Deceived

I have struggled of late with a faith crisis that I think was initially spurred by being treated poorly by ward members. That is no longer a significant part of my faith crisis, it is so much more complex than that. Anyway, the other day as I was driving home from work, I had a very distinct thought...

Re: Gender Roles in Primary

Thank you for the advice. I think it is wise to just walk away. This topic seems to have truly made people defend the status quo. As an interesting observation to this conversation (several people were involved) all of those defending the song/Proclamation to the Family grew up in traditional homes ...

Re: Gender Roles in Primary

I shared my feelings about not liking this song with a ward member. Big mistake. In response she sent me this: "Gender is important. Here is another quote from LDS.org. "Because Satan “seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself” (2 Nephi 2:27), he and his followers try to lead us away...

Re: Utah

I live in a Utah and it is difficult here. It's like you are given 2 options: all in or all out. If the Bishop asks you to speak in Church, just say NO! Go to church when you want, don't go when you don't want. They'll figure it out eventually. There are lots of other churches in Utah. Just be caref...

Re: Forgiving(?) for past sins

I was raised in the Church, but after a difficult divorce of my parents, I left the Church from the age 16 to about the age 22. During that time I had a long term boyfriend,about 3 years, and we had a sexual relationship. After that relationship ended, I had several other relationships and partners....

Bishop wants to talk to me

I am in the middle of a faith crisis, and as such told the Primary President I didn't feel I could continue to serve in the Presidency. I told her that my testimony is struggling and didn't feel right teaching the children things I don't believe in right now. I knew it'd get to Bishop quickly, but i...

Re: What would you like to hear addressed in General Confere

I would like to hear that the 3 hour block is no longer 3 hours. It's too long, and it's always been too long. I would like them to say that Sunday School and the other auxiliaries are optional. I treat them as optional, but many don't because of guilt.

My Ward is Depressed...

I moved in my ward about 8 years ago, and at the time everyone was talking about how one ward had been "dissolved" in our stake and ward boundaries had been realigned. (We often don't hear about dissolving wards, do we? I hadn't until I moved in!) It had happened 2 years prior to our moving in.... t...

New Temple Movie?

Has anyone else heard that there is a new movie in the Temple? The Facebook group Overheard @ the Pulpit posted it earlier today. They are encouraging everyone to go to the Temple to see it. If it's true, I might go just for curiosity sake. My TR doesn't expire for 6 more months...

Re: aura, spirits, unusual experiences

I often have dejavu. I wonder if it's a spiritual thing or not, because it doesn't seem to have any significance. I remember being a young child, maybe 6 or 7 years old and thinking to myself that I wasn't really experiencing this life, I was a grown adult woman who was looking back at past experien...
