The Secret About God

A few things have contributed to the unraveling of my faith in God. Here are some of them. 1. The Gospel Does Not Work For Me Elder Wilford W. Andersen said , “For some, solutions to depression and anxieties will be found through consultation with competent professionals. But for most of us, sadness...

Re: Empty Chairs at Empty Tables

Wow. So well written and powerful. That song is so poignant. I have griefs that can't be spoken in church and it's tough.

Re: Any Hope or Comfort?

SilentDawning, I am thinking about what you wrote. I once had faith and hope in the afterlife, but now I'm just afraid.

I'm quite sure my depression and anxiety are made worse by this faith crisis.

Re: Any Hope or Comfort?

I really appreciate everyone's posts and I'm sorry for not responding more. I have been camping for much of the last 10 days, which has been good for me. I, like you, am looking for comfort and hope from those that have gone down this path before and made it to a better place. I want to be able to r...

DJ, thanks for your post. I like the thoughts expressed by Joseph B. Wirthlin. I would like to believe in Christ again.

Re: Any Hope or Comfort?

Hang in their, friend. Are you seeing a professional and/or taking medication? I have seen many doctors and psychologists over the last 16 years and I've been on many different medications. Last year I decided I was sick and tired of it all and quit taking meds. I confess that may have been a mista...

Any Hope or Comfort?

I don't really believe in a god anymore. I'm trying to have faith, though. Anyway, I feel very little hope and comfort. I'm not handling this very well. General depression and anxiety coupled with the loss of my faith is killing me. Is there anyone here who has felt such despair and then regained ho...

Re: Giving a presentation on polygamy...help?

2:30- (From the original 1830 edition) “For if I will, saith the Lord of Hosts, raise up seed unto me, I will command my people: otherwise, they shall hearken unto these things.” Notice the colon after the word people? That gives verse 30 a distinct meaning. That punctuation was changed in 1849 by ...

Re: April 2016 General Conference

Shawn, Pres. Uchtdorf mentioned it very briefly during his Priesthood session talk. He was talking about happiness and he stated that except for some forms of chronic depression that need to be treated, we are in charge of our own happiness. Maybe that was the one you were looking for. I like that ...

Re: April 2016 General Conference

I thought I heard a speaker yesterday refer to "chronic depression" and now I can't find it. Does anyone remember who delivered that talk?
