Re: You need to start responding

Thanks for this topic. I often feel like what I have to say is useless to people because I am not as eloquent as many of you, and I tend to focus on my experiences more that the broader view of the whole church. I talked to someone recently who related feelings that so closely matched my own and it ...

Re: I just don't get it

The ultra orthodox member is going to believe that all callings they are asked to do are coming directly from the lord. If that member experiences problems they don't immediately assume that the calling is simply a bad fit they beat themselves up because they view themselves as the problem. The cal...

Re: DH starts to get it

Thanks for the support. I am going to give him some time to see if he still wants to not go back to our ward. I think trying a different ward would be nice. We have visited another ward as part of DH's calling a few times recently and my kids have said they really liked it. The ward we visited was l...

DH starts to get it

I am trying to make a long story short, let’s see if my poor writing skills can keep up. My DH finally seemed to see some of the things at church that have been making life hard for me there for several years. He refused to go to church this week and has no intention, he says of going for a while. I...

Re: Selfishness, Dictatorship, Good Judgment?

This is a situation that my family was faced with a few years ago, but I was the one putting pressure on DH. My children also wanted to move. I felt like it would solve so many things all at once. Financially it was not a good idea. We decided we could not fix most of the things we did not like abou...

Re: Hi and thank heavens you are here

Twolamps, Thank you for posting about your experience, and for having the courage to get out of your destructive marriage. Abusive and controlling marriages in my experience is something the church leadership likes to pretend never happens. It is so devastating when no one believes you, and then the...

Re: Message from First Presidency

The best thing about this statement for me? My beautiful wife read it (she's actually the one who told me about it) and said something to the effect of, "After reading this I don't think you're an apostate...". Hooray! :clap: My DH said something similar to me. I am glad that they defined "apostate...

Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

I had to learn boundaries. Growing up, I was told that if someone from church asked me to do something, I had an obligation to do it. I was to treat the request as if God himself had asked. Some requests are inspired. Many are just desperately busy people hoping to delegate something Healthy bounda...

Re: Lots of PR statements

It could just be that he was good at addressing the topic and a lot of people in the congregation know he is a great guy. I just thought it strange that he identified his calling and said he was there on assignment from the SP at the start of his talk.

Joni - eek maybe just a fluke :shifty:

Lots of PR statements

I was curious about why there seems to be so many statements about recent events coming from people in the PR positions in the church and not from the actual leadership. Even in my ward today 2 members of the Stake presidency sat on the stand while the Stake director of PR gave the talk. He really w...
