"So I asked the general story about that and he was reluctant for a very good reasons for me to go to those meetings because if I was seeing my summary teachers take present that would be a challenge. And so when he said that I was almost relieved like, oh, I didn't want to go to that meeting anyway. Nobody really wants to go to the first meeting. They look forward to maybe others, but that first one's a tough one. Yeah, so anyway, but it was just I called it a perfect storm for all the wrong reasons. Talk about the loneliness. It was especially true for my wife. She didn't have really any did she go to our bishop until the bishop of the state prison struggling with this. It was just very, very difficult. Like he said, there's no template, right? And who knows if there is now, but just be worth like thinking through, like, even a steak president thinking through what if a bishop is struggling, you know what, how do I get those resources and help? And that's why everybody involved had the best intentions probably didn't handle everything perfectly. In hindsight. But here we are. Everyone tried. Yeah. They weren't tried their best at every level. But we've learned more in the last 7 or 8 years than we knew then as well. Yeah. And so after about a year, I still felt like I was doing well, but my wife was not in a good place and it felt like we were just treading water. You know, just for so long it felt like we were going to drown as I reached out to the general authority and asked him if I could visit with the area 70 who would come in occasionally, and he considered it for me to do that. And so I disclosed that there is 70 and he immediately tried to come in and help us sell, but it was difficult for him to, you know. And when you say help, as far as give counsel and encouragement, give count between maybe even some marriage counseling efforts there, but he wasn't a professional that. But again, he did the very best that he could. Did you seek professional counseling? I'm not initially, but eventually we did. My wife and I started going to a marriage therapist, addiction recovery therapist. We went to multiple and some had really good experiences in some sonata and I just realized that the landscape is kind of all over the map with regard to how people view this and with counsel they give. And the direction suggestions they offer. But anyway, it was somewhat helpful, but you know, with my wife's challenge of this and betrayal trauma and how difficult that was for her. I mean, ultimately, she decided that divorce was the best option and you know I support her and appreciate that that was decision she had to make. And this is you're still the state president when she's made this decision. I still present, but that was kind of the nail in the coffin there too. And so it was determined that we weren't going to immediately improve, and so it was determined to release me after 5 years until the whole state presence is released and new one was called and I love those men dearly and work with them all closely. Was it difficult to articulate that to the stake? These are such personal issues, but they affect things that are more public positions that are hard to do that? Well, yeah. I think I heard that the rumors going around this way..

"Don't want to go talk to the bishop for what reason. They're afraid of. They're going to excommunicate. They're afraid they're going to lose their membership. They're afraid some major things happening. And the council that I got when I was called to be the state president, from elder snow, who, at the time, was a president of the 70. He told 17 state presidencies that were being called, he said, you can not rescue young adults and then throw the book at them. I'm telling you. Very few disciplinary councils in our stake. Because it was about loving and rescuing and connecting and let's focus on that. And let's once again change that traditional cultural thing that you go in and you're going to have some harsh consequence that's going to happen by going and talking to some people that say, well, we're being a little bit too soft on them. So how would you approach someone comes in maybe they are having sexual relations with a significant other or whatever? It's not just, have you pornography, something like, wow, this is significant in your spiritual progression. What was your general approach to that? Yeah. Let me share a story that I think would answer that. I had a return missionary or I had a missionary that made it 7 days in the MTC. He wasn't in my stake. He went through his home stake to get his call and left. He had a serious girlfriend all throughout high school. And come to find out he was having sex with her up until the night before he left. He went to the MTC lasted 7 days. And then confessed and, of course, you know, what happens with that? He's going to obviously can say, oh, that's the right thing to do. So let's walk through what happened to this young man. He had to talk to his branch president of the MTC. When he confessed to his branch president, he had talked to the MTC president. Then he had talked to a general authority. Then he had to talk to his parents. His parents, and I wish this was an exception because this happened, I saw a few times, sadly, that his parents, when they were told what was going on, refused to come pick him up at the empty sea. Because they were so mad or embarrassed I don't know what. So his brother attending BYU picked him up and drove him back home up to northern Utah..

"Awards and this is the type of thing you see, you mentioned before we hit record that you see people just trying to reinvent the will again, which is difficult. So if you were to stand in front of a new group of leaders trying to start a YSA, where would you start with them? Oh, I just had that opportunity. So I went back east and I went also to another spot in the south where they brought me out to kind of just talk to the leaders and the people that were involved with trying to put together a young adult program. And it was really actually quite sad to me that we just call people and throw them into it and just go try to figure it out where this is why I love what you're doing with these podcasts because where else do people go to try to get ideas and who do they call and contact and I went out to visit and kind of gave some ideas and they were just so hungry for anything to start with. And fundamentally what needs to happen is I think the first thing is you need a really strong organizational structure because most of the wards and the stakes when it comes to young adults aren't really aware of the problem. And where I was the state president in Syracuse, that's northern Utah. This is the heart of the church. We had about a 25% activity rate. And that we didn't even have records of all the young adults in our area. So we had about 4500 records in our stake. There were about 8000 young single adults in our boundaries. If we were to have all those records, I guaranteed to be less than 25%. Yeah. And I was in a meeting in a coordinating council meeting with a group of state presidents and a visiting general authority was going around the room and asking us what our activity rate was. And he came to me and I said, well, we're about 25%. And he said, oh, no way. I said, yeah, and we have about 30% in activity rate amongst return missionaries. And so I use surprise it was high or low. It was the price it was that low. And then so I think that's the problem is we don't really know how big the problem is. And I know I'm biased, but I personally think this is probably the greatest challenge the church is facing right now because this generation is leaving at a very quick pace and there are many reasons why we can talk about that later on..

