  1. Since I have time off from work, I thought it would be nice to take a break and play a game that occurs either Friday night or Saturday at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. I will post if a game happens on Saturday or time for next week. Either way, I hope to see people there. See the website for more information on how to get to the game. Remember that subscribers to the mailing list get three pre-game questions.
  2. The next game will be tomorrow, 2 Dec, at the usual time of 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The notify list got three completely random questions. The answers are submitted at a certain point when the game starts. Remember that there's an on-time bonus of 5,000 for arriving at the game before 6 PM Pacific. I hope to see you there. Go to the website for information on how to get to the game.
  3. Here's a reminder that a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern tomorrow. Newsletter subscribers already got three questions, so please go to the website (http://www.ldstrivia.org ) to subscribe and get it. Whoever can give me the correct answers when the game starts will earn points. Being on time gets a bonus, too. Hope to see you there. By the way, a game can be done on Thanksgiving, but that will be done if people actually request it. It's a day to spend with family, but I can host a game if asked.
  4. The next game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles is tomorrow, Monday, 12 Nov, at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. All subscribers of the mailing list got an e-mail with three completely at random questions to answer. Only subscribers will get this. To get this message, please subscribe on the website: http://www.ldstrivia.org/. If you don't get the e-mail after subscribing, let me know. Anyone who is at the game on time will get a shot to answer those questions that won't be shown in the channel. Whoever gets the questions correct will get the points. Remember the on-time bonus still applies. I don't know if people are trying to sign up but can't due to technical problems. Let's have some fun and learn about the gospel at the same time. I hope to see you there.
  5. I thought to post when the next game is because it will be different than usual. Because I work on Sunday, I will not have a game; however, it's a school holiday on Monday so that I won't have school. I can hold a trivia game that night, which will be at the usual time of 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. Think of this as a GREAT Family Home Evening activity for the family. I'm going to try something for this next session to get people in. First of all, whoever shows up on time to the game will get 5,000 points right off the bat. Additionally, the day before, I'll send an e-mail to all subscribers in the notify list with a reminder of the next game AND three completely random questions. I will not change the point values or mark them as used. The objective is to get people to come to the game by thinking about the questions, including looking them up. Try to answer first before looking them up, please, but I can't enforce this. The people that show up on time to the game will get the answers and points if they provide the correct answers before the game officially starts. The newsletter will contain the right answers, which is sent only when after playing a game. If you want to sign up for the notify list and/or the newsletter, please see the website, send me an e-mail, or PM me here on Facebook. If you have difficulty signing up, please let me know. I don't know if people are trying to sign up but can't due to technical problems. Let's have some fun and learn about the gospel at the same time.
  6. The next game session will be Sunday, 4 Nov 2018. The time is 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. Remember that arriving on time gets 5,000 points right off the bat. I hope to see people there. Please see the website for more info on getting to the game. Any questions? Please ask here or via e-mail shown on the site.
  7. Okay, the next LDS Trivia and Puzzles game session will be Sunday, October 28, 2018, the last for the month of October. The time is still the same: 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. Remember that arriving on time gets 5,000 points right off the bat. I hope to see people there. Remember that I can only do these games once a week now due to school.
  8. I have several new pieces of FREE sheet music on my website. These are arrangements of "Still, Still, Still / Oh, Hush Thee, My Baby." The piano arrangement is not made to be sung to as it is quite a bit different from the other arrangements. The arrangement for vocal duet could actually be a solo or choir piece as well. These are currently FREE! Please pass the word. https://holversonmusic.com/still-still-still-oh-hush-thee-my-baby-medley Merry Christmas, Clip preview - Still, Still, Still medley for Piano and Flute.pdf preview - Still, Still, Still medley Piano solo.pdf preview - Still, Still, Still medley Vocal Duet.pdf
  9. Brothers and Sisters, I have written on this site before and have deeply appreciated and also enjoyed the responses from my posts. Since then I have spent much time on this site https://talkaboutmarriage.com/forumindex.php perhaps to my own peril, but the constant stories of infidelity, which are obviously not healthy to continuously read upon, are definitely making me paranoid that my future partner (whoever that may be) will default to mortal "imperfection" and even up develop an emotional/physical affair with someone else. I think it is developing as a huge paranoia of mine even though I have personally not been cheated on. Ive noticed many situations where people have been blindsided by their spouses betrayal and abuse, and it truly appears like the worst type of pain in the world. Its actually something one of my professors briefly discussed in one of my religion classes and like he said, the infidelity of ones' spouse can inflict pain upon ones soul. It is unlikely that I will remain in isolation and avoid women (LDS) for the rest of my life, so if any of you wise brothers and sisters have advice on what has made your relationships successful and has nullified the fear of spousal betrayal, would you mind sharing it? Thanks P.S I recently read this story https://talkaboutmarriage.com/coping-infidelity/370602-wife-choosing-other-man.html and in many ways, it reminded me of a relationship I was in not too long ago where I had a strong desire to marry this person. These stories do make me feel slightly unsure that if we had taken the direction of marriage, that I also could potentially face the same result.
