Re: Cognitive Dissonance in Primary

Nothing much to add other than a funny coffee thing. My daughter told me in high school that basically ALL the early morning seminary kids developed a post-seminary coffee habit to cope with the lack of sleep, which I found both funny and sad, but mostly funny. My caffeine habit was developed origi...

Study D&C

Since we have been studying D&C this year DW and I read each night and currently reading thru section 85 I am struck by how much of it is serious warnings about apostasy, straying, denying what you once had etc. We follow along with the Institute student manual for lots of prophetic insight which al...

Re: General Conference April 2021 - Discussion Thread

I was just called along with DW to teach 11 year olds in Primary. Sister Jones's talk was good for me, mostly. I usually tune her out but I picked up some useful points. Seems like she got that that perpetual grin under control.

Prophets Superseding and Contradictions

I'm pretty sure that there was a discussion and explanation in one of these forums awhile back about prophets old and new who, over time, contradicted each other over important doctrine. Reason I am bringing this up is during out Zoom "worship service" couple weeks ago it was mentioned that prophets...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

Thanks for all the help and input from this group. I think as I am not at church regularly my questions and oppositions to what I see and hear are minimized. There is not as much I feel I need help with but it will certainly return. Even so, I have some current topics I need help on. I'll work out h...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

We will welcome you back no questions asked. Therein is the problem I have with the church. When you can ask me about and acknowledge my problem and offer reconciliation we can talk. If you want to ignore my issue and disregard my feelings then my trust continues at the cautious level. Sorry, thinki...

Missing Prayer in My Life

The title could just as well be Does Prayer Help. I haven't had a good prayer in a couple years. I feel like I should talk to my bishop but I don't know where to start. There is a root cause but it's buried so deep it would be hard to dig out and present to someone. I have lost faith in my leaders i...

Re: Starved for Connections

Sometimes I enjoy church on Sunday's. I listen to people discuss or teach gospel principals and I'm impressed with the depth of knowledge and can feel what I percive to be spiritual witness. At those times I aknowledge it to myself. Sometimes I look around at people and compare with the secular worl...
