    Bridesmaid for non-member wedding

    I would mainly worry about length of the dress, (knee-length) and then ask if the store sells matching boleros or some other shoulder-covering add-on that either matches or coordinates with the dress. It would be a lot cheaper to go that route as opposed to having the dress altered to add sleeves. Definitely let the bride know ASAP, so that she can keep you in mind as she looks over possible dress options.

    I lost my dad today.

    Hugs and prayers of comfort going out to you and your family.

    Smithmas

    Weird. Never heard of it, although I've heard of families who do something small to commemorate it, like a special Family Home Evening lesson or cake for dessert. Nothing at all on par with a full-blown Christmas celebration though.

    If you were not LDS what religion would you be?

    Eastern Orthodox.
  6. Perhaps I've missed it in my reading of the thread, but, while I agree there will be polygamy in the Celestial Kingdom (there have been thousands, if not millions, of polygamous marriages throughout the history of the Earth that have zero to do with Joseph Smith), but where is the source of the teaching that NEW polygamous marriages will be formed? Where is the source of the teaching that some of us may find ourselves being required to expand our marriages to include other persons? I ask, because the ONLY time I've come across this teaching is in forums like this, or people making comments in Sunday School. I've never come across it in my scripture study or in any Conference talks. I wonder if we're all just getting worked up over a teaching that perhaps has no reason to be taught.

    What's the Name of Your Ward?

    I think they're trying to move away from numbers. My current stake switched from numbers to names shortly before we moved here, and my previous stake just renamed their numbered wards a couple of months ago.
  8. I think, after listening to Pres. Uchtdorf's talk in Priesthood session, we should be less concerned about who a specific talk is or isn't directed toward, and be asking ourselves "Lord, is it I?"

    How to respond

    "Why are you still nursing?" "Because we are." If somebody is being a busybody I don't feel obligated to spell out my life choices to them.

    Choir dress

    I actually was pleased that the MEN were allowed to be (slightly) colorful for once. It's always brightly colored women next to men in dark suits and subdued ties. They still had the dark suits, but I loved the brightly colored ties. :)
  11. I pinkpuffyheart LOVED this talk. The whole "Why should we help poor people who are poor because of their own choices?" came up in my Sunday School class recently (I teach the 14-15 year old class, all boys). I pointed them to King Benjamin's address, and how "we're all beggars". And I loved what he said near the end: "I may not be my brother's keeper, but I AM my brother's brother."
  12. I love it that Conference was kicked off with a talk just overflowing with the teachings and examples of the Savior. Perfect. :)

    Cub Scout Help!

    Is the Cub Scout manual online by any chance? My son has completely lost his, and we have just a couple more things to sign off so he can get his first award tomorrow night (bear? wolf? I can't remember). I won't be able to physically sign them off, but I'd like to be able to honestly say we did them.

    Crazy outfits

    So that's where my husband's missing socks went.
  15. How so? How is providing someone with the information so they can make informed consent censoring?
