    Elder Oaks

    So who wrote the essay on polygamy? Or several others. Some don't believe these essays come from the presidency too. Maybe because they aren't providing who wrote them.

    In Oak's talk he mentions priestcraft of those articles we read that doesn't say where it came from or the author. Well, as Bill Reel mentions in his current podcast about conference. What about the Gospel Topics Essays that don't have the author listed???

    Words of Joseph Smith

    Kennngo, I didn't read the OP as well as I should have. I thought these were Joseph's words that he had written, not the notes of someone listening to him. My bad.

    Is it time to end Testimony meetings?

    https://www.lds.org/ensign/1998/03/i-have-a-question/i-have-a-question?lang=eng Searched for when F&T Mtg began, and this came up. Glen M. Leonard was my former Stake President from years ago, so pretty cool that he wrote this article. In the article it states that they held them on Thursday nights. I wonder if the church should give wards this option? I like it! Of course things have changed, we don't speak in tongues, which to me remains to a mystery. How speaking in tongues is no longer being done in the church, why is that? Is it because it was never real, but made up gibberish? A topic for another thread perhaps? But do like the thought for those that need community, of meeting together on another day besides Sunday. And discuss how to help those that need it, or do service out in the community together. Wouldn't that be cool! I know once a year the Stakes do this. And usually it's weeding or doing yard work at the church, in my previous wards. On occassion it stretched out further to nonLDS church entities. I wonder if this could happen.

    You'd be surprised, but that's not lifers on the board.

    Ah, I see. Of course, makes perfect sense now. Someone taking notes while he's speaking, totally how I take notes and then go back and redo them so I can comprehend them later. I guess I misunderstood and thought this was Joseph writing this down. And it reminded me of my brother when he texts and is drunk.
  8. It appears to me to be some cover up. I'm amazed at the work you continue to do to get to the bottom of this, Abulafia. I couldn't do it.

    I think Joseph could have been drinking while writing this, and I'm not being sarcastic. He did drink and no-one on this board should deny that fact.

    Nehor Rants About Online Dating

    To think of all those LDS singles, that are missing out on some wonderful people, it makes me sad. I have a single friend that is older than me, she is waiting to meet her husband in the hereafter. I don't know why she can't go out and do meetups, and forget what religion they belong to. Look at the whole person.

    11:05 on the video with Packer, is so sad. Those poor LGBTQ men who had to sit there and listen to this, and pretty sure was a reason for some of them taking their lives. The year was 1976, pretty sure this contributed to a friend's suicide that was gay and in the closet in high school. I'm sick.

    can I ask for some prayer please

    If I didn't know better, I'd think this is Rodheadlee and his wife! But then again...

    Last Movie You Watched

    A friend keeps telling me to watch "Lars and the Real Girl", and finally I stumbled across it On Demand. Such a good movie, rated PG13. Watching now and it's great so far. And love how the community in this movie step up to the plate to help this man. It's a 2007 movie, with Ryan Gosling. He did amazing!

    Is it time to end Testimony meetings?

    I was just thinking this when I read your comment, I think I do like personal stories better than testifying the same words over and over again without much info, but then again, maybe that would be nice too as long as it was genuine. I like the personal stories that combine with possibly how the Saviour helps them, or guides others to help them perhaps. Or what people do to overcome their trials. I remember my in-active sister that came to my youngest's blessing, and it was F&T Mtg, I turned to look at her behind me and tears were flowing during my bishop's testimony. He had talked about a really difficult trial he had had in life. And I was wondering why she was so touched, but I never asked. The one testimony I lost my patience with was a woman that took the whole time up preaching to us, and a "look at me" kind of testimony. Or I took it that way. Maybe it wasn't that bad, but she went on & on probably a good 15 minutes, I think.
  16. I've been trying to follow this thread, but may have missed it. Is there any evidence that the Miles were involved, it doesn't appear to be the case. But it's bad enough these poor children were abused so horrifically.

    LDS Social Services

    To the bold, curious what you found. My MIL has used these for so many years I can't count. My husband hates the smell on her, and her house, and my SIL won't get in a car with her, which is pretty lame.

    April 2019 Conference

    Haha! I hate the smell of mothballs, and I could share a joke my husband tells about them, but won't!

    April 2019 Conference

    As much as I complained about it, I think many will miss it. Pres. Monson is probably rolling over in his grave. I kind of think the personality of the church is being sucked out.
  20. Kenngo, I quit my job but that's a long story, I wasn't capable of handling some really troubled students, both have been suspended. That left me with a great option to leave my job as a Safe Intervention Assistant. But my job made me grow in many ways, so grateful for that. You've had your job for a long time! And didn't quit! So good for you! With the unemployment rate so low, I'm sure you'll find another job. I hope it's in something that will your help your talents shine. Either in law, or in the book world? So would you be staying in the Utah County area still? I guess it depends on your work. We are kind of both in the same place, what will life bring us, haha.
  21. Oh, I apologise about that. My worry is people want the Second Coming, and want the world to burn up, not saying you do PaPa. My worry is that people won't do what is needed to prevent disaster, because they want to move onto the next life, perhaps?

    Which talks inspired you?

    My favorite was Elder Uchtdorf's. But want to add that I think the talks stating to go after those that are inactive is working! My ministering partner finally returned my call, or texted, not called. She said it was because she thought I was calling the wrong sister because she hadn't updated her LDS tools site. And it didn't show me as her partner before. Now she wants to meet and go over ways to help our sisters on our route. Now if it were me and I received a call like mine, I would have called me back! Don't know if I can believe her. But I'll bet she heard the conference talk and wants to do better perhaps. Also, our ministering home teachers are texting and visiting now, like never before!
  23. With the current administration, I don't. Especially when it tries nixing some good environmental laws that the previous admin put in. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/03/how-trump-is-changing-science-environment/
