  1. I imagine church leaders spend considerable time reaching decisions because consensus is important. Consequently I would not place too much weight on the correlation between the timing of world events and the decisions of the brethren.

    I love the ham idea. We have turkey: messy, has to stay hot. Ugh.

    Supporting spouses in bishopric

    Thinking of the ‘lonely’ point above, I would be tempted to arrange a bit more social support for myself. Maybe join a bookclub or join a gym? You may be lonely
  4. I think for any church you should go and look at the people who are members. Do these people appear to obey the commandments that you consider key? How do they treat the weak and oppressed? How do the children treat their parents? Attend an event and observe how people treat each other.

    If not BYU, then what college to send the kids to?

    At my university the IB students outperform all other students with the exception of one local high school. This local high school always has the highest achievement scores.

    Christmas Party

    Our very favorite thing is having the primary sing. Having the primary do something ensures that parents attend. Seeing children do ...anything no matter how badly puts everyone in a great mood. We keep trying to tell the primary teachers that expertise is NOT the issue. We just like looking at the children. Also no food that stains if you have carpeting. No purple grape juice or beetroot. Feed the children and elderly first. (I always have a snack in my purse because this takes a while.)

    Dear @MormonGator, I read it ..but I have no idea what was going on! I have to say, this book would really put you off family! I should buy Coles/Sparks Notes from ABEbooks and try again!

    I am hoping to go to a book club tonight! We are discussing Mrs Westaway. I literally pulled an all nighters reading this! https://books.google.ca/books/about/The_Death_of_Mrs_Westaway.html?id=PnVEDwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button&redir_esc=y

    Woo! Not a light read clearly! I may need a lot of literary criticism to follow that book! I wish it was possible to get a good ‘annotated’ edition of books in é-format. I mean an edition with a ton of footnotes and explanations as opposed to the skimpy editions labeled as ‘annotated’. I need a lot of help to get through these classic books!

    I saw the movie but I think that I would need a bucket full of Prozac to get through the book! 😢

    Career Change - Advice?

    Good Job you! Well done! ⭐️
  14. Very true that they will not start without you but...they WILL be waiting for you so...All women look a bit ‘drowned rat’ after baptism. Sorry! Wear before: A dress because most/many will be in Sunday dress. I have two polyester long dresses. This is what I wore to church. They are indestructible. In part, I am Canadian and part of my culture is fitting in and following social rules. (I have met a lot of American woman who share my values. Especially women from downtown Detroit and the south. Just saying). If the sisters wear dresses, I wear dresses. Also, I am often asked to do stuff: teach a class at the last minute or just lend a hand in general. Ask me to help and I will! The great thing is that you are entering a world in which help is only a phone call away at any hour of the day and night. You will make friends with people who are so fantastic, you will not believe it. And they will be your friends forever. You have come home! You will spend the rest of your life with people who share your values of kindness and caring. Okay back to clothes. I am also pale as a pint of milk so I hear you. I have a tube of make up that I slap on. Fast slap of lipstick, Seriously get ready as fast as possible. However, I do come from a culture in which the feelings of others are very important. After baptism and quite likely for the rest of your existence, you will glow with a calm reservoir of strength and beauty. No doubt you are currently beautiful. Well you just wait. It only gets better! You will have a light inside you that will carry you over the bumps and valleys of life. You will be very glad that you made this decision and you will feel God’s love on your darkest day. For clothing after I like those polyester long dresses. Easy to get on and you look taller, more elegant. It is nice to hang out with people who do not care about your wardrobe or bank account. Welcome sister! We are so happy to have you with us!
