  1. I love kitties! I'd post pics of ours, but that would take up too much room. We have four! You can find them in my gallery: TheNewChristinas Gallery ยป LDS Mormon Network
  2. Thank you, FairChild. I will see about having a blessing of comfort done. If my HT doesn't respond to that, I will ask my Bishop to reassign me. I just was given new VT's and am meeting them Thursday! I am so happy! :)
  3. Greetings and welcome to the forums, Melanie! :)
  4. Greetings and welcome to the forums! :)
  5. Thank you, Arletta! I might just email the Bishop and explain what is going on with me. I don't want him to think I'm abandoning the church, as I've missed a month straight!
  6. Oh. I didn't know that. I know it's been a long time since I've had my own domain and someone found where I lived doing that! Luckily, it was because he was concerned for my well-being and had the police do a wellness check on me and not that he was a stalker.
  7. If you have your blog hosted on your own domain, people can find out who owns that domain by doing a whois search, I believe. I do think you can set it up when you register your domain name that the information is private, for an additional fee.
  8. Greetings, everyone! I'm not sure where to start. I was baptized in 2006, but went inactive shortly after. Earlier this year, the Spirit prompted me to go back. I have not been able to go to Sacrament Meeting or the other meetings, every week, due to illness, though. It just seems if it's not one thing going on with me, it's another. My Visiting Teachers and Home Teacher have been over once since I've returned to the ward. I did meet with the Bishop a while ago about some personal issues and the possibility of me getting my Patriarchal Blessing. I am feeling very lost, in many ways, not just spiritually, and feel that a PB could help me immensely. I'm to have a lesson from my HT about PB's but he's not been here in a while. I know he knows, because he did come over to do a healing blessing with a member of the Elder's Quorum and I brought it up to him. I finally emailed my RS President and told her I haven't seen my VT's in a while. I understand that summer is a time where people go on vacations, etc, though. Come to find out, my VT's are having a hard time getting together to see me, as one is frequently away on business. So, I understand that. I emailed my HT and asked him about the PB lesson and he said we'd discuss it when I was at church. Well, I was sick and didn't go. No word from him. Now, I've feeling as if I'm unworthy of a PB or even just a visit from my teachers. I don't know if my Bishop knows any of what is going on. I don't want to bother him with such trivial things, though. Should I email him and let him know that I haven't met with him again about the PB(Oh yea, I was to set up a meeting with him after I had the lesson), because I'm still waiting on my HT? Or does he think I'm unworthy, too? I explained to my RS President what was going on with my attendance and she's understanding. She says that Heavenly Father knows that I am trying to go to Sacrament, etc, and that I shouldn't be feeling unworthy of my VT's or HT. Any advice would be great. I just hope my post makes sense as I'm very good at confusing people, especially myself! LOL! Love and Laughter, Christina
  9. I would suggest using a pen name. Otherwise I think it's a great idea!
  10. Hi Christine! Welcome to the church and to the site! I'm a convert, too. Was baptized in 2006! :)
  11. My hubby and I own a dog and four cats. I am the cat person and he, the dog person. Although I love all my furbabies, I tend to favor the cats. Two of them are anti-social, but the other two are loverboys. They'll cuddle with us and sleep with us. My oldest cat is 15 and he'll come up to my husband when he gets home from work and rub up all over him! Thus my husband has to pick him up and he'll just cuddle and purr like crazy! He even gives back massages! It's cute, if you are close to him while he is on the mantle or bookshelf, and your back is turned, he will keep kneading on you with his paws. It's so cute and we just call it massaging! The other loverboy, is my cuddlebug. He even has his own pillow next to me on the bed. The dog, loves to play with my husband and be held like a baby by him. As for me, she doesn't like being held by me, although she more or less guards me at night. She will sleep at the foot of the bed, sometimes even guarding me from the cats! LOL!
  12. Unfortunately, once you get married his debt will become your debt, too. I've had a friend who ended up paying her husband's child support when he lost his job. You are wise to wait until it's paid off. Also, bankruptcy will not absolve student loans.
  13. Greetings, LadyGirl! My husband is an atheist and I converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints shortly after we were married. He has no interest in the church, whatsoever. All I can do is pray and be an example to him. My take on marriage to an unbeliever is found in 1 Corinthians. I would think the same could apply to a husband that is inactive in the church. "Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a Christian man has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to continue living with him, he must not leave her. And if a Christian woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him. For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy. (But if the husband or wife who isn't a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases the Christian husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.) Don't you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you? And don't you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you? 17Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you, and remain as you were when God first called you. This is my rule for all the churches." -- 1 Corinthians 7: 12-17
