Being a "prophet," in the LDS sense, means being the conduit for God's instructions to his people. It doesn't necessarily mean predicting the future.
I watched GC long enough on my phone to watch three brethren speak before Satan made it overheat. *snicker* I want to share what I got out of it...
-Computer skills are God's gift to do Family History
-More blessings for the youth who use technology for FH and not video games, surfing the web and Facebook.
-Go forth and multiply!

Isn't it interesting that Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming rank right up at the top and these states have high percentages of Mormons, I know, because I live in the thick of it near Rexburg ID. Now, why is it that God's one true church, the one with the plan of happiness, the one with all the keys of the priesthood and 'families can be together forever', seems to bring about unending depression? (She says in her best Dana Carvey's 'Church Lady' impression: "I don't know... maybe SATAN?")
The reason this is here is because many have written to me wanting to know what do Mormons really believe. There are a lot of pro-Mormon propaganda sites and they all say the same thing - family unity, they are Christian, the Book of Mormon is true and on and on. These other sites still do not say what they really believe. What Mormons actually believe is not normally taught by the Mormon missionaries or shown on the TV commercials. Mormon doctrine is quite fluid.

If you haven't heard by now I've removed my web page.
I've chosen an alias because I'm still trying to find a way to bring my page back. It was my mistake for using my real name, I felt that to do otherwise would be cowardly. I guess the joke's on me.
I was born and raised a Mormon in Southern California. My ancestors crossed the Plains in covered wagons, and I have ancestors who were married to both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young.
