Re: Happy Fam's Day

Happy Mothers Day! Today I will be talking about the most important thing in my life. The gospel of Jesus Christ, our love for our Heavenly FATHER, the priesthood, and of course attending the temple! In the recent GC, President Russel M Nelson, a true MAN of God, once said that the most important wo...

Re: Today was a hard day !

So if that is the case, then why is she did she say that she did not want him if he was not a member? They have been married 45 years; she must be around 63-65 years old. What man is going to come along and pull her through the veil if she leaves her husband? Because a woman desperately needs a pri...

Re: How to respond to believing spouse?

I adopted the catholic approach. Meaning, if I wasn’t Mormon I would be catholic. What do Catholics do? They go to church and sit by their families. They baptize as part of the tradition. They celebrate the family togetherness and milestone. Throw your definition of integrity out the window and rede...

Re: We’re back! Thanks Captain Salty!

During these troubled times ;) I've noticed something that's fairly consistent on the main board index page: In total there are 195 users online 195 users online right now. Does that sound correct? During these periods where the sessions table has routinely crashed, I've noticed every time that I v...

Re: We’re back! Thanks Captain Salty!

I've noticed the site is up and down quite a bit. Thanks Captain Salty for your efforts to resurrect the site each time it goes down. Just curious, any ideas what's leading to the frequent crashes? Does the host have trouble running a stable database? Or is it something similar to a DDoS attack cau...

Re: Conspiracy Road Trip: Creationism

I’m sure God just sprinkled in really old human skulls along with the dinosaur bones when he created the earth. God can do anything, right? That’s an example of the deep conversations I’ve had with TBM family and relatives. I’ll admit that I can relate to the thought process but I can also admit the...

Re: Priesthood DoorDash

During covid shut ins the extended family would get together for sacrament meeting. Someone assigned a rotation schedule and included me. I decided rather than to say the sacrament prayers, I would just pull up the sign language video version from an iPad. The family thought it was pretty special an...

Re: Resignation help

My understanding is you can send a letter from yourself to the ward bishop or clerk and they should honor that. That assumes they know you or of you. With a third party resignation service like quit Mormon dot com, I think you have to do the notarized signatures to verify you are indeed choosing to ...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

I can specifically recall following the guidance of the church and asking Godde for direction and personal revelation when I was questioning wearing the garment as instructed. As I prayed, I received a prompting to turn on the TV. No sooner had I done that, the answer to my prayers came in the form ...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

Here’s a thought. If the church is trying to control your mind, they would accomplish this by controlling your underwear. If the church is trying to provide the member with a religious symbol that reminds us of covenants and promises, it could accomplish this in a much different way. The cross is an...

We’ve received enough complaints on Dirty Birds posts that it’s been decided to ban him for a period of time.

The committee has voted and resolution has passed.
Go ahead and ban me too.

We’ve received enough complaints on Dirty Birds posts that it’s been decided to ban him for a period of time. The committee has voted and resolution has passed.

Re: Declining callings and talks is getting easier for me

Congrats on determining for yourself your own level of participation. It’s a great place to be in. Before the pandemic, I had managed a few co-callings with Sys Ryder in primary that I enjoyed because it took me out of Sunday school and elders quorum which I had always skipped to sit in the car, go ...

Re: 9 stories from those who returned to the faith

I wonder whether something like this might have made a difference for me. There was a point where I wanted nothing more than to talk about belief with someone faithful and knowledgeable, but I didn't know who that might be or how I might go about it. You bring up an excellent point. At the peak of ...
