Re: Family Scripture Study - D&C

Thanks guys, I was worried that I would end up inoculating my own kids to the point that they knew the same issues but weren’t effected by them because they heard them from a young age forward. That’s a real concern. The key is to dilute. When the wife complained I asked if she wanted to take over. ...

Re: Mr. and Mrs. Græy's Stuff

Thank you, River Morgan. That actually means a lot to me and it helps to hear. I sometimes feel like my telling of events is a little to one-sided here on NOM. My wife is often very supportive, and I believe we will work through a lot of these things given some time. A lot of the struggle stems from...

Re: The missionary half-story

I transferred shortly after that and never heard what happened to that guy but I have a powerful testimony that his life was greatly blessed because I listened to the spirit that day. I served in Japan. At some point a good friend from the MTC was transferred out of his city and I was transferred i...

Family Scripture Study - D&C

WARNING - Long Post. As a TBM I, along with my wife, insisted that our family have daily scripture study. We diligently read out loud from our own scriptures when our oldest kids were still babies. When they got old enough to sit for short stories we began reading to them from the Scripture Stories ...

Just doing what Joseph did. Seek for personal gain by committing light fraud before finally realizing that leading a religion is the best way to get power.

Re: Wife dropped a bomb on me

I've made that mistake before. Now I can't get the number out of my head. My house could be paid off. Kids' colleges could be funded. blah

Re: Attending my Daughter's Temple Wedding?

Just go. Hasn’t the church stolen enough from us? Why let them take away the chance to see your daughter get married. You got the ticket. So go. I agree with RR. The church spent our entire lives teaching us to be honest and have integrity, only to find that it doesn't practice honesty of have inte...

Thanks, RR, jfro18, and Linked. In retrospect it is better that I stopped there. In the words of Portnoy Gary and Angelo Judy Hart - It helps having a place to come where people are glad we came. A place where we can see our troubles are all the same. It helps to be where everybody knows our pseudon...

Re: Estrangement

I'm sorry you have to deal with all of this on top of everything else, Thoughtful. MORmONism basically estranged my family of origin from each other, even when we were all attempting to be good MORmONs. "The Church" was always the most important thing in my family, which is what I believed caused th...

One thing I appreciate about NOM 2.0 as opposed to NOM 1.0 is that the mods have considered banning me fewer times.

I don't want to trigger anyone with this post, so I hope the warning in the subject is sufficient. The recent CFM lessons are closing in on the end of the BoM.
