    Mormon Struggling With Life, Bulimia, and An Inactive Family Member

    Hey guys! Well as the heading said I am a member, but I am also strugging with various things in my life. One would be that I don't know what to do with my life, I am in high school, and you're probably thinking that I would want to go to BYU and then get married and then have...

    Counsel For Young Missionaries And Youth Of The Church

    Inspiration: 1 Corinthians 7 and earnest prayer to know the truth behind these things. If a young man wants to best prepare for a mission, then he must have no girlfriends. Having a girlfriend is the same as pairing up no matter what you might rationalize. Therefore, have only...

    Post-mission

    Hey guys, I just got back from serving my mission in Chile. It was one of the greatest experiences ever in my life! I saw the Hand of God so much during that time. Well now I'm just chilling at home wondering if anyone would like to chat. I have a lot of freetime at the moment.

    I Am A Daughter Of God

    Awhile ago, I was lost. I didn't know who I was. I lost my faith in God and thought I could do it all on my own. I was so wrong. I made mistakes, many mistakes. I watched the boy I love recover from some serious mistakes he made and repent and saw how happy he is now. I got down...

    However, I am a bad mormon.

    I don't and never will give any money to church, I don't pray, I don't believe in any miracles or gods, and I eat whatever I please, but the idea of marrying more than one woman resonates with my beliefs, therefore I chose to be a mormon, although, as I mentioned above, I'm not...

    Circumcision

    The Bible discourages circumcising Gentiles who are grown adults. This is because being circumcised is not a necessity to enter into the kingdom of heaven as the Jews previously thought. And the Jews previously thought a man had to be circumcised to enter into heaven because it...

    Inactive But Still Strong.

    I was born and raised in the church. I did enjoy going to church every Sunday and going to mutual, and I even enjoyed going to girls camp, even though I am super shy and quiet. It was just recently that things got pretty bad. Me, not the church. In October of 2011, I got...

    I guess you can say that I'm "devout"

    or a "TBM (True-Believing-Mormon." But I allow myself to be skeptical and to question things because that's what the doctrine has taught me to be and to do.

    Revealing Mysteries Is Not Just For The Prophets

    Yeah. That's Right.

    I am. I'm proud to admit it. Mormonism, despite many false accusations, is a lovely religion to be a part of. We have a fantastic prophet, who just... I dunno... has an aura of goodness just by seeing him on television during one of our general conferences. We have families, that...

    A Second Endowment Does Not Seal Eternal Life

    I personally believe that a person's calling and election is NOT made sure through a second endowment. I believe this because we are saved by grace, and not works, lest any man should boast because of works. Thus, Prophets cannot seal this great blessing through temple work. This...
