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

    We need more entry-level jobs in the market.

    College is not worth it nowadays anyway. Send him to a Trade school instead. WELL WORTH IT!

    if you're kid is inactive. When he signs up for BYU, he's going to have to accept the policy and honor code of byu. Honor Code Statement We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men....If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. (Thirteenth Article of Faith.) As a matter of personal commitment, the faculty, administration, staff, and students of Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, BYU-I, and LDS Business College seek to demonstrate in daily living on and off-campus those moral virtues encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will: Be honest Live a chaste and virtuous life Obey the law and all campus policies Use clean language Respect others Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse Participate regularly in church services Observe Dress and Grooming Standards Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code Specific policies embodied in the Honor Code include (1) the Academic Honesty Policy, (2) the Dress and Grooming Standards, (3) the Residential Living Standards, and (4) the Continuing Student Ecclesiastical Endorsement Requirement. (Refer to institutional policies for more detailed information.) https://policy.byu.edu/view/index.php?p=26 IF he's inactive, are you sure he can live by those codes if he goes to BYU? If not, but he still goes there...well I'm not to judge but...he has to follow those rules or he will get kicked out! I'm a BYUI graduate.
  4. It's not really a good thing to announce this over the internet. This is a perfect example of "Hey, we are sitting ducks", for the potential shooters. Think about it. We should have announced this only for the church goers, we should only announce this secretly among church members. Now, we are sitting ducks. I'm still bringing my smallest piece no matter what, to protect my own family and others of potential dangers anyway.
  5. I know it's a commandment to "Honor your father and mother", basically parents. It's just really hard to honor them when they have been missing all my life. It's like they are there but not really there. My father, who was very abusive to me in the past, also threatened our family to leave us to divorce(but never did), who beat up my siblings and me and also was emotionally abusive to us. Everything has calmed down now but time to time, he has his own tantrums. My mom is basically missing on my life. I never had a meaningful conversation with her all my life. It's like we are there but we are so far apart. It hurts so much to know that they just exist and we don't really know each other. I am about to be independent now and moving out, but I feel like this has put a lot of burden in me. I've always wanted a family but they are just not there. We don't talk, we work, come home, do our thing, and when we do talk, we argue....

    New movie - Ephraim's Rescue

    I can't wait to watch it! Do they make they movies in Hollywood?
  7. Anger is the display of temper. The Lord cautioned His Saints to control their anger (Matt. 5:22). Neither parent nor child should abuse others in the family. In the scriptures, anger often has the figurative image of fire (2 Ne. 15:25; D&C 1:13). And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell, Gen. 4:5. The Lord is slow to anger, and of great mercy, Ps. 145:8. A soft answer turneth away wrath, Prov. 15:1. I know that not everyone out there is Mormon, and they don't have the same standards as we do. Today, some dude just bullied me because...well racism I guess that's what it was based on all the name calling he called me and all the rude names he said about me. I waited for him to punch me first so I could counter it. That way, I could call it "Counter offense, self defense", and I would be in less trouble with the police and I can explain that to a lawyer, not that I've gotten in trouble before but I know how the law works. I really provoked my bully to hit me. I guess he wanted to but didn't because many people were around. But I am guessing this kind of stuff will happen again sometime, in the future. I don't wanna give in to anger, I have experience in MMA and Muay Boran. We've always been told not to fight outside the ring. There was a quote from a shaolin monk "The way of kung-fu is to avoid all conflicts". Jesus said to be merciful and love your neighbor? But what should I do when fists start flying? What should I do when he attempts to hit me first? Should I just be passive and run? If I run, next time he will call me a coward, I've seen this happen on Netflix. Where the bully chases the bullied. I always ask myself, what would Jesus do? But I'm not Jesus. Should I defend myself? I couldn't find any doctrine about self-defense...but I know that the Nephites did what they had to do...

    Is getting pregnant from a sperm donor not allowed in the church?

    Her age and fertility has a lot to do with it. She's getting older and she might reach the age of "not being able to bear children". She worries too much about this and goes to the other option....artifical insemination. She doesn't consider adoption...She wants kids on her own...her own kid from her womb.

    Have you heard about MGTOW? These are one of the reasons LDS men go MGTOW too.
  10. I just wanted to make sure that what I'm feeling is not just emotions....but actually the Spirit.
  11. Care to share a top ten artists lists? or a top ten song list? :):)😍
  12. Can church songs and christian rock/music bring the spirit to you? I was listening to LDS radio on Pandora...and I had a warm feeling of happiness because of the lyrics and melody. The song is: Peace in Christ by McKenna Hixson. I'm wondering if there's a scriptural reference to this? I'm wondering if what I felt was from the Holy Spirit?! I'm just curious! Thank you !

    She's a criminal defense lawyer and holds an associates in Psychology. Sometimes she has too much stuff to do. I'll try to get her involved in this. I highly doubt it she has time for herself though.