"Alive or something like that. Let me tell you a story. Love it. Three year old and a 5 year old fighting just outside the kitchen in earshot of mom for whom they're putting on this performance, by the way. Who is busy in the kitchen? Now, if I walk in that scene, I will figure out who did what to whom whose fault it is who started at UDC at punished. My wife would turn to the kids after they had about that enough and say, who wants to make brownies? Of course they want to make brownies. They immediately get engaged in that and have a wonderful time. And the truth is neither one of them could remember in the least what they were fighting about in the first place. Nor did they care. Because in truth, it didn't matter what they were fighting about. They were mostly fighting as they were bored. Or hungry. Or didn't get a good night's sleep. Or just didn't feel like they were being appreciated and respected and valued in the family, the way they hoped they would be. Yeah. The truth is that every organization is loaded with problems that richly deserve not to be solved. They did not deserve our time or attention, and they don't deserve a solution. They deserve to be passed over by purpose. Okay, so let's take this to an organizational setting in the church. Let's say that a bishop has a young women's president and a group of parents who are at odds with each other and the parents think she's doing it wrong and she's wrestling with them for control of the program and they're kind of going back and forth over weeks and months. What's the brownie equivalent of stepping into that situation? Whether the bishop or not, is just an example. What's the brownie solution there? It's a great, great example. Because the question that eating up the goodwill is process. You are doing this right. You are doing this the way we've always done it. You're not doing this the way we think we should do it. If you can get back to purpose and say, what's best for these kids? What we want them to become. What kinds of experiences will help them to become that way? That allows everybody to let go of the process questions. And get back to the purpose question, and it isn't even which activity should we pursue. It's what development what kinds of beings we want these young people to become. Almost never in life is the process, the purpose. The purpose is about becoming like the savior. So we can go home to God and stay there because we belong there. And if we say it to the parents, we recognize there's been some disagreement about how we've been doing things. And we expect that there is much of wisdom and love involved in those disagreements, because you want your children to go out to be the kinds of people who are even better than we are. What kinds of understandings what kinds of insights and inspiration will they need to have to become those kinds of people? What kinds of growth and service and work experiences do you think will help them have those feelings and understandings? How can we build that into our curriculum? And how can we engage them in that design process, but for that purpose? And that allows them to let go of all the other past processes, focus on the purpose and keeps the youth. And December may be entirely different than it say is this consistent with the handbook. And it almost always will be sometimes a little tweaking, but almost always will be. It's almost like the phrase you used was this problem doesn't deserve to be solved. It doesn't deserve our time and our energy to solve it. So we don't have to get to the bottom of it. We don't have to assign blame. We can actually just redirect the conversation back to why we're all here, take us back to shared identity, shared purpose, shared values, because we all want that, whether you're the parents or the young women's leader, you all want the same thing, right? And so if you can just start making brownies with them, then all of a sudden it doesn't matter. And then a little bit of trust as well that the gospel is true and the savior's atoning power is real and it can heal and when people reconnect to purpose, they'll probably also want to reach out and apologize. This is called the fine art of changing the subject. And there's this recalibration that's happening, right? Re-engaging people on the true purpose that you talked about. What are we trying to do here? We're all in the same team rather than I'm the bishop, so I get the final vote here. This is what we're doing and just be happy with it. But that recalibration is really important. It goes back to the importance of not who is right, but that we do right. That's really helpful. All right, I just have some random questions that I always love asking former leaders from a general authorities. You've had these opportunities to speak in so many settings, especially general conference, preparing a talk, what general advice would you give to a leader who has to prepare talks a lot? I don't know that I can speak for all the general authorities, but right now of course that's what I mean. I learned some wonderful things speaking in general conference. When I was an area 70 my goal was not to ever sit in the red seats up on the podium. Because they have to speak in general. Shortly after I was called as general authority, I got assigned to speak in the next conference. I went to all my Friends and said, how do you do this? This is awful. And I got the same answer every time. Don't worry about it. You'll think about it. You'll pray about it you'll study, you'll fast. And when the time comes to how you talk, you'll sit down, the lord of even the dark, you're right, you'll have a few people review it and you pretty much give it away the word gave it to you. But how do you stand up and give it without being more than a little nervous and friend of, you know, 20,000 people sitting right in front of you and 16 million people listening, not to mention the critics of the church, you are also listening for every comma. And the answer for me was, if you stand at that pulpit and you look out at that congregation and you think about all the unseen listeners and you wonder, oh my goodness is my bald spot shiny. Did I get my teeth well lost? You did. Yeah. Because it's all about you. If you look out there and say, the lord has given me some experiences and some insights might be helpful to someone. How can I magnify this opportunity, be guided by that ordinance? Those people he intended for me to be less to blast will invite me blessed. Then you're not nervous because it's not about you anymore. It doesn't matter about those other things. What matters is that through you that lord can bless those people. And I think that's a key not just to give him toxin conference. It's a leadership in general. The bishop stands up to conduct a meeting and he's saying to himself, how old were the people think of me? He's dead. If he stands up and looks out of those people and says, who does the lord want me to pass today? How can I help those people out there? Are there specific people do I can minister both in conducting this meeting and the things he inspired me during the meeting to do for people after the meeting? Then the lord will bless him and the truth is he'll have greater peace and comfort in his calling because he wants to spend time thinking about whether people like him he'll spend time thinking about how the lord wants to bless them through him. By the way, the most dangerous thing a bishop can do.

