Re: Education is a Comandment...

Leaders have used the old "This is something the Lord wants you to do" or "I feel inspired you should do...X" so many times I'm numb to it now. It's what I believe that matters. It's easy to just say the Lord wants you to do something to get you to do it. But believing that one statement can hurl y...

Re: Extremely Rough Sacrament Meeting

Thank you for sharing that experience Curt, it helps me realize I need to try harder to "grin and bear it". Especially considering the speaker volume in the foyer, there's no escape except for leaving the building for a cool down lap. 😎 Before our current bishopric was put in place, going on five ye...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

We can make decisions that blow-up spectacularly. We all have a few doozies. But hopefully we can own our decisions and our privilege of self-determination. Church leaders need to staff the church. Sometimes they will say what they need to say in order to do so. When DW was pregnant and called into...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

First off I need to say you all are amazing and you deserve to hear it from me. I read your replies weeks ago but I just can't quite figure myself out. I go back and forth from feeling lame and weak for allowing myself to be compelled, to a feeling of being taken advantage of my "reactivated" situat...

Re: Education is a Comandment...

Waking up this morning after a restless night I was able to feel some calm thanks to the words from you guys. I have feelings I can't quite turn into thoughts which can be expressed but often I read them here. Some smart people here or at least talented at putting together meaningful responses. Than...

Education is a Comandment...

"Education is a Comandment..." Except when the church has their own plans for you. https://blog.pathwaynewsroom.org/2018/04/general-authorities-education/?cid=FB_08-07-2019_BYUPW_SEPT19-Enroll_general-authorities-education&fbclid=IwAR3pvN_R2NJ3Iw6S6Y2nQdSNiZOK_pG1Suy2jNOTe6BSORh-JDmScsG8K44 This sho...

Exactly.

When the Sabbath becomes more important than people, it has lost its meaning. The same is true of the garment. It should serve us; we shouldn't be burdened by legalistic rules about its use. "Wear it throughout your life, and don't defile it," is good enough.

Re: Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

My gosh, the information I get here is so insightful, or maybe I'm so isolated that I just don't find reasonable input from anywhere else. The new posts this morning were especially helpful. And it's not that I am being changed by anyone's opinions I'm just able to see myself and my own thoughts cle...

Re: Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

All good comments, thank you. Interesting how the words every day and every night got in there, I have suffered from severe heat rashes due to sweat and garments sticking to my skin in the shop at work and I feel confused about not taking your shirt off in the yard. There are things I just would not...

Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

I apologize for bringing this up here again, I know this topic is discussed over and over and it's like asking what is the best oil to use in a motorcycle discussion group, it's heard all too often and there are as many view points as there are responses. But I'm at a critical point with this. I had...
