For many years now I’ve been denied attending the temple which has caused a lot of anger towards the church. It’s been a childhood goal to go thru with my kids and husband. I’ve missed the opportunity taking 3 kids now. 3 are still eft in the home. I can’t attend all my classes and I thought I was doing so good attending Sacrament every Sunday. i was told recently I had to attend all my classes. My dream and hopes all shattered to pieces once again. I’m disabled and can’t sit for long periods of time. What can I do?
Have you discussed this issue with your Bishop? I mean did you explain your situation, your disability? Who said that you have to attend all your meetings to go to the temple? Was that your Bishop or something you heard in a class? I believe that a Bishop would be very willing to work with someone in your situation. If you feel that is not the case, please make an appointment with your Stake President and explain your situation to him.
I was hoping you could help me out. I served my mission and came back 14 months ago. No matter how many trials, the hardest part was to come back! Now, since I am back I feel like I am stuck and nothing really happens and my desire is still to go on a mission. Could I seriously consider to prepare for another mission? I am 27 and everyone around me seems to worry much more that I am not married. Could you share your point of view please?
ps. I love following your website
The simple answer to your question is “yes.” You can reach out to your bishop and stake president and request the opportunity to finish your mission. As to the last knowledge I had, there isn’t necessarily an age when a woman is not able to serve if she is still single. On my mission we had a sister who was on her second mission. She was 28.
I also know of a young lady who came home early due to health issues. She didn’t have any plans to go back out, until one day her heart changed. She contacted her bishop, stake president, and mission president and through counsel and prayer she finished her mission in her same mission. She had six months left and served for six months.
I am not sure of your situation, but it never hurts to ask and to humble ourselves to accept whatever answer is given from your bishop and stake president.
Do garments exist in colors other than white?
Thank you for your question. When it comes to available garment colors, other colors do exist beside the traditional white. With that said, those other colors are typically only reserved for those in the military or first responders like police or fire fighters. The Church does produce some colors like Desert Sand & Marine Green, which are made and ready for purchase as is. In addition service members and first responders can send in their own t-shirts of a variety of colors to the Church and the Church will adjust them and bring them up to garment standards. If you are a service member or first responder more information about this can be located on the Church’s order form: Garment Guidelines for Military, Police, or Fire Fighters
If you are not a member of these branches, white is the traditional color.
Thank you for your question Elias.
