Re: Why is the age for waiting for temple work 110 and not 100?

It's also worth mentioning the 110 year rule only applies if you are unable to get permission from the closest living relatives for temple work. My mother is an only child and refuses permission for temple work to be done on behalf of her parents. The day she dies I will reserve ordinances for her ...

Re: Why is the age for waiting for temple work 110 and not 100?

The Seattle temple did have a cabinet, similar to a card catalog (for the old people here), where you could leave cards in a drawer for your stake. If you were lucky, someone would grab a card from there when they didn't have their own. But I haven't seen or heard of anything like that in any of th...

Re: The “shortage of Mormon men”

All of this makes it difficult, if not impossible, to believe there are good women out there who want a man more than they want a provider of money. Actually not all are. True, many Mormon women would never wear see-through blouses to the mall or a bikini at the beach but they are more immodest tha...

Yep. And you can believe the ones that have husbands that leave gain all the sympathy from the members and some eat it up.

Re: Why is the age for waiting for temple work 110 and not 100?

It is in every Utah temple and quite prolifically used. If you need support in getting names done in the temple you should talk to the HP group leader in your ward, that's part of his responsibility. I have mentioned it to the high priest group leader, bishop, and lead temple and family history con...

Re: What's a good age to become a high priest?

Here's something important that needs to be mentioned: When an endowed man dies, it's the duty of the high priests to dress his body for the funeral. When I think about wanting to become a high priest, I think about this duty and suddenly I'm not in so much of a hurry to become a high priest.

I think that is incorrect. It doesn't make any sense; it is illogical. Authority and office are not the same thing.

Re: MAPPED: US Cities at Risk from Yellowstone ERUPTION - Millions Facing WAVE of Lava, Ash, Gases

And now volcanologists believe that it would only take a few decades for Yellowstone's magma chamber to fill to the point of an eruption, updating the previous belief it would take a few centuries.

In other words, it could possibly happen during my son's lifetime.
