Re: Any recommendations for good books to read?

I'm in the middle of Untamed by Glennon Doyle. Really good stuff.

Re: Thoughts and Prayers During a Difficult Time

Mom3: I'm so sorry. That's the roughest thing, worse than being sick oneself. My update. Nobody sick, thank goodness, but our business has taken a 40-50% hit on revenues. If we can obtain an SBA Loan (the forgivable ones), I won't have to lay off staff (which I really don't want to do). We already p...

Re: Musings after Conference

Mostly I found this particular GC to be a snoozer, particularly given the current circumstances. It seems incredibly out of step with what's actually happening in our lives, and that made it a bit jarring, but not in a good way. Life, even on lockdown, is much more poignant than anything I heard dur...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

al Masijh says something I really liked in the show, and I looked it up. It's a C.S. Lewis quote:
“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth."

Re: COVID a sign of the last days?

Christians have been predicting the second coming is imminent for two thousand years. Barely had Jesus left the room when they started seeing signs of his return. In my teen years it was the Cold War. We expected the USSR would hit the button and there would be a nuclear winter, and that would usher...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

I really liked it! Glad some of you have also seen it. I was surprised at Dermott Mulroney being a Mormon POTUS, but he seemed to hit some of the right tones. I love the thought experiment of trying to figure out if he's divine. When he does a miracle, it still feels like a trick. Is he for real or ...

Re: Women and Priesthood

To put it in a simpler way, I don't need a man to explain to me what it's like to be a woman, and every time they try, they demonstrate their utter failure to comprehend what they are talking about. It cuts both ways. I keep on being told what it's like to be a man by women. Not a clue either. Fair...

Re: An Unemotional Analysis of the Recent "Whistleblower" on LDS Church Finances

I confess two things: 1) I didn't read all the comments that came before, and 2) today it occurred to me that I've been off the grid mostly (due to some health issues), but I didn't mean to totally disappear. I'm back! On this topic, I have a lot of things to say, so here goes: 1) I remember the Chu...

Re: Having a Different Conversation/I Don't Know What To Say

First reaction is that I've never heard of this idea that the parents go the temple the first time with their kids. Really, I haven't heard of it. I've raised 3 kids in the church, and this was never an expectation. I've literally never been to the temple with my kids when they've done youth temple ...