"He said, jokingly, if we were to start this brand new steak, what do you think will be an average marriage goal that we should have in the state per year? So I looked at my wife actually looked at me with the look that only a wife can give like, hey, you're on your own buddy. And so I thought, well, 25, that's too low a hundred, you're a dreamer, but I've always been taught this by a few of my mentors who said, when you're with mission president, when you're with stick president, will you're with the general authority. Be yourself. Don't stand up and straighten out your tie and be someone you're not. Yeah. Love that. So I said, with all due respect, other cook, I can't think of a number, but I don't think we should quantify the success of January single dolls by a number of marriages. Rather we should focus on helping them become better disciples of Jesus Christ, and if we do that, then hire sacrament attendance and hire temple attendance work will occur. And as a result, two righteous people through the spirit will fall in love and get married. That's the fruit. Of becoming a disciple in the Nodal stake. Then I sat back and I thought, and he was quiet. He just kind of looked at me and I just kind of said, well, that's just my opinion. And he put his hands on my knee and said, well done. Because you can not set goals on infringe upon other people's agencies. So then he said, I need to go do something, I'll be right back. So the man follows him, and I sat there and I looked at my wife, and I said, man, I've done it. I should have said a number. Why didn't I say a number? I should have concur. So he came back about a two minutes later, and he pull his chair forward and he said, brother chain with all the love of my heart, the lord is calling you to serve as a counselor in the newly formed young single dog steak presidency. What you accept. The spirits in the room I looked at my wife again and she was in tears and we both felt a spirit like this is what we're supposed to do. Obviously, the thought were creep into your mind as all of us do. Shouldn't they call someone that has like gray hair or a little more, you know, establish or empty nesters. So we went for a ride and it's been wonderful. I've learned a lot from my friend rob Ferrell and all the Janssen adults we get an opportunity to associate with. So you knew nothing of Robert feral at that point. He knew nothing about you. They were just sort of bringing in various individuals or considering certain people that maybe he.

"To hear the details. So you start the fist Sunday lesson and do you give some type of introduction before you jump into the role play, I assume right? So just a little about, you know, I told a little bit, just like I said, at the beginning of this interview or this discussion that we're having that. Hey, I had problems with my kids. I'm learning as a pair off and and I interview a lot of your kids and your kids are good and they want to do what's right. But sometimes they need your help and they want to confess but they're afraid and they need you to ask the first, take the first step, ask them the questions and when you do it, liberates them to be able to share it. Liberates them to be able to take the first step towards repenting and I, so that's how I introduced it to the parents, nice, nice. So yep. Back up because he said something in your outline here as far as this, a lot of adolescents think they they are supposed to follow plan a doctor's actually plan B and maybe break that down for us off. So I heard this as a story from that a general Authority told and it really struck home with me and I wish I could tell you the name of the general Authority that I had one but I can't remember but but he said that teenagers often go through life or thinking I'm going to follow plan a which is that I'm going to be worthy throughout my teenage years. I'm going to make it onto a mission. I'm going to come home from a mission and I'm going to get married in the temple. And then I'm going to live happily ever after and wage. You know, just in case I have a plan B and plan B. As if I slip up and I send or make a serious mistake, all repent, and I'll try and get back on the pass. And all keep going. And then the general authorities said this there is no such thing as plan. A and that just gave me of course there's no such thing as Planet. That's that's what being human is all about. It's about our heavenly father knowing that we would be imperfect and that we would sin and that we would need the power of the atonement. The power that is provided through the sacrifice of our Savior. Jesus Christ to be able to change to repent, the cleanse ourselves and become better. And when I heard that, I just thought to myself parents and teenagers need to understand. This not only wage is that the only way, you know, the expect the expectation that everyone goes through Plan B but it's okay. It's part of the plan. Yeah. And and I love that that way of setting up cuz I think, even as we teach, you throw at each other's, we sort of create that dichotomy of of, there's two plans, like, well, of course, you want to just do everything right and be good and follow the Commandments, like, of course, but if you do happen, I mean, on a rare occasion need, you know, Plan B, don't worry. It's there or you. And that's why we love Jesus and all this. But but yeah, of course, let's see if we can how far we can do plan a and that that dichotomy, we unintentionally set up through these, you know, well-intentioned lessons and whatnot. But sometimes creates this like, oh no, like I have to go to plan B, that was never intended. When in reality, there's only a plan B, right? That's right. Yeah, that's really cool. All right. So your June 5th Sunday lesson and you do then, you sort of give an introduction. Yeah. And and invite your son up or and and I invite my son up and and I also explained to everyone, you know I am One of the hardest things and women of the mistakes that I made early on as a parent and as a bishop is when somebody would come to me and say you know I have something to confess or if I found something on the computer or you know, discovered something that my children were doing and and confronted them with it. And we had that initial conversation I would forget to walk or I would neglect to follow up and and just see what's behind door. One. Right? What other doors are there. And and so I am and I said in this role play, I want you to observe you know, a few things about how I interact with my son. May I show empathy to him how I react when he surprises me with a Zinger, you know, how do I follow up wage? We're after