Re: Progress in 2016…Looking Hopeful toward 2017

I now crave the deeper relationship with her and have been working towards developing that between us. She’s been opening up to me more. If this life is all we have I want to make the most of it. I want to live it with her and our kids. That is beautiful. I'm glad things are working out for you guy...

Or consecrated oil, or bread and water that have been blessed with priesthood power. It's all magic. Just not magic you are familiar with.

Re: Gospel doctrine 2017

This thread is a great idea Emower. It will help us all fulfill our "calling" as NOMs. And Brent and others with GD teaching experience can help us figure out the most effective way to present our NOM points of view. It's time for us NOMs to unite and make Gospel Doctrine 2017 one hell of a year. :D

Re: Dressing for Safety at BYU

I think these "modesty issues" are just byproducts of the unhealthy way the church teaches women to view their bodies. The whole point of what I said. The church stresses "modesty" in a way that is very body shaming. Yet there is so much pressure to be attractive to catch a husband because that is ...

Re: LDSanswers.org

I kind of like the guy. Can you believe he has 10 kids? You can see his entrepreneurial spirit shine through his bio. He even has his own imdb page that says the exact same thing as his bio on LDSanswers. In a way I think he represents the sentimental nostalgic side of the church I used to long for...

Re: Dressing for Safety at BYU

I'm really surprised the turn this whole thread has gone. While tight clothing may or may not be flattering or considered an elegant choice, the last thing Mormon women need is their clothing or lives further policed. I love what Amy Poehler once said about disagreeing with another woman's choices,...

Re: Faith in the......

What a beautiful post.

I am also relearning what faith mean to me, and it is such a wonderful journey. At first losing my faith in the church was scary. But now I realize it has set me free.

Re: Confused About How DW Interpreted "Spiritual" SM Story

During sacrament, the Bishop's wife gave a talk. Her closing thoughts were a story which she teared up a bit while telling. The short version of this "super-spiritual" story: She was feeling depressed a few months after her husband had been called Bishop, that maybe God didn't love her, and she rea...

Re: Taking off the garment

Okay, So I'm weird. I actually like wearing them. I did try not wearing them for a while, but regular undies always give me wedgies. I never get wedgies with garms. Also it's nice to have an extra layer between my bra underwire and my boobs. Random underwire boob jabs are not fun. I did buy a spool ...

Re: #LightTheWorld Drives Me Crazy, Here is Why

I saw Christian and secular groups donate tens of thousands of dollars to various charities. I saw budgets of churches where they are giving 25 - 35% of their income to charities, kitchens, shelters, and hospitals. I was shocked at the amount of money that comes out of these churches. I wonder if a...

Re: Thinking about a kid in my Primary class

Jessica turned to me and said something to the effect that, “People like that aren’t good enough for the temple. The temple/Lord’s house deserves better.” Wow! That is a b**chy thing to say. “My dad was going to name me something better, but I got stuck with this name (his mom's choice).” Dad's not...

Re: Would TBM's be better off if they weren't TBM's?

I think they would be healthier (mentally at least.) Happier? I think it might depend on the person. Maybe there are certain people/personality types that really work with the TBM mindset. I was mostly happy as a TBM, but I'm a lot happier now that I don't have to do constant mental gymnastics to ma...

I hope the Harry Potter books are really scripture from one of the lost tribes.

Re: Leah Remini documentary

I haven't watched it, but I read an article about it. There are certainly some uncomfortable parallels. I'm glad she got out.

Way to go on planting seeds.
