Re: Giving Machines = reverse ATM

Ive read the church doesn't manage the donations, only provided the machines. Another charity is in charge of the management.

I’d probably stay active if this were the first presidency:

Brene Brown, Gina Colvin and Lindsay Hansen Park
Id tithe to that.

Re: A tithing victory?

New tax law will be interesting to see how it impacts revenue. We are not paying anymore due to money being used to defend predators.

However, if we were, the alternating years is brilliant.

Spouseman went to a baptism

The EQ President asked what our family needs. Spouseman said nothing, that church policies and practices around abuse aren't safe for us to attend and make his family dangerous by empowering their denial. EQP listened. The RSP was horrified at the song choice (BOM Stories with actions). Spouseman du...

Re: The Return of the Book of Abraham

But many of the BoA apologetics are weakened even further when you add the Book of Joseph (Ta-shert Min papyrus) to the mix. There is no missing scroll argument here, for one thing. The Joseph scroll reinforces many of the problems with the Abraham scroll: it has been translated and says nothing ab...

Re: Support through the holidays

What a great idea to make this thread! Thanks Angel!! Ever since my DS passed away (July of 2017) the holidays are my own personal hell. I have to keep my sh*t together to try and give my DD a happy holiday season, but all I want to do is break down and cry and not get out of bed. I'm really lucky ...

Re: Tips on wearing garments with your bra.

This subject came up in passing today at lunch with a few of us Nommies and since we have a "support" forum it's probably best dropped here. According to my wife, I'm not entitled to an opinion on women's garments because first, I'm a man, and second because I don't wear garments anymore. So I'll t...

Re: Shower thought: Are Mormons accostomed to day old baked goods?

Does this baker really see day old pastry as how she wants her product to represent itself? Thoughts? I think it'd be silly to refuse a sale because you were aware the customer wasn't going to consume it that day. As a customer I would think it weird if a bakery insisted I had to eat the baked good...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Dude, I sent Spouseman out for bourbon to try in our nog and about burned my throat off! Might stick to spiced rum. That surprises me actually, an ounce or two of bourbon spiked into a 8 oz glass of eggnog shouldn't be burning throats. At two ounces (assuming 80 proof) that only results in a 8% ABV...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Is there actually such a thing as store-bought eggnog that is actually worth spiking? I've never had homemade eggnog, so I don't have a frame of reference verses store bought options. I enjoy the store bought stuff well enough, not enough that if it was year round it would always be in the fridge b...

Re: Came out to my mom

We have very little contact with them, which is good. However they claim they want to reconcile. I have no interest...
