Re: Sad about possessions lost

SD, has your sadness improved overtime? Have any of your lost possessions returned since your last post?

I hope so.

Re: The Physical Sensations of the Spirit

For me it is the sensation to verbalize my feelings or thoughts a gospel principle or lesson. As a missionary, it was to tell the investigator how I felt about a particular topic being taught. Recently, it was to tell my children & daughters in law how proud I am of how they were raising their child...

Re: Sad about possessions lost

First of all SD, I am sorry for your loss. There are certain possessions that have meaning in your life. What role do possessions play in your life? There are certain possessions that are important in my life. They would include: My house. My retirement account (IRA) My photographs of family & frien...

Re: Eternal progression?

I like to do family history. The reason I like to do it is because I learn about the individual lives within my family. One of the things I've learned is many of them were very poor & had little or no education. I have seen immigration records where they had to sign their names & many did it with an...

Re: Eternal progression?

I want to bump this topic back up again. The reason is: I miss Brian's insights & this is a topic I've been thinking about lately. I have a tendency to compare myself with other people in the church (& other places). It is never a good idea to do that.) I feel like I come up short. Eternal Progressi...

Re: How Does the Atonement Help With Depression

First of all, I am not a mental health expert. My question would be: can a person be unhappy without being depressed? My answer is yes. These are different situations. I personally don't believe that application of the Atonement would help. This is an overview of what Depression is: https://www.who....

Re: Would like to rely on prayer, but.....

I have difficulty with prayer too. The conclusion I come up with is: God wants us to work through whatever issue or problem
we are faced with. That is the only conclusion I can come away with for me personally. I do know others who get a great
deal out of prayer. My Wife is one of them.

Re: Fall General Conference 2021

I find that I'm getting less & less from General Conference. We are facing a world wide pandemic & very little was said about it. The US just passed all other countries in the number of cases & deaths from this virus. (Say it with me, "We're number one".) In the mean time, I have members of my own w...

Re: I am moving -- New Ward Syndrome to deal with

How do you propose a person manages the transition with a new crop of priesthood leaders in a new ward? Lie low until they reach out to you? Be proactive and meet with the Bishop to lay it all out on the table (where I stand, what I'm willing to do, not willing to do, etcetera)? I would love to mov...

Re: How do you stay when you don't believe?

I used to give my opinions & beliefs during SS or PH with the idea that we need opposing views & ideas as a balance to what was being presented. Then I realized that it made some members very uncomfortable. So, I don't contribute anymore unless someone asks me a question, then I keep my answer in li...
