Re: Son doesn't want to pass the sacrament

Wow, it's funny how many of the young men in other wards are allowed to wear colored shirts to pass the Sacrament. The last 2 wards I was in, that was a big no no. My boys, ( who did not like to bless or pass the Sacrament) loved this rule. They just made sure they wore colored shirts every week and...

Re: Hey, Doc, it hurts when I do "this."

Ann, I just want to say that I relate to all of your posts. I hope you will keep posting because even though I don't post much, I read every day and your posts make me feel like I'm not alone. I hope you are able to feel better and do what you need to do to gain some peace. I have read a book on spi...

Re: Sunday AM General Conference Session

I have felt so bitter lately. Pres. Uchtdorf's talk was just what I needed to at least help me feel like there is one leader who understands what is driving so many people away. The fear card is used all of the time in this church and the "random rules" mention made me think he may not be all on boa...

Re: So, it's Official, I have 18 HT families

I want nothing to do with the program quite frankly -- looking at your priority list makes me tired and weary. At one time I would have hunkered down but I simply have nothing more to to give. I feel exactly this way right now. Obviously not HT but VT, primary calling, cleaning the church, making m...

Re: 11 yr old Girl, New Beginnings, & Priesthood

I think it is awesome that your 11 year old daughter is so self-aware and confident! Good for her! She is going to be a difference maker. :smile: This post made me find my first talk that I ever gave at a YW program. It was for YWIE. The theme was Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful. I read the book by Ma...

Re: Temple difficulties

I just wish I could belong to a religion that didn't make going to a family member's joyful wedding such a stress and burden. Why should I even have to ask the question "Am a worthy to go to this wedding?" It just doesn't seem right to me. (Sorry for the rant) Why is the church so resistant to havi...

Re: Temple difficulties

I don't have a lot to add except just to say that I am going through exactly what you are going through right now. I don't have a close family member getting ready to go through the temple but it is a possibility in the future. My husband does want me to go though, and so far things have been so bus...

Re: How to overcome temple anxiety?

Nibbler, thank you for your kind words. I guess I just might need to chill out a little bit. I get in these "poor me" modes when I probably just need to not take everything so seriously. That would probably help make the temple more enjoyable, although I'm probably not as creative at you. :smile: I ...

Re: How to overcome temple anxiety?

NIght SG Well, modifying your temple clothing to add a pocket for a hip flask of Glenlivet 21 year probably wouldn't go over well, so you'd have to come up with something more subtle. Just when I though the advice here couldn't get any better :lol: You guys are giving me all sorts of good solutions...

Re: How to overcome temple anxiety?

mom3, It's funny because I have never really thought to just meditate and tune it all out before. All I hear is that you should concentrate on everything that is being said and don't daydream, etc. But the advice given here today seems to say the opposite. I am going to give it a try. I think trying...
