Benefits of a Wild Lifestyle

What do Mormons miss by believing what we do?

Being drunk, upchucking our lunch on the seat of our car or on our friends. And hangovers! Don't forget missing hangovers!
Dang, what a loss.

Getting pregnant out of marriage. What? You didn't know we don't believe in waiting until marriage for sex? That's right, no sexually transmitted diseases either.
Another dang.

Getting high on drugs, addiction, losing family and friends as we go in a downward spiral to homelessness.
Skipped stupidity there too.

Missing out winning the lottery or hitting the jackpot in Vegas.
I can't believe we'd miss the chance to blow paycheck after paycheck hoping on a billion to one odds of making it all back. But we don't gamble!
Triple dang.

we don't curse
we don't smoke
we try to eat healthy
we don't look at pornography
we try to help others as often as we can
we believe in spending time with family, we even reserve Monday for Family Night
we go to Church
we pay tithing
we believe in being honest

Boy what a limiting lifestyle.
So why are Mormons so healthy and happy?

Beats me!!

Maybe it's because we miss out on all the things that make people stupid and have a life filled with guilt and loneliness.

Having a Close Family

Is that word in the title close, as in near to each other, loving feelings towards someone else or does it mean shut?
Actually it is the one that means near to each other as in loving feelings toward each other.

No wonder people have a hard time learning English!

Parents have always struggled with the question of how to keep their family strong - there I go again - not strong as in muscles, but loving and actually speaking to each other in loving ways instead of pounding on each other or yelling or arguing with each other.

Mormons have the same issues everyone else does when it comes to family.

They have children who always do what they should, some who never do what they should, and some who just get their fun out of driving their parents crazy.

But Mormons have something the rest of the world doesn't. A tool to use to keep family members playing and having fun together, talking together and working together.

That tool is Family Home Evening.
As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are asked to reserve Monday nights as Family Night, a night where family comes first, everything else second.

As part of this night, the family gathers, talks about things important to the family, discusses spiritual matters or has a short lesson on some aspect of the gospel of Jesus Christ, something entertaining like a game, and then the part everyone looks forward to, a treat or dessert of some kind.

Before all this we generally begin with a prayer and sing a song together. We also end the evening with prayer.

Do all members have Family Home Evening?

Would they have closer families if they did?

Why don't they?
Just like everyone else in the world, they have things that distract them from the things that would really help.

This is something every family, regardless of beliefs could benefit from.
Take the idea, adapt it to your family and try it out. Even pick a different day if Monday isn't right for you. It's something that can bless you and your family and keep them close - the loving kind.

Mormon Missionaries

I don't know many people who have not seen either the two young guy missionaries or two girl missionaries going from house to house or riding bikes or driving a car around your town.

Some people start the vacuum cleaner up when they knock on their door. Some people just don't come when they knock. Some open the door and yell at the missionaries. Some even threaten them. Some missionaries have been beaten up.

So, what are they doing, these threatening young missionaries.

They, at age 19 for the young men, age 21 for young women, decide to spend from 18 months to 2 years sharing a message about the gospel of Jesus Christ having been restored after being lost when Christ and the apostles died.

They save up their own money and pay their own expenses to do this.

They give up their time to do something they believe in.

Do they force people to listen?

Do they get angry when people say they aren't interested?

Do they intimidate people into listening?
Nope. Well, I have heard of young guy missionaries who are 6 foot 10 inches and about 300 pounds that knock on the door and invite people to listen to their message. I think anyone looking up at that mass of missionary would be intimidated. They are big, but gentle.

How many of these missionaries are there?
About 55,000 around the world.

The guys go out for 2 years, the girls for 18 months. Why the difference? My guess is that they have the girls wait until they are 21 to see if they want to get married before going on a mission. In my mind and thoughts, being a mother is the best thing a woman can do. Sharing the gospel is important, but being a mother comes first. Just my thought.

Again, why do they all do that, year after year, new sets of missionaries learn the language of the country they go to. They learn Tongan, Chinese, French, German, Finnish, Swedish, Danish and on and on and on. They learn to love the people they teach.

They do it because there isn't another church on the earth that has the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, with the restored priesthood authority from God to do his work on earth and the ordinances required by God to return to him. The missionaries know they are bringing the truth to the people of the world. That's why they do it.

How much success do they have? Some missionaries are very successful and baptize dozens. Others baptize one or two. Some baptize none.

So, do the ones that don't baptize anyone feel like they wasted their time?
Some do. Others feel like they planted seeds of truth with the people.

In my mind, one thing that happens to most of them is that they learn what they believe, how to teach, how to deal with people, how to deal with rejection, how to be an adult.

Missionaries are just like everyone else. Some are happy, some sad, some enthusiastic, some amazing, some lazy, many just the kid next door trying to do what's right and share the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

They have the truth and can share it with you. If you are searching for truth, call them and listen.

It can change your life.
