Re: I told our oldest son

I think this was very good to come out to your son. Sounds like many missionaries experience the suicidal ideations. All that pressure on these young kids (now 18 year old!) cannot be good. Hope your son is doing better. I think it's critical for missionaries that don't serve or that return home ear...

Re: Sacrament Meeting Shooting

As a missionary, I realized we were teaching a druggie when a man busted through the front door, brandished a knife then proceeds to drag the young lady to the back room and gave her a beating. But, we went right on teaching her and baptizing her. I'm thinking there should have been some kind of rul...

Re: Are Mission Presidents feeling the heat?

Missionary success and missionary morale will never improve until TSCC admits that they're just like all the other religions out there. Well, get rid of the weirdness like the temples also but there really is nothing left after that. They will have to revamp once the mish #s drop to about 40K.

Re: Impractical, uncomfortable, and unsightly

It's going on a year since my wife went to church last but she still wears garments faithfully. I figure things could be a lot worse so I don't say anything. I'll never forget RR describing how (a relative?) wears the garment hanging out from shorts like it's a badge of honor. When I heard that stor...

Re: Trite and often pious TBM phrases

The air show was great. As stated, we were there on Sunday...so much fewer people. OP was spoiled and had VIP seating. The ending was pretty lame. They announced that the Thunderbirds would actually perform a little early but apparently they had complications and they ended up flying much later. I w...

Re: This Really Sucks!

So sorry to hear what you'll be going through. I've told my story on here before. I was two weeks from sitting outside the temple of my daughter's wedding. Luckily for me they called it off. Shortly after that she met someone else and a year later they were married up the canyon with an amazing back...

Re: Trite and often pious TBM phrases

Glad to know some fellow NOMers were at the airshow on Sunday. Damn, that was a long wait before the thunderbirds! We decided to leave and had to catch it on the bus ride out. Pious remarks...well let's see. Not really pious but a subtle remark my dad uses really pisses me off. He always includes "h...

Re: Update abt TBM in laws in my ward

So sorry you have to deal with in-laws in your ward. I used the same comment with my dad about the seven differing first vision accounts. And don't forget that JS didn't tell anyone about this for 10 years. Subtle tidbits of info like this gives people enough to chew on and later on might give them ...

Re: Scouting is dead

IT Vet, I have no doubt many parents will have that mindset. Little do they know that the Sons of Helaman award doesn't mean diddly squat to employers unless you live in Provo. People have been putting "eagle scout" on their resume for years and years. It's hard to say how it will affect the control...

Re: Scouting is dead

Old topic...but my thoughts are: young men that are still interested in scouting will probably not want to be busy two back to back nights during the week. In other words, they won't want to attend non-denominational scouts one night and then a LDS young mens meeting the following night. Most kids s...

Re: Coyote Gulch in Escalante

Thanks rincewind. I'll have to look for that when I go back. I'm sure you learn something every time you're down there. For me, it was check your truck for rattles before taking the 40 mile washboard road. I got passed by a prius and even an outfit that had probably rolled a couple times. They must ...

Re: Coyote Gulch in Escalante

I had an amazing weekend camping in Coyote Gulch. Couldn't ask for a better view rolling out of bed and having front row seat to Jacob Hamblin Arch. I recommend it to those who are adventurous but haven't seen it. So we did go the sneaker route and there were ropes already in place on the final desc...

Re: The cost of serving a senior mission

I know of a senior couple that was living on the east bench in a good size home before their mission. Immediately after they got back, they had to downsize and now they're living in innercity in a rundown neighborhood. Pretty sad.

Re: I've decided I'm not going to church anymore as of today... Now what?

Try and get caught up with the fam on Sunday if that's feasible. I look at Sunday as a catch-up day, if I was extra lazy on Sat. Or if I did good on Saturday with the honey dos I might just fart around on Sunday. It took a while for me to get over the guilt as I watched neighbors drive to and from c...

A question for SeeNoEvil: does resigning help you "let it go?" Like let go of the anger and not dwell so much on how it's affected your life decidions starting from when you were a kid. These internet forums consume a lot of my time and just curious if it gets better after you resign. And maybe your...
