Anonymous asked: Can I have some advice? I was looking through the mormon tags and was appalled at the porn I found under that tag. In response, I have started up my own blog with an intentionally similar name to try and promote wholesomeness when others come here to look for the worst. I don't have many followers and just got a porn blog following me. Do you think it is worth it for me to keep the blog and try to fight this industrialized beast?

This has little to do with your question, but I’m going to offer advice to everyone anyway: Block the porn blog followers so you don’t see them on your dash and when using the search function, click the padlock icon to block adult oriented material. 

Now, if people are going to your blog specifically looking for pornography or anti-literature, chances are they won’t stick around and read about prophets and apostles. Still, it definitely won’t hurt and there is always the possibility of helping someone who gets a shock to their system when they strike righteous gold on a search for filth. 

As for whether or not it’s ‘worth’ the effort of maintaining a blog, that all depends on you, dearie. Sorry I can’t be of any help but it’s a personal thing that only you can weigh based on the value you assign to time spent, effort given, frustration gained, and chance that some amount of good will come out of it.

Anonymous asked: I have seen a few posts which talked about how anon hate is so powerful because the recipient reads it in their own voice. i hope that anon love is equally powerful for the same reason.

When it comes to anon hate/trolling, I read it aloud to my husband in what I call the ‘hipster voice’ and powerful is NOT the word I’d use XD But the right dose of anon love definitely hits the spot <3

Why all the anons?

Like, even the fun questions about beauty and the beast or garments or whatnot. Anon is really meant for the people that have a question that they’re too embarrassed/afraid to ask or a comment they’re too shy to express. If you have an awesome discussion topic or a general suggestion you want me to take seriously, why hide?

Anonymous asked: God isn't real.

sorry you think that. 

ever actually test that theory?  I invite you to read The Book of Mormon cover to cover with an open mind and heart, pondering the things that you read and sincerely praying about whether they are not real =)

Anonymous asked: Just watching beauty and the beast. Two things stood out to me. The first is that the beast reads like a little boy who hasn't read in a long time. The other thing is that the big difference between Gaston and the beast was a desire to change.

So much about Beast is childish at first. His forced attempt at politeness, his stubbornness and bad attitude when he didn’t get his way, his messy way of eating. The part where he is essentially learning how to read is just adorable <3 And yes, though I do largely attribute that to their surroundings. Gaston was surrounded by people who thought he was perfect the way he was while Beast had the loving support of his servants who all tried to help him be on his best behavior. Plus, Belle actually spent quality time with Beast but never stayed in the same place as Gaston for too long.

Anonymous asked: I always heard the best way to know that someone doesn't have an attack with any substance is when all their attacks are personal.

Ad hominem. 

Not only is the version Mormonized (as I call it, meaning no profanity or vulgar concepts), I think it also makes it more relate-able to a wider audience =) It says don’t worry about your size, inner beauty is what’s important. big or small, it’s what’s on the inside that counts ^_^ great message for a great cover

Going to celebrate my mom’s 50th b-day! We got her a bird house she wanted and Eli got her a couple pics of himself, because when you’re THAT cute your photo really is a gift. ;D

out of all of the sort of maybe would be could be should be Doctor Who (2005) romantic pairings, 12&amp;Clara is my all time favorite. In fact it&#8217;s the ONLY romantic pairing that I really enjoy on the show. 
I kind of have a thing for darker, intelligent, somewhat broody-brood older male characters and younger, smart, bold female companions getting together (talkin&#8217; bout RumBelle, my otp. Also rushxmandy in sgu).

The Lord told Joseph of his destiny:

“The ends of the earth shall inquire after thy name, and fools shall have thee in derision, and hell shall rage against thee;

“While the pure in heart, … the wise, … and the virtuous, shall seek … blessings constantly from under thy hand.”

Why does the Lord allow the evil speaking to chase after the good? One reason is that opposition against the things of God sends seekers of truth to their knees for answers.

There are those who chronically misunderstand the Church because they are busy trying to explain the Church from the outside. They are so busy believing what they want to believe about the Church that they will not take the time to learn what they need to learn about the Church. They prefer any explanation to the real explanation. Some prefer to believe the worst rather than to know the truth. Still others are afraid to part the smokescreen of allegations for fear of what they will see. Yet one cannot see the Louvre by remaining in its lobby. One cannot understand the Church by remaining outside. A non-believing but fair critic of the Church, a friend of mine, once said that the Book of Mormon was the only book some critics felt they did not need to read before reviewing it.

Some dismiss the Church out of hand for not being trendy in its theology and for being authoritarian. To such I say, better a true theocracy with a little democracy than a democracy without any theology. Yes, the kingdom of God is a kingdom; there is no “one man, one vote” rule between its King and its citizens.

Some insist upon studying the Church only through the eyes of its defectors—like interviewing Judas to understand Jesus. Defectors always tell us more about themselves than about that from which they have departed.

-Neal A. Maxwell, “All Hell Is Moved”

Lowering the Lord’s standards to the level of a society’s inappropriate behavior is—apostasy.
