I adore my family and love spending time with them whenever I can. My life in the Mormon Church began when two missionaries knocked on my door in Dorset, England. I felt their sincerity and desperately wanted to have that strong testimony and peace that their gospel seemed to deliver. After praying for this testimony and receiving no answer, I doubled my efforts and read and prayed some more. Despite being taught that an adulterous generation sought after signs I felt that I sorely needed just one sign to help me make the decision to join the Church. I now look at this as simple confirmation bias; I wanted to believe that I had received communication from God. I was baptized on September 3rd and from that time forward I began; line upon line; precept upon precept in my journey to becoming what I hoped was a model Mormon. I felt that I had reached the pinnacle of forgiveness for every sin I remembered and had repented of, when my husband was called as bishop of the newly organized Sherwood Park second ward. The very next day we were involved in an accident as passengers in the mission owned vehicle and were badly injured.

Live-Chat With a Mormon Missionary! Posted by Keith on Apr 30, in Blog 41 comments We received an e-mail from Bob Betts who works with Concerned Christians in Mesa, Arizona about a new website that the Mormons have that is designed for those who are interested in Mormonism. Through this new investigator web site , it is possible to log on and chat live with a Mormon missionary.
I logged on and chatted with Jason. It is long, but a quick read and well worth the time. Be sure to pass this website out to other Christians so that we can keep the LDS Missionaries busy hearing the truth.
The notion of the Mormon mission as a crucible is a common one, and the benefits gained from going through it have been used to help explain the prominence .
For more context on this post, click here. Then, it happens every time: I start doing a little less. I begin to see the shine taken from my eyes. I feel as if an ever-so-slight layer of mud is packed over my heart that grows a little thicker each day. I feel more easily incensed by the atrocities in the world, but not in a way that makes me seek to improve them, only to condemn those at fault.
I have a little volcano bubbling underneath my outwardly calm surface.

A deeper study of those grounds only adds to the controversy regarding Mormonism and reveals the disturbing truth about its real god.

The most blatant symbol is the inverted pentagram.

Dating a Mormon – For the person considering it Post date: March 19, Mormon people tend to be sincere, dedicated, and generally all-around nice people. Foundational to their belief system is that they belong to the one true church. According to their church leaders, the Mormon Church is the only right religion on the face of the earth. They will gladly say that all religions have some truth, but no other pastor, bishop, priest or spiritual leader has any spiritual authority except for the leaders of their Church.
Depending on how committed the Mormon person is to their church, you can expect varying degrees of insistence that you yourself become a Mormon.

Lyman Amasa enjoys art, music, and traveling. Some day he hopes to make it to Romania and settle down. Men search the world for women that they can stand to be around with long-term. Narcissism, androgyny, obsession with pop culture—the problems with Western women go on and on. Is there some place, a secluded land untouched by time, where women still make good wives?
Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. Because Mormons retain old-fashioned values, Mormon girls are raised in a traditional environment by good fathers. They value femininity, motherhood, and masculinity in men. This makes them overwhelmingly successful wives and mothers. Lok for certain things:

How to Be a Better Parent Parenting is, largely, the act of raising children. Considered literally, the phrase “raise children” means to lift them up: to raise the skills, attitudes, and abilities of budding young people and help them become upstanding adults.
What can I do? Based on the experiences of other parents, and on my experience with the church, the church will gradually become a surrogate family for your son, and thus weaken your relationship with him. If he really gets involved in it and they will pressure him to become more “active” he will spend more and more time on church activities, associate more and more with his fellow Mormons, and have less and less to talk with you about, since you cannot possibly “understand” his new spirituality.
Ultimately he will be taught that his position in heaven will depend on whether he marries a good Mormon woman in the temple, and he will be pressured to do so. Since only good Mormons are allowed into the temple, you and all his non-Mormon family members and friends will not be invited to the wedding. Often the interest in Mormonism is a romantic friendship with a Mormon.
Our daughter is dating a Mormon, What can we do?
I talk of Christ. In any relationship or organization, all differences compound difficulties. One of the hardest parts of community “unity of more than one person” is working out differences. With that foundation, every major difference that exists in a marriage compounds the potential for future difficulty – and religious difference is a major difference.
Can it be overcome? Having said that, the following are multiple sides of the issue:

We would help them to know of the love Christ has for them. We would do all that we can to help prepare them to receive the saving ordinances of the gospel. Surely, if the Atonement of Christ was foremost in the minds of ward and branch leaders, no new or reactivated member would ever be neglected. Because every soul is so precious, leaders will counsel together to see that each one is taught the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Casualty of a Girl Waiting for a Missionary: My Perspective on Dating There is a missionary related issue that is unique to Mormon culture that has been bugging me for thirty years. It is Mormon young women who wait for missionaries. Everyone laughs about it and thinks it is kind of a harmless ritual. Anyone who has ever served a mission knows just how weird sisters and elders are that have a special someone waiting for them back home.
It is probably the biggest distraction and psychological problem that a missionary faces as they waste hundreds if not thousands of hours obsessing about hearing from them. I have known elders that spent every waking minute in the company of another elder doing nothing but talking about this girl and how beautiful she is and how when he goes home he is marrying her. They would read to you every letter even when you would tell them to shut up and knock it off.
Even today I read blogs of groups of young women who are waiting for their special someone. I looked forwarded to the elder getting a Dear John so he could get back to missionary work. I only know of one or two cases where the girl actually married them. Most of the time the breakup was a non-issue but every now and then some of the elders went off the deep end for a while. I vowed never to be like that. In fact I have trained all seven of my daughters and my one son to avoid a serious boyfriend or girlfriend like the plague.
Missionary (LDS Church)
Not long ago I received an email from a college-aged girl who says she is a Christian. In part, she said spelling intact , My boyfriend is mormon and i am christian and i am trying to witness my christian faith but do not have all the answers. Any advice or help you can give would be much appreciated! Here is my response to her: Thanks for writing me. Yes, I have studied Mormonism since the early s, much longer than you have been alive!!!
My wife never touches me I am quite frustrated in my marriage and it stems from issues of sex and intimacy. I have been married for 15 years, and we have four children, the youngest just started Kindergarten. My marriage has devolved into almost a roommate situation. My wife has no interest in sex, and she never shows me any affection whatsoever.
It has ignited something of a firestorm. The statement was apparently first written in by Von G. Keetch, who was at that time chief outside legal counsel for the Church and is now a Seventy. Elder Keetch has represented the Church in several cases about child and sexual abuse. We might think that such experience would position him to speak frankly about the problems that the LDS Church, like many other religious organizations, has experienced with members and leaders abusing children.
Why is the Church recycling this statement now? This man fled Louisiana in when officials there had a warrant for his arrest on charges of child sexual abuse. He has eluded capture for nearly four decades, first in Brazil and then in California. But the question is: These are enumerated blow by blow in an excellent response on Feminist Mormon Housewives , but let me recap a few of the most glaring errors.
