Re: The big one: Being a woman in the temple.

I know I'm very late to this particular party and I hardly ever post here anymore, but I just had to say that I've loved reading this thread. It's always good to know that I'm not alone in the way I feel about the temple. It's okay to reduce or even eliminate things that feel like getting punched in...

You comfort me

I haven't been active on this board for quite a while, but I do read here occasionally. Tonight, as I was reading some of your posts and responses, I felt comforted. I'm so glad that you're all here helping one another through difficult things. I'm glad you've been here to help me through difficult ...

Re: Would you leave if you could?

I voted yes because that's what we are doing. Dh and I and our kids don't attend anymore. I was talking to DH last night and mentioned how I could probably attend occasionally and still be a member (just not an orthodox one) if it was just me to consider. However, like mackay is experiencing, my chi...

Re: If you no longer pay tithing -- reflect....

My mom was a big time believer that tithing is what keeps you temporally taken care of. She always paid tithing first, even when she didn't have enough to pay basic bills. We ate a lot of food from the bishop's storehouse growing up, but my mom never missed paying her tithing. So when I got married ...

Re: Not church related-need advice

May, if you're comfortable telling me, what state are you moving out of? Depending on what state you're currently resident in, there may be standard landlord-tenant legislation that would be in your favor. We're moving out of Utah. Glad it worked out for you - you have a lot on your plate right now...

Re: Not church related-need advice

Well, the pm company solved the dilemma for me. I asked them for options and they gave me 3. Find someone to move in by Dec 1st to finish the last month of the lease as well as sign a new 12 month lease, stay and pay, or move out now and forfeit our security deposit. We're taking option #3. I feel m...

Re: Not church related-need advice

Thanks for your thoughts. It's good to hear other peoples' experiences and opinions. SD- it sounds like you would be a great landlord! We had a wonderful one for almost 6 years at the place we lived previously. He personally owned and maintained the home. I think that makes a difference. He was very...

Not church related-need advice

We're in a bit of a pickle with our property management company. Our 12 month lease was up in the middle of August. We stayed month to month because DH was interviewing for management jobs in his company. New company buys our units. Tells everyone to either sign a new 12 month lease at higher rent o...

Re: Do you suffer from anxiety or depression?

I've had issues with depression off and on my whole life, but I didn't get to the point where I felt I couldn't handle it alone until after my 4th child was born. That's when it got scary. I was battling my usual postpartum depression, plus my shelf crashed and burned just a little over a month afte...

Re: The truth will set you free, but first it will tick you

I agree completely. So many instances in my life, not only religious, this has applied. When I first started learning new and surprising things about the church and church history I got very angry. That was kind of my first reaction. I think it's that way with a lot of things. But now I do feel more...
