The purpose of music in the divine service is to praise and honour God Psalm In the divine service, the role of music is always to serve, and it can serve multiple functions: it can deeply move the soul, prepare the congregation for the proclamation of the word, and underscore the word of God. Singing—be it by the congregation or the choir—and instrumental music expresses and imparts courage, strength, and confidence. In times of sadness and hardship, music can provide comfort. Not least of all, music fosters a sense of fellowship among listeners and musicians alike. In order to reach out to all participants in the divine service, the Church's musical literature encompasses a multitude of categories, styles, and levels of difficulty. The Church, in its worldwide activity, endeavours to preserve and maintain the musical traditions of the various cultures both in the divine service and other Church events. Music and silent worship before the divine service help those in attendance collect their thoughts and prepare the way for the proclamation of the word. At the beginning of the divine service, the congregation sings a hymn. Thereby all participants are actively included in the divine service experience.
Life will chuck all sorts of bouncers at you. Probably drop me a text or two. In addition to your religious leaders, there are counselors who specialize in interfaith couples. To answer your question: Even when he does, everything is on his terms. Whatever your leaders have said, consider their counsel, give it the weight it deserves, then counsel with your Heavenly Father about your own situation. After 15 years of marriage, I'm so used to living a separate life with our 3 kids. I also remember my father a stake president telling me the night before I got married that every single couple he had counseled through marriage struggles were not reading their scriptures or praying together every night. I've decided not to mention the CES letter or anything that could be considered "anti-mormon. But now, in addition to being a primary spouse, I'm also the primary parent.
As for conversion, she just spent every waking second thinking about converting people. Based on what you have written about your GF, my opinion is that you should cut your losses and move on. I'm really glad I found this post today. LDSdotOrg is mostly propaganda.
