Re: Did anyone else get this wacky survey from the church/ward?

It's your local EQP that did it. The COB has it's own survey method that does NOT use commercial non-LDS services. It is also against church rules for anybody but the COB to conduct them.

Re: Prayer to the ocean

That is what surfing does for me. When the waves are small, or bad shape, I still go out and call it therapy surf. Just sitting in the ocean and enjoying the peace it brings is addicting. I surfed over 100 times last year!

Re: Questions to get TBMs thinking

If Pres Nelson, The Prophet, came to you and personally asked for your 15-year-old daughter to be his plural wife, would you give her to him, or would you call the police?

Re: Another Book

Rob, I wrote a blog post over at Wheat and Tares about an old anti-Mormon book my father gave me. In that book it has a quote from BY justifying the counterfeiting. I asked if anybody had ever heard that quote. I bet that it is in your new book. Please return and report!

Re: The many Ps in life.....

I think you forgot a "P". You've had one too many "Pricks" in your life. Not all men are Pricks. But don't be in a rush. Now that your window for men is open to the world, you have so many more opportunities.
