answering your questions, one search term at a time

As you might know, the WordPress site that hosts our blog has a stats page that lists the search terms that directed people to our blog (meaning the person googled these questions, and google sent them to this blog). I often check that list purely because some of the searches make me laugh. So, inspired by this series at By Common Consent, I have answered some of the questions below:

Question 1: am i a mormon feminist
Answer: YES! Probably. Hopefully. Yes!

Question 2: see you next month same time at our home
Answer: I see you are perhaps trying to divine  hidden meanings in that casual phrase your visiting teachers or home teachers tossed out as they left your abode, but….they probably just said it to simplify finding another time to meet with you.

Question 3: lds feel like i have no talents
Answer: Nooo! See this and also this and also you might enjoy this! 

Question 4: scrub woman who had the boring task of scrubbing a set of stairs … every day.
Answer: Wow that sounds like a really suck-y task. Why did she have to scrub them so much?

Question 5: mormon faminists
Answer: Sometimes I do feel like Mormon feminism is in a famine! So many women fasting for answers, so much spiritual starvation for nurturing and progress in the church! But you probably just meant Mormon feminists so ….nevermind

 

hellfire pills

 

Question 6: mormon diet pills

Answer: Do these exist? Are they the reason there are Mormon faminists?

Maybe the pills are just filled with good old Mormon guilt? Or perhaps they’re a desired alternative to Utah’s extremely high rates of plastic surgery? 

 

 

Question 7: utah mormons church in river
Answer: A church in a river?! That actually sounds kind of cool, like a river boat chapel! If this is a real thing, someone please alert me in the comments!

Question 8: how to be a good hometeacher at byu
Answer: Great question. I hope google directed you to our posts that provide a little advice- home-teach the girls even if you don’t find them attractive, and don’t judge your hometeachees for their feminist beliefs.

Question 9: how to wait for a sister missionary
I am so excited to hear stories of men waiting for their missionaries as so many women have often done. You might be interested in Derrick’s post about waiting for his missionary. 

And there’s many, many more where those came from.

    I have always thought that the idea of having a floating temple like on a cruise boat or “house boat” / “river boat” would be a great solution for those islanders who usually (or so
    I’ve heard numerous times in conference and mormon circles) have to save up so much money to fly to another country to go to temple for their probably first and last time because it is such a huge sacrifice. Why don’t we (one of the richest churches- who have plenty of money to build a mall) build a floating temple to go back and forth between these islands .
    the answer I received was “because the devil rules the waters” ???

    anon – That was actually considered during David O. McKay’s time as prophet. You can read about it in “David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism” by Gregory A. Prince and William Robert Wright.
