, and also lost his faith. I think there are a big distinction her...

Re: The Feeling Good Handbook

Self talk can either be a headwind or a tailwind. I do not think that it is 100% changeable, but even if it is only 10% changeable that might make a large difference for the individual.

Re: My Life Seems to Have a Plan

At this point I think it would be impossible for me to deny the existence of such events, and I might be willing to believe that there might be some overarching plan, perhaps a Divine plan. But still, I am actually quite unhappy with this plan and have never really been happy with it. I don't have ...

Re: My Life Seems to Have a Plan

My advice on making major life transitions is the same that has often been preached here at stayLDS. Go Slow and Don't burn bridges and Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. A career change can be similar. I would do my best to explore this new world of flying in addition to my current career...

Re: If God loves his daughters as much as his sons... LDS Daily

That's a perfectly valid conclusion for a person to reach for themselves but its validity can't be extended to cover all women. What of the women that haven't had that same fortune? What of the women that do feel inferior? "Well... I don't have a problem with it" doesn't serve as a very g...

Re: Purpose of mortal life

Watcher, I believe that you wish to offer support in the more traditional apologist or defender role. This is the approach taken by FARMS and FAIR. I believe that this approach has a place and can be helpful for some. We at StayLDS take a different approach. For example, what if you come to the conc...

If God loves his daughters as much as his sons... LDS Daily

Gospel Q&A: If God loves his daughters as much as He loves his sons why can't women hold the priesthood? https://www.ldsdaily.com/personal-lds-blog/gospel-qa-if-god-loves-his-daughters-as-much-as-his-sons-why-cant-women-hold-the-priesthood/ I guess apologists gonna defend and justify. Even so, I...
