Re: Would like to rely on prayer, but.....

I think there opts power in prayer - for those who believe there is.

Beyond that, I don’t know - but that is powerful to me.

Re: The Physical Sensations of the Spirit

I think we tend to describe it as something unique - or powerful - or particularly special - or uplifting - or some other form of special goodness.

You have the official answer.

My view: I hope we are with the one(s) we love, in some way that will be joy-filled for us. Beyond that, I honestly don’t care.

Re: Sad about possessions lost

It would devastate my wife. She isn’t tied to the possession, per se; she is tied to the memories they represent.

The mindset of the person (worthy vs. unworthy) is the key, and any framing that emphasizes baseline unworthiness is damaging. So, it isn't "the Atonem...

Re: Would like to rely on prayer, but.....

I try to keep a prayer in my heart - to live with a prayerful attitude. I don't "rely" on prayer, per se. I believe in prayers of thanks and supplication - not prayers of expectation.

Re: Fall General Conference 2021

I was working and missed conference this time, but my wife shared some things from a few talks that seemed really good.

I will share some things when I get a chance, but it might be a few days. The first half of this week is very busy.