the first sin is expressed or or how, and how do I probe deeper and then what do I say to him? Where do we go? Once we have out there that way, we have this in that needs to be dealt with and so that's how I set it up and and then we started the role play and the questions I started with the questions and started you know, just simple how you doing? How are things going but then you know, I took a very real situation and I said, I asked you to come talk to me because when I was looking at the computer, I noticed something the history that was really concerning to me and I said, do you know what that is or do I need to be more specific? And he's I think I know what that one that stabbed and then so we went from there and I started asking the questions and it started with how long has this been going on? You know is this wage Something that happened once or as it happened, many times come to find out. It's been going on for a long time. Well how often does it happen? Is this something that happens once a week or once a month or once a day? And then, you know, I asked what are the things that you've been exposed to have, you just been looking at images or is it videos, and is a videos of just a man, and a woman or is it a man in a man, or a woman in the woman and because, you know, unfortunately right, like I've discovered the hard way that it's not just what you expect, right? And so so I started there, you know? And then I just kept going and I just kept asking questions and if you don't mind I'll just run through some more of the the questions that I asked you. So, so then I started with, who else? It's about this. Have any of your siblings been involved. Have they watched any of this or looked at any of this with you or any of your friends involved? Did you send any image? Just anybody did anyone send images to you that were inappropriate? And then we started down the second. Most common thing that happens which is just was their masturbation involved. And when does that occur, and how frequently a step and happening and is it always associated with pornography or is it sometime not associated with pornography? And then we'd you know, follow up on on that discussion and and then once we were kind of sums up the questioning part of it, right? So but it was it was enough to show parents that there's additional questions that can be asked, and there's a lot more beneath them. Surface. There's usually a lot more between beneath the surface than you initially expect. Yeah, and I think I really want to underscore that because there's this thing, I mean, there's so much involved in the people are feeling as maybe they've looked at pornography, right. And maybe that's progressed additional things even to maybe acting out with a boyfriend, a girlfriend, right? Like and Thursday person walking in with with to talk with their parent order, the bishop. Like they're so buried in that shame and they don't know if they can trust that parent. You know, they don't know if they, if what if I tell them all your stuff then they get really mad and I get grounded. I never see the light of day again, right? Like there's all these calculations happening and so a lot of time there's this concept called spotlighting where an individual come in and maybe there has been it's going to be on pornography or or you know, acting out or whatever. And and so, but they'll say, well, I'll just admit to seeing once and then I'll see how long. They're testing the waters right there, to see how you're going to react to say. Are they going to love me and help me? Or they going to reach me and punish me. I mean, let's be honest. That's what they're they're looking. They're testing the waters to see how you're going to react and then like the and once they sort of get that signal of well. Wow, looks like he's handling pretty well. Like, he hasn't gone mad or like as a threatened, anything. And then with his probing questions, it's like becomes, like to become paralyzed with the ability. They can't, they can't even muster up the the strength to, like articulate the words of, like, yes, they've also. Masturbated, and yes, this happens every day and, you know, there's all these things, right? And so asking these questions, if you really are giving them an easy way to engage in the conversation by saying, yes, that was part of it. I'm glad he said that cuz I didn't want to say that. Yes, you know all I have to do is nod my head or whatever like wage. And then and then they begin to as the more information comes out there met with more and more safety. And then it's just like it just builds upon itself and it's just can be a much positive, more positive experience that way with it. These probing questions. Absolutely. And and write the the obviously you're not going to get beneath the surface if if you lose it will not answer to the first question, right? You're you're setting yourself up and and I think they need to be reassured. And so what are the things that I would always do? When interviewing is whenever somebody said something? That was obviously the truth and obviously hard to admit, you know, always start with, oh my God. That must be hard to come clean and say that, but it must feel good to finally get that off your shoulder yet. Thank you for sharing that with me. I'm really grateful you did. We can start the process of of helping you, you know, get that burden off your shoulders now and yeah and you could just see, you know, the countenance change its kind of like I've been carrying this weight and now, finally I can I can let it come off and I would recognize that for them, right? Like how do you feel, like, do you feel like God this is weight lifted off of you? Because I feel like, that's what I'm seeing. And I'm so thankful that you are willing to trust me enough to share that with me. Yeah, yeah, that's true. I love that tip. And and again, cuz in these interactions, it's really not about the pornography or the behavior or know, it's all about the shame, right? And, and figure out how to get through the shame and she can worry about the behavior later or I mean, then the behaviors gets a lot easier. That way once you get through the shame, then you can actually see some progress and another like I love these questions dead. Even like every opportunity an individual can take to normalize or destigmatize D behavior in. This makes a getting removes an extra layer that shame. So saying like God, I hear this a lot and ninety percent of the people who, who struggle with pornography struggle with masturbation as well. Like, is it, was that something that's going on? And then they think like, wait a minute. Like