  1. I thought the word "guides" might be a mistake, but there are study guides on the website.
  2. Lotions feel greasy to me, so I like to use Curel after a shower. It keeps my skin from getting too dry.
  3. From "God's Kingdom Rules!" chaper 6 13 Would God’s people be pressured into doing the work that Jesus foretold? No. The article “Be of Good Courage,” in the March 15, 1921, issue of The Watch Tower, appealed to the willing spirit of anointed Christians. Each one was encouraged to ask himself: “Is it not my greatest privilege, as well as my duty, to participate in this work?” The article went on to say: “We feel assured that when you do see it [as a privilege to share in the work] you will be like Jeremiah, in whose heart the word of the Lord was ‘as a burning fire shut up in [his] bones,’ urging him on so that he could not refrain from speaking.” (Jer. 20:9) That warm encouragement reflected the confidence that Jehovah and Jesus have in loyal Kingdom supporters.
  4. That's neat! My friend in Alabama just said they call on a lady who recently came to the US from Guatemala and speaks only Mam. They're trying to teach her some Spanish so they can communicate better with her.
  5. I usually don't think of overeating as a great badness. I really enjoy food, and especially dessert. Interestingly, I was just reading a nutritionist's blog/article that says there's no word in Italian for foodie, that it's a part of the culture to love and appreciate good food. This is some food for thought.
  6. I just love the original songs, they make the truth fun and accessible.
  7. Actually it was a great question, and I'm glad you asked it because I had no idea it could be considered offensive. The variety of answers and viewpoints are enlightening. And remember, we can't hear/get tone of voice in posts, usually no one's trying to be rude. 😎
  8. Wow, that blows my mind. Some birds and fish have the most interesting designs/patterns!
  9. Is that real? It looks like someone photoshopped different birds together.
  10. I think if I try to answer, I'm defending illegal immigration, which I don't want to do. But I think you are coming across as too black and white. Jehovah didn't make the borders, he knows we have to provide for our families. Sometimes it's about survival. As in the case of how many in the caravan feel. I feel this is too far of a statement, they can be considered exemplary in many ways. Service, commenting, study, fruits of the spirit, etc. I agree, but if he can't legalize he can still be blessed by Jehovah in many ways. Such as having a Bible study.
  11. Actually, the immigrant has to prove when they apply for residency that they can support themself and their family, if not, they need a sponsor. Once in the US, if the legal resident uses government aide, the sponsor can be held financially responsible to even have to pay it back, and it can affect whether the immigrant can get citizenship. There's a lot of wrong information out there, don't be quick to believe it. They are not allowed responsibilities, but they are not being disciplined. They are allowed to get baptized and give comments. My husband and I were allowed to marry in the Kingdom Hall and he was allowed to do maintenance. The US immigration system is very hard and very costly. Many people have no way to become legal. Even marrying a US citizen doesn't make it easy, although it has changed in recent years. It's better not to judge anyone by their immigration status, as most likely they are doing all they can to obey the law and provide for their families.
  12. I'm sure the brothers are taking the opportunity to talk with the people in the caravan, if possible, and there are always brothers on both sides of the border crossings. Probably where the people came from they were getting a regular witness, too, if it's anything like Mexico. Jehovah's making his name known. I saw three different carts today while I was driving around.
