Re: The SP Counselor and E Sec came by

1. Keep loving and supporting your son. 2. He's not enjoying the attention. 3. LDS kids lose the opportunity to take 8 elective courses because of seminary. That's a full semester. 4. Be wary of chance encounters, they might not be so chance. 5. If he doesn't plan on attending an LDS school seminary...

The Ninety Day Challenge

Folks keep asking "Why would the Leader of the Church challenge us to read the Book of Mormon in 90 days?" Here's the the answer: Because he knows they won't . Ask yourself this: what has the Church taught every member to do? Lie . White lies. I remember asking a gentleman at church if he had done h...

Re: New Missionary Program?

The high functioning autistic kids are going on a 3 month mission for Mom and Dad. Granted, this is a great way to learn to function away from parental supervision but is that what missions are for? I didn't go in 1982 and that made me anathema. Is that what this is about? Carrying young men around ...

NEW TEMPLE RECOMMEND QUESTIONS!!!

I have it on very good authority (Prophet's nephew's dogwalker's 3rd cousin-in-law) that the following questions are going to be added to the Temple Interview: 1. Do you use the full name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in all your conversations and correspondence? 2. Have you or ...

Yeah but it's just the women right? Men are allowed on social media? It's still a win, since most guys don't post stupid conference memes and "I just love listening to the living prophet" garbage.

The leadership of The Church Formerly Known as Mormon, being ancient, is oddly qualified to talk about the rites of their youth.

Re: TBM wife read my priesthood page and sent notes... anyone have any insight?

The Church tends to "lie by omission" but does "lie by commission" as well. Pointing to the omission lies is often less confrontational.

I really can’t figure out why anyone is taking the current Conference rumors any more seriously than the ones from years past that were wrong.
