Re: An update from Holland - the country

About the Church, not much in the loop.
More units still closing, and the loss in active membership as a result is abt 40% compared with 2015

An update from Holland - the country

Hello all, It’s been a while. Lots of things have changed. First of all I suddenly find myself having a new place of my own. Signed the lease on a new condo just 2 weeks ago. Secondly: My DD is moving in with me, she’s had enough of her mother. “I’m the adult one dad, mom is acting like a young teen...

My son’s the last formal holdout

This afternoon during a lovely sushi-lunch I posited the question whether my girl would want to resign from the Church. She asked why she should. Missionaries and members give my ex and the kids a wide berth. Ex resigned, I did it for her. DD felt it not needed till I pointed out that her greataunt ...

Wheat, wheat, wheat, still giving me the occasional nightmares

Hello all, TLDR: I was so TBM I single-handedly organized a shipment of 100.000 poinds of wheat from England to Holland and arranged packing and preserving. Both which never had been done in Continental Europe, and never have been done since. In Holland we had little in the way of storage and people...

Re: I think I want to be cremated...

Cremation is not a problem. You can get burned up quite fine. The biodegradable-templestuff is Paper, yes paper. In Holland graves get emptied after 10 years (unless you pay for an extension which is thousands of dollars) Emptied meaning they dig you up again, and toss whatever remains into a massgr...

Re: Exmo-Reddit, sometimes I just can’t handle it

Well Red Ryder,

Lovesick, not yet. But since I live with my parents my mom and dad have said more than once they have had great pain about missing my children’s childhood.
And I feel the same, I have 2 kids but they were mostly “hers”.

So yes, that’s a big reason.
And yes, I have the same doubts.

Exmo-Reddit, sometimes I just can’t handle it

Today I made the mistake of posting on Reddit what I feel about kids. About my vasectomy. About many things. Opinions are like buttholes, everyone has one, and they often stink. Quote Well, I do feel the need to tell a cautionary tale here. Because life can throw you curveballs. Dutch convert, had 2...

Re: Is NOM really "middle way" to any extent anymore?

Do I attend reddit, yes. And now more than ever. Do I attend NOM, yes because this is home. Or to be more exact, I am making sure it stays that way. For anyone transitioning I would recommend NOM over Reddit. As I dive again into the crazy, and as I find myself drawn in again due to that fickle thin...

Re: Is NOM really "middle way" to any extent anymore?

NOM used to be more nuanced some years ago. I do feel more people are less afraid of the Church as they used to be, though the number of throwaway-accounts on reddit would suggest otherwise. As such the need for NOM is diminished, however it still fills a niche for those who desire a more safe and c...

Re: Paris, well what to say (now with pics)

Ah, dug up this old thread.
Why, just to finish it.

My inlaws decided 2 years ago to go cheap and avoid the toll-roads, saving Eur 65,00
Seems they received speeding-tickets for Eur 180,00.

My DD just reminded me how idiot she thinks her mom’s parents can be sometimes.

Re: The day it all sinks in

I think having a good non-alcoholic Netherlands beer as a symbolic gesture might be a good thing, providing there are non-alcoholic Netherlands beers. No need to make yourself suffer by desiring happiness. Enough choice, just got from my friend L and R’s house. Got the move nailed down now. Now off...
