Do any of you drink coffee?

These things can become problems only if one is drinking an inordinate amount of coffee per day and/or predisposed to heartburn. Withdrawal causes a headache for maybe a couple days. I'm not sure if you're still trying to argue that coffee is bad in general or just bad for sambee. Compared to soda, ...

Pinpointing the start of faith issues

I remember my wife and I were heavily invested in helping her sister and her daughter find their way back into the church. We had so many successes with them. Eventually my sil started praying and watching conference talk...

Re: Do any of you drink coffee?

Essays get a Little More Visibility

Quick follow up: essays were mentioned in the midst of a typically conservative stake conference last Sunday with the exact web address given out and with mention of what the topics were. I guess I'm no prophet :)
