Re: Why are callings kept 'secret' until announced?

Well, drum roll.... It was second counsellor in the bishopric. Not the bishop. Phew. Why he couldn't have just told me that. Sigh. More Mormon weirdness.

Re: Why are callings kept 'secret' until announced?

Yes I was afraid of that answer. I think I will pray tonight that he isn't going to be the bishop!! Then if he hasn't I can claim my prayers have been answered 😁

Why are callings kept 'secret' until announced?

My Dad is an uber TBM and is well up there in the stake as far as callings are concerned. He's held loads of 'high profile' callings. He told me the other day that him and his wife have a meeting with the stake President. So I messaged him today asking what his new calling was. Only because its impo...

Re: Endure to the End

Wow. I couldn't do all that. I never even did all that when I was a TBM 😂 Perhaps its slightly different for me as DH is on board with my dissafection. But whereas I'm ready to leave he wants to cling on, even though he hates going to church more than I do! The only church related thing I do is atte...

Re: Back to school blessings...

My MIL believes in blessings like its some magical power. My niece was in hospital with a bleeding spot on her face, it wouldn't stop. I asked her how the doctors stopped it in the end and she replied 'a blessing'. It was all I could do not to drop my head into my hands. (What really happened was th...

Re: It’s ok if they don’t understand. I have nothing to prove to them.

Hello! This is my rant/confession to anyone who needs to hear this. It’s ok if they don’t understand. I have nothing to prove to them. It’s not ok for me to give my own power away. I’m done going to church and worshiping God in a way that doesn’t resonate with me. I’m done with the lies that say yo...

Re: I think I've reached the next stage in my journey

Have you not tried it yet? We were at an English heritage place today (castle) and they always have wine to taste in tiny sacrament style cups. It was an ideal opportunity to taste a little bit of something without buying a whole bottle in case I didn't like it. But kids and dh were there so I lost ...

I think I've reached the next stage in my journey

Physically we don't go to church that much anyway. DH hates our ward and has never settled there since moving a year ago. Not helped by the fact no one talks to him and I mean no one. I'd say we go once every 3 weeks on average. I'm happy with my less active status. But I've decided I'm now 'non pra...

Re: DS is getting hitched

I haven't been to a sealing since my own 13 years ago. Thankfully we have a normal church wedding beforehand so I didn't feel cheated. I would have been utterly devastated if that was just my wedding. I don't remember much about it apart from feeling stupid in all the robes whilst the wedding guests...

Re: This Really Sucks!

It does suck and it really is COMPLETELY unnecessary. As it looks like a lot of you come from Utah I can tell you that the church is different in the U.K. Which proves a lot of church 'policy' and 'doctrine' is actually cultural crap that varies from country to country. Your situation would never ha...

Re: Impractical, uncomfortable, and unsightly

I still maintain that garments are the single dumbest idea Smith ever had. I can't wrap my mind around how anyone takes them seriously, including myself a few years ago. Especially given the origins started with a frontier sex cult! I'm considering starting a campaign similar to Ordain Women or Sam...

Re: “Find a Husband” Rant

You hit the nail on the head. Do what feels good and right for you. Make your own choices and be free. Don't be pressured. Seriously, get married/don't get married whatever. Its YOUR life and YOUR choice.

Hi, I'm new from the U.K

Hiya. I'm 35, married from England with two boys. Hubby and I are both in a similar place with church. Essentially, we can't be doing with it anymore but were so indoctrinated with culture/guilt that we can't completely leave! Hoping to get some perspective here.
