What are your thoughts on coffee flavored ice cream or candies?

ChuckAugust 17, 2019

I raised three sons with life-threatening asthma (my oldest was hospitalized 19 times before he was 17), and have spent many hours---days, weeks---in hospitals. It's miserably hard on everyone, especially the one directly affected by it. I've also conducted the Lords' program on Addiction and Healing in my stake. I truly wish more young people could understand what violating our Saviors' instructions on obeying the Word of Wisdom by vaping, etc. can do to them. These substances destroy the will to obey commandments and live a good life; they also can lead to other addictive substances. Addicted people are most assuredly not in control of their lives---their addictions are. And despite what someone may think, these things can and do cause addiction all around the world. I've seen it.

pretty much I think we all kind of know this....but....from what I have seen and known not being born into the church....but joining in 1977..that the word of wisdom being broken shouldn't stop you from going to the temple...the only thing that would stop you form going to the temple would be alcohol and smoking cigarettes....because I know others who drink decaf coffee and tea....and some drink sodas that are cafinated...however, I bet there are other things that we take into our bodies that are not good and we need to use the gift of discernment...its best to be safe ...I don't drink coffee or haven't drank it for years when I joined but as I get older I noticed I love the smell of it...and would like to try some once in awhile....but I am holding myself back..because of the word of wisdom...
