Re: Education is a Comandment...

We can make decisions that blow-up spectacularly. We all have a few doozies. But hopefully we can own our decisions and our privilege of self-determination. Church leaders need to staff the church. Sometimes they will say what they need to say in order to do so. When DW was pregnant and called into...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

First off I need to say you all are amazing and you deserve to hear it from me. I read your replies weeks ago but I just can't quite figure myself out. I go back and forth from feeling lame and weak for allowing myself to be compelled, to a feeling of being taken advantage of my "reactivated" situat...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

Waking up this morning after a restless night I was able to feel some calm thanks to the words from you guys. I have feelings I can't quite turn into thoughts which can be expressed but often I read them here. Some smart people here or at least talented at putting together meaningful responses. Than...

Education is a Comandment...

"Education is a Comandment..." Except when the church has their own plans for you. https://blog.pathwaynewsroom.org/2018/04/general-authorities-education/?cid=FB_08-07-2019_BYUPW_SEPT19-Enroll_general-authorities-education&fbclid=IwAR3pvN_R2NJ3Iw6S6Y2nQdSNiZOK_pG1Suy2jNOTe6BSORh-JDmScsG8K44 This sho...

Exactly.

When the Sabbath becomes more important than people, it has lost its meaning. The same is true of the garment. It should serve us; we shouldn't be burdened by legalistic rules about its use. "Wear it throughout your life, and don't defile it," is good enough.

Re: Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

My gosh, the information I get here is so insightful, or maybe I'm so isolated that I just don't find reasonable input from anywhere else. The new posts this morning were especially helpful. And it's not that I am being changed by anyone's opinions I'm just able to see myself and my own thoughts cle...

Re: Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

All good comments, thank you. Interesting how the words every day and every night got in there, I have suffered from severe heat rashes due to sweat and garments sticking to my skin in the shop at work and I feel confused about not taking your shirt off in the yard. There are things I just would not...

Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

I apologize for bringing this up here again, I know this topic is discussed over and over and it's like asking what is the best oil to use in a motorcycle discussion group, it's heard all too often and there are as many view points as there are responses. But I'm at a critical point with this. I had...

Re: I need to come clean

...When or if we have another discussion with a different bishop it could be hard and it could cause us to leave. We will get there when/if it happens. Proceed with caution. I don't feel real confident in our bishop's understanding, I guess that's why I have been putting off having a talk. Doesn't ...

Missing Prayer in My Life

I haven't been able to pray sincerely for a couple years now. I can get started and get thru a prayer but it feels like I am not communicating with anybody and quite often indolent finish. Is my faith crisis affecting my prayers or is my lack of sincere prayer affecting my faith. Makes me think I do...
