  1. New First Presidency

    Not too long ago Pres. Eyring and Elder Holland, had a session with the youth through the internet. And they were all over each other. Patting arms, holding hands for a second, etc. So you're quite right. I think it was a gesture of knowing Pres. Uchtdorf is onto a new calling etc. So a show of support and understanding that Pres. Uchtdorf feels some sadness at not being in the calling anymore and remembering all the wonderful times. https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/2017-03-1000-face-to-face-with-president-eyring-and-elder-holland?lang=eng
  2. Nah...Satan didn't want to give us our free agency remember? Kind of wish I hadn't brought this issue up with you, you're kind of the last person that I should have done that with on this board, not to be rude. And I'm sensing zero empathy. I wasted my time, and wasting it now. P.S. Joseph Smith was attracted to young people, he didn't have children with all of his wives except Emma, that we know of. So what's up with that? What's right about saying it's a commandment to marry these particular women or women that have husbands already? So that's ok but a gay couple that want to be married in monogamy is wrong and they can adopt. I hate when you sort of indicated that gays are pedophiles by bringing up the other hypothesis, maybe you didn't mean to. Helen Mar Kimball was 14, a young person!
  3. I do agree with them about women that have children, still have so much influence by their raising good humans. But not all women want that, some or many, are single all their lives. What about those women, and those women that get revelations, or want to serve in another capacity, their fellowman? I'm more addressing all board members about this. I may be old fashioned, but I like women that become mothers to be there as much as possible for their children while young. After they hit elementary school, then sure they could go to work outside the home. And I totally understand women that don't have that luxury of staying home, needing to work. I think their children will be fine. I hope they get the support they need to work and raise a child too. Either through the government, church or family. But do understand what they mean by women's influence being great because of raising children to go out into the world and make a difference for the good. But not all women want that or can have that, they could have a huge influence on the church and I believe that their voices should be heard and not because a male leader gave them the floor for a minute, but that women should lead and have some authority to make it stick. I remember a talk by one of the leaders about women talking in counsel meetings, but they shouldn't talk too much. I'll have to find it. Thought that pretty darn lame.

    https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2013/10/come-join-with-us?lang=eng I will miss him so much as a leader that has many opportunities to speak in General Conference. I hope he still has a public voice, because he surely helped many to stay in the church, despite their doubts.
  5. Reverse it Storm, what if you were told you cannot love your wife but a man instead, now tell me how that would go over. Any empathy at all at their plight? What kind of God indeed would do this to somone, in Pres. Packer's words. Yet it has happened. And clearly it's not always a choice to be gay but when it's not, can you see how it would feel. Or how would it feel to be told that you mustn't act on that love? No marriage, family nothing. Just go along and then you will be changed in the afterlife. Does that sound fun, knowing you would be married to a man? See how this works, my little made up scenario? I think this is a test for all humankind. Just as God put several ethnicities out there. He is behind the gay children as well. Now is the test on how they will be treated, too bad humankind did a horrible job with those of a different color.

    Pres. Eyring is a sweetheart, I wonder how his wife is doing since he mentioned she couldn't be there.
  7. New First Presidency

    I thought the way he answered was odd. It's like he treated her like, hey...I know your family Peggy, so you're getting off easy for asking those questions. But I have no idea..but it did come off strange the way he handled. I am glad when I get to hear from the presidency when they aren't reading from a teleprompter and maybe he was stalling in order to come up with some answers to the hard questions. I wish we could hear that more during General Conference as well. Just them, not reading.
  8. New First Presidency

    I should have put a less threatening wink at the end. Pres. Nelson said that Peggy asked a good question.
  9. New First Presidency

    Will someone tell me at what point they saw Pres. Uchtdorf react a certain way? I did see the part where Pres. Holland pats their hands or arms, but not the facial expression of Pres. Uchtdorf. Also, I wanted to express what I thought of the question of transparency. I wish they had mentioned the Gospel Topic Essays, because who can afford the JS Papers, of course, I guess they're online now. But who can actually read such volumes that Pres. Oaks even mentions that they are huge. Shouldn't they mention the essays so that people can see things swiftly, rather than taking years to get through thousands of pages. Which, btw, Larry H. Miller started and put up funds for. It really wasn't the church that started it, that I know of, but glad they did.

    She asked a good question. What, are you going to disagree with a prophet of the Lord?
  11. New First Presidency

    I won? Where's my gold Primary star, I'll stick on my forehead! No, but really Ken, what did I say? Usually I'm in trouble with you, lol! Or you may have been just a little sarcastic!
  12. New First Presidency

    What, they didn't already know? I'll have to watch the press conference again. I really like Pres. Eyring, he seems to be between a rock and a hard place.
  13. President Trump visits Welfare Square

    I'm pretty mum on putting anything on FB that is political too. I seem to always be going against the tide here in Utah. I don't want any enemies amongst my family members, friends or neighbors.
  14. Forgetting to much, and falling to much!

    Love it! I'm sure Papa appreciates some humor right now. I hope this is but a blip on his life map and he'll be good as new, or in better shape soon!
  15. Last Movie You Watched

    I can't say enough good about this movie, the scenes were amazing. And agree that the music and dancing were too! It's a good film, I'd take my mother-in-law to this, she doesn't see very many movies. Or we don't dare take her to what's out there anyway!
