    New 2 hour block to start in January 2019

    I'm really excited about the greater emphasis on teaching in the home. I can't wait to dive into the new manual with my family.

    Controversial topic

    LOL! My kids have a similiar story . . . crazy seagulls...
  3. Snacking during conference was a lot more fun before I changed my diet, LOL I'm not complaining though. I'll be watching at home with my family. My family will be munching on all sorts of finger foods, mostly unhealthy ones. I will be doing my sketchnotes....graphic recording. Pets? I don't know if my dog will join us, the guinea pigs only care about food...there is a reason they are called "pigs". But now that you mention it, the bearded dragon, Leo, would probably enjoy sitting on my chest and watching. So yeah, Leo will be there. I can't speak for the other animals though.
  4. A Bloomberg article headline states "Milennials are Causing the US Divorce Rate to Plummet". On the surface, this seems like a good thing. After all divorce is generally frowned upon, and our leaders have told is the family is under attack, so this is good news, right? No, actually the headline is misleading. Milennials and Gen X aren't getting divorced as often because they aren't getting married in the first place. But they are cohabitating . . . Cohabitating is bad not only because it is a sin....or to put it another way, the Lord has warned us against cohabitation because those unions are less stable. They are more likely to break up and more likely to divorce if they do marry. These relationships are more likely to be abusive. And the unstable nature of these relationships is very unhealthy for the children produced in such relationships. So this article which initially appeared to be good news is actually bad news, and is evidence of what our leaders have been warning us about for years....that Satan is attacking families.
  5. Great article. I think predicting the future, by looking at the past is a pretty reliable way to go.

    Car accident, what would you do?

    So sorry you have to deal with this. Sounds like the law is on your side, hopefully he will realize it would be a waste of money to take you to court.

    I want to finish serving my mission but…

    I have no experience or advice. I just wanted to say Kudos for turning your life around and turning to the Savior. What matters most as, NeuroTypical said, is that you are following Christ. Satan thought he had you, but you escaped his tentacles and returned to Christ. I couldn't be happier for you!

    What to do about Pronouns

    That is how I feel as well. He/she...fine, but some people want to be called "they". No! "They" denotes plural; the grammar nazi in me just will not allow me to use a plural pronoun to refer to a single individual. I'll just use the proper name over and over if needed.

    Me too! It just depends.

    How to help a sibling who admits having a "Crisis of Faith"

    You are so right, being judgemental will only drive her further out the door. Maybe the first people you should talk to are your other siblings. If your sister is open to it, the book, The Crucible of Doubt by Terryl and Fiona Givens was really helpful to me, and Let her know that you love her regardless of what she decides. If can't say that and mean it she is unlikely to listen to anything else you have to to say.

    "And in other news..."

  12. Anatess, since I lack you and JustaGuy's debate skills, and to be honest knowledge of politics, I'm going to bow out, and respond by "liking" JAGs posts as he says things I wish I would have thought of. I'll see you in another thread.

    Priesthood blessings

    Thanks for sharing this. In the past, I didn't read the messages from the Priesthood meeting because being the Priesthood meeting I assumed that they didn't have anything to do with me. The Lord has been showing me that I was wrong...via talks from Priesthood that I find quite helpful and enlightening So I am repenting! This looks like another such talk. Can't wait to read it.
  14. I did miss your post from yesterday,, thanks for explaining. So what are your thoughts on the fact that there are now three accusers?
  15. I guess I haven't been following this closely enough, I didn't realize a third accuser had come forward. I'm off to google... Thanks.
