things I'd like to share with you,
but I'm scared too.
It's been a month since I last
wrote here on this space.
My last post was hard to share.
I think that has something
to do with me not posting
since that day.
Today as I sit here in
my living room typing these
words, I can see my reflection
in the computer screen.
I'm wearing my Fight Like Girls shirt.
The boxing glove is cheering me on.
Inviting me to continue to share.
First of all, gratitude!
I have so much to be grateful for!
My husband has a job.
A warm house to live in
Prophets and Apostles
Answers to prayer
...And so much more!
"I have set the Lord always before me:
because he is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved...
Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;..."
On My Heart
These came this past week:
My 2017 Powersheets and Simplified Planner.
Before when I've gotten them,
it's been beyond exciting,
and I've jumped right in to using them.
This year I noticed that I didn't
feel that excitement and joy
that I usually do when they come.
This along with conversations
with several people have
helped me see that I get to
cultivate more joy in my life.
So I've started researching "Joy"
in the scriptures and other
LDS church resources.
I've learned so much about joy,
and I'm only just getting started!
The one talk that I found that
summarizes what I've learned
was by President Russell M. Nelson
in October 2016 General Conference.
It is entitled "Joy and Spiritual Survival."
Here are a few things I've found that
can help me cultivate joy in my life:
-Look to the Savior in every thought
-Repent and use the Atonement
-Focus on the Plan of Salvation
-Keep my covenants
-Choose Heavenly Father as my God
-Nurture my spouse
-Guide my children
-Ask for forgiveness
-Choose celestial laws
-Help others come to Christ
So in an effort to cultivate more joy
in my life, I am going to start
now instead of waiting for the new year
on doing some of these things.
I'm going to work on living a more
I will also be working through the prep work
in my 2017 Powersheets in December.
