antodav asked: To the last Anon: the pressure to get married is cultural. Not doctrinal. The Brethren have taught, "long courtships, short engagements". If you don't feel ready to get married, don't. That may be the Spirit telling you you have not found the right person yet. Don't worry about the judgement of other people. Only focus on what God wants and is best for you.
Anonymous asked: I feel guilty. I don't want to get married and all my friends keep going on and on about it. I'm a girl and having grown up in the church I feel like I should, but I don't think I'd be happy. I'm 19, and I just hate the pressure of this religion to get married after three weeks and to get married while still in college!
DONT WORRY. I FEEL THE SAME WAY. Instead of focusing on not getting married or focusing on everyone else getting married, focus on bettering yourself as a person. My motto is fall in love with God and yourself and the rest will fall into place. The pressure is never really on dont worry, marriage comes when youre ready -kim
To The Anon Asking About the Temple Recommend and Your Sister:
I really wanted to answer your question but it had some detailed stuff in it that I didn’t think was appropriate to post publicly. So if you could message me off anonymous on my personal blog so I can message back privately, that’d be awesome. If you want to.

Well we try to give the best advice we can. Just type at as much as you can, and separate it into multiple asks, then we’ll answer it in the final one.
Anonymous asked: So I've looked at porn and masturbated before and I feel super guilty. It's not a problem I have, it's just happened a few times and I have absolutely no desire to do it again, but I feel so bad and I feel like I'm never going to be forgiven. I've been repenting but I'm afraid I'll never feel forgiven or be worthy again. Is this something I need to talk to my bishop about?
Anon, you’re the bomb. the fact that you didn’t form an addiction, and still feel as bad as you do is a wonderful testimony of how godly sorrow works. I’m sure Heavenly Father has forgiven you, but if you really feel guilty about it still, just go to your bishop and talk with him about it. I’m sure he can help you sort things out.
and don’t ever think you’ll never be worthy again. Elder Holland has told us that “It is not possible to sink lower than the infinite light of Christ’s Atonement shines”.
Anonymous asked: why cant women be in charge of stuff like im not mormon so idk all the terms but its holding women back in society im not trying to call mormons out. basically every religion doesnt treat women equally..but i found this blog so i just decided to ask you guys about what you think
Oh, we can totally be in charge. I think it’s just skewed from the outside world, but there is equality within the church. Men hold the priesthood, but women don’t, and that’s seen as some major inequality. But it’s not. There are many reasons for this, but it can be debated forever. As a woman in the church, I don’t feel any inequality at all. I love that men have the priesthood, and I love my responsibilities within the church.
