Re: Is NOM going the direction of some other online groups?

My interest/activity on NOM continually reduces with each passing day. This site was all consuming for me when I first broke my shelf. It served a purpose that I will always be grateful. But it's purpose has faded from my life now. I mourn losing it from my life, but I can not progress with it. I am...

Re: Paradox or Problem

Re: Primary kid interviews?

Why are these survey's so scretive?
I understand TSCC doesn't want every Joe Schmuck on the internet chiming in. However it seems reasonable this should be discussed by the membership body as a whole. What happened to the Law of Common Consent? It's been replaced by the Law of Statiscal Surveys.

Re: Help with outing myself?

Put on your big girl panties and be upfront. Tell them how it is.

Tear off the bandaid.

A few weeks of open awkwardness is better than a few years of walking on eggshells.

Above all, be kind. They are human as well. Be bold and be kind.

Re: Can anyone give a better translation of this Spanish?

I'll work on it tonight. The google translate is fairly correct, not flagrant mistranslations, but the flow is uncomfortable in English. Admittedly, the original in Spanish is a rather formal manner of writing so it would take a little effort to translate the meaning instead of the actual words. Unf...

Re: Peer pressure: seminary

An extra hour and a half of church in the morning requires an hour and a half earlier bedtime the night prior means less time out and about after HG's bedtime and less opportunity for 'physical mischief.' See, all part of God special plan for each of us. Uncanny how someones special and unique plan...

Re: Real estate offer

This really isn't any indication one way or another. LD$ occasionally sells property/meeting houses when deemed appropriate. There was an LD$ meetinghouse in Taylorsville, UT that sold many moons ago. Some Evangelical church bought it. I know of another meetinghouse in Kearns, UT that a Vietnamese C...

Re: Peer pressure: seminary

Early morning seminary is an issue that the church has not had to widely confront quite yet. It is an objective drag on sleep deprived teenagers. Extracurricular activities and homework take up so much of free time and how they lose an extra hour and a half of sleep each morning for the poor souls ...

Re: Mormon St. Peters/Vatican renewal - plans pending

Boy , am I glad for modern Revelation. Temple square was looking really rough and in dire need of a refresh.

I've even seen homeless people panhandling outside the gates when walking into Temple square a couple of times.

With all the excitement regarding GenCon only to result in major dud - I prophesy that future Gencon's will not have any more noteworthy announcements as long as the current administration is in place.

Re: 2018 statistics relewsed

828,774 removed from Church records in 8 years. That’s haemorrhaging members. I am terrible with maths, but I checked the death rate average per 1,000 of the USA and it is 8.5. Can someone work out the maths? lol A quick Google search indicates the global and USA death rate is close to 8 per 1000 a...
