Re: I Feel My Life is Over

I don't come on here as much as I used to, but I saw your post and knew I needed to read it. I've lost my religion too. I'm barely hanging on to some semblance of Christianity. I have no words of comfort for you, except to say that I understand at least some of what you are going through. Familial r...

Re: A Farewell & Thank You

Thanks for sharing University! This is definitely an emotional time of year. I thought of a quote i'd like to share with you. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the o...

Re: Dear well-meaning Elders.

Wow! This hit a little too close to home. You've inspired me to write my own letter, even though I haven't had any missionaries come by yet. Thank you for sharing. :clap:

Re: Conversation with Bishop

And this was his response. Hi dtrom, Thank you very much for your email! There are some wonderful ideas and thoughts for us to improve. Do you mind if I share these ideas with others? I will leave your name out if you would like for me to. Also, wanted to let you know that I felt impressed yesterday...

Re: Conversation with Bishop

Here is the email that I sent him. Hi Bishop, Thank you for the conversation on Sunday. You had asked me how you and your counselors could make people/me more welcome at church. I first wanted to state that I have never felt unwelcome at church, including while I have been in 2nd ward. I thought I w...

Re: Lampooning Home Teaching

I laughed out loud when I read it. It's very accurate. It's like one of those Onion articles that you read and you have to do a double-take to make sure it actually is an Onion article. It reminds me of an elder's quorum presidency member who gave me the evil eye when I told him that I was not going...

Re: Conversation with Bishop

What a wonderful conversation with your bishop. It really was. I saw it going a completely different direction and had already tried to plan for all variables. I didn't plan for that. Perhaps you were in some kind of spiritual flow with the Bishop at this time? Maybe, I think it might have to do wi...

I laughed out loud at this, but then I got a little disheartened. I enjoy that site when I'm in the right mood.

Conversation with Bishop

I went up to my Bishop yesterday at the end of sacrament meeting to talk to him. It was a weird church day where we only had sacrament, because there was a priesthood meeting at 8 in the morning, which I didn't go to. I'd never heard of this before. Anyway, I thought this would be the perfect opport...

Re: Mini rant to bishop

That sounds like an awful experience. I'm sorry that all is happening. I know what it's like to feel lonely at church even though there are literally hundreds of people there. It sucks. I am pretty confident that he will ask you to come and visit him in his office. If this is what you want, then you...