I'm not the only one. I actually had this conversation. A hundred other times like, yeah, yeah, that's me to like that, you know, again, you're morphing working for the shame of it. You know. One of the things I used to always say and I would say this joking, and it's sad that I could, I would even think to joke about this, but I did it. So forgive me. But I used to say there's two kinds of missionaries that go out on a mission. Those who have confessed to pornography and those who are lying because it is so ubiquitous right. That every young man that I dealt with had had been exposed to it at some some level. Or another. And but yeah like you said it's not about the pornography it's just not right? It's there's no such thing as planet and and when youth understand that, it's okay to make mistakes and it's okay to call on the powers of the, the atonement. Wow. It's it's a it's a liberating thing in their lives. It's a great for parents to, you know, one of the things that wage earned with as parents, you know. I think it was harder for my wife than it was for me, but when our first son, when we found out that wow, he's had this issue and it's been years. She was crushed. She was like, I failed as a parent and I'll say that I felt the same way, but not to the same degree that she'd, I mean, like it was it had a physical toll on her to the extent that she couldn't get out of bed for a day or two. After after that first discussion. But, you know, and with those feelings, obviously, it becomes hard to, to be a neutral, a neutral presence. When they start to share these things with you, especially if it's like your first child, like it would, you know. Yeah, obviously I was much better at it going through through with my fourth son than I was with my first son, right. But but that's that's our internet and I think one of the other we we were talking about, you know tips, you know, and tricks that I learned doing these interviews. One of the things that I used to always say is that as you think about Yourself. I want you to remember how Satan sees you. And how he wants you to see yourself and as your heavenly father sees you and as he wants you to see yourself Satan wants you to see yourself off a failure. He wants you to see yourself as someone who has made a mistake and is an awful person. Your heavenly father sees you as long as the person that you can become and you should see yourself as the person, you can become what you have done where you're at, has not changed your potential. Potential is based on where you can get to, and no matter what you do your potential who you can become does not change. And I just thought it was just, I often wanted to remind kids that you haven't ruined your potential by making this mistake. Yeah. And I love going back to that, you know, plan a and plan B that The embassy wants to think there. There's only plan a and you ruined it all. And there's no way to get back. There was there's no plan B to begin with, right? Yeah. All right, so let's go back and show you say you're in the fish Sunday and you go through these questions, just sort of do a role play of this. So, is there anything else to say in the context of the role play or and then, how did you transition out? Yeah, so, so dead, you know, I think, I, I can't remember exactly. But there was one more piece of the 5th Sunday lesson, which was how do you craft the plan to help them? You know, you've, you've gone through this. You are now fully aware of the issue, how do you help? And, and this could be, it could be pornography, it could be anything else, right? But wage, but I think there needs to be a plan for working with it and this is where parents really can lighten the load on Bishop's, right? Because Pepi In the home there with the child every day. They know what the child is doing. They know the activities they're involved in. They can check in hourly if need be right. And fishing just are not going to have the bandwidth to be able to do that. And so, what is the plan, right? Is it, do you need to implement safeguards? Do you need to set an appointment with the bishop off so that you can access those keys? Right? For as a judge in Israel, do you need to update your goals in terms of? What are you trying to be working on? Do you need to restructure your schedule? So that you take out, compromising situations, right? That you're not in front of the computer late at night or you're not doing stuff off in a locked bedroom or whatever it needs to be, right? And so making the plan writing the plan down and posting, or I think the important thing off Thing is not always appropriate. It depends on like if it's a house full of siblings, then you're going to need to be careful. But there needs to be in my opinion, a written plan that's agreed between the parents and the child, because you need what? What? Often becomes a point of contention is, how do you help, right? Because the child's, especially when they're older teenagers, you need permission to help them. They don't want you to do. They don't want to you to help in the way that you want to help. They want you to help in the way that they want to be helped. And, and you, we have to be sensitive to. That doesn't mean that we can't negotiate and find some middle ground, right? Because I thought we need to make sure that changes is affected and sometimes those plans change, right? It's it's like I don't think your plan is effective enough, but we'll give it a try. And when it, you know, when dead When it fails next week, which I know, it will will update with the plan and put some more of my suggestions into it, right? And but that, that brings us back to one more thing, which is in keeping with, there's no such thing as plan, a right parents think. Oh, we address this and it will never happen again, right? Yeah, it's done and over with right off and and that was that was one of the big surprises for me is, you know, the kids would have this moment and they confess and they'd cry and they'd get it all off their shoulders and they did find it on the computer again next week, right? Or you'd is there a switched from you? Put the safeguards on the computer. So then you found it on the phone, right? And and it's like just because I thought that you've been through, it doesn't mean that you're done, right? And and for my experience was for some of these issues, they're, they're ongoing issues that you have to work with and and no matter how long Need parental controls and and how, how much you you put safeguards in place. The issue seems to resurface again and you as a parent need to have the same reaction, the 2nd and 3rd and 20th time.

