just curious if anyone put off having kids because the end was so close.
or because of you're "ministry" or lack of suitable mates..

the messages contained in these two books for children are quite profound and can be taken on board no matter what age you are.

today we celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and my sons 16th birthday.
i feel privileged to be able to show my appreciation and love for both the men in my life without feeling guilt.
we left in 2009 as a family and have not regretted the choice.

i like a nice steak but cooking one can be a little intimidating and the results hit and miss especially when it comes to getting the right temperature so getting it wrong can be an expensive mistake.
can anyone do that "finger and thumb together to check the doneness" thing?
i can't .... so i came across this cooking technique called "sous vide" which cooks food (in a sealed vacuum bag) in a warm water bath, even steak.

i need the advice of those of you who are exjw's on what to do about my still in mother.
briefly, here's the situation: i am a born-in, never got baptised (thank the fsm), became an athiest about 2015 but haven't come out to anyone but my wife and some trusted friends.
my mother was raised in the society and is a true believer, but was never as strict about it as some parents are when i was growing up.

since when does the organization of jehovah's witnesses prohibit the celebration of birthdays?
and who in particular has officially imposed such an interdiction within this organization?
this prohibition has no biblical foundation, but plays a vital role in separating families, making non-jws out to be idolaters in the eyes of jws...

just had to share some good news in our family - my granddaughter has her car packed and she's getting moved into the dorm at her university tomorrow morning!
all day i've been thinking about how fantastic it is when you know without a doubt that a precious kid has absolutely made the right decision for their life.
we have hoped so much that she would be able to attend college.. she graduated high school this past may and qualified for a scholarship to a wonderful school.

they seem to be rebelling by studying every aspect of the military behind their mother's back.
i tell them to keep their noses clean and become coasties if they must trod that path.
is this par for the course?.
