Re: Bad trying to be good or good that does bad?

Coming from a Catholic upbringing, my understanding at a young age was that I needed to be good. I don't remember if I was taught that I was inherently bad or not, but I never felt that way. I always felt 'favored', like God knew me and would spare me. Even when I was semi agnostic I still felt like...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance in Primary

I read this thread with some glee. I'm not into coffee but as strange as it seems coming from a midwest catholic upbringing, I never acquired a taste for it. Beer on the otherhand! I echo the long line of alcoholics, and my need to keep within check. I think that is the point of the WoW, not to get ...

Re: Could faith promoting stories be dangerous?

Hi all, been lurking a bit as of late, it's been hard for me too find things and topics I'm interested in discussing. My first thought was along the lines of Paul h Dunn, I was serving a mission at the time he was exposed and I know it was hard thing for many of the missionaries especially a particu...

Re: Thoughts and Prayers During a Difficult Time

Conspiracy theories abound surrounding this pandemic, not citing any of your posts specifically, just an observation of talk I am hearing all over. In Southern California it is calm after the panic over tp, and the stores are back to stocked shelves mostly. Wondering what life will be like next year...

Re: Coping With Previous Sexual History of a Spouse

My gf has been completely open, forthcoming, and honest and I appreciate that. It must have been extremely difficult for her. We're in love, compatible, and believe we can share a future together so I can say I'd marry her. It sounds like you have a good communication established with your gf. I wo...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

Liked the story of the grandfather and grandson sharing the heart (paraphrasing of course). I like real-world stories. I know sometimes they are embellished a little but what isn't?

Re: Joel 2:28

Khadijah thanks for sharing. I too have had compelling dreams and they can shift my perspective and change the way I look at the world around me. As for the end of the world, I have believed for a long time that we are in the last days. Not the last days of the world specifically, as no one knows th...

Re: Change...

I've noticed as looked back, today life has been constant change. I thought after returning from a mission that I was on the enduring to the end portion and would be there for the remainder of my life. Spiritually I've noticed that I had many main faith evolution points/moments. Joining the church, ...

Re: Its been a while but have a question

It's an interesting time for sure. If I'm reading your question right you are concerned about your daughters thoughts, has (up until recently) she been going to church? And has there been no discussion or comments about you previous absence? Maintaining social distancing and trying not to group gath...

Re: Examples of visions then apostacy in the Bible?

I agree, my reply was tongue in cheek :) I had the same question when I first read about L&L. It seemed so cardboard, so 2 dimensional. As soon as they are walking away from the angel scolding them, them are murmuring again. I think of these details more in alegory now, as life lessons rather than h...
