    In case it turns out you are wrong...

    Had my reading, went pretty good. A few things he said could have been from my FB photos. Like my mother's hair being brunette and short. And he mentioned a dog being with my parents which was a small lap dog and could be a lot like a Shitzu. I thought of my little Yorkie that was hit by a car and died. And on FB there are a couple of photos of Biscuit he would have to have searched in albums for. But pretty sweet to think all dogs do go to heaven. And he mentioned my mother loving to cook, but she worked a lot so hadn't had a lot of time to cook. My dad who was on disability later in life would cook a lot. So these things were disappointing. There were a few things that he said and one thing that happened that gave me hope. Right off the bat he said my mom came through and she said she really liked my hair and just that morning I had been worried I'd fried my hair because of coloring it and was worried about it falling out. And then he said that my mom wanted to comment on my childhood, and he said it was that I loved to dance and twirl around the house and was in a dance group. Well that is right, and maybe the majority of girls are like this, so there's that. But I was an oddball and would dance in slips to the stereo all around the living room when I was like 7 or 8. Then in the middle he mentioned that I had been going through a faith crisis, and trying to figure out what my path is to be. He nailed that! There is nothing on FB about that! And he didn't ask me anything about myself, I was pretty silent the whole time. The only thing he'd ask was a couple of names and who they were, other than that he said he preferred I didn't offer things at all. And he nailed that both my father-in-law and my dad died from heart conditions. My dad a heart attack, and FIL had heart failure, so there's that. Then toward the very end, a song came on the stereo that I had picked for my dad's funeral CD I made. It was absolutely awesome and I'm hoping it was not a coincidence. And no, he didn't have all songs on the stereo that had to do with loved ones moving one, I was paying attention to the songs. It was "Hero" by Mariah Carey. I'll post for your listening pleasure!
  2. I'd love that. Truly would. My husband and I are attending Sacrament today, and I believe it will be more Jesus centered because of Christmas. I'm sorry I've said that I don't see Jesus a whole lot throughout my membership, I know he's there in a roundabout way, but temple covenants and missionary work seem to reign supreme. I guess the other faiths only have Jesus and Joseph Smith added all these other things and they are reiterated over and over with Jesus being a given I guess. Now I wonder if the church dropped the ball on not studying His life even more and speaking or praising him like other faiths because why is it that so many exLDS go Atheist or agnostic? I don't think many nonLDS Christians totally quit believing in Jesus when they leave a certain organization. That is pretty significant wouldn't you think? But as you and Garden Girl say over and over, your wards do emphasize and talk about Jesus. So maybe I'm totally off the mark, except when I hear others like Gina state the same thing.

    Yay, I actually get to use the term "strawman", I seldom know too many of these descriptions, but this fits to the "t". I wasn't touting that the podcast guy is legit, but I think the woman he's interviewing or has on the podcast could be.

    Thanks 💕, let me know what you think. With my niece being a Medium I tried hard not to be skeptical since that would put her in a bad spot. But reading her reviews says to me she isn't. She gave me a reading over the phone a few years ago, she's in California, and I thought she knows me too well and my parents are her grandparents, but with all of that she said some astounding things. And she's known since childhood that spirits talk to her, but it's in the last few years that she came out with it. I wanted to go to someone that doesn't know me to see what they come up with. I know they'll be able to get a lot of info from my FB profile so if it's going to be that kind of information and nothing more, I'll know I've been had.

    So since there are those that do these cold readings, there isn't room for the real ones? Please listen or read the following link on Mediums, and hopefully you will show me respect by doing so. Because hey, I looked at what you gave me and read all about cold readings, which helped me gear up for tomorrow!! https://skeptiko.com/julie-beischel-research-after-death-communication-371/

    Mary, the Mother of Christ

    http://www.womeninthebible.net/bible-people/mary-of-nazareth/ This was an interesting read and it made me feel like I was there. It mentions further on almost 3/4 of the article that she was a peasant girl.

    Mary, the Mother of Christ

    JL, the quote from from Ezra T. Benson doesn't mince words: Ezra Taft Benson (Mormonism's 13th presiden-prophet): “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaims that Jesus Christ is the Son of God in the most literal sense. The body in which He performed His mission in the flesh was sired by that same Holy Being we worship as God, our Eternal Father. Jesus was not the son of Joseph, nor was He begotten by the Holy Ghost” [The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, 7.]

    Mary, the Mother of Christ

    I caught that and edited. Thanks! ETA: Isn't there a Christmas song with the words "immaculate conception". Bugging me, and can't think of the name.

