My Dream Indicates that Anti-Genderism is Coming!

Here is my dream from last night.
I just had a dream last night that I was in a mall. The only shops there were gender-neutral. Great numbers of young adults were there celebrating with confetti in gawdy clownish costumes with make-up and wigs. They were singing, dancing and celebrating the absence of genderism in the mall and in society. They were dancing and sining all over the mall, up high, down low, climbing on displays which went to the ceiling and so forth. There were food courts and people were getting and eating a huge variety of foods, too. 

I heard that there was only one store owner in the mall that had not accepted this, and refused to sell gender-neutral things or allow anti-genderist groups to come sing and dance in his store.  I heard the history from someone, also. He had refused 20 years before, to allow a Lesbian group to come and perform in front of his store a very sexual and immoral dance with little to no clothing on. Ever since, nobody had shopped at his store, yet his shop was still there. His stood resolute with a determined look on his face, ready to sell his wares. I kept trying to get to this one unique store, but I could not. There were too many people in my way. Also, all my friends and family there with me at the mall were celebrating with the anti-genderists. (That is the name I came up with for them).

I think my dream includes symbolism. I think that perhaps this man who is the unique shop owner represents God himself, abandoned by the people of the world, yet still there, on the ready, determined and unchanging. I think that perhaps the mall represents the world. What of my role in the dream? Does this mean it will get increasingly more difficult to get God’s word in this world? Will there be blockages of people in my way? If so, I think I need to get to this “shop” now and just stay there. Of course, a person does not live in a mall. It is only a place one visits now and then. Will it be harder to get to the temple? Perhaps that is it. Perhaps this unique shop that will not let the world in, is the temple (of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). I think I need to go there more often! We all do!

October 2016 General Conference Quote: Elder Robert D. Hales, Quorum of the 12 Apostles

This is great advice for all parents and grandparents. I think it is really great advice for this LDS homeschool mom! I know it is about teaching the gospel for most, but for me it is about all of the homeschool teaching I do all week, as well. No training manual is better than scriptures praying pondering and seeking the Holy Spirit. The calling to be a parent gives us the ability to teach in ways right for our family. Awesome. Sometimes I forget that. We must not forget or set aside as unimportant, Family Home Evening. Family Home Evening is not a lecture from mom and dad. (We are guilty of that). Have fun together in Family Home Evening? We need to work on the “fun” part. I must not lose my patience and raise my voice in anger at my kids when I am frustrated during a homeschool day. This will make the Holy Spirit leave. This ultimate advice at the end is great for me: don’t give up!

LDS General Conference Notes Oct. 2015

My notes.
I do not have all talks here.I have not included General Womens Session, either. 

These are just the ones I happened to take notes on. During part of the Conference, I was not taking notes, but listening. I will have to go watch it all again. I am positive I have missed a lot!
Eyring

Constant companionship of the Spirit needed. We must have it constantly to not be deceived. As you ovpbey promptings, you will be prompted more and more until you have the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost.
Uchtdorf

Do not think leaders hiding things from you and go in search of secrets. Go to basics of gospel if wavering. Follow counsel of Apostles and Prophet. Trust them. When you have a stronger testimony, you will be able to understand deeper things.
Nelson

Covenant-keeping women need to have love, faith and devotion to husband and the Lord. Women who can spot deceptin in all its forms, needed. 
Ballard

Sabbath day rest, have love for the Lord at church and at home all of Sabbath day.
Holland

Mothers are so important.
Bednar

Quote from Elder Hales: “When you cannot do what you have always one, you only do what is most important.” Inability to do many things can help us focus on a few things which are more important.
Cook

Have our lives in “ship shape.” Always be temple worthy. Self-Control is like a muscle. Excercising self-control helps us to be stronger spiritually for other things in the future. Our conduct and appearance need to reflect Jesus Christ. Honoring the Sabbath strengthens the family. 
Christofferson

We do not seek converts to the church, but to Christ. The church is just the structure that supports converts to Christ. He explained why we need the church, and cannot just be spiritual, without the church.
Marriot (YW counselor)

Life does not end after death–It goes on. Ask in prayer what Heavenly Father wants you to do. Then ask, “Is there more?” Forget “my way.” Love “His way” more than my own agenda.
Lawrence (70)

Personal revelation: “What lack I yet?” Holy Ghost will give us customized advice when nobody else will tell us. Holy Ghost works with us at our own speed, line upon line. “What is keeping me from progressing?” Direction is more important than speed.
Viñas (70) 

Arriving to sacrament meeting late not a good way to honor the sabbath. Peace comes via repentence.
Foster (70)

Lead, guide, and walk beside your own children (and grandchildren). Remember when you were their age. Tell them what comes next. Give advice. Help them. Tell them you are there for them when they need you.
Standfill (70)

