  1. Also My Spotify playlist for the day.
  2. @Travelerwill be tickled pink.
  3. My stewardship is over myself, my spouse and our children at home. None of my children have dared to explain to me how the spirit had prompted them to avoid church services. And if that did hypothetically happen, I’m sure that it would not go over well. Adult children can do as they wish though. One of my sons left the church (served as an AP on his mission too). I gave him some counsel but he is grown man and can do as he wishes. D&C 121:37
  4. The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS is the only church with the true priesthood and living ordinances. It obviously has not cornered the market on truth, or righteousness though.
  5. Trump is getting hammered in court. Nikki Haley will be the default republican nominee if the rulings continue to go against him. What a mess.
  6. I don’t really look at it that way. Its more of a well developed training program than a division of labor. Elohim, I am positive, could have done it all. Probably this is what Jesus Christ was petitioning in Matt 26:39. Elohim was probably thinking. You have already run the 26.19 miles, I wont break the tape for you. You got this. I love you too much to intercede. And from the KFD Discourse, 7 April 1844, as Published in Times and Seasons, p. 614, The Joseph Smith Papers, accessed February 6, 2024 “I saw my Father work out his kingdom with fear and trembling, and I must do the same; and when I get my kingdom I shall present it to my Father, so that he obtains kingdom upon kingdom, and it will exalt his glory, so that Jesus treads in his tracks to inherit what God did before; it is plain beyond disputation, and you thus learn some of the first principles of the gospel, about which so much hath been said. When you climb a ladder, you must begin at the bottom and go on until you learn the last principle; it will be a great while before you have learned the last. It is not all to be comprehended in this world;” President Nelson could run a Temple, Stake Presidency, local ward, or primary class. But it’s more efficient to have the current set up. It gives everyone else the chance to progress through the system as well.
  7. When I hear stories like this I always find myself asking. Why didn’t the father just ask if he could have the Mangos for free or just take the discards home. Or plant a 🥭 tree in the backyard. Take some initiative. Communicate. Plant a tree. Maybe if the father would have done this, and given his son a good example…
  8. You can encourage the missionaries to do the right thing. Reviewing the OP, all i appreciate is hearsay.
  9. I like to sleep at night. And I believe in following the commandments including being honest in dealing with our fellow man. It’s not your duty to get him a more lenient or harsh legal finding. But if you did not directly witness the event then frankly it ain’t your business.
  10. The original in 1988 And Duet with Luke Combs last night. https://x.com/realbrittain/status/1754316190552375724?s=46 Looks like the past 35+ years have been good to her. https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/story-behind-tracy-chapman-fast-car/
  11. I’m pretty sure that the Father wouldn’t ask anyone to do anything that He Himself couldn’t do. John 5:19 He would obviously give opportunities to his children to become more like him. Interestingly, during Christ’s mortal ministry, the Holy Ghost was able to take some time off. Perhaps Christ was doing double duty during (alliteration intended) those years. Perhaps, Jehovah had trained as a ‘holy ghost’ prior to becoming our Savior. “For some reason not fully explained in the scriptures, the Holy Ghost did not operate in the fulness among the Jews during the years of Jesus’ mortal sojourn (John 7:39; 16:7). “ Bible Dictionary - under the heading Holy Ghost. The reflexive property of the following statement would give the possibility some credibility. “Joseph also said that the Holy Ghost is now in a state of Probation which if he should perform in righteousness he may pass through the same or a similar course of things that the Son has.“ Joseph Smith Jr., Nauvoo Illinois August 27, 1843, as recorded by Franklin D. Richards in Scriptural Items. It’s like a missionary. First you are a trainee. Then a junior companion. Then a trainer. Then a district leader. Then a zone leader. Maybe even an assistant to the president.
  12. D&C 138:50 For the dead had looked upon the long absence of their spirits from their bodies as a bondage. How does this apply to the Holy Ghost?
