re: #148 freetoken
You have clearly made your mind up. However, I would ask you to be cautious of your sources. I have seen articles written by people who claim to be Mormon which make me raise my eyebrows.
Recently, a woman wrote an article in which she said that Mormon women are supposed to do two things: Keep a journal and bear children.
First of all: Two? Two? If I were to make a list of things that LDS women feel they are supposed to do, the list would be longer than two.
Secondly: journals? The woman put this in there because she wrote and article about her mother’s journals. We are counseled to keep a journal, but frankly, it’s way down the list. Number fifteen or something. Frankly, any such list that doesn’t start with “Pray & read your scriptures” is inaccurate, at best. I don’t keep a journal, and I’m not losing sleep over it.
Thirdly: The last piece of official counsel about the number of children is that couples are supposed to jointly and prayerfully decide on the matter, and that it’s nobody else’s business. This was in one of the more recent General Conference talks.
