    This is why people leave

    How Church welfare is really supposed to be handled seems to be one of the best kept secrets even though the quotes are out there for everyone to read. It's about helping people maintain a sense of dignity unlike the govt system.

    For those who aren't aware - Cleaning the building is one of the things those who've gotten help from the Church should be asked to do in return for the help they've received. You may want to inform the powers-that-be if that doesn't seem to be happening in your unit.

    Agree but I'm aware of people on the 'not worthy' side of it too.

    Sometimes "I'm not ready" really means "I'm not worthy".
  6. “Two men looked out from prison bars, One saw the mud, the other saw stars.” - Dale Carnegie There are rotten apples in every bunch but you are the one who chooses to see what you look for. If you look for racism, discrimination, hypocrisy, etc you'll find it. But if you choose to see the good and those who do try to follow Christ's example, you'll find that too. Also, I think you're making some assumptions as well as projecting which really isn't fair or helpful.

    Husband drinking

    Sorry for your troubles. Honestly, I'd be quite bugged if he were spending money on booz when I had to go back to work for financial reasons. That said, I suggest supporting him by making sure he has time for something that is a better way to cope (ie running, basketball with the guys, etc). That's all I got right now but will chime in if something else comes to mind.

    Christmas present advice for returning missionary

    Oh, I know! A little black book!
  12. More thoughts: - Are you the rebound girl? How much time had passed between the end of his engagement and starting to date you? (you don't need to answer just something to think about) Breaking an engagement should take time to heal (esp when sex was involved) but did he think getting serious again was the solution? - Do Not Settle! - Read this and send it to him as well: http://middleagedmormonman.com/home/2013/06/romance-and-mission-prep/ then end this relationship so he can focus on his mission and you start dating other guys.
  13. @Hername - You deserve better!!
