Re: One year later and where I'm at

Think of the respect and genuine concern, love and sincerity you could show all the people you "rescue". I know I would love to work with you as a WML. Ours is a nightmare.

Thank you for this OP. I agree with so much of it.

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

Good story Mom3. Our SP is decent, but the rest could be Edward Scissorhands or Wolverine instead of swords. I know these are men trying to do the best they can with what they have. I am just baffled by some of their methods and why they are our leaders. Church should not have to be this difficult. ...

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

That is what I thought you would say. I keep running into people from my ward that you have to know from (another town), or at least their families and wonder what they were like 25 years ago. They seem to have married into the pharisaical families from here and are breeding more............... I th...

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

I have always been a woman who could speak her mind. I am not always heard, but in our church and definitely in the place I live, women come second. I had to get in leadership to see how true this is. So odd to have 3 women in a room with 12 men and feel like this is a representation of half the war...

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

It is difficult to tell two men who are "yes men", they don't need "yes men"...I have tried. Don't forget I am a woman and they "preside" over me. Sally has told the bishopric she is working through some stuff, just needs some time. Their response is love bombing. She been blunt. Sally isn't the onl...

Re: Where is the enjoyment in Ward socials?

Completely jealous you get to have Halloween parties. We must be more righteous this way....we do not celebrate "darkness and the devil". What are all of you thinking! My husband and I took it upon ourselves to start a neighborhood Trunk or Treat and invite all the ward for the last few years. Low k...

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

The Bishop is fairly new. The SP is a good man and would understand what I am saying. He seems not to want to interfere. He also only has my view, the Bishop would have a very different view. I also think that he would probably just talk to the Bishop and it would go in one ear and come out an entir...

Re: The General Conference Talk that Turned Me Back to Churc

I don't know that I will be out in the hall carrying banners, but I will be aware and present if the discussion needs clarifying. I will also be defending single sisters, and families with no children. We don't know everyone story and according to scripture - All are invited to partake of the Lord ...

Re: How the h@ll do I respond to this?

I have already been called into his office once for "questioning priesthood authority". I have told him I didn't feel comfortable sending missionaries to my non-member neighbors. He is putting me in my place as he sees it. I don't feel guilt anymore though. I let that go a few years ago. I am just t...

Re: I think my Bishop is starting to understand me.

That sounds like heaven. I have had good bishops before, how I miss them.
