Re: Correlation strikes again

And then all the great stuff that was left out I think in our practice we also need more imagination. This is not a very powerful example, but I think that young women may be in danger of learning passive helplessness on their road to adult membership and the temple. Young men are setting up chairs ...

Re: Correlation strikes again

Ensign I believe that misunderstandings regarding women’s roles arise when there is a disconnect between the doctrine and the practice of the doctrine. However, through continuing revelation from God to His prophets and to us through the Holy Ghost, we can continue to recognize and eliminate most m...

Re: Correlation strikes again

Ensign I may also have the opportunity in this life to be a wife—if not in this life, then certainly in the next. This role is who I am in relation to a chosen equal partner, a husband. Though we are not the same—since nobody has the combination of gifts and traits that I have or that he has—we use...

Correlation strikes again

I got the regular email this week about our upcoming RS lesson this Sunday. I was surprised that the lesson was from the Ensign and a FAIR Mormon presentation. https://www.lds.org/ensign/2016/08/being-a-woman-an-eternal-perspective?lang=eng I read it and very much felt like it was another sit down a...

Re: Don't Avoid the Bruises

I just know most people here are bruised and scarred in some way, and I wanted to tell each of you how much I admire you. This is why everyone here is so valuable to me as I continue to show up with the hope that it will get easier with time, because it isn't easy for you either. Thank you for post...

Re: Coping With Previous Sexual History of a Spouse

I picked this out of your previous statements. In fact, I believe at this point in our lives she is the purer of the two of us. She really is a Saint in every sense of the word. It could be that you are also mourning the idea that your wife is this perfect person. The pedestal you put her on has bee...

The Church has lobbyists?

Earlier this week I quoted the handbook about not using church lists for political purposes after several call to action emails were sent to a ward list about a LGBT bill. The handbook is very specific about who can decide a legislative bill is against church policy. Political and Civic Activity Whi...

Re: Need advice on blessing of the sick

I am rather late to the discussion, but I am very annoyed at this sort of thing. I have seen this happen before and the young man was so convinced by a priesthood holder that his blessing would heal him, that it was really hard for him and his family when it did not happen. "The use of medical scien...

Re: Face to Face Youth Meeting

I think this is a great opportunity to talk with your daughter about not having to agree with apostles about everything while still accepting them in their positions - that the foundation for that talk was laid well by the other stuff she observed. It was a great chance to talk to her about this. S...
