Re: Have you had this experience? Care to share?

Are we connected in ways we don’t understand? I was having lunch with my cousin in Spokane yesterday and she was telling me about an experience she had had the previous night when she felt a strong impression to call the mother of her friend, a professional climber for North Face. This was unusual....

Re: Have you had this experience? Care to share?

Have you had these kinds of experiences that you seem unable to explain away? Nope. Absolutely nothing that I can think of. I'm sure there's still a part of me somewhere that wants to believe in this type of magic. Why is it that it seems only an extremely tiny subset of humanity gets to experience...

Spouseman is lucky the EQP didn't ask the friend if he had faith enough NOT to be healed.... :roll:
He should have. Friend didn't make it. So that would have actually been more inspired than commanding him to serve.

Re: Worth sharing..Response to Nelson’s talk

NHP is next on the excommunication list! Interestingly, Gina Colvin dodged a bullet, but now is as open, if not more so, in her disapproval of the brethren on social media. I'm not sure the church can handle the PR when they go after prominent members that engage the middle way. NHP does podcasts a...

Re: Manti Temple Rumor

Moroni dedicating Manti temple hill? NOT A RUMOR. All of my ancestors from Sampete Valley going back to the founding by early pioneers can confirm that it is a fact. (Their feeeeeeeeeeeelings say so!) I bet MORONi is pissed that the cancelled the pageant. :geek: I heard a comment from someone that ...

Re: Manti Temple Rumor

I've heard that rumor too. What is Native American architecture, exactly? I'm picturing Mesa Verde. I heard a comment from someone that when SLC closes for refurbishing, it may open as ongoing open house only. Hmmmm. Also find it interesting that they create a temple shortage before announcing new U...

Spouseman and the Priesthood

Spouseman visited a friend in the hospital when the EQP showed up. The EQP told the friend all the people who were worried about him. He had apparently invited the bishop, leadership from the other ward, stake leaders... they all sent their well wishes, but also their regrets they couldn't come give...

Re: RMN is an extortionist

The lady from the article made a wonderful point about how this is kicking sand in the eyes of all families that vary from Nelson's ideal family. Plus, it is one more attempt at establishing God as running an after-market retirement center for Pharisees. He would just claim that of course he preach...

Coffee put my autoimmune disease into remission. Wine seems to be making my smile lines vanish. I drink both most days. I think my whole adult life would have been better with them in my life. If you don't mind my asking, which autoimmune disease? I ask because mine is rheumatoid arthritis, which c...

Re: Visiting New Orleans

I've been to Mardi Gras twice. I didn't see anything too shocking. Lots of people in the streets partying but a strong police presence. Some limited nudity. Meh.

The voodoo shops and ghost tours were much more fun. Food is to die for.

Re: I need some support. TW/CW child rape

Thank you all. Spouseman has been clear he wants nothing to do with his family, period. Done with them all. DD is deciding whether she wants to talk. Its been rocky here but hopefully we can get to some sort of even keel soon and recover. Going outside today for a bit helped, sunshine.

Re: I need some support. TW/CW child rape

I really appreciate all the responses. It's been rough. I am looking into protective orders. There is already one in place for my BIL as a condition of his bail. I am not sure we can get one on MIL, but hopefully can find out from either the DA office or the detective tomorrow. I will look into SNAP...

Re: Blew up with DW "No more Tithing!"

Sorry but I need to vent. I just got the bill for my 17-year-old day in the ER after a D.O. Lets just say that it's a lot. Birth dad isn't interested in helping. So with this new bill we pretty mich drain our savings. I finally told my wife that we are no longer sending $600 a month to a multi-bill...

I need some support. TW/CW child rape

The stalking situation was the final catalyst in our leaving the church and being ostracized by my inlaws wh...

Re: BYU police department to be decertified

And I'll bet the BYU pd thought up this spying gig all on their own, right? I'm sure no one on the BYU board would have ordered or thought of such a thing. I wonder how the "board" would feel if Utah police departments shared unrequested files of board member offenses with the Salt Lake Tribune. Al...