  10. Okay, here's the reminder about a game on Sunday, 21 Oct 2018. It will be at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. If no one shows up to an hour after this time, no game will be played until the next time. Unfortunately, I'm only able to hold the one game this coming week because of school and work. I don't have a lot of time to work on the game as much as I did during summer break. I hope to see some people there. If there's a problem finding the game or a suggestion for another time, please drop a line, either by commenting or from the website.
  11. Okay, no one showed up during conference weekend. I'm at a loss as to what time will work for people; however, I'm not going to change the time. Due to school and actual work, I won't be able to have a game later this week, and I work next Sunday, so the next game won't be until 21 Oct at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. I guess IRC is just not a popular medium for chatting, or people aren't talking on-line anymore. That is a good thing. (People not talking on-line anymore is a good thing.) I'll keep trying. Edit: I forgot to post the URL for the game's website. If people want to play but can't figure out how to get to the channel to play, please drop a line by either replying here or sending me an e-mail at the website. Please give me as much information as you can, so I can help.
  12. Hi there, Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Adam and I am 34. I grew up in Florida and was baptized when I was 22 but fell away from the church 5 years after my baptism and since then I've been building my career and moved to Cali. Was curious if anyone suggests I should return to church? Or am I too old to return? And why or why not would you suggest it? Just wanted some input since i've been pondering it alot and still have my BOM and bible and everything but not sure if I should based on my age and since I was inactive for so long and believe they removed my records because Ive been so inactive. Thank you and it's lovely to meet you all!
  13. Okay, conference weekend is upon us. This is a perfect time to have a game. Two are scheduled to occur on Saturday night AND Sunday night at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. If I get any responses about it being earlier, I may have it start earlier. If you are interested in playing, please see the website (http://www.ldstrivia.org) for more information and/or ask questions here. Even though two are scheduled, only one will be played, so if a game plays on Saturday, there will be no game on Sunday. If that happens, I will announce it. I hope to see some players.
  14. Since I started school last Wednesday, I only have time for one game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles each week. Sometime soon, I hope to add Fridays, so I'll announce when that will occur. Until then, the only session will be on Sundays at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The idea is to have a session after dinner, my time, and after all church sessions, excluding firesides and other meetings that night. A lot of people view Sundays as family time, so think of this as a great family activity. It's preferred to have individuals play instead of teams. I hope to see someone tonight. Correction: I forgot I have Saturday off this week. This allows a game session; however, it's General Conference weekend, so the usual time is during the evening session, which I believe is the women's conference. I'll have the game at the usual time unless I get feedback to make it earlier.
  15. Okay, the next game will be on Sunday night at the usual 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The other two days will be Tuesday and Friday at the same time. One game will be played this week, so I'll announce when a game is played. Okay, it's football season, so some of you may want to watch football more than playing trivia, but if you can, I suggest recording it. I start school on Wednesday, so after next week, the only game day will be Sunday night. If you have questions about how to get to the game, please ask, either here or through private message. I can't help people get to the game if I don't know about it. Further, remember the time zone is Pacific, which is -7 GMT with daylight savings. For the other side of the world, the game would be in the morning the following day. I suggest Googling what time it is in Washington state to see how much time you are apart from where I'm at. I hope to see you there.
