  1. I love the “Doctrine and Covenants Made Harder” and all the other “made harder” books. It isn’t commentary, rather it is a book full of well thought out questions that very rarely come with answers. https://www.amazon.com/Doctrine-Covenants-Made-Harder/dp/0842528725/ref=nodl_ I personally find commentary books boring, the expanded insights provided in commentaries don’t stick with me. the questions posed in the “made harder” books spark genuine interest and it forces the reader to ponder themselves and come up with conclusions.
  2. @strappinglad Couple thoughts: - Repetition is not bad, vain repetition is. If you are saying things because it is what you are suppose to say, that is vain. If you are honestly hoping for what you are saying, that is the correct approach - One thing I have started doing is when I am about to say something like “bless my child so that he will learn to read”, I either replace that or follow it up with things like “please help me to remember to work on the ABCs with him” or “bless me with patience as I try to sit with him and keep him focused on the topic of learning the ABCs.”
  3. I don’t post here often, I’m more of a lurker. There is another Latter-day Saint forum I participate on due to its smaller community, but this particular topic has interested me and I wanted inputs from a larger array of people. Some of my friends have recently been obsessed with this new video out out by a Latter Day Saint on the second coming. I’ve always been uninterested and frankly annoyed by any claims to predict the second coming or becoming enthralled with signs of the times. I’ve found that those that obsess over the second coming do so, ironically, at the expense of all other
  4. Getting rid of poverty may lessen abortions, but it won’t fix the main issue. That abortion is widely accepted as a moral decision to make
  5. I would also like to point out that in the prior two chapters when The Nephite nation was being destroyed and the world was in darkness, God spoke, he only spoke once and everyone heard (3 Nephi 10:1). When we are distressed and seeking God, it is easy to hear him.
  6. I would say that the battle between good and evil is almost entirely a Personal one And not eternal. Once the war is won/lost in ourselves, that is when the “war” ends. Once we have conquered the enemy within us, we can then work on the Kay’s part of Luke 22:32 and strengthen our brethren in their own battles With evil.
