Re: The Ensign - worth it?

There is also another thread asking why our leaders have made no new announcements. I'm not sure what people want with new information, especially when there is SO MUCH to learn from what the Lord has given to us already. The Book of Mormon, for example, is a platform from which we can learn the my...

Re: The Ensign - worth it?

My in-laws still subscribe. My MIL still reads it. When it's left on the table, I open it up and start reading. I close it after about ten seconds and push it back where it was. The book of Isaiah for me, please. And Second Nephi. Yes! After reading Avraham Gileadi's stuff for a year, pretty much e...

Re: The Ensign - worth it?

Now we're reduced to memes and conference quotes set to music. If you want the good stuff, you have to hunt for it. The good thing is, there's lots out there, and it's pretty easy for even us out here in the "mission field" to find nowadays.

Thank you for writing this, marc. The things you wrote about helping the homeless helped confirm some thoughts I've been having as I've been trying to help a woman I've met in similar circumstances. I'm pretty sure God told me to help her, but has not told me how. I think He's leaving that for me t...

Re: Best vegetable seeds to have for next Great Depression?

Lowes and Home Depot both carry a 16 16 16. I have been doing Mittleider for over 10 years. The science of growing a garden as far as I am concerned. I've noticed that what the big-box stores carry is pretty dependent on where you live. Here in central Texas, the best you can find there is 13-13-13...

Re: Best vegetable seeds to have for next Great Depression?

I have 4 years worth of Mittleider Fert/supplies and it takes very little room (fits in one of those 27gal blk/yellow totes), also I could easily reduce the frequency on intervals to lengthen that out. The yields are at least double using this method, and well worth the effort! This is true. Accord...

Re: Best vegetable seeds to have for next Great Depression?

I do have a concern with Mittleieder methods. They reject the idea that you must cultivate and build the soils, instead just use chemical products. What happens when they run out? I would rather learn how to build a living soil. Probably the same thing that happens when you run out of natural ferti...

Here's a little more back story on the incident, including an interview with the girl. Apparently, she was the first one up to speak that day, and after her speech, the stake president regulated the rest of the testimony meeting to invite-only. I guess she had invited some friends to come hear her. ...

Same here, marc. We heard a talk today in our ward about obedience, but the gist of the talk was essentially how we obey ourselves into heaven, without really mentioning the atoning and sanctifying power of Christ. I'm in the bishopric (not the bishop), and we let it go. I know our bishop knows this...

It would be nice to define what the real complaint is against women, because that is what this thread feels like - one big women bashing party, and just throwing out labels.
