Re: The Mormon Word

I'm split on it. I love the thought of making a bigger distinction of us as a church that worships Christ. I'm all for moving us in that direction since I honestly don't think this church really does focus on Him enough sometimes. But, I also wasn't a fan of the tone of President Nelson's talk on th...

Why do you go?

Recently, I was doing a little bit of a personal evaluation on how I spend my time. Or, more specifically, what benefit do I get from spending my time the way I do. I go to work because I need money. I'm taking classes because I eventually want to move onto a career I actually enjoy. I do Jiu-Jitsu ...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

And to the lurkers - we know you're there and you're most welcome. we don't want to lose you either. I often lurk myself, I check the site several times per day, depending on the day, but I don't sign in every time. I'm one of those lurkers who does greatly appreciate the site. I rarely feel like I...

Re: He can, but will He?

I think this is one of the biggest thing's I've had problems with personally. For others, the idea of asking for help with something in prayer and leaving it in God's hands can be a comfort. But for me, it opens the doors to a massive amount of anxiety and self doubt. Hoping that I receive what I as...

Re: What happens when you are judged

I remember hearing a talk given by a seventy once where he stated that we would get to choose where we would spend eternity. Rather than it being a judgement passed sentencing you to a particular place, our judgement would probably look more like a conversation (I guess maybe similar to one you migh...

Re: Area devotional?

Elder Uchtdorf did one for Southern California around 10 years ago or so. The only thing I remember from it is the joke he made, saying that his wife told him that Californians should have no problem understanding his accent because we're used to our governor (Arnold Schwarzenegger at the time). :lol:

Re: President Nelson's Sunday Morning Talk

This was easily my favorite talk. I wish this was focused on more.

Re: Feeling left out

It definitely is a ward to ward thing. Some wards have welcomed me and even somehow knew my name without me having been there before. However, in my current ward, we've been there for 3 and a half years and we still get,"Oh hi! How long have you been in the ward?" It's always uncomfortable to answer...

Re: You Can't Handle the Truth!

My great great aunt (someone from around the WW2 era) had a son who did something horrific and then committed suicide. From the day that happened she immediately went into denial that she had even had a son. If someone brought him up to her she would immediately deny that she had a son by his name a...

Re: The Church's Obsession with "Worthiness Interviews"

... but I believe they have become something different entirely, morphing and growing like the Blob into something that is taking over the Church, the requirement of the Church itself being the gateway to our salvation rather than the Savior. It feels like everywhere I turn, the Church is the focus...
