  1. I’m not seeing why this needs to be apologized for

    Missionary work

    I’ve been listening to a book on the history of Christianity throput throughout the world. It has me thinking about missionary work for our Church and how we’ve barely scratched the surface. I want to do my part to share the gospel and it seems nothing I do has any impact whatsoever. What can we do to actually impact the missionary effort? Especially since I’m not a young rooster any more

    Video games

    I was at a ward activity with my daughter and I overheard a discussion about a young man who moved to school and spends so much time playing video games it's hurting his life and testimony. it made me consider another man I know from growing up who still plays lots of video games. Often i see his wife struggling with their children while he is in a game. It makes me wonder, is this a wide spread problem? How many mission age young men are impeding their progress in life because of video games? How many men are neglecting their families over them? I've enjoyed a good game from time to time in the past. But it seems foreign to me to spend so much time gaming and neglecting weighted matters

    Matthew 2 & Luke 2

    Thought it might Be good to start a thread on this weeks study soft Come Follow Me. Anything interesting you’ve learned? Anything occur to you? i have to say this years study has been completely different for me. I’m noticing things I’ve never seen before. And I’m writing things down. I’ll write down my thoughts on what I’ve read and how it applies to me and the. Record the miracles that occured. It’s been insightful

    Matthew 2 & Luke 2

    I was just reading Luke 2 during lunch at work. I don’t have my notebook but the Spirit was strong. Making it clear that these events did happen. another couple of things I noticed: there was still quite a bit of revelation being poured out upon the Jews at this time. despite the angelic instruction preparing them, Mary and Joseph both seemed surprised by what was happening with the shepherds, at the circumcision, and when they found Jesus at the temple. They pondered a lot in their hearts. It seems because they weren’t sure what to make of it

    Mormon Helping Hands

    Perhaps we should call them the helping hands of Christ. After all the whole point of the name change is to emphasize the saviors name. And to make it clear to people that we are his church. That we belong to no one else.
  14. Been studying some histories of Christianity. Monasticism seems to be a very important function in Christianity until the reformation. where did this phenomenon come from? I see nothing in the scriptures or the Jewish tradition that would lead us to conclude that God was directing this. any idea?

    Video games

    Wish I had realized all this years ago. I never really noticed it before but when I was actively gaming, I was incredibly anxious, depressed, and had zero self esteem.

    Video games

    I used to play video games alot. I've slowly stopped over the years. But I can tell you the time I wasted with games I can't get back. I wonder how many blessings I've lost by wasting that time

    Stand in Holy Places

    I was reading Elder Rasbands conference talk to prepare for Elders Quorum this Sunday. He mentions the first thing we need to do to overcome fear is to stand in Holy Places. one of the examples he gives is the home. How do we make our homes a holy place?

    How was two hour church?

    The spirit was strong. In Elders quorum we actually listened to Elder Rasbands talk in its entirety before discussing it in depth. We never would have had time for that before. In sacrament we had three speakers and an intercede musical number which shockly was If you could Hie to Kolob. In the elders quorum lesson we also found many examples relevant to the talk from our come follow me lessons from Matt 1 and Luke 1

    If it takes you away from Christ then they both are bad

    Oh I have no doubt that there’s much more to the epidemic than that. I just think that without Spiritual healing that it can never be solved

    Stand in Holy Places

    Does it matter if it feels holy or whether it is holy?
  22. Been reviewing Elder Holland’s talk. Does anyone have any experience with reconciling family members with each other or with the Church and Christ? Anyone willing to share?

    All the more reason to preach the gospel. If people have the joy of the gospel in their life and the hope it brings, they won’t be turning to heroin or other substances

    Missionary work

    It’s a major problem and a lot of people don’t want to pay attention to it. My sister in law does fundraising for Mission 21. People don’t want to donate to help victims of sex trafficking. But the SPCA can get tons of donations to take care of abandoned pets (and I don’t think that’s bad). We should take care of our animals but it seems to me that we should take care of our fellow man also if not more

    I think what’s happening is the wicked are getting more wicked and the righteous are getting more righteous. The people between are shrinking in numbers
