Re: New seminary rules and raising the bar

I still use the cover to cover method to read the book of Mormon. By reading it cover to cover it keeps me engaged and I feel like I am getting somewhere and each night after reading my regular scheduled reading I then find something of interest from what I read or have been wondering about and stud...

Re: Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God

Please feel free to post your testimony of a living prophet and if you don't have one feel free to read the testimonies of others feel the spirit and gain one.

The Lord calls prophets in His church. I testify that Thomas S. Monson has been called of the Lord and is a prophet of God.

Let's not soon forget we all currently being tested and are partaking of the Lords School. We have our agency and so do the students.

Re: New seminary graduation requirements

It's hard because so many kids play video games or are on electronics in general. Most kids don't read the scriptures at all at least now they will be required to. I think it's a great move as in our stake the kids that read the Book of Mormon during seminary was under 20%.

Re: I've turned into a Julie Rowe skeptic

Do you tell the person that you were unable to help that it is their fault? I do not fault men for not having the power to heal my daughter.

Re: I've turned into a Julie Rowe skeptic

So it's the leaders of the church at fault because you were not healed? Wouldn't you just be better off or equal in saying it's God's fault for not giving you the answers to be healed or healing you? Btw, as much as I would love to ignore the falsehood here.... I absolutely do not equate any mans v...

I was at a wedding reception about 12 years ago and President Monson walked in with his wife.

I sat there thinking if the Savior was here he would have do...
