Re: Adult Saturday Night Stake Conference "date"

Did you actually, in fact, promise your wife before you got married that you would attend church and go to the temple? Or did you marry her in the temple and the expectations are that you would do those things because you both were believers?

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

...BTW, if you want to try this breathing technique, download a free app called Paced Breathing and set the inhale and exhale times to 5.5 seconds, with little or no pause at the top and the bottom.... Thanks for sharing your experiences here Hagoth. I'm going to check out the app and book. Looks v...

Re: Cannabis. What is my problem?

My experience with cannabis is similar to yours, Stealth. I've tried it about half a dozen times and there's just no spark. I do get tired and can see how it could help with sleep. I don't care for a lot of alcohol either. A small glass of wine on occasion is relaxing but I don't need or want anythi...

Re: Ms. Stealth and I and wine drinking

Barefoot Wines and Oreo Cookies are teaming up to make a wine. This might represent a good first wine for Mormons since it is unlikely anyone will be able to make a wine from hard wheat food storage. https://www.abc4.com/news/cookie-flavored-wine-coming-soon-from-oreo-barefoot-wine/ Interesting com...

Re: Trump & Church

I was impressed with Rusty Bowers until he said that if Trump were running against Biden again, he would vote for Trump. Even after Trump thoroughly bullied him and threatened him, Bowers will still vote for Trump again. Until Bowers said that, I thought he was very honorable. -- Wndr. It's seems l...

Re: "Keep Sweet" or I will break you.

I finished watching this last night and ended up crying. The ending is so sad because the people continue to worship and revere a predator. The recording of him "training" his wives is absolutely disgusting! But more personally, I recognize the way I (we) were trained to say yes to things that are a...

Re: Ms. Stealth and I and wine drinking

In my first wine-drinking attempt, I purchased a bottle of white wine from the grocery store. It tasted like paint thinner. I've since grown more accustomed to the taste and recommend trying Barefoot wine, especially red wines. Also, St Chapelle huckleberry wine is lovely. I'm not a regular drinker,...

This topic might seem more appropriate in the Coffee Shop, but the thing I want to stress is the failure of Mormonism, and religion in general, to deliver on direct personal experience. This simple breathing trick can give you a more powerful baptism by fire than sitting through a lifetime of gener...

Bishop Graey, Thank you for taking on such an intensive position and serving your Mormon community with such love and awesomeness. You are already making a significant difference for members just by being you. I wish you the best as you continue forward.

Re: Are they worshipping the Church?

The church speaks for god and acts on his behalf. Since God is actually invisible and silent, it is pretty easy to replace god with the church, which is visible, physical, and vocal. The church demands your obedience, your time and talents, and your will. It asks you to dissolve your boundaries to a...

Re: Alcohol Content of Beer in Utah vs Walmart

With gas, most cars in the US only require 87 Octane. So spending more for higher octane gas will not improve performance in the fast majority of cases. Because the common method of increasing octane is by mixing in ethanol that has a higher octane value, but less energy per volume, high octane gas...

Re: Polygamy and later sexual repression

The polygamous marriage proposal is indirect, a remarkable combination of the romantic and the non-romantic. “I love Fanny,” Smith tells Hancock, yet he does not profess his love to Fanny face to face. He uses an intermediary, a male relative, to propose to her. Despite the indirection, this is ent...