  16. PS this is going to be a long post. This is my first post on this site and boy, I am so grateful that this site exists. I have been reading through some discussions related to my issue and whilst it doesn't give me any answers (only prayer and scripture reading can do that) it does give me slight comfort. I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for just less than six months. Over the first two months of dating she has mentioned on numerous occasions that she is undecided about serving a mission. Last year she spoke to her then Bishop about serving a mission but due to the lack of communication between them both, it didn't become her priority and then she and I started dating. For context I am a 21 year old international convert studying at BYU. My *girlfriend is 20 years old and has grown up in the church and is also studying at BYU. Obviously I want to be respectful of my *girlfriend when sharing certain details about our relationship, but to summarize, her parental relationship is split. I am the only member of the Church in my family. I have been a member for over two years and she has been a member for all her life. About 4 months into the relationship she had a meeting with someone very involved in her life, and she told me that the result of the meeting would going to determine whether or not she was going to serve a full time mission. I fully expected her to say that she is going to serve a mission and even in the weeks before when she and I were discussing it, I did tell her that I have no intention of dating a return missionary especially since I myself am not a return missionary and by the standard of the church, it ought to be the other way around. I did however advise her to continue praying about it. After her meeting she told me that she is not going to serve a mission, and to be completely honest, I was relieved. I really liked this girl and I felt that she liked me. Both of us have dated the same number of people before we met each other (under 10) and this is our first serious relationship with anybody. I remember telling myself before her meeting that if by any chance she doesn't go on a mission, I will think seriously about marrying her. So fast forward a few months and over time we begin to develop an extremely strong physical attraction to each other and it got pretty bad. After a discussion we had, we both felt that it was appropriate for us to see the Bishop. We both saw her Bishop and even though I didn't know what the outcome of that meeting would entail, I am so grateful that we both saw him together. Later, I saw my own Bishop and we have both learnt that we need written guidelines to help quell our physical attraction to each other. It has been harder and harder of recent and part of me is a little relieved that we mutually broke up two days ago hence the * next to girlfriend; however our break up is another story in and of itself. About a month ago after hanging out with my *girlfriend I was about to leave her apartment until she stopped me and said that the Lord has communicated to her that she should go on a mission. As you might bet, I was distraught as I had already had multiple serious conversations with her about marriage, and apart from the values we both share within the church, there are many other standards that we agree must be upheld to promote a stable family unit. She has convinced me that she understands what it will take for a marriage to be sustained for eternity and I believe I have also convinced her. However, of course, she wanted to go on a mission. After a lot of tears on my end I did not feel like I could break up with her just because she wanted to serve the Lord. It took some pride swallowing but I believed (and still do) that I will never find another girl like this girl and even though my *girlfriend has continually encouraged that while she is serving, I should date other people, part of me wants to test how long I can hold out until she gets back. I have no intention of dating other people whilst she is gone as I do truly believe that both of us have what it takes to raise a family together. Since last week, my *girlfriend has felt extremely conflicted about her mission and has mentioned that she wants to marry and raise children with me. She knows that I absolutely want to marry her and even though I have made that obvious months ago, I have done my best to be supportive of her mission since she mentioned it and I have even mustered the courage to say "I think you should go on a mission" even though I am well aware that she most likely won't come back looking to marry me. Last Sunday we went to church together and afterwards she shared something her mother sent her via text. For context, my *girlfriend's mother has been extremely adamant that her daughter should serve a mission. The mother has served a mission and whilst the mother's life has taken a nasty turn after she married a convert who was above the age range to serve a mission, she is extremely adamant that her daughter should serve a mission and part of my *girlfriend's mother's reasoning appears to be that her daughter will be condemned if she doesn't. Even as a convert I understand this desire for your children, boys or girls, to not only serve but to marry someone who has also served, so when I saw what my *girlfriend's mother sent her, we both discussed it and agreed upon the significance of the words from Spencer W.Kimball which said, "The question is asked: Should every young man fill a mission? And the answer of the Church is yes, and the answer of the Lord is yes. Enlarging this answer we say: Certainly every male member of the Church should fill a mission, like he should pay his tithing, like he should attend his meetings, like he should keep his life clean and free from the ugliness of the world and plan a celestial marriage in the temple of the Lord” (Spencer W. Kimball, “Planning for a Full and Abundant Life”, Ensign, May 1974, 86). So after a long and tearful discussion about this specific speech we both agreed that we did not have any intention to disregard the Lord's commandment and we mutually broke up two days ago. Just writing this to an anonymous forum makes me feel a little apprehensive but I have seen the replies from other posts and I am confident that I will be able to see extremely insightful replies regarding my situation with my *girlfriend. I know of course that I need to keep praying and reading scripture. I have seen my Bishop about this and he gave me great council regarding this dilemma in our relationship.
