Status updates?

Our ward and stake are currently open for 1 hour sacrament attendance only but also doing the video version online for people who don’t feel comfortable attending in person. I’m currently not attending in person or watching online. :lol: I’m dreading the ward announcing a return of the 2nd hour beca...

Re: LDS History in Arizona

I remember going here when I was about 15. One of my mothers showed me a grave that was dated much later, I think in 1890s, that she claimed was the real gravestone for John D Lee. I don't remember all the details, but Brigham Young supposedly helped fake the execution. One of your mothers? Is ther...

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

The more infectious and faster spreading UK variant has arrived in Utah. Are you referring to Mormon immigrants or the virus? Update: we are all doing better after 10 days of this. It’s been relatively mild for us and I feel extremely fortunate for that. Grandpa isn’t out of the woods yet but was a...

Re: New Mission Presidents

I’d marry the female sister missionaries to the nerdy male missionaries and send them home to procreate and attend BYU. Just to keep the Mormon population from decreasing. Then I’d take the type A - general authority wanna be’s and make them tract out the ghetto neighborhoods and berate them for the...

Re: Communicating and the risk of being misunderstood

An important message my deacon dude!

My emotions have been all across the spectrum lately. I’ve found peace in focusing on my own energy and health. There’s a lot to be outraged at but your message should be taken to heart by everyone.

Peace, love, and humor will endure.

Amen!

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

Sister Ryder and I both tested positive earlier this week. So far fairly mild and manageable. The biggest worry is wondering if this is the worst of it or if this coming week will get worse. The weird headache has me up at night. Not having to sweat through polyester polygamy panties has been comfor...

Re: Mental and Emotional Exhaustion

The advice in this thread has been wonderful to read and has helped me reflect on my relationship. DT, it’s never easy to be pleasy. At some point you’ll know the right decision for you. That decision will bring both relief and heartache. I’ve watched a brother and a few friends go through a divorce...

Re: RFM and Peter Bleakley

I hate it when you guys talk about great podcasts. I have to question my self induced Mormon podcast ban I placed upon myself a few years back and make an exception to listen. What is his end game? To agitate for change from within? What’s caused him to be so vocal and speak out on a known “anti Mor...

Re: Family Scripture Study - D&C

Also be aware of shitting your own bed. Having once lived in your state, I know that for most Mormons your social circle is the church. I’m a big fan of not telling anyone about your change in beliefs and Just letting people assume whatever they want. There’s less damage to the social circle. The sl...

Re: Wife dropped a bomb on me

Quit Mormon requires a notary to validate your ID now. I’d just send it in to headquarters on your own. That should still work.

Congrats.

graey, I’ve been where you are. Here’s how I coped with it. I realized the wife wanted me to lead the study and follow the lesson. So I took charge, started the process, then 5 minutes in started asking the kids questions and let it get derailed. I always let the kids talk and threw in the lessons I...

Re: How do you cope with lost friendships?

Just keep calling, texting, or visiting their home. Sooner or later they will come to terms that your friendship is meaningful.

You know, like Stan! 🤔

Time to step up your role as lover, provider, husband, father, and lawn mower! She no longer wears the celestial marriage handcuffs!

Ensign is now the Liahona?

Anyone want to ponder why the Ensign magazine is now the Liahona? I’m thinking the Ensign is too close to the Ensign Peak financial leak? Liahona is just strange. It once was the Spanish version of the Ensign so maybe the change was to be more international? These changes don’t make sense. Ok so her...

Re: We now know what Hagoth did when he left in a ship

Hagoth, wasn’t your great granddaddy the chief of police way back in the glory days? Patrolling the beaches, rounding up the ...