    Mary, the Mother of Christ

    I guess because Mary is the daughter of God? But you know what? I've often wondered if Mary could have been stoned to death for being pregnant and not married and maybe this whole thing is made up. But I still believe in Jesus Christ, or holding onto believe with both hands. So go figure. Quotes below from this site: http://www.stephanielandsem.com/2013/12/unwed-and-pregnant/ If a man marries a girl who is claimed to be a virgin, and then finds that she is not, “they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her father’s house and there her townsmen shall stone her to death” (Deut. 22:20) If a man has relations within the walls of a city with a maiden who is betrothed, “you shall bring them both out to the gate of the city and there stone them to death.” (Deut. 22:23) but if they were in the open fields, “the man alone shall die”, because if it was in the open fields, “though the betrothed maiden may have cried out for help, there was no one to come to her aid.” (Deut. 22:25-27) If the maiden in question is not betrothed, the punishment is different. “The man who had relations with her shall pay the girl’s father fifty silver shekels and take her as his wife, because he has deflowered her. Moreover, he may not divorce her as long as he lives.” (Deut. 22:29)

    Mary, the Mother of Christ

    Seems to have been heavily taught in the early church days. It's repulsive to me as well, especially when in the non-LDS Christian world they only know it as a virgin birth. The quotes below by prophets/apostles are probably stemming from the Adam/God theory that BY purported for 30 years. So that is a lot of years for quotes to formulate, I guess. https://beliefmap.org/mormonism/mormonism-teaches-god-and-mary-sexually-produced-jesus Mormonism says God impregnated Mary by sex Mormonism teaches that God is made of flesh and bone and, while not articulated in any standard works, Mormon authorities have taught that Mary was impregnated with Jesus through physical sex with God. Mormon Authorities JOSEPH WAS ONLY MARY'S SECOND HUSBAND Mormon Authorities JESUS WAS NOT BEGOTTEN OF THE HOLY GHOST Mormon Authorities GOD AND MARY ARE TOGETHER JESUS'S LITERAL BIOLOGICAL PARENTS Mormonism's Official Curriculum Material etc. Mormon Authority

    It's my own money, so I definitely won't be spending much, although I share a bank account with my husband, I wanted it to be my expense since he's not happy about me going either. 😞

    Yes, because I'm a terrible conduit, seriously. I hope I haven't hijacked this poor thread too much.

    I'd like to know if I'm going to get Alzheimer's early like my mother, and I'd like to know how my parents are doing on the other side, and what my future holds, but that's asking a lot. And awhile back I never would have believed in Mediums, but my niece and my feelings that our loved ones do like to come through convinces. I don't get how some of you probably wouldn't think twice about someone coming to someone in the night or you don't think twice about Joseph getting visits as well. The veil is thin, remember?
  15. I was wondering if the prevention of Alzheimer's is okay for a medical card? I should add, if it's shown that early Alzheimer's runs in the family. And wouldn't we want to prevent Alzheimer's anyway, so why is this law so enept?!? There is an epidemic of this horrific disease. But oh the money the medical providers will make in treating those with Alzheimer's, not to mention the pharmaceuticals who produce meds that for my mother only made her sick and she couldn't stand to use them. Had cannabis been around, so so much better for her and for the agitation that Alzheimer's patients go through, as well as getting their lives back to a fairly normal existence. https://www.sciencealert.com/marijuana-compound-thc-removes-toxic-alzheimer-protein-from-brain

    I'll let you know right here on this board, on this thread, haha! If Lucian doesn't mind.
  17. I say we take our lives in our own hands, doctors and pharmaceutical companies are probably so afraid of healthy people which make them lose money, IMO.
  18. This may have been posted already, but noticed it on Bill's FB page. https://www.dropbox.com/s/iqrggr1shrkzpgb/Transcript of Bill Reel's Disciplinary Proceedings.pdf?dl=0&fbclid=IwAR06M8jsb226dpbvP For those that dislike listening to podcasts.....
  19. Over on the reddit forum someone posted a made-up pic of NNN up in the ceiling with his head poking out with a mic and then NNN replied and said that they weren't far off. Boy, very curious to know what NNN did.

    Yeah, and I wasn't able to edit "I'm made an a appointment", haha. I figure if we all believe, or LDS believe that our loved ones are only a thin veil away why can't we believe that some are given the gift to have our loved ones visit these Mediums and be able to communicate to their loved ones here on earth? My niece in California is also a Medium, and she's got many, many reviews that she isn't a phony. I've had a phone visit with her in her Medium self, and she did well. But she also knows my parents, since they are her grandparents. So I thought it would be fun to go to a person that doesn't know me. I'm hoping he is the real deal.
  21. Thanks!! I needed to add to that long post, that my husband started on Percocet long ago, and sadly he's still using them for the pain. Recently the pain is worse so he's back at it again. I'm trying to get him to use my oil and he has tried it, but still relies heavily on opioids. This week he's going in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy, second time around. That's the scary thing with opioids, the addictiveness. And the harm on the body and making the body not fight the pain on it's own naturally. I understand the immediate need. But too much over a long time, is far worse and the body forgets how. At least that's what I read recently. Oops, I need to quit for now, too long.
