As always, the bloggernacle ignores the substance of the article and focuses instead on the seemingly more controversial or political issues related to it. Is it too straightforward for them? In addition, does anyone sincerely believe that Elder Nelson would have written this article for purely political purposes, or as a mere academic plaything for the self-appointed intelligentsia? When was the last time a Church publication discussed this issue in such detail? This sort of situation is, in part, what Elder Nelson is trying to address in his article, I think.
But even if Elder Nelson carefully planned the timing of this article, in collusion with the General Authorities and Church employees who oversee and run the Church magazines, so what?

Dating, Relationship and Other Advice for LDS Teens, Young Single Adults, and anyone else who could use a little help since from someone who cares enough to give it to you straight.

I was dating a guy for not too long and last night he decided to call me and tell me that he just wants to be friends. I told me that he was still attracted to me, was the most unique girl he’d ever met, and still liked me, felt connected to me emotionally and spiritually and physically, but he has liked girls more in past relationships. He told me that I was a girl that every guy was looking for and that when the right guy came along at the right time, that things will work out.
This guy also suffers from bipolar disorder and told me that he doesn’t deserve to be happy and it wasn’t in the cards for him to be happy. He also told me that he isn’t ready for marriage for various reasons and knew that I wanted to be in a relationship that was progressing toward marriage and he didn’t want me to waste my time waiting on him. I guess I’m just trying to sort out why he really broke up with me.

We picked some fun games we got some of the ideas from the church’s new mutual planning site HERE. I didn’t want to do anything that would embarrass anyone, so we picked games that didn’t require anyone to be singled out. We had multiple games prepared. I find that one game is not going to last the whole time – or keep their attention even if it did last the entire activity.

Filed under Pagadian City The Philippines, being a country archipelago of islands and seas, have naturally wonderful beaches, some of which are famous the world over. Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores.
However, if one will just look around more, they will find that there are other less-known but equally beautiful beach spots in other parts of the Philippines. In Pagadian, in particular, there are beaches and islands that will make one believe that there is such a thing as a secluded paradise on Earth. A nice place to start would be the Dao-Dao Islands some seven to ten minutes away from the seaport, when riding a motorboat.
It is a rather big island, with an area size of about 1. The coral reefs are artificially made, but the whole place is very much ideal for swimming, fishing, and boating. During low tides, a smaller, more undeveloped island appears and like the rest, is also suitable for fishing and swimming. There is also the White Beach that, as its name suggests, is a stretch of white sand beach just minutes southeast of the seaport.
Again, it can be reached via motorboat. The clear, deep, blue waters even during low tides are excellent for swimming and diving.
