  1. Thanks, Vort! I needed that!

    How is everybody doing?

    The library is my home away from home, so I'm missing that. Grocery shopping has gotten weird. It's strange to see all the parks empty. I'm missing being able to attend the temple. I'm realizing how much I took that for granted, and now I'm really feeling it. But I'm loving having church at home with just our little family so much that I haven't missed our ward meetings. Is that bad? I'm not sure.

    Prayer: when you don't want to ask

    I finished reading Why Isn't God Answering Me? by Gerald Lund. While I wouldn't say it addressed my issues above, it did have some great ideas. I found his analysis of D&C 121 in regard to this topic very interesting.

    Prayer: when you don't want to ask

    My thinking has been, God’s will is going to be done regardless. And what I want, even if I think it is right and good, is not always what he wants. In fact, I’m learning it very rarely is. His ways are higher than my ways and all that. This is why I struggle with asking. Any insights are appreciated.

    I identify so much with this. I, too, struggle with prayer. I feel your hurt because I've felt it myself. You are definitely not alone in this. Just wanted to let you know that. I wish I knew the answer.

    What's the last book you read?

    I am really loving Volume 2 of Saints. There are so many details about this time period I didn't know. Like the infamous beginnings of the Salt Lake Tribune. 🤣
  7. I saw this on a Facebook page called "Come Follow Me Daily." It reminded me of my own situation and this thread. Hope it helps.

    Ward Boundary Changes

    Considering that the constellations, themselves, are completely arbitrary. That's smart. 👍

    Taking precession into account, you probably aren't.
  10. I know exactly how you feel. Been there, done that (though without the CF component). It’s okay to feel what you’re feeling. It will pass. Some things that helped me was letting people in my life know that I was pregnant. They are great people, and their reactions were perfect and helped me remember the joy of it. Also, the Savior knows how you feel and can help you bear the burden. Rely on Him. And remember that these things will give you experience and be for your good.
  11. I know. And i was dead serious... as always... 😜
  12. Oh, fine. I guess it's a bit too text heavy for a meme. 😄 But my inner girly girl wants to take it and put some sort of decorative border around it. My practical side just wants to post it on facebook.
  13. I love this so much! It should be a meme.
  14. I like them so far. I don't think they're perfect. But i feel the spirit as i watch. They are a vast improvement from the living scripture cartoons i grew up with, and my kids seem to enjoy them.

    What's the last book you read?

    Wow! Brave of you to read that! I'm familiar enough with the history that I don't think I could stomach it. Reminds me of the time my husband recommended The Hot Zone. I told him to go jump in a lake.