"And act like I've been looking at pornography and and part of you know to his credit and without saying anything, you know, it was a real job. You for him, right? Like this was not totally made-up, he had experience going through this and so it was he was nervous not just to be in front of everyone, but because it touched really close to home for him and we discussed ways that we could do it. So that it didn't expose him as a real situation, we made it clear that it was a role play and we didn't, he didn't use, you know, exactly truthful answers in every to every question. But I think that his participation made made the whole play effective because that's what we ended up doing and it was just real you know, and I think what parents really appreciated as they watched, it was the wrong business of it and and so that's how it played out nice. So I'd like to get into nitty-gritty here as far as a lot of these things cuz as As Leaders or other birth, Brakes. Ward council's, try and do this. It's just interesting to hear the details. So you start the fist Sunday lesson and do you give some type of introduction before you jump into the role play, I assume right? So just a little about, you know, I told a little bit, just like I said, at the beginning of this interview or this discussion that we're having that. Hey, I had problems with my kids. I'm learning as a pair off and and I interview a lot of your kids and your kids are good and they want to do what's right. But sometimes they need your help and they want to confess but they're afraid and they need you to ask the first, take the first step, ask them the questions and when you do it, liberates them to be able to share it. Liberates them to be able to take the first step towards repenting and I, so that's how I introduced it to the parents, nice, nice. So yep. Back up because he said something in your outline here as far as this, a lot of adolescents think they they are supposed to follow plan a doctor's actually plan B and maybe break that down for us off. So I heard this as a story from that a general Authority told and it really struck home with me and I wish I could tell you the name of the general Authority that I had one but I can't remember but but he said that teenagers often go through life or thinking I'm going to follow plan a which is that I'm going to be worthy throughout my teenage years. I'm going to make it onto a mission. I'm going to come home from a mission and I'm going to get married in the temple. And then I'm going to live happily ever after and wage. You know, just in case I have a plan B and plan B. As if I slip up and I send or make a serious mistake, all repent, and I'll try and get back on the pass. And all keep going. And then the general authorities said this there is no such thing as plan. A and that just gave me of course there's no such thing as Planet. That's that's what being human is all about. It's about our heavenly father knowing that we would be imperfect and that we would sin and that we would need the power of the atonement. The power that is provided through the sacrifice of our Savior. Jesus Christ to be able to change to repent, the cleanse ourselves and become better. And when I heard that, I just thought to myself parents and teenagers need to understand. This not only wage is that the only way, you know, the expect the expectation that everyone goes through Plan B but it's okay. It's part of the plan. Yeah. And and I love that that way of setting up cuz I think, even as we teach, you throw at each other's, we sort of create that dichotomy of of, there's two plans, like, well, of course, you want to just do everything right and be good and follow the Commandments, like, of course, but if you do happen, I mean, on a rare occasion need, you know, Plan B, don't worry. It's there or you. And that's why we love Jesus and all this. But but yeah, of course, let's see if we can how far we can do plan a and that that dichotomy, we unintentionally set up through these, you know, well-intentioned lessons and whatnot. But sometimes creates this like, oh no, like I have to go to plan B, that was never intended. When in reality, there's only a plan B, right? That's right. Yeah, that's really cool. All right. So your June 5th Sunday lesson and you do then, you sort of give an introduction. Yeah. And and invite your son up or and and I invite my son up and and I also explained to everyone, you know I am One of the hardest things and women of the mistakes that I made early on as a parent and as a bishop is when somebody would come to me and say you know I have something to confess or if I found something on the computer or you know, discovered something that my children were doing and and confronted them with it. And we had that initial conversation I would forget to walk or I would neglect to follow up and and just see what's behind door. One. Right? What other doors are there. And and so I am and I said in this role play, I want you to observe you know, a few things about how I interact with my son. May I show empathy to him how I react when he surprises me with a Zinger, you know, how do I follow up wage? We're after the first sin is expressed or or how, and how do I probe deeper and then what do I say to him? Where do we go? Once we have out there that way, we have this in that needs to be dealt with and so that's how I set it up and and then we started the role play and the questions I started with the questions and started you know, just simple how you doing? How are things going but then you know, I took a very real situation and I said, I asked you to come talk to me because when I was looking at the computer, I noticed something the history that was really concerning to me and I said, do you know what that is or do I need to be more specific? And he's I think I know what that one that stabbed and then so we went from there and I started asking the questions and it started with how long has this been going on? You know is this wage Something that happened once or as it happened, many times come to find out. It's been going on for a long time. Well how often does it happen? Is this something that happens once a week or once a month or once a day? And then, you know, I asked what are the things that you've been exposed to have, you just been looking at images or is it videos, and is a videos of just a man, and a woman or is it a man in a man, or a woman in the woman.

"Common issue is pornography. That was the most common issue worthiness issue. I dealt with with the teenagers of all the issues that I dealt with.

"I would say that. This is talking about corporate worship, and this is talking about Church Office of Pastors and Elders. And so. That's where I would go with that right now. Not. I don't even hold fast, really strong I love to read different interpretations of that verse and I think I've been sharpened by many different ones on on all sides. But. I don't think that I certainly don't think speaking against women as lay people as disciples. I think it be disobedient for not to teaching, and that doesn't mean that it's some big formal position. But that were to teach one another even informally and we do all the time. Bright, which is just part of being relationship I think. But you sounds like you would make a distinction between lay people and ordained people, and so I think that there's a special authority in General Authority and teaching as well. Okay. Interesting. So one of the questions and this is from one of my. Friends I guess. I was asking you know how can a woman meet the biblical qualifications of an elder and sounds like you might say well, she can't because she can't be an elder. Yeah I mean Mike Assumption. Is that that office is reserved for qualified men. and. That is representative of Christ's Lepers Church in a representative and kind of coming alongside as the bridegroom. As grooms, brides men. Grease men. But sharing the gifts that the groom church but I wouldn't. Even. Though that's my position I. Find it very odd house being treated as a first order doctrine that people are. Condemning, heresy over and things like that. Right which is very interesting. So yeah, that idea of their the essentials of the faith versus the things that that we can agree to disagree on where we worship but I still think that we should be in conversation as brothers and sisters. And there's plenty who don't take the same interpretations me who are uphold authorities scripture and are trying to be faithful to that. Yeah. I think that's fascinating. So that's one thing I hope friends that you get wherever you are on that issue. Amy You're committed to just to scripture to looking at the whole picture and and and acting based upon that So Yeah, interesting. Wow. Okay. Well, that's fascinating like I said I I. Love a love that you're making the bracing the conversation starting the conversation I know you've taken some flak in that I'm sorry that's been the case but I appreciate. Yeah I know but. I appreciate you sharing it and starting the conversation I think someone needs to you know I've got a eighteen year old daughter also who graduated. And I want her to to be disciples right. I want her to never feel like a second class citizen in the Kingdom of God because she is not the Lord created her for things to do right that will that.