Follow the Light of Christ. Why would we listen to faceless people in the great and spacious building and ignore those who genuinely love us? Remember past spiritual experiences. Receive light brighter and brighter until the perfect day. The Holy Ghost’s light will become brighter for the righteous as the wickedness of the world increases.
Durrant (70)

1. save money every week

2. “ponderize” (memorize and ponder) a new scripture every week.
Keetch (70)

Parable! The surfers kept complaining about a barrier which kept them from enjoying themselves. Then guard let them look through binoculars. There were dorsal fins in the water that surfers had not been able to see with their naked eyes (which the guard had always seen). Spiritual barriers are there for our safety and protection. Apostles and Prophets can see things we cannot see. If we heed their counsel, we will be protected from harm.
Stephens (RS counselor)

1. I need to trust in God’s eternal plan for me. God puts me in a confining seatbelt (commandments) because He loves me. 

2. The Atonement is essential to eternal life. Love God. Love neighbor. Sacrament.

3. Keep commandments

4. Trust the Prophets.
Haynie (70)

Parable (True Story)! Muddy hole. Grandma would not let him in. He tried to run to back door. Finally he asked how he could be allowed to enter. She squirted him off with the hose. Christ’s Atonement makes us clean enough to enter God’s presence and shar in His inheritance. 
Clark (70)

People in the meridian of time–in the church. holy Ghost helped them to “see” and “hear” (parables). [Message I got: The Holy Ghost can help us today, to see and hear (parables), also]. Our day really hard. Really big challenges are here for us, just like for them in the meridian of time. Parents called to Phillipenes. Dad had asthma. Mom doubted. Mom heard Holy Ghost say in the night, “Don’t you think I know he has asthma?” He did not have problems with asthma on mission. [Message I got: God knows what He is doing. Do not doubt based on your limited mortal understanding. Trust Him.
Aoyagi (70) 

Be grateful for adversity. His phisical pain heled him to have compassion for others when they are in pain. Physical pain will be removed at resurrection.

HR 5 2015: The Frog in the Pot: “But It’s Only a Teensy Bit Warmer Now–Not Much!”

HR5 2015:
-Makes getting help for your special needs child very risky. If it passes, do not take your child to get special needs help from any program or institution which uses Federal government money. If you do, you could potentially lose your parental rights. (Unless, of course, you are very lucky).
-Denies parents rights over children when the parent takes federal money, by going to a school which accepted it. It does not say you could possibly lose the right to homeschool. It says you could potentially lose your parental rights! They want your parental rights! Your parental rights are worth more than money and they know that!
-Violates states’ rights from ammendment X by saying that the state will waive its rights to control education, when it accepts any money at all (even title one funds) from the Federal Govt. (Can you imagine a state not taking these funds?)

-Makes the local school board useless (not as if it is if any use now, with our state Governor having the power to apooint school board candidates). What we should be doing is working offense instead of defense, trying to pass something that says anyone can run for school board.

-Will destroy any private school that accepts money.

-Will threaten parents who have kids with special needs, who homeschool and send their child to a school to get (for example) speech help, from the district. These will unknowingly be accepting the potential to lose their parental rights, just because their child is benefitting from a program paid for by the Federal Government. The parents of America are completely foolish when it comes to politics, and will have no clue that they are signing up for this. Pediatricians will not warn them, because they will be just as clueless about this obscure law hidden in a 600 page ammendment to the Student Success Act.

HR 5 Student Success Act Ammendment of 2015 Scary
Some of you are only thinking of yourselves at this time: “How will this affect homeschoolers who do not accept or use Federal Dollars?” Many homeschool moms have been asking me on facebook about this.

Are you alone in this world? Are you an Island? Think of your family, friends and neighbors, too. Please care about them, too. They are not all homeschooling. Even your friend who homeschools her kids may go and use some district moneys because her child has special needs, Should this pass, will you warn her about this ammendment? Will she believe you? When things are not going well 5 years from now with her special needs child, will they say it is her fault for being imperfect at assisting the special needs child in becoming the way the United Nations wants the child to be (for a working population) and take her to court in order to take away her parental rights? What will you do then? Will you remember my warning and mourn, powerless?

I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Chile. In 1997, my companion and I met a girl who said that the military police had come and taken her sister, to put her in a mental institution, because mentally, her sister had not improved, so the parents had lost their rights to be in charge of their own daughter. The military police had come and taken their daughter, and they, powerless, had lost the right even to visit her in the mental hospital. I am so not kidding. I remember thinking of our freedoms here in the United States, and how that would never happen in the U.S. Never was too strong a thought.

I repeat: NEVER was too strong a thought. In 1997, you’d have said “never” mentally, too. But now? Would you now? If you would, you need to get new spectacles–Your sight is going bad.

