  1. I would hope for this also, I so wanted to visit when my husband and I went to Nauvoo one year, but it wasn't in the cards.
  2. I would bet they would, especially since they've turned Provo's tabernacle into a temple and rebuilt the Nauvoo temple. I'd think there would be a lot of excitement at bringing the Kirtland Temple back into the church...as a temple.
  3. I'd love to give you business, maybe you could PM me. If you think it's a store I'd like to shop at or isn't too far from Davis County. Or maybe that wasn't what was meant in your post at all. I do relate to some of your feelings, I too suffer with some self doubt when it comes to most everything, and getting hired in employment especially.
  4. BYU Caffeine is APPROVED - Breaking news!

    I just heard on the news, that BYUI was asked if they were going to follow suit, and they said "no".
  5. I listened to a podcast with John Hamer and he mentioned the same thing, that Community of Christ wanted the church to have them to help preserve them better than they themselves have means to do. And I'm sure the CoC could have received a lot more money for it, since they could have sold pieces of it, not that they would ever do such a thing though.
  6. BYU Caffeine is APPROVED - Breaking news!

    I could never understand the decaffeinated diet coke. It's still got the unknown chemicals, and nutrisweet, and leaving out the best part caffeine!
  7. BYU Caffeine is APPROVED - Breaking news!

    http://gephardtdaily.com/top-stories/byu-to-sell-coke-after-60-year-cola-ban/ I didn't realize that at one time caffeine was okay years ago.

    I think the day the church said it's not the caffeine in coffee but something else...is the day we were closer to having BYU offering it in it's vending machines. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/01/mormon-caffeine-policy-cl_n_1848098.html
  9. CNN article on Mormon dating issues

    Agree, and if the single women only hold out for an LDS man to take her to the temple, there's no guarantee that he will be good for her. I've read some pretty horrid stories about the situation turning bleak when the bride finds out her now husband isn't what he seeemed to be. And is into porn, or had other habits that weren't healthy or treated her poorly after they wed. I think there are some amazing men that aren't LDS out there and these single women are missing out, even to the point of going to their death and having never married because they're holding out for the LDS man.
  10. Mormon Newsroom and Suicide

    He did have a boyfriend, several years ago. I'm not disappointed though. To each their own.
  11. Mormon Newsroom and Suicide

    Totally agree, I shouldn't be so negative, now hopefully with these steps forward it continually moves ahead. BTW, I wonder what the interview with Elder Christofferson's brother is going to be like. http://www.sltrib.com/religion/local/2017/09/17/mormon-apostles-gay-brother-shares-his-religious-journey-preaches-love-for-his-former-partner-faith-and-family/
  12. Mormon Newsroom and Suicide

    Agree, and add in the November policy and several quotes by church leaders through the years, then you have a recipe for disaster for LDS gay individuals feeling triggered.
  13. Church whitewashing and hiding history

    Over and over all of you on here that had problems with people like me for apparently not knowing my church history...there is a reason. Hopefully, I don't ever read on this board how some in the church never read enough church history books because it was all in them. I guess you were wrong...everything but polygamy might have been. Since according to this podcast...Leonard J. Arrington, a church historian, was told by the brethren, to skip putting anything to do with polygamy, in his book. Bravo to Daniel Petersen and the Hales for their honesty in reporting this. I'd say it to the church leaders too, but it's too painful yet...or maybe just to Pres. Uchtdorf, since his relative by marriage is Michael Ash...I bet it made a difference for his comment that everything, or nearly everything is to be made available and transparent in church history. He knows it's a losing battle with the internet to keep it from the members, especially the youth.
  14. oops Women

    Makes me think it might have something to do with polygamy in the next life if they don't want women to know. But that's what I do when I don't get the facts up front, start guessing.
