Re: A Raw, Searing, Beautiful Post about Depression and Fait

I love her honesty. For myself it is easy to look at others and wonder why they have it all together and I don't. I am fully aware that this isn't how life works, but my eyes and my head don't always seem to be in sync.

Re: For Those Who Wonder by D. Jeff Burton

This was the first thing I read when faced with my husband's FC. I really liked it. I haven't read it in over a year, but I felt assurance and relief that he wasn't the only one. I also had struggled with explanations of different doctrines and hadn't done enough research to "decide" for myself. I n...

Re: The Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad day

Really it is days like this that make me question if I can balance all of this. I feel like this every. single. week. Yesterday was our Stake Conference and I spent the morning in bed playing Candy Crush and eating treats with the kids. It felt much more meaningful. Wonder how I would explain that ...

Re: Gosh, where do I even start?

So why am I here, on this forum? Because I have a beautiful, compassionate, but very frightened wife and two beautiful, amazing but young children. And I know that my decisions don't just impact me. They impact our whole family. What does it mean to navigate a faith crisis while you are bound to pe...

Re: Looking for Support, Glad I found you

I want to start calling out un-loving and politically inappropriate comments made in Sunday School, or get that tattoo, or wear pants to church (all for the wrong reasons - as you can tell), or even to just move to a new place, so then there would be a reason for me to feel so marginalized Sit by m...

Re: When is a child really ready to go on a mission?

The other good thing is that if they are annoying and inconsiderate before they leave it makes it easier to see them go. I tried to remember this everyday when my same aged daughter left for college last fall. She is/was a super great kid who drove me crazy in the end. Similar issues with respectin...

Re: Copy of talk or list on how to fellowship

There is a great article I just read about this very thing. It was about a book that a non member wrote. I will try and find the link and edit my post. I am not super tech savy but I wouldn't mind having it as a reference. Found it. I really loved everything in this. Not everything is exactly about ...

Re: Has hastening the work become a gospel hobby?

Holy cow....are you in my ward? Not only has it been a huge topic of church conversation but the entire focus on Ward Council meetings for the last 6 months (maybe not last month, I was released). Yesterday we had 3 testimonies that were "assigned" and asked to speak on missionary work. I read that ...

Re: Missionaries coming over - survival tips?

The missionaries are using "Preach My Gospel" in our area and I believe in all areas. In a recent calling I ended up going on splits (so strange story, anyway)that is what they were using. Our area also has a ward quota that so many discussions are to be taught in homes. It doesn't matter if the dis...
