Re: what does "happiness" mean to a Mormon?

Jesus Christ did quite a few things that did not feel good. In fact, he did a couple that drew blood due to the immense pressures of not "feeling good". Ghandi did things that did not feel good. Mother Teresa as well. Joan of Arc. I do understand the source of the idea of "feeling goo...

Re: little detached happy thoughts

There are so many ways to praise the Lord and his goodness that many women feel like they have to be able to do ALL of them ( can peaches, sing in the choir, be Primary President, feed the hungry ). This list makes me giggle. At the time I wrote it, I had only ever canned peaches. I have since part...

Re: And now, for something completely different...

My sister and I share a password protected Google doc that has her account info and stuff. Just in case. Oh, duh! Why didn't I think of this?? I have a document on my computer containing all the household passwords. I wanted it safe in case of hackers, so my husband put some sort of password progra...

Re: Money help!

I use an Excel spreadsheet I commissioned my husband to make. But our money is relatively simple because we don't do a lot of little transactions anymore. For example, we generally take care of all the groceries transactions done in one or two big transactions. I hated -HATED- having to go through a...

I'm not good with it either. Over the past year, I honestly have said "Stop it" and "Get over it" at least a dozen times to someone who kept looping over some unchangeable event.

Re: Tithing

No worries. I was just trying to see if anyone had anything else to say. I expected at least someone to be pro-paying on the car proceeds, but I guess not. I pay tax on gross, I always have a business to lower my tax liabilities, and I pay tithing on the things I sell. Maybe one of those answered t...

Re: Tithing

I am so confused. I had a hard time following the "marginal tax" talk; maybe my brain doesn't want to see it.

I pay tax on gross, I always have a business to lower my tax liabilities, and I pay tithing on the things I sell. Maybe one of those answered the original question.

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

My husband has been gone three weeks. I was handling it awesomely. Then we went to Church last Sunday, also known as Germ Fest For The Kids. My girls have been sick since Tuesday. I got hit with it today. Then, my real estate agent called an hour ago to say that one of the houses we were in first po...

Hey! I spoke in church, too. Yesterday. Just once though.
The bishopric finally caught on to us having lived in the ward 8 years without having spoken in Sacrament.

I have some questions about taking on a new residential property. We are leaning toward renting out our house and letting the renters pay off our mortgage. (That house has a 15-year mortgage with accompanying "higher" payments.) We have found a second house to move into which we plan on pu...

I am the primary teacher for a 6yo girl with autism. In our ward, the children with the more severe forms of autism or Down syndrome usually get their own individual teachers or class. I will be with my girl in her regular class but be her teacher that helps keep her focused and minimize the wanderi...

I was called in tonight to speak with a member of the bishopric and extended a new calling. For a couple years, I have been teaching Gospel Doctrine (my "dream" calling, if there is such a thing). Last Sunday, the lesson went fantastical, even better than I knew it would be. The entire roo...

Might be a good idea to attach a photo of you and your spouse with your child onto his luggage.

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

That is sad. It's like it's okay to bash certain groups, but not others. I think I'd bow out if I were you, but then I probably wouldn't have joined in the first place, so you can't go by what I'd do. Maybe they need someone to keep standing up for what you believe in, and probably there are a lot ...

It just felt so inappropriate to me because 1) he is in the bishopric and 2) we are the same age. Maybe I would have thought nothing of my "cutie pie" comment if he was much older or much younger than me. I will now lash myself a dozen lashes.