  17. Okay, when originally planning for the next game, I didn't know I was scheduled to work Sunday, so that means Sunday's game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles will move up a half an hour to 6:30 PM Pacific, 9:30 PM Eastern. However, it means I'll have Monday and Wednesday off, so those days are available for a game at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. Please remember that being there before 6 PM Pacific will get 5,000 bonus points. If I'm late, and you're there when I arrive, that's 5,000 points. I hope to see you all then.
  18. Hey everybody, im a convert to the church, I joined about nine months ago. From the time I joined the church there was a girl in young women's with me who I idolised because she had also joined the church as a teenager, but then found out she was breaking the word of wisdom often. This I found out from a mutual friend who told me, not knowing that I didn't know. I was quite shocked when I was told, but it made a lot of sense. A few months earlier I was told by Elders I know in our ward that there were photos of her on the internet drinking. I don't know who showed them but someone did. I spent a lot of time defending her to these Elders and the following missionaries as well, as I didn't know. The thing is, this girl is planning on getting endowed next month as she is prepairing to go on her mission! I know this is an awful idea. She hasn't repented for breaking the WoW as she doesn't think it's that bad, and the only parts of it she didn't break were the tea and coffee. I don't know what I'm suppose to do now. I don't want to seem judgemental when I ask her, but I don't know where the line is between judging and being concerned. My other friend who is a convert has talked to her about it and what she usually says is "I have been in the church longer than you so I know more about this" and then exits the conversation. I'm not a snitch or anything so I really am torn here. I have no idea what to do. I don't even have a idea on what to do. So if anyone has any options on what to do that would be well appreciated. thanks a million
  19. Okay, no game this week. I'll try announcing earlier than just 24 hours. I don't work Saturday, but there's a devotional, so there won't be a game then. Unfortunately, the next game will be Sunday at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. For those outside the United States, that would make it about 10 AM in Tokyo and about 11 AM in the middle of Australia. That country spans about four time zones. Daylight Savings can throw a monkey wrench into time zones. To get a better time, compare your time zone to GMT -7.
  20. Okay, this next week's games are either Sunday night or Monday night at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. More information on the website, including signing up for newsletters and notifications. This could be a great activity for Family Home Evening.
  21. The next game will be tonight at 6:30 PM Pacific, 9:30 PM Eastern, or it will be either Monday or Tuesday at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. I work today, so that's why it's moved a half an hour. For more information, please see the website. People should now be able to sign up for the mailing lists. If there's difficulty signing up, please let me know.
  22. Okay, time for a game Tuesday OR Wednesday night at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. More information on the website. I hope to see you there. If a game happens on Tuesday, I'll post that there won't be one on Wednesday. I hope to have the subscribe function of the site operational. People should be able to subscribe to e-mails that talk about the game AND when the next game session will be.
  23. Last night my husband and I were up talking late. He suddenly confessed to me that he has been hurting my 5 month old daughter. He said it has happened maybe 10 or 11 times over the past five months, and that it was things like pinching, smacking/slapping, etc. Nothing sexual or shaking or anything. He said the last time he did it was a 3 or so weeks ago. He told me he was telling me now because he couldn’t live with himself anymore and was dying because of the guilt and shame. He told me he mostly does it to get a rise out of her because he likes to bring her down from her crying. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK OR DO. We have been married for almost two years (in the temple). He has never once been violent towards me in any way shape or form. I just feel sick over this. I don’t know what to do, don’t know who to talk to about it. The thought that he could have even laid a finger on my daughter makes me so upset I feel like the room is spinning. I told him he needed to go see the bishop and that we needed to look into counseling for him. I told him I love him and want to forgive but I don’t even know where to start. And I’m not even the victim! I love him so much, but I don’t know how to get over this. Please help me. Do I work towards forgiveness? Am I crazy to try and save this? Or do I end everything? I’m so scared and feel so alone. I don’t know the next step.
  24. Okay, time for a game Wednesday night at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. More information on the website. Since I work on Sunday, the next session won't be until next Tuesday or Wednesday night at the same time. I hope to see you there.
  25. Okay, I'm hoping to have a game Sunday night at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. Once again, more information on the website. I added some information on how to get to the game with an Apple product. Unfortunately, I don't know much, but I hope it will help someone get there.
