  1. Can someone please explain the scriptures in Genesis 6:1-4! I am confused on who the 'Sons of God' are, and what it all means that they are mating with the daughters of men?! I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I got in a discussion with a friend the other day; we are both confused about this chapter. So any insight would be wonderful. Thank you!
  2. So, I have been dating my boyfriend for about 7 months now, and we both are LDS. We had a slip up and were not chaste in our relationship. My boyfriend has already talked to his bishop about it, and started the repentance process. I am in the middle of moving from to a different ward so I have to wait till' my records are in the Ward so I haven't started the process. Now that my boyfriend has talked to the bishop he said we are on "different levels" now. I took it as he was boasting and almost he was better than I. He said this is what his Bishop stated to him, because he has started his process; I haven't. I am feeling a bit down that I can't start the process yet, and would like someone to explain the "different levels" phrase. Does this mean that I am not as good? Does this mean our relationship is at risk? Shouldn't we be supporting each other no matter what in this difficult time not comparing? Thank you

    Depression keeping from being active in calling

    Awesome post WillowTheWisp! You said it all so beautifully, and I appreciate you taking the time to comment on mine! I am really contemplating talking to my bishop about needing some time away from the calling (to be released) until I can get on a medication plan that will work. I would hate to leave the head leaders hanging. It's nice to know that there is support on lds.net! Big Thanks!

    Thanks MightyNancy! Luckily I am wanting for my insurance card in the mail so I get start figuring out what med combination would be the best for me. I haven't had insurance for three years, and so it's been a financial strain to get consistent help! You are all so sweet and helpful! Thank you!

    Depression keeping from being active in calling

    Roseslipper: I am 24 years old ( Why do you ask) cullenh: I currently am not on any medication, because I decided to wean myself of the lithium I was taking. It was a complete nightmare! I can't even explain to you how out of it and zombie like I was. I also gained a horrendous amount of weight from all depression medication I was on. Which made my depression worse. Bini: thank you for your post. Would you mind if I PM you sometime about your personal situation? I currently don't know any LDS members in my ward that are going through this, and it always helps to have the support of those who understand. I do worry that I am headed for a low. I currently have been seeing a lovely LDS counselor since December and she helps a lot.
  7. I know this was posted earlier I believe, but I think my situation is a little different. Hopefully if it's a repeat you can just bypass this post. Well, I have struggled with depression since childhood and have gotten help on and off along the way. Lately, my depression has gotten significantly worse, and it's causing me to miss my church meetings! I am a nursery assistant in my ward, and this will be the third time I haven't shown up in three months. I also have extremely bad anxiety when I feel I am trapped in a building with no real way to "escape". I have been on my knees all morning praying and listening to hymns but still don't feel 100%. What am I doing wrong? I feel awful about not attending church and my mother makes me feel even worse since she truly doesn't understand. On a side note: I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder last July but never felt it was correct...maybe I am wrong. Currently I am not on any medications. Just looking for some advice and guidance and love at this time. Thank you all and god bless!

    What financial things does the church help with?

    Thanks Pam...do you know if they would help him with school so he can retrain for a career that doesn't require such physical strain on his body; if he can't get financial aid?
  9. I had a question regarding what things would a Bishop help someone financially with in the ward that is struggling? My brother has said he is going to ask for financial help with some bills since he is unemployed from a knee surgery. What things are not usually helped with including medical bills, school expenses, rent, various life bills? He asked and I sadly didn't have an answer for him on what the procedure is like. Thanks you guys!

    Sealing Cancellation

    Haha, well mysticmorini...I definitely don't want to be sealed to my ex for time and all eternity; so it's a positive thing. ) My girlfriend has also agreed she would rather be the only one sealed to me, and I agree with her statement.

    Sealing Cancellation

    Thanks everyone for your advice. Now, she will never see my letter I write and vice versa? Will I have to do my own cancellation of the sealing with I am engaged to my girlfriend? ) Congrats LaurelTree on your set date!

    Sealing Cancellation

    Hello LDS Forum, This is my first time posting on this site; so hopefully you can give me some advice on the Sealing Cancellation topic. I was previously married to my Ex-Wife for five years and have been divorced from her mutually since June 08'. She recently called me this weekend to give me a head's up that my Bishop would be contacting me with her wishes to get our Sealing Cancelled. Now, I don't have one issue with this; as I am not in love with her, and have found a new sweetie that we have been dating for a year. The problem I have is that at the end of our marriage she was talking to another man online that she knew growing up for her hometown. She would lock herself in our bedroom and talk to this person on the phone for hours, and would send emails everyday "as friends". Well, let's just say that three weeks before we were officially divorced she already had her wedding dress picked out to marry the man she was talking to on the phone. Then, was married to him immediately after our divorce in her Bishop's office. I found out later she was talking to him for months after I tried to go to counseling with her, but we just couldn't make it work. My question is how do I write a response letter to the First Presidency when I receive hers that would depict her lack of taking our temple vows seriously and having an emotional affair with a man clear across the country while still being married. I plan on marrying my sweetie in a few years, and want to not be sealed to that wretched woman. Should I bring all this up in the letter, and make the point to say I want it cancelled just as much!? What will her letter say? I hope all this makes sense, but I don't want to come across as bitter/that I still love her. Since I do NOT! :)
