Re: Following the Brethren

Funny, the one earring thing was brought up yesterday in RS, and I made the sister who brought it up cry when I pointed out the three earrings in my left ear and said that I don't think Heavenly Father cares much one way or the other. Full disclosure, she was crying because she thought she made me f...

Re: Possible Model of LDS Church Phases of Commitment

I really love this- although I do agree that there can be quite a bit of overlap. I am squarely in stage 3: You no longer felt excited about the mission of the church, serving in a calling, and no longer feel part of the community. The status symbols of our religion no longer hold the same allure. Y...

God, Jesus, the trinity- and who I'm in a relationship with

Some of this has been discussed in other threads- recently in the thread titled "god" in spiritual stuff- but I want to be a bit more specific: assuming you believe in the concept of God and Jesus as two separate beings, who do you feel you really have a relationship with, and why? Do your relations...

Re: What if I'm wrong?

Thanks all for taking the time to reply....it's good to get other perspectives as I chew on these things...Roy, love the fact that our doctrine allows for a lot of uncertainty- but man, I sure wish that was acknowledged more often! And NewLight, yeah, the parenting thing is partially what brought me...

The sentence that is going to show up on Facebook and other online places is:
Walking where (Jesus) walked is less important than walking AS he walked.
Haha Ray! I saw it on my fb feed this morning!

What if I'm wrong?

I've gotta give mom3 credit for this post- like so many of the rest of you, I'm on here a lot, and it's been a huge benefit to me- and I sometimes also wish there were more posts and comments. So here I am, and here's what I have to say: Do any of the rest of you worry that you've got it wrong? As I...

Re: How long to pay tithing before recommend

Been working through this same thing in my mind! I've decided that one payment (like DJ said, with the intent to continue), that's enough. Now I'm trying to work out the "intent to continue" part. I'm struggling to do this in the right spirit- in a spirit of sacrifice and gratitude rather than just ...

Re: Some Concerns

4) Our temple theology makes it clear that there is NOTHING about this life that is objectively available to determine who will be exalted and who won't be exalted, especially since we teach that the ordinances will be performed at some point for every person who has lived on the Earth. Everything ...

Re: 4-5 minutes of General Conference for primary aged kids?

Use the clip when president monson talks about setting the fire when he was a kid. I don't remember the point of the story, but it was very engaging, and really made the prophet seem relateable (is that a word?):)

Re: When is it scripture?

I've at least twice heard "For the Strength of Youth" referred to as scripture. Most recently I heard this in sacrament meeting. I got up and left. Of course this is in a stake that once based an entire stake standards night on the "no flip-flops to church challenge" (they seriously had the girls si...
