A Question

I have three kids--the oldest is in the second grade, the youngest is in preschool.

I'm trying to take one class this semester. One. Basic biology. It's three hours a week of lecture and three hours a week of lab...and yet I've not encountered such a difficult task for such a little thing in quite a long time.

So my question to y'all is:

1) Is God trying to tell me that I shouldn't take this class because teh prophets have said I need to be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen until my kids are grown and out of the house, or

2) Is Satan trying to keep me from doing what is right, or

3) Is it none of the above but a simple illustration of the fact that sometimes you just gotta go through hell to get what you want.

Just thought I'd throw that out there ;)


  1. I'm gonna go with option 3. Really God might be working in your favor now... According to the new PR campaign God is ok with you having a career.

    But seriously, I am sorry you are having such a hard getting it worked out. If I lived near you I would try to help you out.

  2. Lookit me, so progressive i'm a bit ahead of god!

    It'll work out one way or the other. I know that. It's just a matter of whether it'll work out in the way that I want/need it to.

    I appreciate that, though. <3

  3. I have a dear DEAR friend (LDS) who believes EVERYTHING is either God telling her one thing, or Satan interferring in another.

    Frankly, I think she gives WAY too much credit to both instead of recognizing the natural and coincidental happenings in our day to day lives. I really don't think God is directing her as much as she believes because it contradicts the whole free-will teachings.

    Anyway, good luck with getting that all sorted out. Bio is FUN!!!! enjoy :)
