    Was excited until now.

    Proud Mother, Forgive them for their lack of understanding how this missionary is one the milestones in young adults' lives Smile along with them that your son's enrichment is far more super than they would have at this age Sing along that your son will go as budding missionary and comes back as an apprecative, wise, and respectful son.

    Hello.

    Welcome to the junior member club!
  3. Thank you for the wonderful description of this speaker's voice. Next time when I watch him on the screen, I will remember your statement and that would make me very happy!

  5. Due to my deafness, I read body language. Beside watching him speak through closed-captioning, I also looked at how President Uchtorf's body language matched how his facial expression was as he spoke. First of all I see that being a pilot for a long time had given him the skill of calmness through all types of weather in the skies. Secondly, his ability to remain calm had given him humbleness while Uchtorf spoke carefully. His facial expression had displayed his shinning happiness. Our Lord had led him to the right career which had given him the gift of a remarkable speaker as one of the valuable members of our church. We, including President Monson, are very lucky to have him other than Eyring, too. However, tell me, readers - if you don't mind - what was President Uchtorf's voice like? Does it match his body language and facial expression well? Smiling...

    The Affect of Anti-Mormon Propaganda

    Much appreciated for your feedbacks! Yes, I am keeping my mind open so that I could understand my Catholic friend better and vice versa. I got the statement from the author's email that there could not be an LDS Church without a Catholic Church. One had to fall away and one had to rise. You will find in studying the doctrines how the LDS doctrines appear to be Catholic doctrines restored. It is going to be an interesting and learning experience for me to read in more chapters. Have a good day, readers!

    The Affect of Anti-Mormon Propaganda

    My good friend's reply this morning: I have not buy the book, yet. What you did is very good, in my bible doesn't have Alma. I will try to find the book. Thank you. This is positive for the first time in many weeks!! :-) I encouraged her to read BOM chapters/verses on lds.org just like I am reading hers online, too.

    The Affect of Anti-Mormon Propaganda

    Happy Belated Easter to you all, My good friend and I had a few weeks of poking fire on Catholicism and Mormonism to the point where I told her of my sorrow on how our friendship was falling apart. After spending some time researching online about how the Catholics and Mormons had said, I found the book to be the soothing offer. I am reading it so that I could understand my Catholic friend's perspective better. It is called Catholic Roots Mormon Harvest: A story of Conversion and 40 Comparative Doctrines by Eric Shuster, whose conversion from being Catholic to Latter-Day Saint of Jesus Christ was made more than 20 years ago. According to the author's comments, "there could not be an LDS Church without a Catholic Church. One had to fall away and one had to rise. You will find in studying the doctrines how the LDS doctrines appear to be Catholic doctrines restored." This author's wife's goal was to become a nun, but it was changed during the investigation. For my Easter greeting to my good friend, I gave her the summary on The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Chapter 8). If you are in the same situation as mine, I would recommend this book. Its description by Mark McConkie, Professor, University of Colorado, is "written in a sincere and gentle style, filled with friendly humor, .... "
