Re: New First Presidency of the church

This has really disheartened me. President Uchtdorf was the only hope I had that people like me could be represented. The fact that he has been taken out shows me where their priorities are. I am just sad right now.

Re: The Upcoming YSA Face to Face

The more the leaders say, "Just trust us", the less I trust them unfortunately.

Dallin Oaks saying that if an answer to a prayer goes against what the leaders say than it is from a "different source" (Satan perhaps? I don't know what he specifically meant there) was particularly hurtful to me.

Re: This article broke my shelf

That is so interesting Dkormond. I will look into reading that book. I had been frustrated, stressed and extremely anxious throughout my time as a very active member. When I read these articles and other books, I realized that it could be that I'm not just weak, lazy, or uncaring. It could be that t...

Re: My TR Interview Soon

Thank you for the update Kipper. That seems to be a good answer to the garment question. I'm glad it worked out for you! Do you think the answer I want to give (i.e.: All of these questions seem like an invasion of privacy and something that is only between me and the Lord and the only reason I'm he...

Re: This article broke my shelf

mom3 You have been so kind, thank you for responding. I actually do meditate but I only average about once a week. I know that it is something you need to do consistently to get any benefit so I do want to try to do it more often. I am seeing a counselor that really has helped me over the past coupl...

Re: This article broke my shelf

Dande, my husband pretty much knows everything. He has actually been less understanding then I thought he would be. I think that is why I feel so trapped. I am trying to do the minimum I need to in order to get by but I know he wants much more from me. He is not happy with me right now and I feel ba...

Re: This article broke my shelf

Mom3, Thank you. I do know that we are not the only religion that puts pressure on it's members. I feel the temple ups the ante quite a bit but I definitely agree with you. You are right that it's not specific instances that have caused me to want to be done but the feeling of being trapped. I reali...

Re: This article broke my shelf

Dande, I do appreciate what you are saying. Just to clarify the bishops I was talking about are very good, kind men. I could tell when they were talking to me they were trying to follow a script. They even fumbled over the words. The looked awkward and I felt awkward. This is something they did beca...
