Re: Sobering thoughts

Thank you for the post, Korihor. Recently I spent an unexpected day at the children's hospital with my daughter. The whole time We were there I was struck by how lucky I was that our visit was just one day when it could easily have been longer, that my son was able to tell me exactly what had happen...

Re: Age poll

Upper end of the youngest age bracket. I'm pretty sure I had a dramatically different world view 10 years ago when I still would have fit in this choice bubble. :)

Re: A Week Without G's

Thanks for the support and advice! Fortunately, I live in an area where Mormon concentration is low and I spend relatively little time with people who would feel the need to judge my underwear choices. (What a strange thing to write in seriousness.) Sorry for the frustration, RR! I'm just glad that ...

It's an awkward time of the every other year. I am planning to play along until my last unmarried sibling ties the knot.

A Week Without G's

I had a bit of a meltdown a while ago after trying (unsuccessfully) to get some g's that actually fit. (In a nutshell - they are uncomfortable, ill fitting, ridiculous, patriarchal relics of a practice that makes my skin crawl!) This spurred me into the action of ditching them for the past week. It'...

Apparently your dw has yet to discover the glory of a white t-shirt under everything! :lol: Also, garment tape prevents any multi-layer slipping.

Re: Irritating mission attitudes

That quote is in this months Ensign. (Link below.) I found this article troubling as it diminishes the need for strong personal convictions and inspiration, dismisses the intelligence of women, and focuses on marriage as the be all end all goal of every choice a young woman can make. This mentality ...

Re: Independence Zion

The LDS church owns the land that Smith originally dedicated but hasn't done anything with it to hasten the work. :roll: But the CC people are the ones who got their act together enough to actually build something. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/83/Independence_-_RLDS_Temple_...

Re: Independence Zion

This story is alive and well here in Missouri, especially the Kansas City (Independence) area. A frequent fast and testimony jest in the area is "I'm so grateful I won't have to move for the gathering!" The CC have a beautiful temple in Independence. They offer tours to the public, too! A lot of lan...

This sounds a lot like George Q. Cannon's defense of eugenics and polygamy... not a fan.

Re: A missionary valentine

Well, ward mission pres. DH got wind of this and suggested he invite an elderly widowed sister as well. Not nearly as amusing, but definitely a sweet gesture for this sister. I would be incredulous of this guy if I didn't know him - he's one of those folks that was homeschooled and gives the rest of...

A missionary valentine

Today a tbm, single, male friend of mine signed up to feed the sister mishies dinner this month. The only available date was Feb. 14. The guy asked me if this was ok. My mouth could not be stopped from saying that it would be if they read D&C 132 together. I don't think he got it... but he'll be hav...

Re: There is a lot of pain here

Knowing that other people feel the same pain eases my own. My goal is to be (almost) as happy as the person people who know me think I am. I appreciate that this board allows me to process the emotions that come with entering a different phase of life. But allowing a space to focus on the beauty of ...

Re: Coke at BYU is the Latin Mass

There are professors who keep mini fridges stocked with the forbidden liquid and simply request that you leave fifty cents on the fridge if you feel the need to have a can. Not the same as having the stuff available in a vending machine, but it does create a kinship between those who follow the stra...