"During classes. So. We have one on. Monday and Wednesdays and our teacher was talking about a really interesting. He shared a video about. like extraordinary and ordinary things. Yeah I really like you're never even thought about it I think it was like is by a General Authority of the. Church. So like one of the church leaders as name was Lawrence Korb Ridge think yeah and he was talking about why if we believe in things that are? extraordinary. It's easier to believe in extraordinary things when we look at things that are ordinary and realize how extraordinary day are. So one example he gave was like. Yeah, it's crazy that Jesus can heal hands or something if there's if there's a hand, it's broken, it's withered whatever. That that can be miraculous yield like that's pretty incredible and we hear that go. Wow. How how does that work but his argument was well. Yes that's incredible. But what's even more incredible than a healing? A broken hand is the fact that the hand in the first place even exists like our bodies. The human body is such an incredible machine like it's so well designed the hand especially, like is one of the most incredible in complex. Things to have ever been invented or created like we can believe that. So easily which we do because it's just part of our life. Then why would we believe that the creator of the hand couldn't heal it as well? Why that? Why is that so much harder to believe? That's kind of what I got out of it and I really liked that. Yeah so I. So the talk in case you ever WanNa look it up is called Stanford. and. So one hundred Rita direct quote said more phenomenal than resurrection as Bertha greater wonder is not that life having once existed could come again but that existed at all. Because you see like crazy miracles right in your site. That's pretty cool. But then you think about it like. Like the whole miracle of like birth. And just like how how were Hauer made. Raise it was pretty cool. I like reading intense I really enjoy analyzing. If we can tangent off of this a little bit I enjoy analyzing how? God makes things work so like science and religion Ms. brought up in our class today somebody was talking about I. Don't remember it's always brought up. Somebody's always gotta bring in like science versus religion to everything. I don't love that idea. I know that my my thoughts on this aren't originally either but. Science is a cool way for me to see the HAL. Of, how God makes the universe work. Yeah. He knows me like religion and the scriptures are important..

The second provides I 100% online platform where students will be taught remotely through their school within the district, And finally, 1/3 option would allow parents to homeschool their Children using a curriculum provided by the parents. I mean, this is the way to do it is is give people a choice and what they're comfortable with, But the thing that scared me was, the people in the Alpine district said. Well, that's fine. But I'm sending my kid to school without a mask. Anyway, I don't care what you say. I'm sending him with that. Yeah. Then if you feel that way about it, then keep your kids home. After witnessing an alarming spike in Corona virus cases Top leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints here in Utah amped up their support for masks Friday by asking all members of the beehive state to be good citizens by wearing facemasks coverings while in public. This message came from the Utah area presidency. The three member presidency, led by General Authority 70 Craig see, Christy Anson said. A growing chorus of medical experts has repeatedly reaffirmed that wearing a mask in public ones. And when social distancing is not possible will significantly reduce the spread of covert 19.

Supreme Court rules Trump administration improperly ended program for "Dreamers"

"That's the sound of people celebrating in front of the Supreme Court last Thursday after the supreme. Court ruled that the trump administration had acted unlawfully when it tried to rescind DACA, the deferred action for childhood arrivals program designed to protect people known as dreamers. From a moral standpoint, this is a tremendously gratifying decision. Dreamers about the most sympathetic people you could imagine, and the fact that the trump administration sought their deportation was again from a moral standpoint horrendous. That, said the supreme. Court's decision was itself surprising on the law. The decision was written by chief. Justice John Roberts who is ordinarily a staunch conservative. And as the fact that it was a five to four decision shows, there were grounds that a conservative justice like Roberts could have used. Had He wanted to decide that? What Barack Obama put in place namely the DACA program Donald Trump could remove indeed. Roberts typically has a rather expensive conception of executive power, and although we can know with one hundred percents certainty I would say ninety nine percent probability that several years ago Roberts was one of the justices who voted to strike down an Obama program that was similar to Dhaka aimed at parents. So what was going on here? Why did chief justice? John Roberts choose to leave his conservative. And join the Liberals to keep Daca in place. Sometimes when Roberts issues, apparently liberal decision, it's clear that what he's doing is trying to preserve the appearance of legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Voiding scenario where the public would think of the justices as basically partisan. Roberts understands that the public knows that the Supreme Court justices have different ideologies. What he doesn't want is for the public to think that the justices vote based on the party of the person who appointed that. That may explain Roberts's vote not to entirely strike down obamacare. The affordable care act some years ago. In the case. However Roberts's motivation seems to have been somewhat different. What seems to be motivating, Roberts is a kind of disrespect for the Donald Trump administration's unwillingness to cross. It's t's dots is and follow the rule of law when it comes to issuing important governmental decisions. We saw this a year ago when Roberts also provided the decisive fifth vote to reverse the trump administration's plan to put a citizenship question on the twenty twenty census. Census in that case, as in the DACA case Roberts relied on a law called the administrative precede. ACT, which is the law that gives a federal courts, the authority to oversee and review decisions of administrative bodies in order to determine whether they complied with the procedures that the law demands in particular. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that the government give clear honest and. Justify and reasons for why it's doing what it's doing. And both the census case and the DACA case. Roberts ruled that the government had failed to provide those justifications in essence. Roberts was saying taking the action in question was within the General Authority of the executive branch, but the executive branch didn't do a good enough job of explaining why it did what it did. This kind of judicial supervision of governmental action is crucial to preserving the rule of law, and it's pretty clear that John Roberts no longer trusts the trump administration to do that to be sure at the beginning of the trump administration roberts was willing to give trump the benefit of the doubt. He after all wrote the opinion in the trump against Hawaii case, the one involving the Muslim travel ban in which he upheld the presence authority to issue the version of the travel ban that was in play the time. What seems to have happened subsequently is that has Roberts has gotten a closer and closer look at trump's disrespect for the courts and his disrespect for the rule of law. He's decided to take on the role of defending judiciary defending the rule of law, and if making trump comply. And it may not be a relevant. That Roberts, also had to spend a good chunk of his January sitting in the Senate, listening to the impeachment managers condemnation of Donald, trump, precisely for his disrespect for the rule of law, so if you're wondering whether John Roberts has suddenly become a liberal. Take it from me. He has not I expect more conservative decisions from him possibly even this week or next but John. Roberts has taken up the responsibility of the judiciary to keep an eye on this president. And for that I think everybody liberal or Conservative should be profoundly grateful.

