  1. oops! I’ll try not to cuss so much anymore. my bad!

  2. however, you can now say b—ch & a– on TV these days.

  3. I was just sustained as CTR 7/8 teacher last week and we’re practicing for the program on 8 Nov. I enjoyed the comments on this website. I’m a retired, never married woman. I grew up as an only child where my dad wasn’t LDS and my mom was inactive, in San Francisco. Fortunately, most kids in my Primary and MIA classes didn’t have the temple marriage family either so I didn’t feel that “out of it.” But in my current ward in an SLC suburb, there are inactive parents, part-member families, etc. I think it is important to get the point across that we can love and respect our parents who may not be living according to church principles. I do NOT have any ideas on how you would handle a situation where the parents are abusive. As several others have said, we do need to be sensitive and teach with the Spirit and ask the Lord to make us sensitive to the needs of the precious children in our charge as Primary workers. That probably sounds “pollyanna”-ish but I think it’s the best we can do.

  4. So… just wondering if anyone has a story about the value of work or the value of learning that they would like to share thanks!

  5. Hi;

    I recently posted a comment responding th the topic Polygamy or Priesthood, by a guest poster. I haven’t seen it appear, and a note appears that my “comment is awaiting moderation”.

    I am interested to know why it is being reviewed. Is something in my comment controversial, or have some other reason to not be posted?

    Can one of the moderators please contact me at familylife at mstar dot net and let me know?

    thanks

  6. Sorry, Debra. I’m not quite sure why it got caught. It’s out of moderation now.

  7. Thank you for your great ideas with The Creation lesson. I have used this website once before in preparation of my Relief Society lesson and found some wonderful insite and ideas.

  8. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to
    produce a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  9. I found this interesting.. maybe you will too? Is it too harsh?? or ok ?? http://www.gotoquiz.com/know_your_religion_lds

  10. I was baptized October 2012 and called to be a Relief Society Teacher several months before my endowment November 2013. I am loving but also struggling with this calling in that I can lecture and talk (nearly 50 years instructing in and around military) but have little or no experience as a facilitator. Life is further complicated by the fact that I too have been a feminist since before most of the faces I see on this site were born. And, few if any of the women in our RS are feminist. The majority of the women in our RS are life long LDS and very well studied LDS persons who certainly know doctine better than I do. I want to teach. I am not certain as to how I can reach them. My tasking is that of 4th Sunday…the topic is taken from conferences past. My topic for the end of this month is: TFOT “Teaching with the Power and Authority of God,” by D. McConkie. There is no built in question and answer section as in Teachings of Presidents of the Church. I pray and reserch; but this time I am a little stuck. I am hoping someone here may be able to give me some guidance. By the way, love the site. I thought I was the only feminist in LDS and didn’t dare share most of my thoughts about feminism. I do tend to work them into some of my talks in RS and in Sacrament Meetings; but, I am in a very strong traditional LDS area and some of my questions and ideas raise eyebrows. I wasn’t born in the church, I chose the church.
