Emotional Support Person

Some friends and I got together virtually recently to catch up amidst all the craziness. One of them, a TBM, is expecting a baby in a month or two so we talked about how that will go down. The current restrictions are that the mother and one emotional support person are allowed to come to the hospit...

Re: Is the church saying or doing anything???

I bet they are still taking tithing payments.

Now instead of getting practically nothing for 10%, you get absolutely nothing.

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

Utah Gov is saying no groups over 100 next 2 weeks. https://kutv.com/news/local/live-blog-closures-event-cancellations-more-in-utah-due-to-coronavirus Wow does that include schools? I’m in Az and work at a school in Phoenix, should be interesting to see how this unfolds. ASU just closed, and I know...

Re: How to find a new identity?

One thing I found is that as a Mormon, you had all you social groups filled under one roof. Mens/Womens club, spiritual needs, parent support, hobby groups, youth groups, they are all done under the same banner. In the real world, that is highly unusual. People normally have several social groups t...

Re: How to find a new identity?

I don't have a good answer for you, but I totally relate. I used to feel like I had tons of people in my tribe who I had a lot in common with. Now I feel like I have a little bit in common with people, but nobody in my tribe. The funny thing is I've always only had a little bit in common with people...

We are no longer planning to go on a cruise for spring break. And Disneyland will have to wait for this to blow over.

Re: Lori Vallow and apocalyptic religion

This guy's website appears to be about how science can't be trusted: https://universalmodel.com/ Apparently the myth and lore of bronze aged humans, as written in the Old Testament, should trump modern science. Oh man, I almost blew a gasket looking through that website a few years back! We talked ...

Very good analogy. btw, I always thought they sincerely liked your talk and that it went very successfully. You can usually tell when people really enjoyed hearing a talk and when they are just being polite for the sake of etiquette. -- Wndr. Thanks, sorry if my response seemed dismissive, I apprec...

Re: Headache Remedies and Mormons

I remember when I asked if coffee cake was okay to eat. Hahaha. Funny how paranoia can guide you. My brother was a bishop and once told me that caffeine was not an issue with the WOW. Never was. He said no coffee or tea. Herbal teas that don't contain real tea properties are fine. Coffee is not fin...

Re: What does your avatar mean?

Eventually, I started my nearly unnoticeable rebellion of wearing a grey shirt with dark grey buttons instead of white to church. My less-than-white shirt was meant to be an outward expression of my inward admission that I was not one of the noble and great ones. I was not leadership material, at l...

Re: The final curtain falls

MeUndies and Saxx are also good underwear. And if you want an undershirt that isn't garments I have really liked the Mr Davis shirts, they are a bamboo rayon and spandex blend, comfy with some stretch.

Mine is a screenshot of Link from the video game The Legend of Zelda. I love the game and was doing a playthru with my young son when I found NOM.
