All the blubbering made F&T pure torture for me even as a child...even when my convert mother was the one causing the spectacle. I didn't even know the meaning of the word phony, but there it was...front and centre.

especially when I came here to read and found out what many mormon families are like 'deep down.' We were the outcasts of the ward. I always thought we were the dysfunctional family. Then I grew up. My family didn't bear their testimonies including ME, who was the most devout in the family. We like to stay in the shadows and don't like attention in any fashion. I'd go to church and wait by the closet and then when I could, I'd go in and sit down. After "he" left, I would go late and sit on the sofa and leave before SM was over.
So we weren't those who bore our testimonies. I understand my daughter is different than that. I hear it from neighbors or see it on fb. He dad was that way, so she got it from him. DEFINITELY NOT ME. I always thought my beliefs were very personal and not to be broadcast. I find S&M obnoxious, but then most of it was.
In the singles ward, I heard many an insane testimony. The bishopric wives would sit at the back on those Sundays.
I'm sure my daughter probably bore her testimony yesterday and I DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT! Her husband wouldn't. He's more like her twin brother and I. So is the rest of his family.
