WOW! DID I HEAR THAT RIGHT?
My mom was just talking to my good sister on the phone, and my sister needs help with a certain situation in her life -----
My mom suggested that she could go talk to her bishop ---- but then said something along the lines of "But then again, our family hasn't always gotten the best advice from [LDS] Bishops".
Then she said that they should still be respecting these men who have the mantle ----
OMG OMG OMG.
My mom is still being a Mormon more or less, but this is just a verbal admission that maybe the Bishops our family have had don't always provide good (or the best) advice.
This is like, serious breaking news for me, that maybe some of the things I've said have gotten through to my mom.
She's still very much a mormon, she just said she'd call the temple and put a name on the prayer roll...
But it's like seriously awesome for me just to hear a comment about a bishop's past bad advice. Yippee.