Kline said it provides an opportunity to chart a new course. What new course? A course following Agenda 21, ICLEI and Earth Summit, ot will be, for sure. A course toward The New World Order it will be. Cradle to grave will have a whole new meaning if this passes. Read more about these here: Links, Etc. for Presentation at Winter Homeschool Conference

Already, everyone’s health information is not private, but Fed owned (unless you have signed a waiver at the doctor’s office). Already the Feds have eminent domain to take our land, and a right to control who has guns. Already they are asking me in the doctor’s office, “Do you own a gun?” Already, most of our cities, charities and Universities have ICLEI “sustainability” partnerships. Already, Common Core took over schools Unconstitutionally with bribe money (because Ammendment X says all powers not mentioned before that, are reserved to the states, so education decisions should belong to the states). Now they just want to go a step farther and secure their position a little bit more firmly.

What to do:

1) Call your U.S. House Representative (and if you want to, the others, who do not represent our section, Northernmost Northern Utah).

2) Spread the word to all in the nation. This is not a Utah thing. It is a U.S. thing.

3) Wait until our tracker on govtrack.us (link above) tells us it has or has not passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

4) If it passes, we contact  our U.S. Senators to make sure it does not pass the Senate.

If it does not pass the House and Senate, we celebrate.

5) If it passes House and Senate, President Obama will sign it into law for sure.

6) If that happens, we wait and watch as people more involved in politics who have attorney friends, sue Congress for making this ammendment which is unconstitutional, beause it is trying to steal states’ rights as granted in Ammendment X. We see how it will work just as effectively for the Mormons as did the Federal Judge who said states cannot stop LGBT marriages from being valid and cannot say no to performing them.

7) Then we cry lots.

8) Then we tell everybody that if they do not homeschool, they have lost their parental rights to be in charge of the education of their child.

“Oh, but this is just one teensy step farther. It isn’t VERY scary. It isn’t much.”

We are like the frog swimming in the water, slowly being boiled to death. We could hop out at any time, but we won’t because we are saying, “oh, it is just a teensy bit warmer–not much!”

So, o.k. Let’s just boil to death. It’s no big deal. Jesus will come save us. Let’s just sit on our haunches and wait for Him. He would for sure want us to just sit here and watch it happen.

Right?

Captain Moroni was awesome. Some of you do not know who he was. If all men were like him, the very gates of hell would be shaken forever:


Moroni was the Captain of the Army in the Pre-Columbian Americas who decided to fight for the liberty to worship God, protect their families, to protect their religion, and to protect their freedoms.


If all men were like unto Moroni, Resolutions like this HR 5 of 2015 would not exist.

Protect your families. Make sure this Resolution does not pass.

Please!

What is LDS Homeschooling?

LDS Stands for Latter-Day Saints. LDS people are Mormons. They are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can learn more about this church and its beliefs at About the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

LDS Homeschooling is teaching our children the Gospel of Jesus Christ, from doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in our homeschools, which is legal. Just like people of other faiths have the freedom right now, to teach their beliefs in their homeschool, so also do members of this church.

In the public schools, teaching religion is not allowed. Secularism is taught in schools. This is a freedom from religion in schools. It is not a respect for all religions, but a lack of respect for any religion in particular, keeping everyone from the teaching of any religious beliefs in the government-funded and government-run schools.

Secularism requires that the most recent theories developed by scientists who do not add religion to their theories, are taught to the students. Currently in the world, there are a great many political beliefs and philosophies of humankind taught in the public schools. In the U.S.A., I include the charter schools, since they are also controlled by the Common Core or an exact likeness of the same in most non common core states.

If you, your childrens’ other parent and your children are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, then there is no reason to feel guilty about the legality of or the time in your day, taken up in teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in your homeschool. You can start small and with something very simple, and add or change things with time.

Here is an idea for how to begin to teach the gospel during the daytime, family-home-evening style in a way that is cost-free, using free resources peprovided by the church.

I recommend that together, you sing primary song or hymn, followed by a family prayer (for all present). I call this the devotional, and do not do it every day. I just do it as much as possible. I would like it if I were more consistent, but I am o.k. with doing my best. You should be, too.

When you feel ready to move beyond having this simple devotional, you may wish to add some small additional item. It does not have to be formal. You can teach the gospel while working and talking together, or while walking and talking together!

Here are some free church resources to use as references and helps in the Gospel education of your kids:

The Childrens Illustrated Scripture Stories
The Scriptures
the primary manuals (organized by age)
the current or past year primary theme and lessons
The Childrens Songbook
The Hymn Book
“The Friend” Magazine
“The New Era” Magazine
The youth curriculum
“For the Strength of Youth”
“Gospel Essentials”
“Gospel Doctrine”
“The Truth Restored”
“Jesus the Christ”
