How the h@ll do I respond to this?

So this would be comical, but it is my reality. This was the text I received from my Bishop after I had expressed some concern about visiting a friend on an official "Rescue"visit. Let me also add that without sounding arrogant, I really do visit with lots of people and feel like I have been trusted...

Re: Polygamy: A Very Specific Question

I am not a fan of polygamy on earth. I have an uncle who died at 50 in an accident. His wife refuses to date because she knows the church doesn't follow polygamy now. I find that incredibly sad that she has years to be alone because of her "belief/understanding" in that doctrine. I think whatever ha...

Re: The “First Discussion” With My Wife

I have thinking about this all day and really like how you are approaching things. When I look back on the last year the only part I would change is timing(our situation was a bit explosive because of callings) and the first words out of my mouth when I was told. We were both in leadership and I cou...

Re: The “First Discussion” With My Wife

I am the "wife" that my husband had to share his disaffection with about a year ago. It was a very shocking thing for me to hear, but I also knew something was up and was glad he finally felt like he could share it. He shared his beliefs in chunks, not all at once. To his surprise I actually agreed ...

Re: facebook and "the church" - a relation?

I know that Heavenly Father sees my actions and knows my heart (hopefully He is only looking on my good days ;) ). I know that my children see my actions, and that needs to be enough for me. :eh: I don't know how much more articulate I can be...you did a pretty good job the way I see it. Apply that...

Re: Mormon's Eat Their Own

Great article! Thanks for the link. Food for thought and actions. It reminded me of a meeting I was in. The discussion turned to how to help this family where some horrible wrongs were done by the father. We worried about the kids and wife and what actions we could do to help their situation, which ...

Re: Good-Bye, Dad

I never have known what I should say at times like this. My sister in law lost a baby and we were talking about stuff people say. She told me that she wished someone had just said,"I am so sorry, that just sucks". So sorry Ray, and that just sucks. I loved your post about him. I hope your trip goes ...

Re: The Ensign...

Some need to be rescued from many things such as unhealthy cultural values, guilt and unhappiness derived from unrealistic or imposed expectations, or from the hurt that comes from policies that are misapplied. I suppose they couldn't print that exactly. Although I believe it is spot on. I just had...

Re: The Ensign...

"Oversensitive" is probably a much better word than cynic. The article is in the Oct. 2013 Ensign, sorry....posting on the cell phone is frustrating and I tend to hurry. Our ward has used every minute of Ward Councils involving this new "Rescue" program. It has been an interesting place to be in wit...