"Perspective so it gives you more of a clear picture actor perspective active yeah and I also considering writing an article on how polygamy is still practiced in the church in a spiritual sense. I know lots of people on his yet in the Mormon Church how people always want that that question touched etched on like are Mormons. Do they still practice polygamy to me. I feel like it's kind of a silly topic to bring up with Mormons because it doesn't really get you to the Gospel or the nature of God so I tend to avoid it until someone has come out of the Church and then talk about it but yes they did practice polygamy in the early years temple ceilings. You can be sealed to multiple women and it's super fascinating so they they still do practice polygamy but not not in the physical sense. One man is not gonNA have five living wives he might have one earthly wife and he might have been sealed to a woman previously who died but I'll write an article about that to clear that up because it's it's actually one of my favorite subjects sweetest thing it's so fascinating then we're GonNa talk about <hes> so the General Authority it makes up the first presidency quorum of the twelve apostles quorum of the seventy and they have church wide authority. They're the top dogs in the Mormon hierarchy. So the teachings of the Church Brigham Young on page Thirty Eight says the Twelve Apostles hold the priesthood keys for building the Kingdom of God in the world. This is directly tied to the profit. <hes> estrogen talk about who that is so the Prophet is the head of the Church Church. The Prophet is the president the seer the revelator <hes> there's are all synonymous <hes> there has been seventeen profits and the church's history <hes> Russell. M Nelson is the current prophet of Elliot's Obvious Church true to the faith on page. One twenty nine says we're blessed to be led by living prophets inspired men called to speak for the Lord just as Moses Isaiah Heater Paul Call Me Phi Mormon and other prophets of the Scriptures we sustain the president of the Church as our prophet seer and revelator and the only person on the Earth who receives revelation to guide the entire church it also says you can always trust the living prophets and quote if a living prophet gives new revelation that goes against what the pre what was previously taught the old revelation now passes passes away. A good example of that is that the black members of the L._D._S. church were not allowed to hold the priesthood but that was later changed by revelation in nineteen seventy eight which I think is I not ironic may be ironic but that's whenever will it did happen around the time yeah the Civil Rights Movement 'cause I'm. They just happened to match the church so every is it twice a year yeah. It's twice a year a the Tober. They have what's called General Annual Conference. That's where the Prophet and other speakers high bigwigs in the church will speak to the whole latter day Saint Church <hes> but he said April in October is when it happens that swear any new teachings their policies or revelation is now at the general conference. <hes> have you noticed I like the the terms that they use like president and general conference. I think it sounds so American. Doesn't it Herman the Mormon Church is the quintessential American religion. Is that something that said in American Gospel. Yes it is back in. It's so so true because everything about it is what us as Americans American dream. It's which we we have not touched on the whole one day you might become become Assad but every American things that they are their own God and wealthy a marker of America and all these things preview preview for an exit also as you can see the the Mormon Church has a hierarchy structure in the way that it set up. Everybody has somebody over them. They've got somebody beneath them. It's it's just this long chain of command with your the Prophet President leading. You've got your wards. The word president the counselors the they have deacons. We didn't mention anything about that. I don't think they have it if you have deacons I believe they're deacons are their twelve year old boys. Oh Wow pretty sure they're teenagers. Are the ones who administer sacraments because with the priesthood is more just the ward and Malki deck is the higher ups Narcan to briefly express that like I said earlier it's more in yeah but like the Bishop is the highest rank of the erotic priesthood they they're boys in the younger. Men in the congregation have roles because everyone in the church has calling you do you you give your time to have worked to do. Yes we'll tell you what it is they will they'll and I think the way it's given to you. Is that <hes> you have to either the stake president or the even above him but Sonn tells you what you're calling is Joyce yeah anyway so Estrin I have we're we're kinda shifting years and changing our mind because we have been recording a really long time so we're gonNA break this up as of right now. We're going to do three parts. Who knows maybe we'll do more but right now? We're we're GONNA break it up a little bit we talked about the structure and history of the church. We're GONNA save the nature of God for different episode but we're going to post it on the same day so everything you'll have access to it <hes> but it will be shorter and <hes> we'll just be on the nature of God so we're GonNa end this episode. We don't really have much exciting to say because this is kind of on the fly but we do thank you for listening. We hope that you do come back to learn about the nature of God and learn about the plan of salvation..
