Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

One of my daughters and her family are at Disneyland today. They said the crowds are down, and they are having a great time. Thank you Corona! I never thought of this. I should be planning a trip to Disneyland with the family right now!!! ;) Actually, wife is in Hawaii with two long time friends. I...

Re: Maybe it’d be nice if everyone posted a very short intro who they are

Third (and this one's the doozie) was when DW and I were preparing to be sealed in the SLC Temple (both in our 40's). We were married in a civil ceremony first, then a year later applied for the sealing. In the meantime our beautiful baby boy was born. When we applied we were told that our son coul...

Re: Moving on Up and Out!

Welcome to the community. Always enjoy reading the process that people go through in their faith/crisis journey as I can often find much that relates to my journey. You say that your DW is supportive and is "nuanced active" (interesting way of putting it), but what is her belief status now that you ...

Re: Hi I'm stealthbishop

Wow. So glad to see Stealth back! One of the great posters from the previous NOM board! I'm comfortable in where my faith transition is now, so I only log in here a couple of times a month just to check in. Was totally surprised - and happy! - to see Steath's introduction post. Happy to read through...

Re: TM wife considering tithe on surplus

My husband is beginning to prepare our taxes, and every time he wants me to look at them, I get either angry or sick just looking at that figure that goes to the church. This. Only at our hose DW does the books, not sure if/when this may change. Thousands down a rat hole... I can’t even look at the...

Re: I am græy. Happy to become part of this community.

Welcome græy. Glad to have you on board. Our stories are very similar, only it seems you have hung on (for the sake of family) much longer than I did. After a few months into my search for truth, and research into the Church, I was done. Once I made that decision I no longer believed, I quickly aske...

Re: Garments

Re: Some thoughts on life...

There are certainly moments when the thought of annihilation is unsettling but, as Hagoth mentions, the thought of eternity can also be unsettling. Yes, Hagoth makes a very astute point that I've never considered. While my eventual death may be unsettling, the monotony and boredom of eternal existe...

Some thoughts on life...

Reading through Sparky’s thread on the loss of his sister (so sorry Sparky) has brought up a new set of thoughts and emotions that have been recurring for me lately. Having been a non-believer for almost a decade now, my thoughts on religion and God have pretty much settled into place. In the beginn...

Re: My sister has taken her own life

I can't imagine what this was like to go through, not having experienced anything like this myself, so I'll just offer my condolences.

But I do have some thoughts along this line, which I'll post separately so as to not derail this thread.

Re: Hypothetical situation/how to talk about ex sex

I look at it like this (although the example is an extreme one). People in a relationship often take risque (nude) photos of each other, or of themselves for the other. But if that couple later go their separate ways, is it ok to share those photos/video publicly? For me the answer is easy... NO! I ...
