Re: The value of Sunday meetings

Thanks for all the great responses. I figured this was the right group. I do feel there is value in all the non-temple activities of the church, and that was what I needed to hear. There is a good chance that someone else in that class feels the same way that I do, but doesn't say anything out of re...

Re: DH starts to get it

I am sorry you are going through this. It is very hard to want to attend church when bad feelings exist. We should be going to church to uplift ourselves and others, and if that is not happening what is the point? But please DO NOT stop going because of other people. If this church brings you happin...

The value of Sunday meetings

Mom3 suggested more responses so I thought I might just throw out a post. I don't check in here very often because I don't really "fit" the group. In my heart I have left the LDS church, although my body sits through SS class most Sundays. We have a good teacher, and I am able to learn something new...

Re: Wait for an answer after you ask someone to do something

Also, when the announcement first came out that members were going to be cleaning the buildings I thought it was a good idea. I think it helps people gain more respect for the building and its care. I read a lot of people saying that their buildings are not as clean. I have not found that to be the ...

Re: Wait for an answer after you ask someone to do something

It actually did have a good effect....but it took 10 years. My son, now 25, had been working for his company for a year on a part time basis. He wanted full time as he wanted to marry his girlfriend and didn't feel he could do that without steady employment. DS found another job, offering more money...

He made the goal to be the most ineffective TQP there ever had been in that ward. And he accomplished that goal very well.

Re: Am I Kidding Myself?

I've been out to my BP for a couple years and have not really had any problem so far. I participate at whatever level I care to, and no one says anything. I am a woman though, and don't have the priesthood responsibilities hanging over me. My husband runs interference for me too, although I always t...

Re: Wait for an answer after you ask someone to do something

Waiting for an answer is also a tool of negotiation. A really good tool. When my son was 15, the BP called him to be president of the Teacher's quorum. My son did not want to be president in any way. He didn't even want to be there, let alone lead. So he said to the BP that he didn't want to do it. ...

Re: Time Away This Week: My Dad Is Dying

Ray, I am sorry for your loss. This is a difficult time for anyone. Please allow your dad to make his own decision on eating and drinking. When the body is letting go it "knows" what it needs. If the body does not need the nutrition, it can cause swelling in tissues and discomfort to the person. As ...
