i love this face to face.
As always, I enjoyed listening to the apostles' insights on important questions of our day. One part concerned me, however. When Elder Oaks talked about how if we don't date now we may become to old to marry, I thought about how sensitive and heartbreaking this is for those of us, many of us who

I am so thankful for the people who serve in our church, and constantly strive to represent Jesus Christ. I am also thankful that they seek to give us direction, and don't just try and give a blanket solution for us. God loves us so much that he's given us the freedom to choose, and the right to

Answered my questions. This is a time to talk with each other face to face. To build a good habit to use those social media and technologies .it's a challenge to missionaries to use technology
I really enjoyed the event last night. However, a question came to mind while Elder Oaks and Ballard were telling the men to get a move on with asking the women out on dates. What are the Brethren's thoughts about sisters asking the men out on a date? Is there a reason the emphasis is placed on the
The best hour and a half of my week! Elder Oaks and Elder Ballard really changed my paradigms. Thanks so much!
They invited our mission to participate in this Face to Face and I am so glad we were able to see it they were excellent questions wonderfully answered by Elder Oaks and Elder Ballard that pertain to both me as a missionary now as well as me as a return missionary in the near future.

What can people do when they have bad priesthood leaders? That shouldn't be a thing, but it is...I've heard from several friends who have had judgmental, sexist, or simply uncompassionate bishops. How would you deal with that and why does the Lord allow these people to lead His congregations? Also,
