    Emotional affair and children

    Correct, it’s not the same as illicit sex, but I think the verses are saying that it’s the same heart and spirit that would so. And the spiritual downfall is the same. As such, for anyone to suggest that someone does not need to talk to their bishop over an emotional affair, is misguided.

    Emotional affair and children

    Exactly. Not only that, but the scriptures are also very clear that lusting after someone who is not your spouse is a form of adultery: “Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery in his heart,” Matt. 5:28. And “If any shall commit adultery in their hearts, they shall not have the Spirit,” D&C 63:14–16.

    How to restore desire ?

    Didn’t you basically just tell him to get everything out? Rip the entire tree out from its root, and all that? It’s not an “I got you!!” moment. We’re not talking about him catching his wife forgetting to put the cap back on the toothpaste or putting her on the show “Cheaters.” This is serious. If his marriage is already suffering from lack of communication and other issues, do you honestly believe accusing his wife of adultery is going to help things? His intentions may be innocent enough, and even understandable, but, the reality is that most women are not going to see it that way, especially if they are already unhappy with their marriage. He can try to tell her these are just fears he has, but she will nevertheless just feel accused. Quite frankly, if she is cheating, she has more to answer than he does. But, like I said before, if he finds out for certain that she really is unfaithful, it is something that he needs to approach with through prayer.

    How to restore desire ?

    @Fether offers some sound advice, but I would be cautious of telling her that you are afraid she is cheating on you. If she is cheating, it’s not something she is likely to admit. And if she’s not cheating, you have just made things worse by telling your wife you don’t trust her. If you seriously suspect she is cheating, I would find proof before confronting her about it. And if it does turn out that she is cheating, and you still want to save your marriage, I would fervently pray for guidance on how to approach your wife about it.

    Holy Ghost - What do we know about him?

    We don't know that much about the Holy Ghost. However, when I was little, whenever I heard someone refer to the Holy Ghost, I always pictured this:

    Dealing with trauma

    About two years ago, my then 72-year-old mother was run over by a snow plow. Yes, a snow plow. Not the type that plow the city roads, but the ones you call to plow your driveway after a heavy snowfall. Given her age, it’s a miracle she did not sustain any broken bones, let alone survive. However, she now cringes whenever she hears the sound of a snow plow backing up.

    Free email provider?

    No. My wife still uses her Hotmail account.
  8. Several heroes have also lived trying that. Sometimes, the only thing you can do is improvise the best you can with the situation at hand, with the one second you have to think about it.

    Facebook bans LDS church link

    It’s blocked for me as well. I suppose Facebook realized that the standards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was well above their “community standards.”

    I’m also sorry to see you go, Folk Prophet. I’ve always found your posts to be interesting and thought provoking. However, I understand where you’re coming from, as I have also found myself coming to this forum less and less for the same reasons you stated. It’s been a long while since I’ve bothered to read an MGF article, as I have grown tired of their liberal leanings.

    Prayer Dillema

    Your gender is an eternal attribute. It is not something that changes, regardless of what the world would like us to believe. As such, if your sibling was born male, I would pray using the male pronoun. Personally, I believe Heavenly Father cares very much about what pronouns I use. I would feel odd praying for someone if I refused to acknowledge their divine nature. You know your brother is not really a she, so why pretend he is when praying?

    First time since I do not know how long

    Well, there are two reasons I can think of: 1. It’s not always possible to bring food you make at home. 2. Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for a greasy cheeseburger.
  14. Oddly enough, I’m sitting in the IAH airport as I’m reading this. Should I be concerned?

    Childhood Toys that Stick in the Memory

    That’s true. A few years ago, my wife and I bought some Play-Doh for our oldest daughter on her birthday. When I opened up the can, the smell emanating from that can transported me back to my days in kindergarten. It smelled like childhood.
