"I'm a member as well, but not in the Elder's Quorum. I'm in the High Priests group, but serve in the primary until Sunday when I'll be serving in the young men.
I'm not sure how your question applies to the conversation at…"
"You're discounting the legitimate amount of female missionaries the LDS church sends out, not just to Temple Square or the visitors centers, but into some "interesting" neighborhoods as well.
Honestly, I think your statement is just…"
"Look, guys, RJ has a point. When most people think Mormon, they think of the full-time missionaries. Frankly, having been one myself, they aren't all that manly. We may have thought we were, but not in many of the ways that matter. There could…"
"In light of the recent posts, I thought this bit that I wrote recently on facebook might be worth adding to the discussion:
I wanted to share this in church today, but didn't get the chance.
I had a colleague who was upset that the LDS church…"
"I agree with the sentiment you're talking about here. Those of us who can gather still should, in my opinion. The purpose doesn't seem to be to allow us to "relax" in the gospel even more, but to give more people the opportunity…"
"I'm in the bishopric of my ward. So far, we haven't received these kinds of mandates in our area (Las Vegas). On the other hand, I have been involved in asking people to do things beyond what they believe they can do. I have gone to my…"
"Brigham City was done by Richard Dutcher who was LDS at the time.
Personal favorite is actually Kirby Heyborne's stuff. I like The Best Two Years and Saints and Soldiers although some may argue that's not technically a Mormon…"
"I think it's worth asking, if you feel frustrated all the time, why? Do you think it's because your expectations have been raised to unrealistic levels or because your wife isn't all that interested.
Granted, this can slip into the…"
"Of Souls, Symbols, and Sacraments
Is that the talk, you mentioned?
Honestly, I don't think it's inappropriate for you to weigh in here. It's a good thing to go into marriage with the blinders off. You're less likely to be…"
"I just read a story about a woman in her 20s who found porn on her boyfriend's computer. The whole fornication thing aside, she said that despite the fact that they had sex 5-7 times a week he claimed it just wasn't enough and he…"
"Honestly, it seems this is as good a forum as any for this kind of discussion. And it's probably one worth having.
It wouldn't surprise me if there are a lot of LDS men who don't feel quite as satisfied in the bedroom as they might…"
"I can only trace the Fraser Scottish side back to 1700, too many people named Thomas Fraser who named their sons Thomas Fraser. The records I need haven't been digitized yet so there's still hope. The Buchanan side from my mother can be…"
"That is a LITTLE far! I shave my head myself now, but it would be fun to have a barber do it occasionally. There are a few expensive "gentlemen's lounges" that do headshaves. I'll need to save up my pennies.…"
"Bit of an update and another question:
- I weighed in at 150 lbs. today, so a gain of eight pounds so far. I know it's not gainz, but it's progress, and it seems like every one of those pounds has been a fight. But, as I said, progress.…"
"The video is powerful. It reminds me of a day when I went to my son's school to pick him up as was our routine since we got a divorce. My ex was in front of the school, belligerent and told me she was taking him instead. I…"
"By gift I mean this: by not being afraid of your own pain you are not afraid of others' pain either. People sense that they can be vulnerable with you and trust you, for you already understand without them having to explain.…"
"That's why the democratic part of democratic socialism is so important. We vote every 4 years here in Ecuador, and there are representatives of all sides of the political/cultural/economical spectrum, there is a healthy opposition, and each…"
