    Prayer: when you don't want to ask

    I'm sorry this is tough for you. I think one of the most important discoveries I've made in life is realizing that God wants me to be 100% honest with him. I know that sounds silly, because why lie to God he already knows everything, but I tried to pretend I wasn't angry or upset with him when important things I really needed were not provided. All burying my anger did was prevent me from being healed and learning to appreciate how God was guiding me and building me up. So I say, I understand sister. I've felt the same way as you before, and I will probably feel that way again. But I do know, as Nephi said in 1 Nephi 11, that "God loveth his children." God be with you in your time of trial, whatever it may be.
  2. Considering everything else going on this does not surprise me, but I'm saddened by the news nonetheless. I never thought I would live to see the day when temple work would ever cease even temporarily. https://www.deseret.com/faith/2020/3/25/21194822/coronavirus-mormon-church-temples-closed-coranavirus-covid19-lds-latter-day-saints

    Sacrament at home Q

    As long as both your bishops have given you permission I don't see a problem, go for it.

    Quelled? Nay now I have an even stronger desire to march the US army into the UN, shouting at the top of my lungs "I say you are no more Parliam...I mean an assembly" and boot them out of New York. Except I can't leave my house this week due to quarantine. Oh well I can make drinking cups of the skulls of my enemies next week.

    Oh you know smiling and nodding while reading the economic parts, burning the parts that say it's wrong to conquer and pillage weak countries
  6. Blue are my favorite but only red ones have any medicinal qualities /s.
  7. Hey props to her, I would have loved to see that reaction.
  8. Hey it's your loss l. I've already made 10 billion dollars selling magic beans, and all you have to do is sign up your friends for a product they totally need. Also, my brother's, friend's, college roommate is now his own boss, and you could be too if you were just willing to alienate everyone in your life.
  9. Make sure those are red M and M's, and you have to eat them by the light of a full moon, and to the sounds of drums to get the full effect. Trust me this is one weird trick doctors don't want you to know! /s😉

    Movies you like that no one else does

    I'm a fan of the prequels too. Even when they came out I liked them (although 3 is my favorite). They weren't as good as the originals, but I wasn't expecting them to be, and overall I enjoyed them.

    Movies you like that no one else does

    I loved the movie Gettysburg, made in the 1990's. It's classic Civil War action, and it was good although I've never met anyone else who liked it nearly as much as I did. There were some fake looking beards, but the acting was spot on and there was genuine emotion in the film. I also liked the Last Samurai. I know cultural appropriation, white savior syndrome, blah blah blah, but I thought Tom Cruise was spot on as a veteran struggling with PTSD and I loved the action sequences. Speaking of Tom Cruise The Edge of tomorrow. The ending fell a little flat, but I've never seen an action movie about a stable time loop that was more like watching someone play a video game, and I genuinely thought the plot was fun.

    Sacrament at home prep

    We have been given permission to have Sacrament at home too. I have to admit I'm excited. I don't typically get to take part in the Sacrament portion of the service myself since we usually have more than enough young men, but it's been one of my favorite priesthood ordinances to participate in since I was a young man.

    BYU classroom lecture

    That was common when I went as well. I remember some classes beginning with prayer, and, especially in religion but also in other courses, professors would definitely relate lessons to the gospel from time to time. That would have been 2007 to 2011 so not that long ago. I would have just walked out of this guy's class and dropped him after a stunt like this. I'd take the W on my report card if need be.
  14. Right I forgot to add that disclaimer thank you.
  15. I'm glad we can still partake of the Sacrament at home since I hold the priesthood but this makes me sad. I look forward to church every week https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/gatherings-worldwide-temporarily-suspended
