was to treat church shopping as you would house shopping. Can you afford it? Do you have time to maintain it? Do you like the neighbors? Take the religious element out of it first and see if it is somewhere you want to hang in the first place. And look at as many houses as possible :) BTW Ford Escape, we just had to replace ours. Ours got totaled by a 16-year-old. Sigh. At least her p

Not just accepting others that were different but seeking them out and embracing those differences. I also give credit to him and the Science Lady that had the show from UofU with any shred of process/problem solving I have. I still remember the segment he did on how bubble gum was made. It opened a whole new world for me. Funny, now that is an industry DH kinna works in. Mr. Rogers and the

"Please OP, keeping the peace is not an option - not without serious consequences to your family. The kids will hate her, grow angry and will direct said anger at you, too, for putting up with it - and I speak from experience." I also agree that this is a problem you have created by putting up with it. If you let the puppy piddle on the rug (let alone REWARD IT) why on Earth would t

Then hand them my printout of the essays I keep behind the front door. You guys really need to know these things as they are becoming more and more public and I am sure you would not want to embarrass yourselves. And after all, the Glory of God is intelligence right :) And see, it is fine for you to read them because they are off your OWN website!

Take your power back in no uncertain terms! I would print off the URLs for the essays, pop them in the mail and tell the tool to go educate HIMSELF. I keep a copy by my front door just in case I get any drop-ins. Pretty damn hard to whine, argue or say they are LIES when they are straight off their own website :)

But I did get to see one of them being built. Damned if I can remember which one though! Many times I have thought how cool it is to have seen something that is going so very far.

But I am VERY happy to have sorted out a nasty name problem this summer with the SS office. Took two days and a TON of paperwork only to find out {GASP} the IRS was WRONG in what they were telling me the problem was. Over 20 years and two states to fix it but getting that SS card with my real, correct, LEGAL name - priceless.

I find all this us V them crap disgusting. We need to be reaching out to others not pushing away and drawing lines. We all need to do what we can. When you look in the mirror do you see a hero? https://www.ragnbonemanmusic.com/video/human-2/

They are called Single's Wards ;) Serious though, I sure have never heard even the mention of one. Good luck with your wife Tom. I think the essays are the best teaching tool out there. This one seems to make the biggest impact on women. The second link really brings home just what he really thought of Emma. Slipped in her sealing between the teens.

Yes, I understand what the focus of this commercial is. I am not trying to go there. This made me think of mormonism and scientology. Edit to add, it doesn't matter if you FEEL it is a banana, it is still an apple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vckz6EAn30Y

as the topic has already been brought up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Joseph_Smith%27s_wives This is a nice chart and easy to understand. You can easily see age and their current marital status when he was sealed to them. Also note, you will NOT find his wife Emma on this chart. They were not sealed until 28 May 1843 when he slipped her in between teenagers. Also, teach crit

https://www.myfitnesspal.com/ Very quick and easy to use. You can even add your own recipes. It helps you get and keep a handle on everything you are eating. And not eating. To help get a handle on exercise I suggest you get a band.

as one that has been here for a couple of decades, DO keep your head down till you graduate. In the big picture, it just isn't that much time. Once you are free and clear and ready to talk more to your wife please think about showing her the essays. They are straight off lds.org so she can't argue about the facts.

Your husband can't object, they are on lds.org. The list is here - http://exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,1180178 I would print one out, read it yourself and perhaps make some notes on it. Leave it where your son will see it. Maybe bring something up to him about it. That you are learning things you never were told in church and does he know about this? And this? And that?

Back in the old days the laws about the net were few, far between and not understood by most. Cricket used to call it the Wild West. I still think it is prudent to keep your IRL private info just that. Private IRL info.
