If all dogs are mammals, then all mammals are dogs.
That makes sense, right?
A few months ago I met someone with similar logic. They said:
Every boy who plays video games gets addicted to pornography.
Their Bishop told them that every video gamer who comes into his office to repent, comes in for a pornography addiction. Thus, all video gaming boys get addicted to pornography. Now tell me if I'm wrong, but aren't most boys who are working with their Bishops today, working on pornography problems? It is a serious problem, running rampant in the world today. It is everywhere you look. You used to have to go to a store to buy it, but now all you have to do is grab the nearest device with internet. What about all of the boys who are playing video games who are not going to their Bishops, because they don't have a problem? It is perfectly possible to play video games without getting addicted to pornography.
As we look at our little ones, babies, toddlers, teens, we think of all the hopes we have for them and what their futures hold. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, some of our major goals for our children usually involve full-time missionary work and temple ordinances. Though this may be true, what we sometimes see at church tells a whole different story.
When I was younger, a rebellious teenager, I made a lot of mistakes. One of which was starting to steady date much too soon. Ironically, just like my husband, my very first boyfriend's name was Matthew. He was an ROTC Army kind of kid who thought he was pretty cool. We were Freshman in high school, only barely fifteen and truly the definition of "young and stupid." Though we only dated for a little over a week before guilt got the best of me I like to look back and hope that I might have at least done a little bit of good in his life. I hope that I might have planted a tiny seed in his heart that the LDS Church is a wonderful thing to be a part of. I was by no means perfect and I hope he doesn't look back and think of ME as the epitome of what a Mormon is, but instead remember a small moment in which I did the right thing.
I've come to the discovery that the second pregnancy is much different from the first. The second time around you find yourself too busy to sit and continually think about your pregnancy. There have been several occasions already in which I've forgotten how far along I am, something that Never would have happened with my first. I also can go three or four weeks before looking up how far developed the baby is.
